Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Chilwell

My wife and I are planning to purchase a property in Chilwell and have appointed a Chilwell conveyancing practice. Within the past 48 hours our conveyancer has forwarded the sale agreement to be signed with a detailed report with the expectation that exchange is imminent. Barclays Direct have this morning contacted us to advise us that they have now hit a problem as our Chilwell lawyer is not on their approved list of lawyers. What do we do from here?

If you are buying a property requiring a mortgage it is conventional for the purchasers' lawyers to also act for the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your solicitor should contact your lender and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You don't have to instruct a firm on the bank's conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Chilwell solicitors, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it will likely delay the transaction as you have another set of people involved.

What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Chilwell? Why is this being asked of me?

Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering regulations require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to check the identity of the person or body they are dealing with prior to agreeing to accepting their conveyancing instruction. The Client Care letter that you are required to sign should reaffirm this. Your lender will also require certain documents to be checked. If you are unwilling to hand over ID verification documents, your solicitor would not be able to accept instructions from you.

How does conveyancing in Chilwell differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Chilwell approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because house builders in Chilwell tend to purchase 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 conveyancers 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Chilwell or who has acted in the same development.

I need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor for some conveyancing in Chilwell. I happened to stumble across a site which seems to have the ideal answer If it is possible to get all formalities done via phone that would be preferable. Do I need to be wary? What are the potential pitfalls?
