I am getting a mortgage offer from Santander. I would like to enlist the help of a Licensed Conveyancer in Teignmouth. Does the Santander Conveyancing panel exclude Licensed Conveyancers?
The Santander conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, associated to the CML or BSA, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.
My wife and I are purchasing a flat in Teignmouth. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a solicitor? At some point we have to put our life savings into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our deposit?
Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.
We are due to move home in July. Should my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you recommend a removal company in Teignmouth. Conveyancing firm was found prior to coming across this site.
On the afternoon of completion you can pick up the keys from the selling agent however this should only take place once the previous owners lawyers confirm to the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be collected. Subsequently you will need to advise the removal company that they can start moving you in. We are not in a position to recommend a particular removal company but can help you choose a residential property solicitor in Teignmouth or a firm that specialises in conveyancing in Teignmouth.
About to purchase flat in Teignmouth. 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 Leeds Building Society 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 Teignmouth conveyancer is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel.
Should our conveyancer be asking questions about flooding as part of the conveyancing in Teignmouth.
The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for solicitors conducting conveyancing in Teignmouth. There are those who buy a house in Teignmouth, fully aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical destruction, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or sell the premises. Steps can be carried out during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.
Solicitors are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a number of checks that may be initiated by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which can figure out the risks in Teignmouth. The standard completed inquiry forms given to a buyer’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) contains a usual inquiry of the owner to determine whether the property has suffered from flooding. If the residence has been flooded in past which is not notified by the owner, then a purchaser could issue a legal claim for losses resulting from an inaccurate response. A purchaser’s solicitors may also order an enviro report. This should disclose if there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations will need to be conducted.
How does conveyancing in Teignmouth differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Teignmouth contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because developers in Teignmouth usually purchase the real estate, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 used to new build conveyancing in Teignmouth or who has acted in the same development.
