Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Almondsbury

It is 10 years ago since I bought my home in Almondsbury. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been retained on the sale but I am unable to find my title deeds. Will this cause complications?

You need not be too concerned. Firstly there is a chance that the deeds will be kept by your mortgage company or they could be in the possession of the solicitor who acted in the purchase. Secondly the chances are that the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers obtaining current official copies of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Almondsbury involves registered property but in the rare situation where your home is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.

we are a couple who are hoping to buy a newly converted apartment in Almondsbury with a homeloan from HSBC Bank.We have a Almondsbury conveyancing solicitor but HSBC Bank advised that his firm is not on their "panel". It seems we are left with no choice but to instruct a HSBC Bank panel lawyer or retain our preferred solicitor and fork out for a HSBC Bank panel lawyer to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that HSBC Bank use our lawyer?

No, not really. The home loan offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that conveyancers will be on the HSBC Bank approved list. in the past, most mortgage companies had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for HSBC Bank

Is it the case that all Almondsbury conveyancing solicitors on the Co-operative conveyancing panel are overseen by the SRA?

Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Skipton. Almondsbury conveyancing practitioners have been chosen. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Skipton?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Skipton conducted the survey? Have you informed Skipton as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Skipton conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

Planning on purchasing a apartment in Almondsbury. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Skipton conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Almondsbury property lawyer is on the Skipton conveyancing panel.
