Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Yelverton

My fiance and I are planning to purchase a flat in Yelverton and have instructed a Yelverton conveyancing practice. Within the last couple of days our conveyancer has forwarded the sale agreement to be signed with a detailed report with the expectation that exchange is imminent. Skipton Building Society have this morning contacted us to advise us that there is now an issue as our Yelverton conveyancer is not on their conveyancing panel. Is this a problem?

If you are buying a property with the assistance of a mortgage it is usual for the purchasers' solicitors to also act for the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your solicitor should contact your lender and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You don't have to instruct a firm on the bank's conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Yelverton solicitors, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it may delay matters as you are adding another lawyer into the mix.

At what point can the exchange of contracts take place for residential conveyancing in Yelverton and am I required to be at the conveyancers branch?

Where you are round the corner to our conveyancing solicitors in Yelverton you are invited in to sign the paperwork. However, the lender approved solicitors we recommend provide a countrywide conveyancing service and give just as comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally. The executing of the sale agreement is not when everything is set in stone. A signed contract is necessary for the solicitor to officially exchange when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where a lengthy "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Yelverton)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

Can you clarify what the consequences are if my solicitor is removed from the Coventry BS Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Yelverton?

First, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

Should our lawyer be asking questions about flooding during the conveyancing in Yelverton.

Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers specialising in conveyancing in Yelverton. Plenty of people will buy a property in Yelverton, completely aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or dispose of the premises. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Solicitors are not qualified to impart advice on flood risk, but there are a number of checks that can be carried out by the purchaser or by their lawyers which will figure out the risks in Yelverton. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms supplied to a buyer’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a standard inquiry of the owner to determine whether the property has suffered from flooding. If the premises has been flooded in past which is not disclosed by the seller, then a purchaser could issue a legal claim for losses resulting from an inaccurate reply. The purchaser’s conveyancers should also commission an enviro report. This should indicate whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further investigations will need to be conducted.
