I am in a contract race with another prospective purchaser for a property in Tetbury. What can I do to speed up matters?
In a situation where the seller is applying time constraints to complete it is highly recommended that your lawyer is familiar with the area as they will benefit local relationships and knowledge. It is possible that they may have conducted previousproperties in the same street. Therefore consider using a Tetbury conveyancing solicitor. Second, make sure that the lawyer is on the on the approved list for your mortgage company. It is understood that 18% of Tetbury conveyancing transactions are held up or jeopardised after discovering a purchaser’s lawyer was not on their mortgage lender’s list of approved solicitors. This can often result in the home move being delayed by as much as three weeks. It is believed that this issue affects in the region of one hundred thousand home sales annually. Many Tetbury conveyancing practices can not act for certain banks so do check at the outset.
I am in the process of remortgaging my apartment in Tetbury, does my lawyer have to be on the Kent Reliance Conveyancing panel?

My partner and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our property in Tetbury and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. Any local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed an online conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Tetbury. We have lived in Tetbury for 4 years we know of no issue. Do we contact our local Authority to seek confirmation that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. Are they able to advise? You need to 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 life insurance to cover that same ailment)

I'm purchasing a flat in Tetbury. I have found my conveyancer's company on the Law Society's list, but I can't find my conveyancer's name on the list. Should I be concerned?
Not every individual in the practice must be listed by the regulator. Provided there is someone qualified to 'oversee' the conveyancing, the actual day-to-day activity can be undertaken by unlicensed staff.
