Do lenders provide you with an approved list of Barbican conveyancing solicitors? How do you know who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel?

Barbican conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Clydesdale directly.

Do the Building Society Association intend to launch a search tool with a view to to identify law firms on the Earl Shilton BS conveyancing panel for example in Barbican?

We are not aware of any plans on the part of the BSA to develop such a register.

Should commercial conveyancing searches disclose proposed roadworks that could affect a commercial estate in Barbican?

Its becoming the norm that commercial conveyancing solicitors in Barbican will execute a SiteSolutions Highways report as it reduces the time that conveyancers invest in looking into accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Barbican.

Just acquired a detached house in Barbican , how long should it take for the Land Registry to record my proprietorship? My Barbican conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be certain that my name is recorded.

As far as conveyancing in Barbican registration is no faster or slower than the rest of England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any third persons or bodies. As of today in the region of three quarters of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Historically registration occurs once the buyer has moved in to the premises so 'speed' is not always top priority but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

I am buying a new build house in Barbican with a loan from Britannia. The developers would not reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative suggested that I not inform my conveyancer about the deal as it could impact my mortgage with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Been searching for a lawyer for freehold sale conveyancing in Barbican. We are selling, simple no mortgage to discharge, no rush, currently empty. Got an estimate from a solicitor for £1000 plus VAT which is a little expensive considering its so straightforward. Is it possible to find less expensive fees for conveyancing in Barbican?

As it’s a sale only, £500 + VAT is likely to be about the lowest for a Barbican solicitor firm.
