The mortgage agreement from NatWest for the refinancing of my 2 bedroom garden flat is coming imminently. Are you able to suggest a cheap conveyancing solicitor in New Romney?

This site is not designed to help those in their quest for cut-price fees for conveyancing solicitors in New Romney. Our goal is to offer cost effective conveyancing but our intention is not to work with the cheapest lawyers. Avoid the trap of appointing companies teasing you with £99 conveyancing in New Romney. In your best case scenario, in going for cheap conveyancing, you will end up with what you pay for and at worst you will end up with a hefty uplift in extras and still not receive the service required.

I am due to complete on the purchase of a property in New Romney but as a consequence of wreckage from a small fire at the property I have managed to agree recompense from the seller in the sum of £3k taking the form of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of a side agreement yet Nottingham are not allowing this. Should they have been informed?

Any solicitor that is on the Nottingham approved list is required to inform Nottingham of any variations to the sale price.

I am selling my home in New Romney. Does my lawyer need to be on the Lloyds conveyancing panel in order to deal with repayment of my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Lloyds 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 specifications fairly frequently currently.

I am due to move home in February. Does my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in New Romney. Conveyancing firm was chosen prior to coming across your page.

On the afternoon of completion you will need to pick up the house keys from the selling agent but this can only take place when the sellers solicitors confirm to the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be given over. Subsequently you should inform the removal men that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a particular removal organisation but can assist you in locating a residential property solicitor in New Romney or a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing in New Romney.

When it comes to lenders such as Nationwide, do New Romney lawyers have to pay a fee to be on the list of approved solicitors?

Is it the case that all New Romney solicitors on the UBS conveyancing panel are overseen by the SRA?

As solicitors, in order to be on the UBS conveyancing panel they would need to be governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. The majority of banks do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such practice would be regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

How does conveyancing in New Romney differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in New Romney contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because new home sellers in New Romney tend to buy 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 New Romney or who has acted in the same development.
