Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Fairfield

In scouring consumer advice sites for an online solicitor in Fairfield, many say that I must instruct a CQS kitemarked lawyer. What is CQS?

The Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme is the recognised kitemark for legal experts in home moving process, trusted by some of the UK's leading lenders. In 2011-12 the Conveyancing Quality Scheme was officially recognised by the Association of British Insurers (ABI). The scheme does not cover licenced conveyancers.

Please help - my lawyer says that chancel insurance is required on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Fairfield conveyancing?

The appropriate level of chancel indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Santander and Coventry Building Society. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to borrowers take out such policies.

When it comes to lenders such as Virgin Money, do Fairfield conveyancers face an annual charge to be on the list of approved solicitors?

It is unclear whether my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Fairfield building society branch on various occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My Fairfield conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?

Provided that the conveyancing practitioner is on the bank approved list, she or he must follow the CML Handbook specifications for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
