Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Calcot

Having sold my house in Calcot last October yet the purchaser is whats apping every few hours complaining that their conveyancer is waiting to hear from mysolicitor. What should my lawyer have done now that I have sold?

After completion of your sale your solicitor is committed to forward the transfer deeds and all supplemental paperwork to the purchaser's conveyancer. Depending on the transaction, your conveyancer must also send confirmation that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been redeemed to the buyers conveyancers. There is unlikely to be post completion formalities specific conveyancing in Calcot.

Can you clarify what the consequences are if my solicitor is suspended from the Lloyds Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Calcot?

First, 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 at a cost.

My uncle advised me that in purchasing a property in Calcot there could be a number of restrictions affecting the ability to carry out external alterations to a property. Is this right?

There are a number of properties in Calcot which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to perform external variations. Part of the conveyancing in Calcot should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.

We were going to get a OIP from Kent Reliance this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Kent Reliance recommend any Calcot solicitors on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Calcot solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Kent Reliance through the process.

After months of negotiation I have agreed a price on a house in Calcot. My financial adviser recommended their conveyancers. I paid an on account payment of £200. Soon after, the lawyer contacted me to say that they were not on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Coventry BS panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

I opted to have a survey carried out on a house in Calcot before appointing solicitors. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. My surveyor has said that some mortgage companies tend refuse to give a loan on a flying freehold home.
