Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Barking

When will exchange of contracts take place for sale conveyancing in Barking and am I required to attend the solicitors office?

Where you are round the corner to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Barking you are welcome to come in to sign documents. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we work with supply countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide as equally comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The signing of the contract is not when everything is set in stone. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the conveyancer to address the formalities at the suitable time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Barking)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

I am aiming to move home in March. Will my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you suggest a removal company in Barking. Conveyancing solicitor was chosen before I stumbled across your page.

On the afternoon of completion you will need to pick up the house keys from the property agent however this can only occur after the sellers conveyancers inform the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be given over. After that you should advise the removal men that they can start moving you in. We are not in a position to suggest a particular removal organisation but can assist you in choosing a conveyancing in Barking or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Barking.

The formalities of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Barking. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I would like to complain about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?

Almost all lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Department at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.

I can not fathom if my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Barking bank branch on a couple of occasions and was told it wasn't a problem and they will lend. My Barking conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they refuse to lend in accordance with their published requirements. I simply don't know who is right.

Your conveyancer must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two specifications for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

It has been 4 months since my purchase conveyancing in Barking concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
