Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Babbacombe

Why do I have to pay up front when it comes to conveyancing in Babbacombe?

If you are buying a property in Babbacombe your lawyer will ask you to provide them with funds to cover the search fees. This will be the total of the cost of the conveyancing searches. When the deposit is payable against the total price then this will be required immediately prior to exchange of contracts. The closing balance that is needed will be payable a couple of days ahead of the completion date.

Do I need to pop into the offices of the solicitor to sign the legal charge? If so, I will instruct a firm who offer conveyancing in Babbacombe so that I can attend their offices if necessary.

Most approved lawyers for lenders undertake their work via Royal Mail, e-mail or over phone calls. This means that they can undertake the conveyancing transaction no matter where you live in England or Wales. That being said you can see if you have the option of going to the offices of your conveyancing lawyer if needed.

I am aiming to move home in August. Does my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you suggest a removal company in Babbacombe. Conveyancing firm was chosen before I stumbled across your page.

On the afternoon of completion you will need to pick up the keys from the property agent but this can only happen when the vendors solicitors confirm to the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be released. Subsequently you can inform the removal men that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a particular removal organisation but can help you locate a residential property solicitor in Babbacombe or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Babbacombe.

I am expecting a AIP from Bank of Ireland this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Bank of Ireland recommend any Babbacombe solicitors on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?

You will need to appoint Babbacombe solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Bank of Ireland through the process.

I was told three weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Nottingham. Is it usual for Nottingham to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Babbacombe is approved on their conveyancing panel? Nottingham have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Nottingham to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
