Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Crowthorne

Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Crowthorne. Can you please explain the reason why all Crowthorne solicitors are not on all mortgage company panels?

Banks tend to restrict either the type or volume of conveyancing firms on their approved list of lawyers. A common example of such criteria being that a firm must have two or more partners. In addition to restricting the type of firm, some banks decided to reduce the size of their panel they allow to represent them. It is worth noting that banks have no accountability for the accuracy of conveyancing provided by any Crowthorne property lawyer on their approved list. Mortgage fraud was the main trigger for the rationalisation of solicitor panels from 2008 even though there are contrary views concerning whether solicitors sat at the center of that fraud. Statistics via HMLR reveal that thousands of conveyancing organisations only carry out one or two conveyances annually. Those advocating conveyancing panel pruning question why conveyancing firms should have any entitlement to be on a conveyancing panel when it is evident that property law is not their primary expertise?

The sellers of the house we are looking to purchase have instructed a conveyancing practitioner in Crowthorne who has insisted on a lock out contract with a deposit of 5k. Are such agreements sensible?

There are two primary downsides with signing a lock out agreement (sometimes known as a shut-out contract) is that it diverts attention away from making progress with the conveyancing work, so unless it requires little or no negotiation then it may transpire to be a cause of frustration and delay. It is not promoted by Crowthorne conveyancing practitioners as a result. The other main issue is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved purchaser is not likely to obtain an injunction to prohibit the owner selling to an alternative purchaser, so the only remedy open via the contract will be the recovery of wasted charges and, in rare scenarios, the additional payment of damages.

I am selling our house in Crowthorne and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. A local conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a factory type conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Crowthorne. We have lived in Crowthorne for 5 years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to get confirmation that there is no issue.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)

In what way does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my business premises in Crowthorne and how can your lawyers assist?

The 1954 Act gives security of tenure to commercial tenants, granting the legal entitlement to make a request to court for a continuation of occupancy when the lease comes to an end. There are certain specified grounds that a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are involved. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing. Crowthorne is one of our many areas of the UK in which the firms we work with have offices

As co-executor for the estate of my grandmother I am selling a house in Cardiff but live in Crowthorne. My conveyancer (approximately 235 kilometers from meneeds me to execute a stat dec before completion. Can you recommend a conveyancing lawyer in Crowthorne to witness and place their company stamp on the document?

Technically speaking you should not need to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally or notary public or solicitor will do regardless of whether they are Crowthorne based
