When can the exchange of contracts happen for domestic conveyancing in Alexandra Park and do I need to attend the solicitors office?
If you are local to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Alexandra Park you are welcome to attend to sign contracts. However, the lender approved solicitors we work with supply countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide as equally detailed and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The signing of the contract is not the important part. A signed contract is necessary for the conveyancer to address the formalities when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where a long "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Alexandra Park)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
Does a directory service exist listing Lloyds panel solicitors in Alexandra Park on the Council of Mortgage Lender’s Website?
No. There is no such tool on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association websites. A small selection of lending institutions make their panel listings visible over the internet. If you are seeking to appoint a Alexandra Park lawyer on the Lloyds please use our tool.
We had instructed conveyancers located in Alexandra Park on the Clydesdale solicitor panel. They have just billed me an additional sum for handling the Clydesdale mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Clydesdale?
As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your conveyancing practitioner may charge a fee for this. This charge is not dictated by Clydesdale but by your Alexandra Park lawyer. Numerous firms on the Clydesdale panel will levy an ‘acting for lender’ fee but plenty of practices include it on their overall fee.
I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in May 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Nottingham are being pedantic. The Alexandra Park solicitor who is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Nottingham are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Nottingham have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Nottingham have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Nottingham may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
My partner and I are selling our house in Alexandra Park and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. A local lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using a web based conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Alexandra Park. We have lived in Alexandra Park for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to get clarification that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm already. What do they say? You should check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)
I am looking to sell my property. My former conveyancers closed down. It would be helpful to have a recommendation of a conveyancing firm. Im based in Alexandra Park if that affects matters.

We're novice buyers - had an offer accepted, but the property agent has warned us that the owners will only proceed if we appoint their preferred lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a high street solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Alexandra Park
We suspect that the seller is not behind this request. Should the vendor desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious buyer is not the way to achieve this. Bypass the agents and go straight to the owners and make the point that (a)you are motivated purchasers (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you are going to instruct your own,trusted Alexandra Park conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will earn their negotiator at the agency a commission or hit his conveyancing thresholds demanded by corporate headquarters.
My brother-in-law has suggested I instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Alexandra Park. I I would like to check if they are listed on the lender's approved list of lawyers. Could you or the bank confirm if they are on the panel?
You should call the conveyancer to check if they are on the lender's approved list. If that does not help get in touch with us and we can make some checks for you. Should the firm not be on the conveyancing panel we can certainly arrange a specialist conveyancing solicitor in Alexandra Park on the panel for your lender.
