We instructed a local solicitor for our conveyancing in Snaresbrook today. Looking through the Terms and Conditions I notewe are liable for costs even if the movedoes not happen. Should I ditch them and instruct an internet conveyancing company offering no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Snaresbrook?
Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is advertised then the fee levels will generally be more expensive to offset those transactions that fail to complete. Do bear in mind that these schemes tend not to protect you from expenses such your Snaresbrook conveyancing search expenses.
Can you help? My Snaresbrook solicitor is assuring me that she is duty bound toorder Snaresbrook conveyancing searches due to the fact thatthe firm are on the Virgin Moneyconveyancing panel. Do I not have a choice here?
You have limited options available to you. As you are taking a home loan with a bank your lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook conditions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Snaresbrook conveyancing searches.
My brother-in-law has suggested I instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Snaresbrook. I need to find out whether they are accepted on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. Can you help?
You should e-mail your conveyancer and enquire if they are on the lender panel. Alternatively you should get in touch with Virgin Money who may be able to confirm.

We are unaware of any bank fees to register on their panel, although some do levy an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.
My wife and I have arranged the release of further funds on our mortgage from RBS as we wish to conduct improvements to our property in Snaresbrook. Do we need to choose a local Snaresbrook solicitor on the RBS conveyancing panel to handle the legals?
RBS don't usually instruct a member of their conveyancing panel to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the RBS panel.
I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Snaresbrook. I have a mortgage agreed with Santander. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Santander, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Santander conveyancing panel.
I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in Snaresbrook. Before diving in I would like to find out the number of years remaining on the lease.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and most are in Snaresbrook - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
Following years of correspondence we are unable to agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Snaresbrook. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?
Where there is a absentee landlord or where there is dispute about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the LVT to assess the price payable.
An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement decision for a Snaresbrook residence is 36 New Wanstead in August 2010. The Tribunal arrived at a valuation of the premium for the freehold of £22,359. This case was in relation to 2 flats. The unexpired term was 73.92 years.
We have been informed by various friends to expect six to eight weeks for Snaresbrook conveyancing to complete.This was a month ago. The property information was only sent to my property lawyer a few days ago so now does it countdown?
You should take with some degree of scepticism any promises as to fast completion times. Rather you should enquire about the average timeframe to complete Snaresbrook conveyancing transactions and if they are content to aim towards an agreed target date for your conveyancing in Snaresbrook
