Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Childs Hill

We're in Childs Hill, FTBs purchasing with a mortgage (lender is Yorkshire BS , and our solicitor is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?

The fact that your lawyer is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no solicitor should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.

I note that there are debates on Chancel Insurance on online forums. Do I need this when acquiring a house in Childs Hill? or Apparently there is a law dating back centuries that could mean that homeowners living in a parish church boundary will be compelled to contribute towards repairs towards the chancel in proximity to the church. Is this appropriate for conveyancing in Childs Hill?

Unless a prior purchase of the premises completed post 12 October 2013 you can expect solicitors carrying out conveyancing in Childs Hill to remain encouraging a chancel search and or chancel repair liability insurance.

five months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Childs Hill concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

I was advised by two or three local estate agents in Childs Hill to choose a property lawyer using your seach tool. Is there a financial upside for Estate Agents to offer your site ahead of another?

We refuse to give any referral fee for pointing buyers and sellers our way. We found it would be just too difficult a fee as home movers will think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

I am a couple of weeks into a residential purchase having been directed to a firm by the estate agent to carry out the conveyancing in Childs Hill. I am not happy. Could you you assist me in finding new lawyers?

A lawyer would need to be very poor to suggest diss instructing them. Has your mortgage offer been sent? If so you need to inform them of the new lawyer and ensure the mortgage documents are re-issued. The conveyancer needs to be on the mortgage company approved list to avoid added expenses and complications. So that should be your first question of the new solicitors.
