Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Easton

Can you recommend a Santander sanctioned Easton conveyancing firm that can complete within 28 days? Would it be better to use a local Easton conveyancer or an online conveyancer?

We can recommend some very good Easton conveyancing firms. You can also walk up the main road in Easton.

Select the lawyer that appears most efficient.

Are the Easton conveyancing solicitors identified as being on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel, together with their details provided by Leeds Building Society?

Easton conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Leeds Building Society directly.

Please explain the implications if my lawyer’s firm is expelled from the HSBC Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Easton?

First, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

My conveyancer has informed me that defective lease insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Easton?

The right level of defective lease indemnity insurance depends on who your lender is. It would differ for example between Barclays and Coventry Building Society. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.

I am the single beneficiary of my late grandmother’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Easton. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in April. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership will be treated the same way as if I'd bought the house in April. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The CML handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be caught by that. How practical a view lenders take of it, depend on the lender as this provision is principally there to pick up on subsales or the flipping of properties.

I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in January 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Leeds Building Society are being a right pain. The Easton solicitor who is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Leeds Building Society are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Leeds Building Society have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Leeds Building Society have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Leeds Building Society may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

My relative advised me that if I am buying in Easton I should ask my conveyancer to execute a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?

This is a search is occasionally included in the estimate for your Easton conveyancing searches. It is not a small document of more than thirty pages, listing and detailing important information about Easton around the property and the people living there. It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Easton Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime statistics, Easton Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information concerning Easton.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up during conveyancing in Easton?

Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Easton. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
