About to purchase house in Barnes. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel.

The quickest method to see if the property is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Barnes conveyancing specialists.

How does conveyancing in Barnes differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Barnes approach us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Barnes usually acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Barnes or who has acted in the same development.

I'm buying a apartment in Barnes. I can find my conveyancer's company on the CLC list, but I can't see my conveyancer's name as listed on the regulator's website. Is this a big problem?

Not all staff in the company must be listed by the regulator. Provided there is someone qualified to 'oversee' the transaction, the actual day-to-day activity can be conducted by unqualified staff.
