Conveyancing In Winscombe Q & A's
If I’m putting my furniture and other things in storage, will the process take longer?
There shouldn’t be any reason why your move would take longer than a standard removal if you are pitting your belongings into storage. In fact, in some instances, it might be beneficial for the chain and your completion on the sale, since you are likely to incur fewer delays in the process because you can put your furniture and other things in storage before the event.
Whatever your plans, it’s worth mentioning them to your conveyancing solicitor so that they know the logistics on the day of completion, and may even be able to provide advice and pointers on what to consider before the day to ensure things move more smoothly.
When should I book a removals firm?
It’s very tempting to get wrapped in the excitement of moving home and wanting to get everything sorted out and in the diary. But, if you book a removals firm too early, prior to the exchange of contracts (when the date and time of completion is legally set), you risk the possibility that the date might change, thereby having to pay a fee to the removals firm to change the plans.
There is nothing stopping you in contacting a selection of firms to get a quote for removal and to negotiate the possibility of pencilling a date in but ensure you obtain agreement that this is subject to change and confirmation.
Will the form for fixtures and fittings list items such as the oven?
House purchasers will often be frustrated with the lack of formality around which fixtures and fittings ought to be included. Fixtures and fittings are regularly overlooked, which makes the early agreement of the fixtures and fittings form so important.
My wife and I are purchasing in Winscombe. How do I verify if the house is in a designated conservation area?
Buyers in Winscombe should be aware of numerous local areas of conservation.

A conveyancing lawyer will discuss the relevant responsibilities you would be taking on by purchasing in a conservation area.
What are the benefits of an online solicitor against a high street firm?

When should you instruct a conveyancer to act on our sale?
In the majority of situations, the earlier in the process you can instruct a solicitor, the better. The legal work can then start very early in the process. Some recommend postponing instruction until the offer is accepted, but doing so will put you at a disadvantage compared to better prepared buyers, or if your buyer decides to pull out due to delays.
