Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Highbury

My partner and I are acquiring a new build apartment in Highbury and my conveyancer is informing me that she is duty bound to the bank to disclose incentives from the developer. The Estate Agents are hassling me to exchange and I have no desire to prolong the conveyancing. is my lawyer playing by the book?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your property lawyer. A precondition to being on a mortgage company panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

When can the exchange of contracts happen for purchase conveyancing in Highbury and do I need to attend the conveyancers office?

Where you are round the corner to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Highbury you are invited in to sign documents. However, the law practices we work with offer a countrywide conveyancing service and provide as equally diligent and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The executing of the contract is not when everything is set in stone. A signed contract simply enables the conveyancer to exchange contracts at the suitable time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where an extended "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Highbury)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

Whereas this was necessary ten years ago, the vast majority lenders no longer need their conveyancing panel solicitor to witness the borrowers signature.
