Reasons to use our Crosby conveyancing solicitors

  • 1 The mark of a good conveyancing solicitor in Crosby is quality not quantity. The level of service offered by conveyancing "factories" (sometimes 'recommended' by large estate agency chains) sometimes falls short of the high standards of professionalism you would hope for.
  • 2 The companies listed on our directory have a mix of conveyancing practitioners, legal executives and support staff handling over one hundred thousand cases annually.
  • 3 Crosby conveyancers are likely to be familiar with the local Land Registry Office, Local Authority and estate agents
  • 4 No matter what any alternative on-line conveyancers say it could be necessary to pop into your solicitor to execute documents. Too many 3rd parties are already involved in a conveyancing transaction without needing to include Royal Mail into the pot.
  • 5 Crosby solicitors work in conjunction with Crosby estate agents, property finders, surveyors, mortgage companies and other professionals to make sure that the highest level of service is offered to buyers and sellers every step of the way, helping make the process as straightforward as possible

Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Crosby

I am not well enough to travel far from Crosby. I would like to know the understand why all Crosby conveyancers aren't automatically on all lender panels?

Mortgage Companies ordinarily restrict either the nature or the number of conveyancing firms on their approved list of lawyers. A common example of such restriction(s) being that a firm must have two or more partners. In addition to restricting the structure of firm, some building societies made a decision to limit the number of practices they allow to represent them. It is worth noting that banks have no liability for the standard of service supplied by any Crosby property lawyer on their approved list. Increases in mortgage fraud was a key driver in the reduction of conveyancing panels in the last decade even though there are contrary assessments about the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Statistics via HM Land Registry reveal that thousands of law firms only transact one or two conveyances a year. Those advocating conveyancing panel pruning question why conveyancing firms deserve any entitlement to remain on a lender panel when it is evident that conveyancing is not their speciality?

I am under pressure from the owner of a property in Crosby to sign contracts within four weeks. What can I do to speed up matters?

First, If the seller is applying a tight deadline to complete it is highly recommended that your conveyancer is familiar with the area as they will benefit local contacts and intelligence. It is even conceivable that they may have transacted otherhouses in the same road. Therefore consider using a Crosby conveyancing firm. Second, make sure that the conveyancing firm is on the lender panel. It is estimated that just under twenty per cent of Crosby conveyancing deals are held up or derailed after discovering a buyer’s lawyer was not on their banks list of approved solicitors. In many cases this discovery resulted in the legal process being held up by almost 21 days. It is claimed that this issue affects approximately 100,000 home sales annually. Most Crosby conveyancing practices can not act for certain banks so do check at the outset.

It is is a decade since I acquired my home in Crosby. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been instructed on the sale but I can't find the title deeds. Is this a problem?

Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a chance that the deeds will be retained by your lender or they may be in the possession of the conveyancers who handled the purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the title will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers procuring current official copies of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Crosby involves registered property but in the rare situation where your home is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.

Do the Building Society Association intend to launch a search tool with a view to to identify law firms on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel for example in Crosby?

Lexsure has not been advised of any plans on the part of the BSA to develop such a search facility.

It has been 3 months since my purchase conveyancing in Crosby took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £180,000. 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 asset 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.

Been reading online that Crosby solicitors are more expensive than Crosby conveyancers in Crosby when it comes to buying a house. Am I better off using a conveyancer or a solicitor where I am buying a property in Crosby.

When it comes to conveyancing in Crosby the costs are unlikely to vary dramatically depending on whether the legal expert is a licenced conveyancer or solicitor.
