Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Slough

My grandson is in the process of securing a new build apartment in Slough with a mortgage from Aldermore. His conveyancer has said that there is a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. Who needs to receive the form?

The form is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the transaction. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when asked. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Aldermore conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

We're in Slough, FTBs purchasing with a mortgage (lender is Co-operative , and our solicitor is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?

The fact that your lawyer is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no property lawyer should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.

What can a local search inform me about the property we're purchasing in Slough?

Slough conveyancing often commences with the ordering local authority searches directly from your local Authority or through a personal search company for instance Onsearch The local search is essential in every Slough conveyancing purchase; that is if you wish to avoid any unpleasant once you have moved into your property. The search will provide data on, amongst other things, details on planning applications applicable to the premises (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of thirteen topic sections.

Do I need to be suspicious that third parties that I am dealing with are recommending a web based conveyancing firm rather than a local Slough conveyancing firm?

As with many professional services, often suggestions from relatives can be most helpful. Nevertheless there are many players in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, financial adviser and banks may put forward lawyers to use. On occasion the solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but occasionally there may be a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You have the discretion to select your own lawyer. You need to be aware that the majority of mortgage providers have an approved list of conveyancers you have to use for the mortgage related work in your transaction.

I am thinking of appointing a conveyancing practitioner in Slough for my sale. Is it possible to review a firm’s complaints history with the legal regulator?

My partner and I are acquiring a ground floor flat in Slough. When we first instructed lawyer, they said that they were on all major UK mortgage company panels. The financial adviser contacted us today to advise that they don't seem to be on the Coventry BS approved list. Were it to be true, what should we do? Should we just pick a new lawyer that is on their panel or do we pay for separate representation, with Coventry BS appointing their own approved conveyancer.

Where you are acquiring a property with the assistance of a mortgage it is normal for the purchaser’s solicitors to also act for the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a solicitor has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the conveyancer to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict conditions which the lawyer has to fulfill. Some banks now insist their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your solicitor should contact Coventry BS to find out if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You don't have to instruct a firm on Coventry BS's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Slough lawyers, in which case it will likely add costs, and it will likely delay the transaction as you have another set of people involved.
