We are buying a house and require a conveyancing solicitor in Helston who is on the UBS conveyancing panel. Can you recommend a local conveyancing firm?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for UBS . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Helston.
If you had a top tip for selecting a conveyancing solicitor in Helston what would it be?
Do not opt for the lowest Helston conveyancing fees. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.
Does a directory service exist listing Kent Reliance panel solicitors in Helston on the Building Society Association’s Website?
No. There is no such tool on the CML or Building Society Association sites. Very few mortgage companies make their panel listings open the public over the internet. If you are looking for a Helston conveyancer on the Kent Reliance please use our facility.
We have a mortgage agreed in principle with UBS. Helston conveyancing solicitors have been appointed. How long does it take for UBS to send the offer to the solicitor?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have UBS completed the survey? Have you informed UBS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the UBS conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
Various web forums that I have visited warn that are the main cause of hinderance in Helston house deals. Is there any truth in this?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published determinations 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 be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Helston.
Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Helston. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.
Set out below is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Helston
Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Helston is where the house is located. Can you offer any advice?
Flying freeholds in Helston are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Helston you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Helston may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
I have been Googling for Helston online conveyancing estimates. Can I be sure that all the Helston law firms that are listed on your website are on the mortgage company conveyancing panel?
The solicitor and licensed conveyancing practices on our directory have assured us via an online form that they are on the bank panel and agreed to advise us to take down their listing in the event of removal off of the bank panel. To date we have not been informed by either a mortgage company or a member of the public that the data about a specific Helston firm being on the lender conveyancing panel is not accurate.
