We are purchasing a house and require a conveyancing solicitor in Windsor who is on the Barclays solicitor panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a conveyancing firm?

We are downsizing from our property in Windsor and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. Any high street Windsor lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers used a factory type conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Windsor. We have lived in Windsor for many years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to seek clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You should check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)
How does conveyancing in Windsor differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Windsor approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Windsor usually acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Windsor or who has acted in the same development.
We are one month into a freehold purchase having been recommend to a firm by the local agent to carry out the conveyancing in Windsor. We are not happy. Can you you assist me in finding new solicitors?

If so you will need to inform them of the replacement conveyancer and get the mortgage documents are re-sent. Your solicitor ideally needs to be on the mortgage company panel to avoid added costs and frustration. That should be your first question of the new solicitors. Our find a solicitor tool should help you find a bank approved solicitor for your home move in Windsor
Is there a distinction between surveying and conveyancing in Windsor?
Conveyancing - in Windsor or anywhere in England and Wales - is the legal term given to transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It involves the investigation of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you’re intending to buy and will help you find out about the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you a powerful reason for negotiating the purchase price down or asking the seller to fix the problems before you move in.
