Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Yateley

I am one month into the sale of my home in Yateley and the EA has just called to warn that the purchasers are appointing a new property lawyer. The reason given is that the bank will only work with solicitors on their approved list. Why would a major mortgage company only deal with specific lawyers rather the firm that they want to choose to handle their conveyancing in Yateley ?

UK lenders have always had an approved set of law firms that can act for them, but in recent years big names such as Nationwide, have reviewed and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have acted for them for more than 15 years.

Mortgage companies point to the increase in fraud as the reason for the cull – criteria have been stiffened as a smaller panel is easier to keep an eye on. Banks tend not to disclose how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society says it is hearing daily from firms that have been removed from panels. Some are unaware that they have been dropped until contacted by a borrower who has instructed them as might be the situation in your buyers' case. Your buyers are not going to have any sway in the decision.

I am looking to buy a property and require a conveyancing solicitor in Yateley who is on the Barnsley Building Society solicitor. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a solicitor?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Barnsley Building Society in certain locations such as Yateley. We dont recommend any particular firm.

I used Stirling Law a few years ago for my conveyancing in Yateley. I now require my file but the law firm is no longer operating. What do I do?

How does conveyancing in Yateley differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Yateley approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because developers in Yateley usually buy 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 conveyancers 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 Yateley or who has acted in the same development.

I'm converting the mortgage on my primary house to a BTL mortgage with HSBC Bank and I will use the rest of the raised equity as a deposit on another property. The area we are interested in is Yateley. Will your solicitors be able to act for the two banks and tie in the two deals?

Do use our search tool on this page to ensure that the conveyancers are approved by both banks. On the basis that they are your lawyer will be able to tie up the two conveyancing matters but you should talk with you lawyer and make clear your expectations and needs.

What could I expect to pay for conveyancing in Yateley?

The total sum levied for conveyancing in Yateley can vary dramatically from lawyer to lawyer. In the circumstances it all the more critical for you to have a full summary of fees before you instruct a conveyancer. You should also consider asking three or four like for like quotes.
