We chose a local firm for my conveyancing in Rushden recently. After carefully reading the terms of engagement I seeI am responsible for costs even if the sale aborts. Would I be best advised to select an internet lawyer advertising no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Rushden?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Sale No Fee" is offered then the conveyancing charges will generally be more expensive to offset those transactions that fail to complete. Please beware that these deals generally do not cover outlay e.g. Rushden conveyancing search charges.
My flat in Rushden is up for sale and I have a buyer. Will my conveyancer need to be on the UBS conveyancing panel in order to deal with the discharge of my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the UBS conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their conditions fairly frequently currently.
Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Lloyds. Rushden conveyancing solicitors were selected. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Lloyds?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Lloyds completed the survey? Have you informed Lloyds as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Lloyds conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Leeds Building Society. I assume I don't need a Rushden property lawyer on the Leeds Building Society panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your Leeds Building Society mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Leeds Building Society mortgage from the register. Leeds Building Society, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Leeds Building Society has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Leeds Building Society has instructed the Land Registry to do so
After months of negotiation I have agreed a price on a house in Rushden. My mortgage broker suggested a conveyancing practitioner. I paid an upfront payment of £175. A couple of days later, the solicitor called me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Clydesdale panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
What does commercial conveyancing in Rushden cover?

I am four weeks into a residential purchase having been referred to conveyancers by the estate agent to perform conveyancing in Rushden. I am not happy. Could you help me find new conveyancers?
They would need to be very poor to suggest replacing them. Has your loan offer been generated? In the event that it has you need to make them aware of the new contact details and ensure the mortgage documents are re-issued. Your new solicitor ideally needs to be on the lenders approved list to avoid escalating fees and complications. That should be your starting point.
