Does my Longton conveyancing solicitor apply for any property conveyancing searches on the Lancashire period semi-detached home I am buying?
When you are applying for a mortgage a mortgage lender mandates particular searches, including - Local Authority (personal or official), Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW or personal) and Environmental and, depending on certain criteria, less common searches for example Chancel Repair Liability Search.
Can you give the reasons why sale conveyancing legal work goes on for so long?
The legal work needed to sell or purchase a property could be exposed to significant delays, we, however, aim to reduce the consequences of these delays by using fast search providers. Reasons for delay include problems with arranging a mortgage.
How much will the searches in Longton be?
The cost of Longton searches can vary, depending on the searches required by your lender. Searches are disbursements paid to a third party.
The current owner looks to have added unsympathetic stone cladding to the house which we think might break the Longton Town Centre conservation area criteria.
South Ribble local authority searches carried out by your solicitor should find out if the property is inside a conservation area and evidence of the appropriate permissions for additions to the property will be supplied.
What length of time will be accounted for conveyancing legal work generally require?
For most property, the amount of time needed to sell or purchase residential property varies. This is dependent on a broad set of considerations which may include whether there is a mortgage. We work hard to ensure every sale is handled as fast as possible, without compromising on service.
