Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Faversham

My husband and I are hoping to acquire a 3 bedroom flat in Faversham with a mortgage. We like our Faversham conveyancer, but the lender advise she’s not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the mortgage company panel firms or retain our Faversham property lawyer as well as pay for one of their panel lawyers to represent them. We regard this is unjust; is there anything we can do?

No, not really. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’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. Another option that might be available is for your Faversham conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

Finally the sale completed on my house in Faversham last December but our buyer keeps Skype messaging every few hours complaining that his solicitor is waiting to hear from myconveyancer. What should my lawyer have done following completion?

Following your disposal your conveyancer should send the transfer deeds and all of the paperwork to the buyer’s lawyers. Depending on the transaction, your lawyer must also evidence that the home loan has been paid off to the purchasers conveyancers. There are no post completion formalities unique to conveyancing in Faversham.

We are downsizing from our home in Faversham and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. Any local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using an online conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Faversham. Having lived in Faversham for 5 years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification 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 check with 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 sickness)

I have todaydiscovered that Stirling Law have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Faversham for a purchase of a leasehold flat 12 months ago. How can I establish that my home is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?
