What amount of time does conveyancing legal work require, in your opinion? We are selling in Penistone.


In general, the time needed to sell or purchase property will vary, affected by many considerations such as if the property being bought or sold is leasehold. Our solicitors ensure every sale receives fast and efficient service.


Penistone lawyers conduct some searches if acting for a home buyer, but which actual searches?


If obtaining a mortgage the mortgage lender mandates a solicitor to get at least the following Local Authority, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental,, and possibly specific searches, which may include a Planning report.


Holmesdale Building Society is going to be our lender - is there anything we need to consider?


Until recently, most solicitors could act for the majority lenders. In some cases, lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. We will act for all large mortgage lenders so that you will not be required to pay legal fees for your lender's solicitor.


What type of local environmental checks in relation to the uncertain risk of possible flooding around South Yorkshire will a lawyer in Penistone actually apply for?


A necessary step in the legal due diligence process involves your conveyancing solicitor applying for conveyancing and environmental searches that give you some details with respect to Penistone area flood risk. Furthermore a solicitor in Penistone will sometimes recommend a more detailed (e.g. Homcheck) detailed flood search. On (28-Nov-12) there were no warnings around the River Don at Penistone Bridge, Wordsworth Court and Wentworth Meadows, Penistone at the River Don and its tributaries from Penistone to Kelham Island in Sheffield


Do fixtures and fittings include things like kitchen units?


There is no clear definition of fixtures and fittings, potentially leading to anger after a sale completes and items are missing. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction.


What are Penistone 'conveyancing searches'?


Conveyancing searches are a prescribed pack of enquiries carried out in the interest of the purchaser. These are unrelated to a building survey and do not include information relating to a property's structure.
