I am under pressure from the owner of a property in Sipson to exchange within four weeks. What can I do to hasten the conveyancing process?
First, If the seller is applying a tight deadline for your conveyancing we would recommend that your conveyancer is familiar with the area as they will make use of local contacts and knowledge. It is possible that they could have transacted otherhouses in the same neighbourhood. You would be best advised to use a Sipson conveyancing solicitor. Second, check that the lawyer is on the on the approved list for your mortgage company. It is said that 18% of Sipson conveyancing transactions are suspended or derailed after finding out that a buyer’s conveyancer was not on their mortgage lender’s panel. In many cases this discovery resulted in the conveyancing being held up by an average of 21 days. It is claimed that this issue affects approximately 100,000 home moves annually. Almost all Sipson conveyancing practices can not represent certain lenders so do check at the outset.

Can I be sure that the Sipson conveyancing solicitor on the UBS panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Sipson seeking recommendations is a sensible starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always recommend that you speak with the solicitor handling your conveyancing.
I have paid off my mortgage with Santander. I assume I don't need a Sipson solicitor on the Santander panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your Santander 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 Santander mortgage from the register. Santander, 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 Santander has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Santander has instructed the Land Registry to do so
At last I have had an offer on a flat in Sipson accepted, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on a property, however it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other flats in the pipeline. I have selected a high street conveyancing solicitor in Sipson. What do I do now? When do I get the mortgage application with Leeds Building Society started?
It is normal to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses prematurely (home loan application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Sipson conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you should check that your solicitor is on the Leeds Building Society approved list. Concerning the subsequent steps this very much dictated by the circumstances of your case, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. In a rising market the majority of home buyers will apply for the mortgage with Leeds Building Society and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their solicitor to proceed with the conveyancing in Sipson.
I have recentlyfound out that Action Conveyancing have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Sipson for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 18 months ago. How can I check that my home is in my name in the name of the previous owner?
The quickest way to check if the property is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Sipson conveyancing specialists.
I'm converting the mortgage on my current home to a BTL loan with Chelsea Building Society and intend to use the remaining equity as a deposit on a second house.

Are Sipson conveyancing solicitors under an obligation to the Law Society to supply transparent conveyancing figures?
Inbuilt into the Solicitors Code of Conduct are specific rules and regulations as to how the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) allow solicitors to publicise their fees to clients.The Law Society have a practice note giving advice on how to publicise transparent charges to avoid breaching any such rule. Practice notes are not legal advice issued by the Law Society and is not to be regarded as the only standard of good practice a conveyancing solicitor should adhere to. The Practice Note does, nevertheless, represent the Law Society’s view of acceptable practice for publicising conveyancing charges, and accordingly it’s a recommended read for any solicitor or conveyancer in Sipson or or elsewhere in the country.
