As someone not used to conveyancing in Bexhill On Sea what’s the number one tip you can give me for the ownership transfer in Bexhill On Sea
Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Bexhill On Sea or throughout East Sussex is an adversarial experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is lots of room for friction between you and others involved in the legal transfer of property. For example, the vendor, selling agent and on occasion your lender. Selecting a lawyer for your conveyancing in Bexhill On Sea is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY person in the legal process whose responsibility is to protect your best interests and to protect you.
Every so often a potential adversary will try and persuade you that you should follow their advice. For instance, the estate agent may claim to be helping by claiming that your solicitor is slow. Or your financial adviser may advise you to do something that is against your lawyers recommendation. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the conveyancing process.
What is your number one tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Bexhill On Sea

A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need.

The mortgage over my property is with Coventry BS for my property in Bexhill On Sea. Conveyancing has been completed 12 months ago. If I am intending to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Coventry BS?
Your original mortgage agreement with Coventry BS will provide that you need their approval in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Coventry BS’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Coventry BS will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Coventry BS directly. You need not do this via a Coventry BS conveyancing panel solicitor.
I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in August 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, TSB are being pedantic. The Bexhill On Sea solicitor who is on the TSB conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but TSB are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do TSB have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that TSB have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why TSB may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
