Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Scotter

What happens if my lawyer’s firm is expelled from the Nottingham Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Scotter?

First, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.

We are intent on selling our home in Scotter and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Scotter lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers instructed a factory type conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Scotter. Having lived in Scotter for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to get clarification that the buyers are looking for.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You should enquire of 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 life insurance to cover that same illness)

Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Scotter before retaining conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold element to the property. The surveyor advised that some banks may not grant a loan on a flying freehold home.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Santander has different instructions from Halifax. If you e-mail us we can check with the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Scotter. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Scotter especially if they are familiar with such properties in Scotter.

I was recommended by a number of property agents in Scotter to locate a solicitor on your site. What’s the financial upside for Estate Agents to promote your services rather than a competitor’s?

We don’t offer any commission for pointing buyers and sellers to this site. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission because members of the public would think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

My step-father has urged me to instruct his lawyers for conveyancing in Scotter. Should I use them?

No doubt the ideal way to select a conveyancing practitioner is to have feedback from friends or family who have experience in using the solicitor that you are considering.
