Is Homeward Legal experienced enough to move fast on the legal conveyancing of residential property auction properties in Redcar?
Yes - The legal team deal with auctions throughout the UK and regularly do the legal conveyancing buyers at auction. Our specialist property lawyers have worked for numerous buyers and sellers at regional auctions such as Acuitus, Allsop (Commercial), Allsop (Residential), Auction House London, Award Property, Barnett Ross, Baxtons, Brendons Auctioneers, Countrywide Property Auctions and Drivers Norris.
Prepared purchasers will pick a SRA regulated solicitor as ahead of time as they can to allow for a full investigation of the auction pack well in advance of the auction day. After the auction day, the solicitor must be geared up to conclude the conveyancing process in under 28 days after exchange of contracts as conventionally required by the conditions of sale.
Should I list my property with more than one estate agent?
The choice is entirely up to you and your specific circumstances. Going with a sole agent is probably the cheapest option (although the reach to buyers is dependent on how many clients are on their books), while multiple agents will be more expensive (but will reach a broader client base).
If you’re looking for a quick sale or the market is rather sluggish, it makes sense to put your property on with a number of agents. If the market is buoyant, it makes more sense to place the property with a sole agent.
Whichever you choose, you should always check the terms and conditions so that you know what service you’re getting for your money and how much it will cost you once the home is sold. You should also understand if there are penalties should you decide to place the property with more or fewer agents later on during the agreement period.
If I’m renting out rooms in my house, do I need to appoint a solicitor?
No, you don’t, because there is no legal imperative for you to do so. However, it’s not as straightforward as simply leasing out a room to a renter because there are certain provisions that must be met in order to protect you as the renter and the person renting the room.
This depends on the room and where it is in the property, state of the plumbing, insurance, and a number of other factors. You’ll also need to draw up a tenancy agreement to ensure demarcation and rights for both parties. While you won’t necessarily need a solicitor involved, it’s worth contacting a letting agency who will have the experience and knowledge to ensure you have everything in place. Be aware that any advice you seek from professionals may come with a fee, so it would be worth shopping around first.
What factors can contaminate land in Redcar, and will they be checked for thoroughly?
