Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Southgate

Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Southgate. What is the rationale as to why all Southgate solicitors are not on all lender panels?

Mortgage companies highlight the fact that solicitor-led fraud is considered to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud annually.The removal of law firms from lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the FSA in 2011. Its outcome included recommendations for lenders to review their conveyancing panels, which kicked off a major policy change in the sector. This led to banks and building societies culling a number of firms off their books of approved property lawyers .

I am looking to buy a property and need a conveyancing solicitor in Southgate who is on the Leeds Building Society solicitor. Can you recommend a local conveyancing firm?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Leeds Building Society in certain locations such as Southgate. We dont recommend any particular firm.

When it comes to lenders such as Skipton, do Southgate conveyancing practitioners face a yearly amount to be on the list of approved solicitors?

We are unaware of any mortgage company fees to register on their list of approved firms, although some do charge an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.

Can I be sure that the Southgate conveyancing solicitor on the Yorkshire BS panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in Southgate obtaining recommendations is a good 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 which is cheap as chips. We would always advise that you speak with the lawyer conducting your conveyancing.

We have a mortgage agreed in principle with UBS. Southgate conveyancing lawyers are selected. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from UBS?

There is no definitive answer here. Have UBS completed the survey? Have you advised UBS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the UBS conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

My wife and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in Southgate and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. Any local lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed a national conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Southgate. We have lived in Southgate for 4 years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to seek confirmation that there is no issue.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer 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 health insurance to cover that same ailment)
