Recently asked questions about conveyancing in West Ham

Much to our surprise we have been notified by our IFA that my West Ham solicitor is not on the mortgage company Conveyancing panel. How can I be sure if this is correct?

I am due to move property in February. Will my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. As an aside, can you put forward a removal company in West Ham. Conveyancing solicitor was found before I stumbled across this page.

We previously appointed conveyancing lawyers based in West Ham on the Principality solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a further amount for dealing with the Principality mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Principality?

Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your lawyer is entitled to levy a fee for this. The fee is not dictated by Principality but by your West Ham solicitor. Plenty of firms on the Principality panel will quote an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.

Currently approximately three quarters of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive hold-ups. Registration takes place once the purchaser is living at the premises so an expedited registration is not always primary concern but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
