Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Andover

Is the fact that my conveyancer in Andover is not on my bank's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the quality of the firm’s conveyancing?

That would most likely be a wrong assumption to make. There are all sorts of perfectly plausible explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator indicated 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the solicitor is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Where you are concerned you should simply call the Andover conveyancing firm and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.

At what point can the exchange of contracts happen for domestic conveyancing in Andover and am I required to attend the lawyers branch?

Where you are in close proximity to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Andover you are welcome to come in to sign the paperwork. However, the lender approved solicitors we recommend supply a nationwide conveyancing service and give as equally comprehensive and professional a job for you when dealing with you electronically. The signing of the contract is not the important part. A signed contract simply enables the firm to exchange contracts at the suitable time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a lengthy "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Andover)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

The deeds to my property can not be found. The solicitors who did the conveyancing in Andover 10 years ago have long since closed. What do I do?

Gone are the days when you need to have the physical official documentation to prove you are the owner of your registered land or premises, as the Land Registry have everything they need in a digital format.
