Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Market Drayton

Is the fact that my solicitor in Market Drayton is not on my mortgage company's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of her conveyancing?

It would not be wise to jump to that conclusion. There are all sorts of perfectly plausible explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator revealed that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) lack of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should contact the Market Drayton conveyancing practice and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.

My wife and I are due to exchange on the purchase of a house in Market Drayton but as a consequence of wreckage from the recent storms I have was able negotiate recompense from the owner in the sum of £3k in the form of a reduction in the price.

Any solicitor being on a Lloyds conveyancing panel is obliged to disclose to Lloyds of any amendments to the purchase price. If you prohibit your conveyancing practitioner to report the price change to Lloyds then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Lloyds and you would have to appoint a new property lawyer for your conveyancing in Market Drayton.

Me and my brother have a terraced Georgian property in Market Drayton. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Halifax. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the matching property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You should assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Market Drayton and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also question the position with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the conveyancing.

Am I better off to go with a Market Drayton conveyancing lawyer who is local to the property I am purchasing? We have a good friend who can handle the legal work but his firm is located 300kilometers drive away.

The primary upside of using a local Market Drayton conveyancing practice is that you can attend the office to sign documents, deliver your ID and pester them where appropriate. They will also have local insight which is a benefit. That being said it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have used your friend and in the main were happy that should trump using an unfamiliar Market Drayton conveyancing lawyer just because they are Market Drayton based.
