My Conveyancer in Tiverton has never been on on the Barnsley Building Society Conveyancing Panel. Is it possible for me to use my prefered solicitor notwithstanding that they are excluded from the Barnsley Building Society panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?
The limited options available to you here include:
- Carry on with your preferred Tiverton lawyers but Barnsley Building Society will need to instruct a solicitor on their list of acceptable firms. This will inevitably rack up the overall conveyancing charges as well as cause delays.
- Choose a new practitioner to to deal with the conveyancing, not forgetting to check they are on the Barnsley Building Society panel
My partner and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Tiverton and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. A high street Tiverton conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used an online conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Tiverton. We have lived in Tiverton for 5 years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to get clarification that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You need to check with 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 sickness)
It has been four months since my purchase conveyancing in Tiverton took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
How does conveyancing in Tiverton differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Tiverton contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Tiverton typically purchase 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 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Tiverton or who has acted in the same development.
What makes your site different to alternative online quote calculators when it comes to conveyancing in Tiverton?
At this site obtain an accurate costs illustration via a Solicitor or Licensed Conveyancer that has a full understanding of the issues for your conveyancing in Tiverton. As opposed to estate agents and brokerage sites we do not have commission arrangements with solicitors. A large number of agents and online brokers 'recommend' the firm that pays the highest kickback, not the best value conveyancing in Tiverton
We have been advised by numerous friends to expect up to two months for Tiverton conveyancing to complete.This was four weeks ago. The paperwork was only sent to my property lawyer last week so now does it countdown?
One should treat with suspicion of any property lawyer promising fast completion times. Instead ask the average time it takes for them to complete Tiverton conveyancing deals and whether they are willing to work towards an agreed target date for your house move in Tiverton
