Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Oadby

At what point can the exchange of contracts happen for domestic conveyancing in Oadby and do I need to attend the conveyancers office?

If you are local to our conveyancing solicitors in Oadby you are welcome to come in to sign the paperwork. However, the firms we work with offer a national conveyancing service and provide just as detailed and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally. The signing of the purchase agreement is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line simply enables the conveyancer to exchange contracts at the appropriate time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a lengthy "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Oadby)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

I am thinking of remortgaging my house in Oadby, does my lawyer need to be on the Kent Reliance Solicitor panel?

There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Kent Reliance will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is greater potential for delays and confusion with an additional lawyer added to the mix, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.

I am due to move home in March. Will my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you recommend a removal company in Oadby. Conveyancing lawyer was found prior to coming across your website.

On the afternoon of completion you will need to pick up the keys from the property agent but this should only take place when the previous owners lawyers advise the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be passed over. After that you will need to advise the removal men that they can start moving you in. We do not suggest a specific removal company but can help you find a residential property solicitor in Oadby or a lawyer with expertise in conveyancing in Oadby.

Does a directory service exist listing Coventry BS panel solicitors in Oadby on the Council of Mortgage Lender’s Website?

No. There is no such directory service on the CML or Building Society Association sites. Very few lending institutions make their panel listings available online. If you are in need of a Oadby conveyancer on the Coventry BS please use our tool.

is it true that all Oadby solicitor firms on the Skipton conveyancing panel are governed by the SRA?

As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Skipton approved list of solicitors they would need to be regulated by the SRA. Some mortgage companies do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such firms would be governed by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

What will a local search inform me concerning the property my wife and I buying in Oadby?

Oadby conveyancing often starts with the ordering local authority searches directly from your local Authority or via a personal search organisations for example Searchflow The local search is essential in every Oadby conveyancing purchase; that is if you don’t want any unpleasant once you have moved into your new home. The search will provide data on, amongst other things, details on planning applications relevant to the property (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of thirteen subject sections.

I am purchasing a new build house in Oadby with a mortgage from Santander. The builders refused to reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The estate agent advised me not to tell my solicitor about the side-deal as it would adversely affect my loan with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.

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.

I opted to have a survey carried out on a house in Oadby before appointing lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the property. Our surveyor advised that some banks may refuse to grant a mortgage on this type of house.

It varies from the lender to lender. Bank of Scotland has different instructions from Birmingham Midshires. Should you wish to call us we can check via the relevant bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Oadby. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Oadby to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.
