Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Wadhurst

My best friend’s uncle is a solicitor. I suspect that I'll be able to get preferential fee for conveyancing, but if not, what kind of costs would I typically be looking at for conveyancing in Wadhurst?

It’s a good idea to request multiple conveyancing quotes. Do use our comparison tool on this page. Whilst charges may be different but the service one can expect differ between conveyancers as is true with most professions.

We have rather pushy sellers who has recommended a preliminary contract with a payment two thousand pounds. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?

There are a couple of primary downsides with signing a lock out contract (occasionally referred to as a no-shop agreement) is that it takes away the focus from making progress with the conveyancing work, so in the absence of it needing little or no negotiation then it could turn out to be a hindrance. It is not strongly advocated amongst Wadhurst conveyancing practitioners for this reason. A further issue is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved buyer is very unlikely to be granted an injunction to prevent the owner completing the sale to a third party, so the only remedy available under the contract will be the recovery of abortive charges and, in restricted scenarios, the additional payment of damages.

I am considering applying for a Kent Reliance mortgage for purchase of a new build (under development) in Wadhurst with 65 per cent loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Kent Reliance ?

There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Kent Reliance will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is greater potential for delays and confusion with an additional lawyer added to the mix, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.

Are all Wadhurst Conveyancing Quality Solicitors on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel?

It is true that some lenders now make use of CQS as the starting point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS accreditation however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. Nevertheless,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitors wishing to remain on their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.

is it true that all Wadhurst conveyancing solicitors on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel are overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?

As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Clydesdale approved list of solicitors they would need to be regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. The majority of mortgage companies do list licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the organisation would be overseen by the CLC.

Nottingham have agreed my mortgage in principle, my offer on a house in Wadhurst has been agreed to, now what?

The property agent will want to be informed of your lawyer's details (make sure the solicitors are on the bank’s panel). Telephone Nottingham or the financial adviser and finalise any outstanding documentation. Nottingham will sellect a valuer who will get in touch with the selling agent or vendor to book a slot for the valuation to happen. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes approximately a fortnight for the mortgage offer to be issued. Nottingham will issue the offer to you and your lawyers. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Wadhurst.

Am I right to be concerned about third parties that I am dealing with are suggesting a nationwide conveyancing firm as opposed to a High Street Wadhurst conveyancing firm?

As with lots of professional services, often input from family and friends can be most helpful. But there are many parties with a keen interest in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, mortgage brokers and banks may suggest solicitors to choose. Sometimes the solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but occasionally there may be a financial incentive behind the endorsement. You have the right to appoint your own lawyer. You need to be aware that most mortgage providers have an approved list of lawyers you have to use for the mortgage aspect of your transaction.
