There is lots of here concerning conveyancing in Norbiton but can you isolate your top tip for choosing the right conveyancer in Norbiton
Do not opt for the cheapest Norbiton conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.
I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in June 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, RBS are being problematic. The Norbiton solicitor who is on the RBS conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but RBS are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do RBS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that RBS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why RBS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
Our sealed bid on a property in Norbiton has been agreed to, the sellers do however have a tied purchase. The sellers have placed an offer on a property, however it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other flats booked. I have chosen a local conveyancing solicitor in Norbiton. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with Clydesdale started?
It is understandable to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Norbiton conveyancing search fees, etc). The first thing to do is ensure that your property lawyer is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. As to the subsequent phase this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your case, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. During a hot market some home buyers will apply for a home loan with Clydesdale and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their conveyancing practitioner to proceed with searches.
