Our Barlborough solicitor has uncovered a difference when comparing the information in the valuation report and what is revealed within the conveyancing documents. My solicitor says that he is duty bound to ensure that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my lawyer’s stance correct?
Your conveyancer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for both parties.
The Barlborough conveyancing solicitors that I recently instructed on my house acquisition in Barlborough have suddenly closed. They were on acting for me because I needed a lawyer on the TSB conveyancing panel and my family Barlborough lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take one hundred and fifty pounds for searches. What do I do now?
If you have an estate agent involved then let them know straight away so that they advise the vendors that there may be a slight delay due to reasons beyond your control. Most sellers would be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the TSB conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new lawyers should be in a position to assist.
Just bought a semi-detached house in Barlborough , how long should it take for the Land Registry to register my ownership? My Barlborough conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to check that my name is registered.
As far as conveyancing in Barlborough registration is no faster or slower than the rest of England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can vary according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry have to notify any interested parties. As of today roughly three quarters of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive delays. Registration takes place once the purchaser is living at the premises so an expedited registration is not typically primary concern yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer should speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
