Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Kelvedon. Can you please spell out why all Kelvedon conveyancers are not on all lender panels?
Mortgage Companies ordinarily impose restrictions on either the nature or volume of conveyancing practices on their approved list of lawyers. A common example of such restriction(s) being that a practice is required to have at least two partners. In addition to restricting the structure of firm, some lenders decided to limit the size of their panel they permit to act for them. You should note that lenders have no liability for the standard of conveyancing supplied by any Kelvedon conveyancing practitioner on their approved list. Increases in mortgage fraud was the primary trigger for the rationalisation of solicitor panels a few years ago even though there are contrary thoughts about whether solicitors sat at the center of that fraud. Statistics via the Land Registry exposes that thousands of law firms only conduct one or two conveyances annually. Those advocating conveyancing panel consolidation ask why law firms should have claim to be on a bank panel when it is evident that property law is not their speciality?

I am the sole beneficiary of my late father’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Kelvedon. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in May. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship may be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in May. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?
The CML handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be caught by that. many lenders would take a practical view as this obligation is chiefly there to identify subsales or the flipping of properties.
How does conveyancing in Kelvedon differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Kelvedon approach us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because house builders in Kelvedon typically purchase the land, 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 Kelvedon or who has acted in the same development.

What is the distinction between surveying and conveyancing in Kelvedon?
Conveyancing - in Kelvedon or anywhere in England and Wales - is the legal term given to transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It involves the investigation of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you’re intending to buy and will help you discover the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you leverage for negotiating the purchase price down or asking the vendor to remedy the defects before you move in.
