Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Sandbanks

I am 4 weeks into the sale of my maisonette in Sandbanks and the EA has just telephoned to advise that the purchasers are changing their solicitor. The excuse is that the lender will only engage with solicitors on their approved list. On what basis would a leading mortgage company only work with certain solicitors rather the firm that they want to choose to handle their conveyancing in Sandbanks ?

UK lenders have always had panels of law firms that can represent them, but in recent years big names such as Nationwide, have reviewed and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have worked with them for many years.

Lenders justify this action to a rise in fraud as the reason for the cull – criteria have been narrowed as a smaller panel is easier to monitor. Banks tend not to reveal how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society says it is being contacted daily by practices that have been removed from panels. Plenty of firms are unaware that they have been dropped until contacted by a borrower who has instructed them as might be the situation in your buyers' case. Your purchasers are unlikely to have any impact on this.

Can the conveyancing solicitors via your comparison service perform conveyancing in Sandbanks by way of an attended exchange?

There are a few conveyancing specialists carrying out 24hr exchanges. Do contact us to receive a costs illustration and details as to availability.

We are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Sandbanks and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any local conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using an internet conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Sandbanks. We have lived in Sandbanks for six years we know of no issue. Should we contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation that the buyers are looking for.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You should check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)

Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Sandbanks ahead of retaining solicitors. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. My surveyor has said that some mortgage companies may not issue a mortgage on such a property.

Should you wish to call us we can look into this further via the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Sandbanks.
