Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Truro

Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with TSB. Truro conveyancing solicitors are instructed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from TSB?

There is no definitive answer here. Have TSB done the survey? Have you advised TSB as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the TSB conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

I'm in the process of viewing flats in Truro and I am now considering a potential offer. Should I already have a conveyancing practitioner in place at this stage? I intend to finance via a mortgage with Yorkshire BS.

It would be wise to commence your search sooner rather than later. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their details on to the EA. Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Yorkshire BS, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel.

I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in March 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Coventry BS are being difficult. The Truro solicitor who is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Coventry BS are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Coventry BS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Coventry BS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Coventry BS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

My husband and I are novice buyers - agreed a price, yet the selling agent has warned us that the seller will only go ahead if we appoint their preferred conveyancers as they want a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a high street solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Truro

It is highly unlikely the owners are driving this. Should the seller require ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated purchaser is likely to cause more damage than good. Contact the vendors directly and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you are going to instruct your own,trusted Truro conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will earn their estate agent a kickback or achieve conveyancing figures demanded by senior management.
