I am expecting a offer of a home loan from Halifax. I intend to employ the services of a Licensed Conveyancer in Prescot. Does the Halifax Conveyancing panel include Licensed Conveyancers?
The Halifax approved solicitor list is, like many other lenders, represented by the CML or Building Society Association, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.
I had intended to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Prescot for our house purchase. Our broker informed us that our mortgage lenders Birmingham Midshires won't deal with them. Surely this is unfair competition?
A bank may direct that an approved conveyancer act for it. You would be expected to meet the charges for this. Please make use of our database to find a solicitor to conduct conveyancing in Prescot on the Birmingham Midshires approved list of solicitors.
I have todaybecome aware that Stirling Law have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Prescot for a purchase of a freehold house 9 months ago. How can I check that the property is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?
The quickest method to see if the property is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Prescot conveyancing specialists.
Taking into account that I will soon part with 450k on a two bedroom apartment in Prescot I wish to talk to a solicitor about mytransaction prior to appointing the firm. Can this be arranged?
We could not agree more - we would be happy to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you first talking to the conveyancer who will be doing your property ownership legalities in Prescot.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is unique individual, not a file reference. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are quoted for your conveyancing in Prescot should be the amount on the final invoice that you are charged.

My dad purchased his flat in Prescot Six years ago. He has since got married, widowed and is now married again. He will be marketing the apartment next January. I believe he will simply be requested to supply copies of his marriage certificates to the solicitor but he is anxious it will hold up the conveyancing. Should he instruct a property lawyer to update the Land Registry information for the house?
The is no need to bring up to date the title for the property providing you have the proof needed to show how the change of name has come about.
The purchaser’s conveyancer should check the registered entries and request evidence to establish the name change for example marriage documentation.
