Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Wynyard

The vendors of the house we are purchasing have appointed a conveyancing practitioner in Wynyard who has suggested a lock out contract with a payment 6,000. Are such agreements sensible?

This kind of arrangement isn't frequently used in Wynyard, conveyancers are often found to direct clients away from them as they detract from the main conveyancing focus and if you end up losing your deposit then the solicitor is left exposed. Secondly, there is no assurance that just because the vendor has signed a lock out contract they will sell to you. They may be tempted to break the agreement if they are offered sufficient incentive to do so because an aggrieved buyer with the benefit of a exclusivity agreement will still be legally obliged to establish consequential losses from the breach and these may not equate the financial benefit that your seller may gain by breaking the agreement, no matter how morally reprehensible it undoubtedly is.

Why do I have to pay up front for conveyancing in Wynyard?

My husband and I are first time buyers - had an offer accepted, but the property agent advised that the vendor will only go ahead if we use the agent's chosen conveyancers as they want an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Wynyard

We suspect that the owner is not behind this demand. Should the vendor desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a genuine purchaser is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Speak to the owners direct and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to use your preferred Wynyard conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will give their negotiator at the agency a referral fee or hit his conveyancing thresholds set by head office.

I’m about to sell my basement apartment in Wynyard. Conveyancing has not commenced, however I have just had a half-yearly maintenance charge invoice – what should I do?

It best that you pay the service charge as you normally would as all ground rent and maintenance payments should be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
