We had instructed conveyancing lawyers with offices in Alfreton on the TSB solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a supplemental charge for handling the TSB mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by TSB?

Provided it is contained in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your solicitor may charge a fee for this. This fee is not dictated by TSB but by your Alfreton solicitor. Numerous firms on the TSB panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.

Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Nationwide. Alfreton conveyancing practitioners were appointed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Nationwide?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Nationwide conducted the valuation? Have you advised Nationwide as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Nationwide conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.

I have instructed a Alfreton conveyancing practitioner having made sure that they are on the TSB conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

TSB will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually TSB will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your conveyancer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Alfreton postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with TSB, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Alfreton.

How does conveyancing in Alfreton differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Alfreton approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because developers in Alfreton typically purchase the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Alfreton or who has acted in the same development.

Given that I will soon part with over three hundred thousand on a property in Alfreton I wish to talk to a lawyer concerning thehome move before instructing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

This is something that we encourage - we would be pleased to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the solicitor due to be carrying out your property ownership legalities in Alfreton.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is an important person, not a file reference. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are calculated and presented to you for residential conveyancing in Alfreton should be the amount on the final invoice that you end up paying.

We are in the process of buying a house in Alfreton. Conveyancing is not over but we wish to have the amount we are are purchasing for private from the likes of Zoopla. How can this be achieved ?

HMLR as a matter of law obliged to specify price sold data on a register of the title for residential properties nationwide which includes premises in Alfreton. The register of ownership is an open document, so HM Land Registry would be breaking the law if they failed to permit access to the register.

In essence you can ask HMLR to hide the price paid entry but the response will be in the negative.
