Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Dursley

Me and my fiance are intending to buy a 1 bedroom flat in Dursley with a mortgage. We wish to retain our Dursley conveyancer, however the lender advise he's not on their "panel". It seems we have little option but to use one of the lender panel conveyancing practices or keep our Dursley conveyancer as well as pay for one of their panel ones to act for them. This feels very unfair; can we not insist that the mortgage company use our Dursley property lawyer ?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your Dursley conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

Can you help? My Dursley solicitor is informing me me that he is legally obliged toapply for Dursley conveyancing searches asthe firm are on the Santandersolicitor panel. These Dursley checks cost a lot of money can this be avoided?

Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are obtaining a home loan with a bank your property lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your solicitor would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the CML Handbook conditions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Dursley conveyancing searches.

I need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor for purchase conveyancing in Dursley. I've stumble across a site which appears to be the ideal solution If there is a chance to get all formalities done via phone that would be ideal. Do I need to be concerned? What should out be looking out for?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?

I have been informed by various family members to expect 6-8 weeks for Dursley conveyancing to complete.This was a month ago. The paperwork was only received from the vendors property lawyer last week so now does it countdown?

Don't rely on completing on a certain date until contracts are exchanged. Regardless of the assurances the people you are acquiring from or selling to make, or your lender gives don't bank on them. More stress is caused to home movers by false assurances than any other issue when it comes to conveyancing in Dursley.
