As someone unfamiliar with the Tiverton conveyancing process what is your top tip you can impart for the house moving process in Tiverton

Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Tiverton and elsewhere in England and Wales is an adversarial experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is lots of room for friction between you and others involved in the legal transfer of property. E.g., the seller, property agent and sometimes your bank. Appointing a lawyer for your conveyancing in Tiverton is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY party in the legal process whose responsibility is to protect your legal interests and to keep you safe.

We are witnessing a worrying emergence of a "blame" culture- someone must be blamed for the process being so protracted. We recommend that you your first instinct should be to trust your solicitor above the other parties in the home moving process.

My husband and I are purchasing a newbuild apartment in Tiverton with a mortgage from Yorkshire Building Society.We would like to retain our Tiverton conveyancing solicitor but Yorkshire Building Society says her practice is not on their "panel". We have to appoint a Yorkshire Building Society panel solicitor or keep our high street solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that Yorkshire Building Society use our lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The loan issued to you contains various provisions, one of which will be that lawyers will be on the Yorkshire Building Society solicitor panel. in the past, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Yorkshire Building Society
