Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Barrow In Furness

Some advice if I may. My Barrow In Furness lawyer is assuring me that he is legally obliged toorder Barrow In Furness conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the Santandersolicitor panel. Is my conveyancer right?

You have limited options available to you. As you are obtaining a home loan with a mortgage company your conveyancer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your solicitor would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook conditions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Barrow In Furness conveyancing searches.

Please explain the implications if my lawyer’s firm is removed from the Yorkshire BS Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Barrow In Furness?

The first thing to point out is that, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.

I used Wolstenholmes a few years ago for my conveyancing in Barrow In Furness. I now require my papers but the law firm is no longer operating. What do I do?

You should call the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA) to help locate your conveyancing files. They can be contacted on please contact on 0870 606 2555. Alternatively, you should use their online form to make an enquiry. You will need to provide the SRA with as much information as possible to assist their search, including the name and address in Barrow In Furness of the conveyancing firm of solicitors you previously instructed, the name of conveyancing solicitor with whom you had dealings, and the date on which you last had dealings with the firm.

How does conveyancing in Barrow In Furness differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Barrow In Furness contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because house builders in Barrow In Furness tend to buy the land, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Barrow In Furness or who has acted in the same development.
