Hoping to buy a property located in South Brent and I am already nervous. I couldn't find anything specific about South Brent. Conveyancing will be needed in due course but do you know about the South Brent area? or perhaps some other tips you can share?

Rather than looking online forget looking online you should go and have a look at South Brent. In the meantime here are some basic statistics that we found

My husband and I are FTB’s - agreed a price, yet the agent told us that the seller will only move forward if we instruct their preferred conveyancers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a family conveyancer used to conveyancing in South Brent

It is improbable the vendors are driving this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious purchaser is not the way to achieve this. Speak to the vendors direct and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you intend to appoint your own,trusted South Brent conveyancing solicitors - as opposed tothose that will earn the estate agent a kickback or achieve conveyancing figures set by corporate headquarters.

My brother mentioned that before selecting a conveyancing lawyer they must be approved by your lender. It happens to be my first house move but I have an offer in principle with Nat West Bank and I already have a high street conveyancing solicitor in South Brent in place. Does Virgin Money need an approved solicitor to be used? Does a list of panel solicitors even exist so I can choose a conveyancing solicitor in South Brent?

You need to use a solicitor that is on the Virgin Money panel. Just call your preferred South Brent conveyancing solicitor to check if they are on the Virgin Money panel. If they are not on the panel you have a couple of choices available to you here:

  • Proceed with your existing South Brent conveyancer but Virgin Money will need to retain a conveyancer on their approved panel. This will result in additional cost and potential delay.
  • Choose a fresh conveyancer to act in the purchase, obviously checking they are on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel.
  • Convince your lawyer to pull out all the stops to get listed on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel.
