Conveyancing experts explain challenges of Wolds local landscape

Wilkin Chapman’s experienced conveyancing team in Louth help local homeowners and investors make informed property decisions.

Confidence is growing in the local property market as interest rates started to fall in January. With local estate agents reporting an uptake in sellers and more interest from homebuyers much earlier in the year, awareness of the unique landscape across the Wolds, economy and culture requires extensive conveyancing expertise and detailed local knowledge.

Wilkin Chapman recognises that the area can pose complex challenges for buyers and sellers but with 145 years of combined experience, the property specialists in the Wolds have the expertise to empower local property investors to make informed decisions that balance risk with opportunity.

Claire Parker-Robson heads Wilkin Chapman’s Louth office based on the Fairfield Industrial Estate. She leads the firm’s conveyancing team and is joined by specialists Richard Brown, Rupert Houltby, Alan Duckworth and Lauren Thompson who are supported by ten assistants. The team serves a large rural area. They have the experience and expertise to deal with all kinds of issues that are more common around Lincolnshire such as the regulation of septic tanks, unregistered land, unadopted private roads and flying freeholds which are the kinds of issues that can prove a concern for buyers and less experienced conveyancers.

Claire Parker-Robson, who herself has 34 years of expertise in domestic property matters, and her team deal efficiently to overcome these more complex conveyancing obstacles.

The team also works with landlords, either with single rented properties right through to portfolio holders and managing agents. Niche buy-to-let lending arrangements with short/tight lending deadlines requiring enhanced source of funding checks are all cases the team has the specific expertise to help with.

With support from the firm’s dispute resolution team to assist with tenancy agreements and potential issues that may arise, the firm has the depth of expertise to protect landlords and their investments.

The team can also advise homeowners looking to release equity and through it’s military sector expertise, can support forces personnel in buying and selling property, having an understanding of the Armed Forces Help to Buy scheme.

National Conveyancing Week is Monday 11 - Friday 15 March. It is a time to celebrate the driving force behind the process of buying and selling property. It’s about raising awareness of what conveyancers and property lawyers actually do during the home moving process. The team work tirelessly to ensure smooth transitions for homeowners - especially in a market with rising demand.
