Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Aylesbury

I am progressing with the sale of my maisonette in Aylesbury and the estate agent has just e-mailed to warn that the purchasers are switching law firm. The excuse is that the mortgage company will only work with solicitors on their conveyancing panel. On what basis would a major lender only work with specific lawyers rather the firm that they want to choose for their conveyancing in Aylesbury ?

Mortgage companies have always had an approved set of law firms they are willing to work with, but in the past few years big names such as Lloyds Banking Group, have reviewed and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have worked with them for more than 25 years.

Mortgage companies point to the increase in fraud by way of justification for the cull – criteria have been narrowed as a smaller panel is easier to oversee. No lender will say how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society claims that it is hearing daily from firms that have been removed from panels. Plenty of firms are unaware that they have been dropped until contacted by a borrower who has instructed them as might be the situation in your buyers' case. The purchasers are not going to have any sway in the decision.

Can the conveyancing practitioners that are recommend handle auction conveyancing in Aylesbury?

There are a few auction lawyers we can connect you with those who can conduct auction conveyancing. Aylesbury is one of the many locations in which our lawyers have offices.

We just had an offer accepted to purchase with Coventry BS. We have called around locally yet am unable to find a Aylesbury conveyancing firm on the Coventry BS approved list. Can you help?

Feel free to make use of the find a conveyancing panel solicitor tool on this web page. Please choose the building society and type Aylesbury or your location and you will be presented with a number of lawyer based in Aylesbury or nearest you.

I have been told that property searches are the primary cause of obstruction in Aylesbury conveyancing transactions. Is this right?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released conclusions of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the top 10 causes of hindrances during the legal transfer of property. Searches are not likely to be the root cause of delay in conveyancing in Aylesbury.

I purchased a renovated Georgian property in Aylesbury. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Barclays Direct. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Aylesbury and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also check the position with the conveyancing practitioner who completed the work.

Why can I not complete my conveyancing in Aylesbury on a public holiday?

This is due to the fact that on completion the purchase price will be transferred electronically between the banks of the buyer and owner’s conveyancing practitioner and at present this can only take place on a working day. So you can't complete on a saturday or sunday either.
