Is the property over 5 storeys (11m)?

Many leasehold properties in Huddersfield are in large buildings which now require an EWS1 certificate to confirm if the cladding is fire safe. Thankfully 2022's leaseholder protections mean that most leaseholders are not burdened with the cost of remediation of any defective cladding, but you will need to see the seller's Deed of Certificate to prove that the lease doesn't come with a nasty (and expensive) surprise.

Be particularly wary of purchasing a share of freehold as the freeholders may become liable for the cost of remedying defective cladding. Our specialist leasehold solicitors Huddersfield are well experienced with handling all of these added complications, so you will be in safe hands with SAM. Property Challenges Solved.

It's unnecessary to have a local conveyancing solicitor as the process is the same throughout England and Wales. You should prioritise service and efficiency over proximity to Huddersfield, when choosing your conveyancing solicitor.

Many factors can delay conveyancing in Huddersfield. A simple transaction can be completed in less than two months, but the average is closer to 12-16 weeks.

CQS Accreditation

All our panel solicitors are CQS accredited. You can trust the Conveyancing Quality Scheme for the highest standards of conveyancing.

Fixed Fee

Don't bother with an 'estimate' fee. You want to make sure that your total fee is fixed (they can't charge you more later) and it includes all the necessary components. We build your quote based on each of the costs involved in a standard transaction based on the information you give us, with no sneaky extra fees.

Reviews

Check out their reviews to be sure they provide a good service and meet their timescales.

Communication

Not knowing what is going on is the most frustrating thing for a client. Many solicitors are too busy doing legal work to answer all their clients call for updates. With SAM Conveyancing, you'll have a dedicated conveyancing executive available Monday to Saturday. They'll keep you in the loop on progress, translate the legal jargon, chase your solicitor when required and email you about milestones.

Value

Get a fully comprehensive quote covering all your needs so you can accurately compare your options to ensure you're paying a good price.

Online conveyancing is just as safe as you protect your data on the internet as you would in any other transaction. Online conveyancing means speedier turnaround times on documents, more convenient meetings and lower running costs for the firm. We pass our savings on to you.

Yes, if you're buying and selling simultaneously, the same conveyancing solicitor can handle both transactions, saving you money, as you'll only have to do the 'new client' admin once.

1. Get a mortgage in principle

Know what you can afford to save wasting time on any false starts.

2. Instruct your conveyancing solicitor before you make your offer

Waiting until your offer is accepted can delay your transaction. As early as possible, inform them of any details, such as gifted deposits. An online service reduces snail mail delays and waiting for physical meetings, which can be conducted by video call.

3. Apply for your mortgage quickly

You can submit your application as soon as your offer is accepted. An independent broker can help speed this along.

4. Order your searches and surveys

Ordering these early can speed up your conveyancing process, especially if local authorities face delays. However, it is usually considered prudent to time this with the rest of your chain if a transaction falls through.

5. Get your building insurance ready

You'll need insurance from the exchange so research & compare insurance quotes, once your solicitor is instructed.

6. Paperwork (When selling)

Ensure you have your paperwork, including energy performance & FENSA certificates.
