Is the fact that my conveyancer in Barbican is not listed on my mortgage company's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of her conveyancing?
That would more than likely be a wrong assumption to make. There are plenty of plausible explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator revealed that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should contact the Barbican conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.

Have just purchased a probate house at auction in Barbican. Conveyancing is required. What are my next steps?
Having for all intents and purposes signed on the dotted line you now have to hire the services of a conveyancing solicitor quickly as you are facing a pending a fixed date to complete the purchase. An auction property should have a bespoke legal pack. This will likely include evidence of title and search results. In the case of leasehold property the auction pack may include a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing paperwork relating to leasehold premises. You must give this to your appointed conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible. You also need to ensure that your finances are in place to complete on the date specified in the contract.
We are getting the release of further monies on our mortgage from UBS as we intend to carry out alterations to our house in Barbican. Do we need to select a high street Barbican solicitor on the UBS conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?
UBS do not ordinarily appoint a member of their approved list of lawyers to deal with the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the UBS conveyancing panel.
How does conveyancing in Barbican differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Barbican contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because house builders in Barbican 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Barbican or who has acted in the same development.
