Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Wythenshawe

Having been suggested to visit your web site we were about to appoint conveyancing solicitor in Wythenshawe recommended using your search tool but have come across alternative costs illustrations via the web appear less expensive – how come?

You can find plenty of solicitors marketing theoretically looks to be very low prices. You should think long and hard as to how important this transaction is to you that you are willing to take 'cheap' risks over the quality of the legal work. Some hide fees deep into the terms of business. The conveyancers that we put forward for conveyancing in Wythenshawe neverdo this.

The owners of the home we are looking to purchase have appointed a conveyancing practitioner in Wythenshawe who has suggested a preliminary agreement with a non-refundable deposit 10k. Are such contracts promoted for Wythenshawe conveyancing transactions?

This kind of contract is not the norm in Wythenshawe, conveyancers are often inclined to veer clients away from them as they detract from focusing on the primary objective, namely conveyancing and if you end up having your deposit forfeited then the solicitor is left exposed. In addition, there is no guarantee that just because the proprietor has signed an exclusivity agreement they will complete the sale with you. They may be motivated to break the contract if they are offered a large enough incentive to do so because an aggrieved buyer with the benefit of a lockout agreement will still be obliged show losses as a consequence of the breach and this may not compare to the extra amount that the owner may gain by breaking the agreement, no matter how morally shameful that may be.

My wife and I are planning on selling our home in Wythenshawe and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. A high street Wythenshawe lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used an online conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Wythenshawe. Having lived in Wythenshawe for three years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to seek clarification that there is no issue.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. What do they say? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)

Me and my brother have a 4 bedroom Victorian house in Wythenshawe. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Barclays . I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the matching address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You need to assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Wythenshawe and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also enquire as to the position with the conveyancing solicitor who completed the work.

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Wythenshawe in advance of instructing solicitors. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. My surveyor advised that some lenders may not give a loan on a flying freehold home.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Bank of Scotland has different requirements from Halifax. Should you wish to call us we can check with the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Wythenshawe. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Wythenshawe especially if they regularly deal with such properties in Wythenshawe.
