My financial adviser says he needs my Fleet solicitor’s panel reference for the Nat West conveyancing panel. What is the best way to find this out. I have contacted my local Fleet branch but they cant find it on their system.
Have you tried contacting your Fleet lawyer about this?. Most Fleet law firms will keep a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each lender.
Various online forums that I have frequented warn that are the main cause of stalling in Fleet conveyancing transactions. Is that correct?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published conclusions of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the top 10 causes of hindrances in the conveyancing process. Searches are not likely to feature in any slowing down conveyancing in Fleet.
I got the keys to my house on 9 March and the transaction details is not yet registered. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Fleet advises it will be recorded in less than a month. Are properties in Fleet particularly slow to register?
As far as conveyancing in Fleet registration is no faster or slower than the rest of England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can differ subject to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any third persons or bodies. At present roughly 80% of submission are fully addressed within 12 days but some can be subject to protracted delays. Registration occurs once the buyer is living at the premises thus 'speed' is not usually top priority yet if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Fleet. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.
Here are examples of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Fleet
Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared.
My husband and I are new on the property ladder - had an offer accepted, but the agent informed us that the owners will only issue a contract if we instruct the agent's chosen conveyancers as they want an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local solicitor used to conveyancing in Fleet
It is unlikely the sellers are driving this. If they want ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Speak to the vendors direct and make the point that (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you will continue to instruct your preferred Fleet conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will earn the estate agent a kickback or achieve conveyancing thresholds demanded by corporate headquarters.
Living abroad it is not practicable to attend my Fleet conveyancing lawyers office to sign documents for conveyancing in Fleet – will this be problematic?
No. Fleet conveyancing lawyers can deal with conveyancing transactions for clients who are based anywhere. You are unlikely to be required to attend a Fleet conveyancers office. They can handle all communications via phone, post and email - whatever works for you.
