Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Oxford

My mortgage broker has requested my Oxford law firm’s panel member for the Lloyds conveyancing panel. How do I obtain this. I have e-mailed my local Oxford branch but they have not responded to me.

Have you tried speaking to your Oxford property lawyer about this?. Most Oxford conveyancing practices will retain a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each bank.

We have rather assertive vendors who has recommended a lock out agreement with a deposit of 5k. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?

Exclusivity agreements are contracts between a home seller and purchaser giving the buyer the sole right to purchase the premises for a set period of time. For all intents and purposes, a lock out is a document specifying that you should have a contract at a later date being the contract for the actual sale. It tends to be utilised for buyer assurance though in some cases, the seller may enjoy an upside from such agreements as well. There are numerous positives and negatives to having an agreement but you need to check with your solicitor but note that it may result in incurring more in conveyancing charges. In light of this these agreements are rare when it comes to conveyancing in Oxford.

Do the Building Society Association intend to launch a search tool with a view to list solicitors on the Darlington Building Society conveyancing panel for instance in Oxford?

Lexsure has not been advised of any plans on the part of the BSA to develop such a register.

I have been told that property searches are the primary cause of delay in Oxford house deals. Is there any truth in this?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the findings of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the most frequent causes of hindrances in the conveyancing process. Local searches are not likely to be the root cause of holding up conveyancing in Oxford.

The deeds to our home are lost. The solicitors who handled the conveyancing in Oxford 4 years ago are no longer around. Will I be able to sell the house?

Assuming you have a registered title the details of your proprietorship will be evidenced by HMLR with a Title Number. It is possible to conduct a search at the Land Registry, identify your house and order current copies of the property title for a small fee. Where the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will in most cases retain a certified copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be obtained for £20 inclusive of VAT.

How do I search for a Oxford law firm on the Accord Mortgages Ltd conveyancing panel? I have wheels and am willing to travel upto 25kilometers to meet the lawyer.
