Souldappointing a Gloucester conveyancing practitioner make the ownership transfer smoother?
Generally conveyancing lawyers in your area will have good alliances with your local authority, which could assist with your Gloucester conveyancing searches that your lawyer will require on your transaction. It can only be a plus if they enjoy existing rapport with the Land Registry in your area Gloucester, other lawyers in the area and Gloucester Estate Agents.
At what point does exchange of contracts happen for purchase conveyancing in Gloucester and do I need to attend the solicitors office?
If you are near to our conveyancing solicitors in Gloucester you are welcome to come in to sign the paperwork. However, the lender approved solicitors we recommend offer countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide just as diligent and professional a job for you when dealing with you digitally. The signing of the contract is not the important part. Signing on the dotted line simply enables the conveyancer to exchange contracts at the appropriate time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Gloucester)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
We wanted to use a property lawyer in Gloucester for our house purchase. Our broker informed us that our bank Chelsea Building Society won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unduly restrictive?
Banks on the whole restrict either the type or the number of conveyancing solicitors on their panel. Typical examples of such restriction(s) being that a law practice must have two or more partners. As well as restricting the type of firm, a few banks have decided to limit the number of firms they allow to act for them. You should note that Chelsea Building Society have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Chelsea Building Society Conveyancer Panel. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the rationalisation of conveyancing panels since 2008 even though there remains mixed opinions regarding the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Data from the Land Registry reveal that plenty of law firms, including some in or near Gloucester only conduct one or two conveyances a year.
I am buying a house and the solicitor has mentioned Chancel Repair for which the house may be liable given it’s proximity to the area of such a church. She has suggested insurance. Is this really warranted for conveyancing in Gloucester

My wife and I have had DIP from Britannia who have advised we could borrow up to £300k. At what point do I need to appoint a practitioner for conveyancing? Gloucester is where we plan to move to.
It would be wise to instruct a solicitor now requesting that they open a file on your behalf. This will facilitate: 1) the selling agent to send out the Sales Memo to the relevant parties 2) the seller’s conveyancer to submit the draft contract. That being said, do not ask your property lawyer to order searches until you have your valuation report from Britannia and you are happy to proceed.
