Why would I appoint a Holborn conveyancing solicitors firm given that national alternatives are easier on the wallet?
By all means make sure that you shop around for conveyancing costs in Holborn and you should seek an affordable estimate but don’t be focused with scouring the internet for the cheapest Holborn conveyancer.

Our lawyers will update you on headway and keep you informed. Should you need to phone the firm you will be sure who to ask for and we'll ensure you are kept fully informed.
We were just about to sign contracts for a ground floor flat in Holborn. We have hit a snag. The loan offer with Halifax runs out on 29/1/2024 but the vendors are suggesting a completion date of 31/1/2024. Can one prolong the loan offer?
The person best placed to address this issue is your conveyancer who will assess if he or she is better off negotiating with the mortgage broker, owner’s lawyers, property agents or possibly all parties given the history of your transaction as of today.
When it comes to lenders such as Leeds Building Society, do Holborn conveyancers have to pay a fee to be on the conveyancing panel?
We are unaware of any mortgage company fees to register on their panel, although some do levy an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.
We have a mortgage agreed in principle with Leeds Building Society. Holborn conveyancing lawyers have been appointed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Leeds Building Society?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have Leeds Building Society conducted the valuation? Have you advised Leeds Building Society as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in April 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Clydesdale are being pedantic. The Holborn solicitor who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Clydesdale are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Clydesdale have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Clydesdale have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Clydesdale may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up during conveyancing in Holborn?
Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Holborn. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

My husband and I are 14 days into a residential purchase having been referred to a firm by the high street agent to carry out the conveyancing in Holborn. I am am very dissatisfied with the level of service. Could you help me find new lawyers?
They would have to be very bad to suggest diss instructing them. Has the loan offer been issued? If so you must inform them of the new contact details and ensure the loan are issued to the new lawyers.
