My Conveyancer in Aintree has never been on on the Barclays Direct Conveyancing Panel. Can I still use my prefered solicitor even though they are excluded from the Barclays Direct list of approved lawyers?
The limited options open to you here include:
- Complete the purchase with your existing Aintree lawyers but Barclays Direct will need to use a solicitor on their panel. This will result in additional overall conveyancing charges and cause frustration.
- Choose a new lawyer to to deal with the purchase, remembering to check they are Convince your lawyer to use their best endeavours to join the Barclays Direct conveyancing panel
I have been told that property searches are the primary reason for hinderance in Aintree house deals. Is this right?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published findings of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the common causes of hindrances during the legal transfer of property. Searches are not likely to feature in any delay in conveyancing in Aintree.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my home are lost. The solicitors who handled the conveyancing in Aintree 10 years ago no longer exist. What are my options?
Gone are the days when you need to hold title deeds to evidence that you are the registered proprietor of land or premises, as the Land Registry hold details of all registered land or property electronically.
Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Aintree. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.

Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Please supply a car parking plan. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry.
Should I be concerned that 3rd parties that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use a national conveyancing firm rather than a local Aintree conveyancing practice?
As with many professional services, often suggestions from relatives can be worth their weight in gold. But there are lots of players in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, financial adviser and lenders might all put forward lawyers to select. Sometimes these conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but occasionally there might be a financial incentive behind the endorsement. You have the right to select your own conveyancer. You need to be aware that the majority of banks specify a panel list of solicitors you have to use for the mortgage aspect of your conveyancing.
