I am in the market for a reasonably priced property lawyer. Should I go for for a national conveyancer rather than a high street Wool conveyancing lawyer?
On the whole conveyancing lawyers in your neck of the woods will enjoy excellent relationships with your local authority, which can assist with the Wool conveyancing searches that your solicitor will require on your transaction. It can only be a plus if they have existing rapport with the Local Land Registry Office your area Wool, other conveyancers in the neighbourhood and Wool property agents.
The deeds to our house can not be found. The lawyers who dealt with the conveyancing in Wool 5 years ago no longer exist. What do I do?
You no longer need to have the physical official documentation to evidence that you own the land or premises, as the Land Registry have everything they need in a digital format.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Wool is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Wool are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Wool you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Wool may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
I am 18 days into a freehold purchase having been referred to a firm by the high street agent to perform conveyancing in Wool. I am not happy. Can you help me find new lawyers?
A conveyancer would have to be very bad in order to consider diss instructing them. Has your mortgage offer been sent? In the event that it has you will need to make them aware of the new contact details and have the loan are re-issued. Your new solicitor ideally should be on the banks panel to avoid added expenses and complications. That should be your starting point. Our search tool will help you find a bank approved conveyancer for your home move in Wool
Should I stop my mortgage payments with UBS once a completion date for my sale in Wool has been set?
You are best advised to continue paying any mortgage payments to UBS pending the mortgage being discharged from the proceeds of sale as part of your Wool conveyancing.
