Do not opt for the cheapest Sandy conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need.

If you have finished paying off your Virgin Money 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 Virgin Money mortgage from the register. Virgin Money, 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:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Virgin Money has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Virgin Money has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Virgin Money mortgage has been paid off.

I am buying a new build flat in Sandy. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.

Set out below are examples of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Sandy

    The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified.

I have noted on various consumer advice websites that when selecting a conveyancing firm they must be approved by your lender. It happens to be my first house move but I have an AIP with Birmingham Midhshires and I already have a high street conveyancing solicitor in Sandy at the ready. Does Birmingham Midhshires require an approved lawyer to be instructed? Does a directory of approved solicitors even exist so I can pick a conveyancing lawyer in Sandy?

You need to choose a solicitor that is on the Birmingham Midhshires panel. Simply ring your preferred Sandy conveyancing lawyer to check if they are on the Birmingham Midhshires panel. If they are not on the panel you have a couple of alternatives available to you here:

  • Carry on with your chosen Sandy lawyer but Birmingham Midhshires will undoubtedly instruct a property lawyer on their conveyancing panel. The net result is additional cost together with probable delay.
  • Get a new conveyancing practitioner to conduct the conveyancing, ensuring that they are on the Birmingham Midhshires conveyancing panel.
  • Appeal to your property lawyer to seek to join the bank panel.
