Can I be sure that the Belvedere conveyancing solicitor on the Bank of Ireland panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Belvedere getting recommendations is a good starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always suggest that you speak with the lawyer conducting your conveyancing.
Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Virgin Money. Belvedere conveyancing lawyers have been chosen. How long does it take for Virgin Money to issue the offer to the conveyancing practitioner?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have Virgin Money conducted the valuation? Have you advised Virgin Money as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Belvedere off the council. I have a mortgage agreed with UBS. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with UBS, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the UBS conveyancing panel.
My wife and I are selling our home in Belvedere and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Belvedere lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers are using a web based conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Belvedere. Having lived in Belvedere for 5 years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to get clarification need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You should check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)
