The West Dean conveyancing firm handling our West Dean conveyancing has identified a discrepancy when comparing the information in the valuation report and what is revealed within the title deeds. My solicitor says that he is duty bound to check that the lender is OK with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my lawyer’s approach legitimate?
Your conveyancer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.
When does exchange of contracts occur in purchase conveyancing in West Dean and do I need to attend the conveyancers branch?
If you are round the corner to our conveyancing solicitors in West Dean you are invited in to sign the paperwork. However, the law practices we recommend offer countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give just as comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally. The executing of the sale agreement is not the point of no return. Signing on the dotted line is necessary for the conveyancer to officially exchange at the suitable time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where a long "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in West Dean)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
We are hoping to buy a newly converted flat in West Dean with a homeloan from Britannia.We like our West Dean conveyancing lawyer but Britannia advised that she’s not listed on their approved list of firms. we are left little option but to use a Britannia panel firm or keep our local solicitor and fork out for a Britannia panel lawyer to represent them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that Britannia use our lawyer?
Unfortunately,no. The home loan issued to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers needs to be on the Britannia conveyancing panel. in the past, most mortgage companies had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could find 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. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Britannia
Just bought a terraced house in West Dean , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my ownership? My West Dean conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure that my purchase is recorded.
As far as conveyancing in West Dean registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any other persons or bodies. As of today roughly 80% of submission are fully dealt with within two weeks but some can be subject to longer delays. Historically registration takes place after the purchaser has moved in to the premises therefore an expedited registration is not typically primary concern but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

My brother has suggested that I use his conveyancing solicitors in West Dean. Should I use them?
Much as we are happy to recommend a West Dean conveyancing lawyer it’s preferable to choose a conveyancing solicitor is to have referrals from friends or family who have previously instructed the solicitor that you are are thinking of instructing.
