Should I accept an offer on my home if I haven’t found one to buy?
From your prospective buyer’s standpoint, they are not going to want to wait around for you to find somewhere to move to necessarily, meaning that they might drop out of the process to look for a property that is more readily available. However, you might want to have the discussion with your estate agent as to the best way to manage this as part of the process of putting your house on the market.
It’s not always going to be easy for everyone in the chain to have everything lined up from mortgage offers, sale price agreements, solicitors, surveys and so on. Therefore, you can be honest and tell your prospective buyer that, while you’re accepting the price, you haven’t completed your part in the chain; if they are unhappy with this, your other option is to consider a short-term rental or moving in with friends temporarily to protect the sale.
With our experienced solicitors at low, fixed-fee quotes with 'No Completion, No Fee' protection, Homeward Legal is in the best position to look after your conveyancing. Call us now on 0800 038 6699 to get started.
Furness Building Society is our lender, what will I need to consider?
When arranging a mortgage to purchase a property, legal work must be undertaken in relation to the mortgage. Some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel', which may result in increased conveyancing costs for property buyers. Homeward Legal, however, can act on behalf of the vast majority of UK mortgage lenders to ensure that you will not need to pay legal costs to your lender's solicitor.
What average time does it take the lawyer to finish all of the conveyancing formalities on a detached home we are buying?
Getting contracts exchanged can take anywhere between 3 weeks and three months, which can be hampered by any number of things for example the speed of the seller's property lawyer, or the communication, with managing agents. Our chosen solicitors are extremely results-orientated, completing as promptly as we possibly can.
Why can conveyancing for a purchase take such a long time?
The Ackworth conveyancing process could potentially be delayed. We know how much extra stress these can cause and seek to reduce their consequences by chasing for prompt responses. Delays can include the length of time it takes for the managing agent or landlord to respond to queries.
Does your solicitors company specialise the conveyancing for auction properties in Ackworth?
Homeward Legal is very competent with property auction procedures. Very often unusually constructed auction lots like development land, are included in property auctions which tend to want greater examination. Solicitors therefore strongly advocate that purchasers select a property conveyancing lawyer before the auction so there is time for a title report.
Subsequently, immediately after the actual auction your lawyer is wholly geared up to concluding the conveyancing in a as tight time frame as required by the auction conditions.
How much can the fees for searches be?
The cost of searches varies somewhat, and will be dependent on your lender's requirements. Searches are paid out to a 3rd party, and will not be included in a solicitor's fees.
When in the process do you need to instruct a conveyancer?
If you choose a solicitor with 'no move, no fee' protection, as soon as possible, as the legal work can begin straight away. Prompt instruction of a conveyancing firm to act for you on your Ackworth transaction for a purchase may mean that you will the details of your Ackworth solicitor ready when you make an offer, or, if you are selling a property, prior to marketing the property, documents can be prepared to make it potentially more attractive to motivated buyers.
