If you are so inclined have a stab you can undertake the conveyancing without having an instructed Brackley property solicitor .
The truth is however that a solicitor typically handles a large array of exercises e.g. chasing retention releases and interpreting management accounts most of which are more safely handled with appropriate the relevant training.
Fundamentally have a go conveyancers do not have sufficient cover which all solicitors firms are bound to carry.
The home I’m buying has been empty for two years; what questions should I be asking the solicitor, the estate agent, and the surveyor?
If a home has been empty for a considerable period (such as the two years mentioned here), there’s usually a reason for it. There is estimated to be around a quarter of a million properties in the country that have been empty for more than 6 months.
The primary reason is that the owner hasn’t the funds to renovate the property, or they’ve started gutting the place and run out of money to take it further, or perhaps there’s been a significant problem (e.g. fire or flood are common instances). Most likely, these properties will come up at auction.
Your estate agent will be aware of its history if the property is on their books, so you can find out a lot from them, the council will have an empty property officer, and the Land Registry will have information on the deeds. As far as the solicitor is concerned, they will establish the position on the property as part of the conveyancing, while the surveyor will have experience of checking out such properties, with the advice that you order a Building Survey (the most detailed of the options) to check out its structural integrity. Note that mortgage lenders will be more reluctant to offer a loan on such homes.
Ultimately, the ball is in your court and, if you want to pursue buying such a property, you need to be prepared to do the research, which can take up a lot of time.
The moving process can be bewildering and stressful. Let Homeward Legal look after the legal side of things for you and we'll guide you through the process from start to end. Call 0800 038 6699 to find out more.
Can I change the purpose of use for a purchase as part of the conveyancing procedure?
Putting in a planning request to change the use of part or all of a property is a straightforward process and you can deal directly with the local authority, which authorises plans and requests. However, tying it in with a planned purchase of a property has its own problems, since you don’t yet formally own the property, and the length of time to get through the planning process (with no guarantee of success) will need to be factored into the purchase duration, which the seller may not agree to.
We would advise you to either buy the property and then put in the planning request after completion (or exchange at the very earliest), or buy a property that’s already fit for your purposes. Or you might be lucky to find a property that already has the relevant planning consents in place.
What factors are key to ensure a fast exchange and completion?
It is well established that a fast conveyancing transaction is the key to instruct a proactive and experienced solicitor. There are several things you can also do to get moving sooner. These include:
- clarifying your mortgage lender's requirements
- pushing the solicitor to begin enquiries as soon as possible
- promptly answering your solicitor's questions
In about five weeks we are likely to be finally moving from our semi detached house near Brackley to a home in Wootton , what is the right point to book a removals firm?
The most sensible course of action is for home movers to delay making arrangements with a removal firm until such time as both sides have scheduled your move date which occurs after signing of contracts. Frequently residential removals firms might impose a re booking fee .
