Reasons to use our Marlow conveyancing solicitors

  • 1 The organisations listed on our directory have a mix of conveyancing solicitors, legal executives and support staff handling thousands of conveyancing matters annually.
  • 2 The mark of a good conveyancing solicitor in Marlow is quality not quantity. The level of service offered by conveyancing "factories" (sometimes 'recommended' by national chain estate agents) sometimes falls short of the level of professionalism you would hope for.
  • 3 Marlow conveyancers are likely to have connections at the local Land Registry Office, Local Authority and property agents
  • 4 Personal touch together with a wealth of expertise are key benefits that you should look for when selecting conveyancing solicitors. Marlow property deals can be made significantly more stressful as a result of poor communication between all the parties. The lawyers listed ensure that the lines of communication are open and act on arising issues and developments quickly.
  • 5 We are the UKs most comprehensive domestic conveyancing directory service identifying lender approved law practices delivering conveyancing in Marlow registered with the SRA or CLC.

Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Marlow

I am selling my house in Marlow. Will the lawyer need to be on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their conditions fairly frequently at the moment.

Is it the case that all Marlow solicitor practices on the Santander conveyancing panel are regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?

As solicitors, in order to be on the Santander approved list of solicitors they would need to be overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. The majority of banks do list licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such firms would be regulated by the CLC.

I have paid off my mortgage with Skipton. I assume I don't need a Marlow conveyancing practitioner on the Skipton panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your Skipton mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Skipton mortgage from the register. Skipton, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Skipton has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Skipton has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Skipton mortgage has been paid off.

At last I have had an offer on a flat in Marlow agreed to, but there is a chain. The vendors have put an offer on on an apartment, however it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other properties in the pipeline. I have instructed a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Marlow. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with Yorkshire BS started?

It is usual to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, Marlow conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you must check that your lawyer is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. As to the next steps this very much depends on the specifics of your transaction, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. In a rising market some home buyers will apply for a home loan with Yorkshire BS and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their conveyancing practitioner to press on with searches.

I'm purchasing a new build house in Marlow benefiting from help to buy. The sellers would not reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent told me not disclose to my solicitor about the side-deal as it will jeopardize my mortgage with the lender. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

My father has suggested that I use his conveyancing solicitors in Marlow. Should I find my own conveyancer?

Much as we are happy to recommend a Marlow conveyancing lawyer it’s preferable to select a conveyancing solicitor is to have referrals from friends or family who have actually used the firm that you are considering.

    It would be wise to discover as much as possible about the managing agents as they will either make life much simpler or uncomfortable. Being a leasehold owner you will be at the mercy of the managing agents from a financial perspective and when it comes to day to day issues such as the tidiness of the communal areas.
