Questions & Answers

Q. Should I employ a Taunton solicitor?
A. No, it is not necessary to use a Taunton conveyancer for your conveyancing. The only advantage to using a licensed conveyancer in the locality of Taunton is that you can visit the offices, but you should not need to do this as the vast majority of communications can be undertaken by post..
Q. I have to move to Taunton with my job. Must I appoint a solicitor before I have chosen a house or can I action this after I've made an offer on a property?
A. If you choose a solicitor based on their reputation then you can do so before even locating a property. But your lawyer will be unable to quote you a cost before you place an offer on a known property. Your solicitor can only quote based upon an specific property.
Q. My conveyancing solicitor says I have to have a mining search on a property I am buying in Taunton. Must I have one of these really?
A. Without a mining search you are most likely to run into problems with your mortgage company and your insurance company. Some areas of the UK are riddled with old mine workings, and these can cause subsidence. These can seriously affect a home. If is therefore most important to search with the appropriate coal board to find if there are any workings under your land. You may decide not to advance with the purchase depending on the outcomes of the search.
Q. My solicitor is offering a 'no win - no charge 'option. Does this mean I'll get all my fees paid back if the sale fails?
A. This appears to be a good offer - You will likely find that this applies only to the first transaction that falls through. It also likely only applies to the solicitor's legal fee. Any fees spent on other costs will not usually be returned to you. You can often opt for an indemnity policy which will get all moneys back to you in the event of a fall through - but you will need to speak to an Independent Financial Adviser or insurance broker about that.
Q. Please explain the difference between the legal fee and disbursements?
A. The legal fee is the professional charge that the lawyer charges for their time and expertise. Disbursements are the remaining sundry costs - many of of which cannot be avoided - such as the land registry fee and SDLT. Disbursements may perhaps include items such as identity confirmation, charges for the completion of forms and charges for searches and bank charges for the transfer of money.
Q. I've just heard that the person I am buying my next flat from has gone bankrupt. We have exchanged contracts and completion was to occur next month. Will the transaction now fail?
A. The rules of bankruptcy will prevail and the Trustee will now stand in the shoes of the owner. To avoid any breach of contract the Trustee can compel you to complete the purchase but they can also dissolve the contract if they feel it is an onerous contract; this is on the provision that you have not tendered the purchase money on the day of completion otherwise the Trustee must complete.
Q. The estate agent selling my house has put a sale board up stating SOLD - Subject to Contract. What does this mean?
A. Sold Subject to Contract is a protective device designed to protect both the buyer and seller prior to exchange of contracts. Whilst both parties usually intend to enter into a contract with a view to complete this clause does not bind either party in contract until a proper contract has been drawn up, agreed and signed (exchanged).
Q. I've received and accepted an offer on my house. My buyer is awaiting a mortgage offer before they can proceed. What does this mean?
A. Ideally your buyer should have agreed a mortgage in principle from a lender before they'd started looking for a house. This would have confirmed how much money they can obtain to fund their purchase. The application process would immediately assess whether the lender can provide the money based upon the criteria they prescribe and an 'Offer in Principle' in the form of a letter is normally issued. Sometimes monies may not be made available even though the lending criteria have been met because the lenders funds for the period may have been exhausted.
Q. Can I do my own conveyancing ? I'm not qualified to do so but I understand that I can buy a 'pack' that will contain all the forms I need to help me register the purchase of my house in Taunton.
A. Yes, you could purchase such a pack and D.I.Y your own legal work but there are no small number of pitfalls and without the transaction being straightforward you will undoubtedly come across snags and will wish you had not done this work yourself.
Q. My agent in Taunton has pointed out a solicitor to me. Should I go with this suggestion?
A. That is your choice. It is very likely that your estate agent is either on a commission for making the referral, or will get reciprocal business from the solicitor. In either case, these aren't good reasons for you to choose that solicitor. You would be better doing your own research and selecting a solicitor based on good feedback. Good Price + Good Reviews and Feedback = Good licensed conveyancer.

Compared to previous house purchases this was quick, simple and virtually hassle free. I was kept updated at all times and knew exactly what was happening when. The solicitor assigned to my purchase was Sarah McColl whom I can thoroughly recommend to anyone using these solicitors. She was very professional, thorough, and a pleasure to deal with. Many thanks.

Andrew was very good. Despite a long delay whilst waiting for the buyers solicitor to sort themselves out, he processed our sale efficiently and for the price quoted. I have used an online conveyancer before and it was horrendous - in fact, their errors did cause a delay with this sale. However, Andrew handled it well and I would have no hesitation in recommending your Company. Thank You.
