At what point can the exchange of contracts take place for domestic conveyancing in Eaton Bray and do I need to be at the conveyancers office?
If you are local to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Eaton Bray you are invited in to sign contracts. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we recommend provide countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give just as diligent and professional a job for you when dealing with you digitally. The executing of the sale agreement is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line is just a prerequisite for the conveyancer to address the formalities at the suitable time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where a lengthy "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Eaton Bray)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

I am the sole recipient of my late father’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Eaton Bray. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in October. I want to move. I do know about the CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship may be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in October. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be caught by that. How sensible a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the bank as this obligation principally exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.
Does a directory service exist listing Aldermore panel conveyancers in Eaton Bray on the Building Society Association’s Website?
Unfortunately not yet. There is no such directory service on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association websites. Very few banks make their panel listings viewable online. Where you are seeking to appoint a Eaton Bray conveyancer on the Aldermore please make the most of our facility.
We expect to receive a DIP from Lloyds this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Lloyds recommend any Eaton Bray solicitors on the Lloyds conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Eaton Bray solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Lloyds through the process.
I have todayfound out that Stirling Law have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Eaton Bray for a purchase of a freehold house 12 months ago. How can I establish that the property is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?
The quickest way to see if the premises is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Eaton Bray conveyancing specialists.
How does conveyancing in Eaton Bray differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Eaton Bray approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because developers in Eaton Bray usually purchase the site, 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 property lawyers 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 used to new build conveyancing in Eaton Bray or who has acted in the same development.
Should I go with a Eaton Bray conveyancing solicitor based in the vicinity that I am buying? An old friend can execute the legal work but they are based a couple of hundredkilometers drive away.
The benefit of a local Eaton Bray conveyancing firm is that you can drop in to execute paperwork, hand in your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local knowledge which is a bonus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who used your friend and on the whole were impressed that must trump using an unknown Eaton Bray conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being local.
