What is the difference between a licensed conveyancer and conveyancing solicitor in Highnam

There are two types of lawyers who can execute conveyancing in Highnam namely licenced conveyancers or solicitors. The two can handle conveyancing services that you need to complete the disposal or purchase of property. They are both duty bound to handle Highnam conveyancing to the same quality and guidelines so you may be sure that your conveyancing will be professionally carried out and that the requisite steps will be appropriately adhered to.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as a 1st time purchaser of a ground floor flat in Highnam. Do I pick up the keys to the house on completion from my conveyancer? If so, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Highnam?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will arrange to send the purchase money to the seller's lawyers, and once they have received this, you will be called to collect the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen early afternoon.

The formalities of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Highnam. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I would like to complain about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?

All banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Team at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.

How does conveyancing in Highnam differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Highnam approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Highnam tend to buy the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Highnam or who has acted in the same development.

I have been recommended by numerous selling agents in Highnam to locate a property lawyer on your site. Is there a financial incentive for Estate Agents to market your services ahead of a competitor’s?

We refuse to give any financial incentive for sending work to this site. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission because members of the public would think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

My husband and I are first time buyers - agreed a price, yet the selling agent informed us that the owners will only go ahead if we instruct their chosen conveyancers as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a high street conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Highnam

We suspect that the seller is not behind this ultimatum. If they require ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious purchaser is likely to cause more damage than good. Speak to the owners direct and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you intend to appoint your preferred Highnam conveyancing solicitors - as opposed tothe ones that will earn the negotiator at the agency a commission or meet his conveyancing targets pre-set by senior management.
