A loan offer from Santander for the refinancing of my single bedroom flat is to be issued any day now. Can you propose a low cost conveyancing solicitor in Yaxley?
This site is not designed to aid those in pursuit of cut-price fees for conveyancing solicitors in Yaxley. Our aim is to provide value for money conveyancing but our intention is not to advertise as being the cheapest. Resist the temptation to appoint brokers teasing you with £100 conveyancing in Yaxley. Optimistically, in being led by cheap conveyancing, you will earn what you pay for and at worst it will result in you invoiced for extras and still not end up with the service expected.
Can you help? My Yaxley lawyer is assuring me that she is duty bound toconduct Yaxley conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the Santanderapproved lawyer panel. Do I not have a choice here?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. Given that you are taking out a loan with a lender your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your solicitor would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the CML Handbook conditions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Yaxley conveyancing searches.
We are selling our home in Yaxley. Does my conveyancing practitioner have to be required to be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Aldermore conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their requirements fairly frequently at the moment.
I am due to move house in March. Will my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you put forward a removal company in Yaxley. Conveyancing solicitor was organised prior to coming across this website.
On the afternoon of completion you will need to collect the house keys from your estate agent but this can only occur when the sellers solicitors inform the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be released. You will need to advise the removal men that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a specific removal company but can assist you in choosing a residential property solicitor in Yaxley or a lawyer that specialises in conveyancing in Yaxley.
We had appointed solicitors locally in Yaxley on the Co-operative solicitor approved list. They have just invoiced me a separate amount for dealing with the Co-operative mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Co-operative?
Provided it is contained in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your property lawyer is entitled to charge a fee for this. The fee is not dictated by Co-operative but by your Yaxley conveyancer. Some firms on the Co-operative panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee but many firms incorporate it on their overall fee.
I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in November 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Aldermore are being a right pain. The Yaxley solicitor who is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Aldermore are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Aldermore have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Aldermore have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Aldermore may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

To what extent are Yaxley conveyancing solicitors duty bound by the Law Society to publish transparent conveyancing costs?
Contained within the Solicitors Code of Conduct are set rules and regulations as to how the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) allow solicitors to publicise their fees to clients.The Law Society have a practice note giving advice on how to publicise transparent charges to avoid breaching any such rule. Practice notes are not legal advice issued by the Law Society and is not intended as the only standard of good practice a conveyancing solicitor should adhere to. The Practice Note does, however, constitute the Law Society’s view of acceptable practice for publicising conveyancing charges, and accordingly it’s a recommended read for any solicitor or conveyancer in Yaxley or across England and Wales.
