Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bradford

Recently been in touch with my conveyancing solicitor in Bradford who conducted the legals 18 months ago requesting a conveyancing costs illustration based on the same type of house move (a leasehold premises and a freehold property) of almost identical values with a home loan from The Mortgage Works. I am now being quoted double. Should I look for an alternative firm of conveyancing solicitor?

The charges seem a tad high. If you you were to look around you could shave off some of the expense by perhaps £100 plus VAT. On the other hand, if you were content with the conveyancing the firm offered you mightlive to regret choosing an an untested solicitor. Don't forget to be sure that the conveyancer can also act for The Mortgage Works. You can employ our search tool to choose a Bradford conveyancing firm on the The Mortgage Works conveyancing panel, which can often include conveyancing solicitors in Bradford.

Can you clarify what the consequences are if my lawyer’s firm is suspended from the Co-operative Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Bradford?

The first thing to point out is that, this is a very rare occurrence. 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 at a cost.
