Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Fowey

Is the fact that my conveyancer in Fowey is not on my lender's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of his work?

It would be unwise to jump to that conclusion. There are all sorts of perfectly plausible explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator indicated 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) lack of transactions (2) the solicitor is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should simply call the Fowey conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your mortgage company.

I have a decision in principle. The bank mentioned the home loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to use their panel lawyer as I would prefer to instruct a Fowey based conveyancing firm?

You should check but the the probability is that appoint one of their panel solicitors where you want the "fee-free" deal. Call the lender to explore if they allow a cash alternative. It is not unheard for a lender to give a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case you could put that amount towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor in Fowey.

I have been told that property searches are the number one cause of obstruction in Fowey conveyancing transactions. Is there any truth in this?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published determinations of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature within the most frequent causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are unlikely to feature in any slowing down conveyancing in Fowey.
