Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Haggerston

The vendors of the home we are looking to purchase have instructed a conveyancing solicitor in Haggerston who has insisted on a exclusivity contract with a deposit 10k. Are such agreements sensible?

There are a couple of primary drawbacks with executing a lock out contract (also termed an exclusivity agreement) is that it diverts attention away from making progress with the conveyancing process, so in the absence of it needing minimal or no negotiation then it may turn out to be a cause of frustration and delay. It is not particularly popular by Haggerston conveyancing solicitors for this reason. A further negative is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved buyer is very unlikely to be granted an injunction to bar the owner disposing of the property to another buyer, so the only remedy available under the agreement will be the recovery of wasted charges and, in limited scenarios, the extra payment of damages.

My Conveyancer in Haggerston is not listed on the Barnsley Building Society Solicitor Panel. Is it possible for me to retain my prefered solicitor notwithstanding that they are excluded from the Barnsley Building Society panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?

Intending to buy a maisonette in Haggerston. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the RBS conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Haggerston conveyancing practitioner is on the RBS conveyancing panel.
