Q.

I need to find a property solicitor that offers cheap conveyancing in Penryn. What are the risks?

A.

This matter catches out many home owners, and can leave them paying far more in fees than they budgeted, and many firms claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing, however extra fees may increase the final invoice. Extra fees listed in terms of engagement needs to be fair and clearly defined and be applicable solely where the solicitor must complete unanticipated additional work on your behalf, which could not be anticipated at the start of the process.

Q.

Handling the legal work without using a Penryn property solicitor is becoming possible as a buyer and seller of a flat , but would it be risky ?

A.

Legally speaking there is absolutely no argument at all why a home buyer cant apply this approach and embark on the legal work without assistance. The truth is however that a lawyer juggles a long list of actions including drafting contracts or identifying the most appropriate searches which really need experience.

Q.

Do I need a chancel liability search? I am buying a Penryn flat conversion close to a rectory built in the 15th Century.

A.

Repair costs resulting from chancel liability can total hundreds of thousands of pounds. As a result of the Land Registration Act 2002, interest over any

affected land must be registered by October 2013. This will make it easier to identify affected property through a chancel search. The solicitor performing your conveyancing will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary. Church of England properties in the area include Mabe St Laudus, Ponsanooth St Michael & All Angels and St Gluvias.

Q.

For fast conveyancing to buy a £419,000 residence, what can we do to speed up the conveyancing process?

A.

Finding a proactive, diligent solicitor is essential to a fast completion. There are, in addition, a number of things you as the buyer can do, including, calling or emailing your solicitor, and chase them if you suspect any delays, answering any queries raised by the solicitor as soon as possible and if you intend to get a house survey, doing so as early as you can.

Q.
