Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Stevenage

Having been recommended your web site we were going to use a conveyancing solicitor in Stevenage listed on your site but have come across some other quotes via the web appear less expensive – how come?

One can find hundreds of conveyancing organisations advertising at first sight what seems to be very low prices. Our recommendation is to think twice as to how much you respect your own move to want to be penny wise pound foolish concerning the standard of the conveyancing.

Are the Stevenage conveyancing solicitors identified as being on the UBS conveyancing panel, together with their details provided by UBS?

Stevenage conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the UBS conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from UBS directly.

We previously instructed conveyancing lawyers locally in Stevenage on the Principality solicitor panel. They are now charging me a supplemental charge for the legal aspects of the Principality mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Principality?

Unfortunately, so long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your property lawyer can levy a fee for this. The fee is not set by Principality but by your Stevenage property lawyer. Some firms on the Principality panel will levy an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.

We were going to get a AIP from TSB this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do TSB recommend any Stevenage solicitors on the TSB conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?

You will need to appoint Stevenage solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the TSB conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and TSB through the process.

Planning on purchasing a maisonette in Stevenage. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Skipton conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Stevenage solicitor is on the Skipton conveyancing panel.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our house are lost. The conveyancers who conducted the conveyancing in Stevenage 4 years ago are no longer around. What are my options?

Gone are the days when you need to have the physical official documentation to establish that you are the registered proprietor of land or premises, given that the Land Registry hold details of all registered land or property electronically.

How does conveyancing in Stevenage differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Stevenage approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because house builders in Stevenage typically buy the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Stevenage or who has acted in the same development.
