Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Liskeard

The Liskeard conveyancing firm handling our Liskeard conveyancing has spotted an inconsistency when comparing the assumptions in the home valuation report and what is in the legal papers for the property. My lawyer has advised that he must check that the lender is happy with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my lawyer’s stance appropriate?

Your conveyancer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.

The Liskeard conveyancing firm that just started acting on my purchase in Liskeard have without warning closed. I only went with them because I needed a solicitor on the TSB conveyancing panel and my family Liskeard lawyer was not. I sent them a cheque for two hundred pounds in advance. What do I do now?

Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then let them know immediately so that they advise the vendors that there may be a slight delay due to reasons beyond your control. Hopefully they will be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You should appoint new lawyers that are on the TSB conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new solicitors should be in a position to help.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as a 1st time purchaser of a ground floor flat in Liskeard. Do I pick up the keys to the property on the completion date from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Liskeard?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will transfer the completion advance to the owner’s lawyers, and once they have received this, you will be invited to receive the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.

Can I be sure that the Liskeard conveyancing solicitor on the Yorkshire BS panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in Liskeard obtaining recommendations is a sensible starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer.

We would always advocate that you speak with the solicitor handling your conveyancing.

Our offer on a detached house in Liskeard has been accepted, the sellers do nevertheless have a tied purchase. The vendors have put an offer on a property, but it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other flats in the pipeline. I have chosen a high street conveyancing solicitor in Liskeard. What should be my next step? At what stage should I apply for the mortgage with Lloyds?

It is normal to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses too early (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Liskeard conveyancing search charges, etc). The first thing to do is check that your property lawyer is on the Lloyds approved list. As to the next phase this very much dictated by the circumstances of your transaction, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a rising market the majority of home buyers would apply for a home loan with Lloyds and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their property lawyer to proceed with the conveyancing in Liskeard.

I bought my flat on 5 January and my personal details is yet to be on the land registry website. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Liskeard expressed confidence that it should be dealt with in a couple of weeks. Are transfers in Liskeard uniquely lengthy to register?

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Liskeard registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any other parties. At present roughly three quarters of submission are completed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to longer hold-ups. Registration takes place after the new owner is living at the premises therefore 'speed' is not usually an essential issue but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

I was pointed in your direction by a couple of local selling agents in Liskeard to find a conveyancer using your seach tool. What’s the financial inducement for Estate Agents to offer your site over another?

We don’t offer any referral fee for directing people in our direction. We thought it would be too underhand a fee because home movers will think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
