I am in a contract race with another prospective purchaser for a property in Alfreton. What can I do to quicken up the buying process?
In the event that the seller is applying time constraints for your conveyancing we would recommend that your conveyancer is familiar with the location as they will have local relationships and intelligence. It is even conceivable that they may have handled otherproperties in the same road. You would be best advised to use a Alfreton conveyancing solicitor. In addition, be sure that the lawyer is on the on the approved list for your mortgage company. It is estimated that nearly one in five of Alfreton conveyancing deals are delayed or derailed after finding out that a buyer’s lawyer was not on their banks list of approved solicitors. In many cases this discovery resulted in the buying process being delayed by as much as three weeks. It is understood that this issue affects in the region of one hundred thousand home sales annually. Almost all Alfreton conveyancing practices can not represent certain mortgage companies so do check at the outset.
Having sold my house in Alfreton last June yet the purchaser is texting every few hours complaining that their lawyer is waiting to hear from myconveyancer. What are the post completion sale formalities following completion?
After completion of your disposal your lawyer is committed to send the transfer documentation and all supplemental paperwork to the buyer’s solicitors. Where appropriate, your lawyer must also send confirmation that the home loan has been discharged to the buyers conveyancers. There is unlikely to be post completion procedures unique to conveyancing in Alfreton.
We were going to get a DIP from Bank of Ireland this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Bank of Ireland recommend any Alfreton solicitors on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Alfreton solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Bank of Ireland through the process.
Completion of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Alfreton. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I would like to complain about the lender. How do I make a complaint?
All lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office. We understand that complaints to a lender are resolved effectively and efficiently. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR with full details of your complaint.
My offer was accepted on a house in Alfreton on 23/1/2023, valuation was booked 4 days later, received a clean bill of health. Solicitor appointed, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Santander and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Santander conveyancing panel. Are Santander entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Santander to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Santander conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
