Questions & Answers

Q. I want to own a house in Highcliffe and I need to have the conveyancing work done when I do. I've seen conveyancing advertised on the Internet from £125. Do you think these prices are true or are they hiding things like additional costs?
A. These sites are probably only displaying the "Legal Fee" which is the solicitor's professional fee for their time. Any legal fee under £99 is very suspicious. This would barely cover the time costs involved in handling your conveyancing. You are very likely to find other costs heavily inflated to make up the loss. For example you may pay over the odds for credit checks. It is very naughty stating a low legal fee without disclosing all of the additional costs, some of which like the stamp duty fee cannot be excluded.
Q. I live in Highcliffe. If I decide not to use a local conveyancer to help sell my flat and use an web-based solicitor instead, are there any snags I should watch out for?
A. You should always see whether the lawyer is properly registered with the Law Society. It is also important that you familiarise yourself with any reviews you can find on the solicitor to be sure that you are appointing a firm with a good reputation. Working at a distance should not be a problem. It is also good practice to check that your chosen firm has a decent case tracking system which you can log into to keep an eye on the progression of your matter.
Q. My Highcliffe, solicitor is not providing a 'no-win-no-legal-fee' option. Should I insist on this because I know that not all cases get to complete.
A. Some solicitors offer a no-win-no-legal-fee product (so you will at the very least get this back) and it is a useful add-on. You could additionally give consideration to speaking to your insurer or IFA (Independent Financial Adviser) regarding taking out a reasonably priced insurance product that would provide protection for all of your expenditure in the event of the sale / purchase failing to go through.
Q. Who are the Land Registry?
A. The Land Registry is responsible for keeping a register of all land in England and Wales (there is a different registry for Scotland). Unregistered land will not appear in the registry. Registered land is indicated on a map, and is recorded as belonging to the owner. The Land Registry is a UK government organisation.
Q. Can I buy a property with cash?
A. No. There are money laundering regulations that solicitors and estate agents have to align to. Payments must be actioned through UK banks and building societies only. Funds provided from other sources would be reportable to an Organised Crime body of the police.
Q. My estate agent has asked me to provide evidence of ID as I am buying a house in Highcliffe. Is this usual?
A. This proof must be provided to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders rules on money-laundering.
Q. I'm buying my first home and Ihave been advised that I should get a NHBS Warranty with it. What does this mean?
A. It's a warranty offered by the builder of the property that lasts ten years from the completion of the initial build so it's only available on new or recently built properties. The first 2 years will cover the buyer against any defects found to be in existence due to not complying with NHBS regulations. The builder will have to make good any major structural problems found during this initial guarantee 24 month period. The next 8 year period is known as the structural guarantee period and the buyer will be reimbursed for any costs of putting right any major structural defects discovered to the extent of those costs not covered by an insurance policy.
Q. I'm placing an offer for a house in Highcliffe . How long does it take to complete the legal work once I've appointed a solicitor?
A. It usually depends on how quick both party's solicitors can work. You may have a good and efficient solicitor but if the other party engage a bad solicitor the case might drag on. An ideal situation where both conveyancers are good should result in your case being completed within 6 weeks.
Q. I want to purchase a house to rent out to students and wonder how to get some mortgage money to do this.
A. We can't give any advice that would constitute financial advice here therefore we would advise that you get in touch with a licensed financial advisor who can instruct you on 'buy-to-let' mortgages.
Q. My agent in Highcliffe has suggested a solicitor to me. Should I go with this suggestion?
A. That is ultimately your choice. It is very likely that your agent is either on a commission for the referral, or will get reciprocal trade from the lawyer. In either case, these aren't good reasons for you to select that solicitor. You would be better doing your own research and choosing a solicitor based on merit. Good Price plus Good Reviews & Feedback = Good licensed conveyancer.

If you are lucky enough to have Emma Liddle handling your case be assured that she will do a wonderful job. Throughout our conveyancing she was polite, helpful, thorough, easy to get hold of and kept us informed every step of the way. All in all superb and we would recommend her unreservedly.
