Residential Conveyancing Manual is a thoroughly practical guide to the domestic conveyancing process, guiding the reader expertly and confidently through the stages from first taking instructions, through to registering the transaction and other post-completion formalities. All the steps in the procedure are considered: deducing and investigating title; searches and enquiries; planning and building regulations approvals; drafting, approving and exchanging the contract; synchronising transactions in a conveyancing chain; mortgages and mortgage offers; stamp duty land tax; and pre- and post-completion routines. The chapter on leaseholds covers tricky points such as the various statutory provisions which may be in play (extension and enfranchisement of a lease, the right to buy, the right to manage). The final chapter is devoted to the special considerations applying to newly built homes. A number of useful forms and documents are reproduced in an appendix.
The sometimes difficult issues - giving and accepting undertakings, avoiding negligence, meeting time limits, recognising possible money laundering and mortgage fraud, and costs quotations - are all addressed, as is the all-important matter of keeping the client informed.
Packed with hints and tips, and useful checklists, Residential Conveyancing Manual is a wide-ranging, up-to-date manual for daily reference. It will be welcomed by all conveyancers - whether novices or old hands.
