Can the conveyancing solicitors that are recommend conduct auction conveyancing in Trelogan?
There are a number of auction practitioners we can put you in touch with those specialising in auction conveyancing. Trelogan is just one of hundreds of locations where our lawyers have offices.
I have been told that property searches are a common cause of obstruction in Trelogan conveyancing transactions. Is that correct?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released determinations of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the top 10 causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Searches are unlikely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Trelogan.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our house can not be found. The conveyancers who dealt with the conveyancing in Trelogan 4 years ago have long since closed. What do I do?
These day there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your conveyancer will be aware exactly where to look for all the suitable documentation so you can purchase or sell your property without any difficulty. If copies can’t be located, your conveyancer can arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities against possible claims on your property.
Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Trelogan before appointing lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the property. Our surveyor advised that some banks will refuse to give a mortgage on a flying freehold home.
It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different instructions from Halifax. Should you wish to telephone us we can look into this further with the relevant bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Trelogan. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
Should I be suspicious about estate agents that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use an internet conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Trelogan conveyancing firm?
As with lots of professional services, often referrals from connections can be extremely useful or valuable. Yet there are many people with a keen interest in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage companies may suggest lawyers to select. Sometimes the lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but occasionally there is an underlying financial incentive behind the recommendation. You are at liberty to select your preferred lawyer. However, bear in mind that most mortgage providers specify a panel list of solicitors you are obliged to use for the lender related work in your transaction.
Our property lawyer in Trelogan has informed me that he requires personal identification documents asserting that this is part of his retainer as a solicitor on the lender Solicitor panel. Can you confirm whether this is the case?
Due to Money Laundering Regulations your conveyancing lawyer is duty bound to confirm positively your identification when entering into a business relationship with you. It is a criminal offence if your lawyer not do this. If you do not provide ID early in the transaction the solicitor must refuse to act for you. It’s unlikely a lawyer will turn you away if you come to the first meeting without relevant ID but you will have to produce it at some point so you might as well bring it with you to the initial meeting so the lawyer can tick the ID verification box and start sorting out the conveyancing straight away. If you are getting a mortgage, your lawyer also has to check ID documents to satisfy the mortgage company. This is not unique to conveyancing in Trelogan
