We had selected conveyancing lawyers based in Sandbanks on the Nottingham solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a further fee for dealing with the Nottingham mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Nottingham?

Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your conveyancer is entitled to levy a fee for this.

The owners have put an offer on somewhere, but it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other flats booked. I have selected a high street conveyancing solicitor in Sandbanks. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with Nationwide going?

It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (mortgage application is approx £1k, then valuation, Sandbanks conveyancing search fees, etc). The first thing to do is ensure that your property lawyer is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. As to the subsequent phase this very much depends on the specifics of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. During a rising market the majority of buyers would apply for a home loan with Nationwide and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their lawyer to proceed with the conveyancing in Sandbanks.

How does conveyancing in Sandbanks differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Sandbanks approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because new home sellers in Sandbanks tend to acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Sandbanks or who has acted in the same development.

This is something that we encourage - we would be delighted to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you first talking to the conveyancer due to be carrying out your conveyancing in Sandbanks.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is an important individual, not a matter number. The practices that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are quoted for residential conveyancing in Sandbanks should be the figure that you are charged.

Me and my wife accepted an offer on a Sandbanks apartment left to us 5 years ago in 2010. I have over 12 years conveyancing knowledge and, now retired, intend to undertake my own conveyancing. The purchaser's property lawyer has informed me that their Lenders will not allow you to do your own conveyancing requiring the funds to be released via a solicitor's bank account.

Lending instructions to conveyancing practitioners from all CML members specify that If the vendor is not legally represented the borrower's lawyers should check whether the mortgage company needs to be informed so that a decision can be made as to whether they are willing to proceed.
