Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Penzance

We are acquiring a newly constructed apartment in Penzance and my conveyancer is informing me that she is duty bound to the bank to disclose incentives from the builder. I am under pressure to sign contracts and I have no desire to delay matters. is my lawyer playing by the book?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your property lawyer. A precondition to being on a bank panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

Why do I have to pay up front for conveyancing in Penzance?

Where you are retaining lawyers for conveyancing in Penzance your lawyer will ask you put them with funds to cover the search fees. Ordinarily this is needed to cover the fees of the conveyancing searches. When the down payment is as part of the total price then this will be required immediately ahead of contracts are exchanged. The closing balance that is needed should be sent to your lawyer shortly before completion.

Please explain the implications if my solicitor is suspended from the Nationwide Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Penzance?

First, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.
