We decided to go with a local solicitor for my conveyancing in Rochford recently. Upon checking the Terms and Conditions I seewe are liable for fees even if the dealfalls through. Should I go with them or use an on-line lawyer offering no completion no cost conveyancing in Rochford?
Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is offered then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be more expensive to counteract those transactions that do not proceed. Do bear in mind that such promotions rarely cover expenditure e.g. Rochford conveyancing search charges.
When will exchange of contracts occur in domestic conveyancing in Rochford and am I required to be at the conveyancers branch?
If you are near to our conveyancing solicitors in Rochford you are invited in to sign contracts. That being said, the law practices we work with supply a national conveyancing service and provide as equally comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The signing of the contract is not the point of no return. A signed contract is necessary for the firm to address the formalities when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a lengthy "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Rochford)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
I had intended to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Rochford for our home move. Our financial adviser informed us that our bank Nationwide Building Society won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unfair competition?
Lenders tend to restrict either the category or the amount of conveyancing firms on their approved list of lawyers. Typical examples of such criteria being that a law practice must not be a sole practitioner. As well as restricting the type of firm, a few lenders have reduced the number of firms they allow to represent them. You should note that Nationwide Building Society have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Nationwide Building Society Conveyancer Panel. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the rationalisation of solicitor panels a few years ago even though there are mixed views about the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Figures from the Land Registry reveal that plenty of law firms, including some in or near Rochford only execute one or two conveyances a year.
It has been 3 months following my purchase conveyancing in Rochford completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
