Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bideford

Do the conveyancing lawyers via your comparison service execute attended exchange conveyancing in Bideford?

There are a few conveyancing experts who can conduct personalised exchanges. Please call us to get a fee calculation and details as to availability.

Please explain the implications if my solicitor is suspended from the Leeds Building Society Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Bideford?

First, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.

I used Stirling Law a few years past for my conveyancing in Bideford. I now require my papers but cannot find the solicitor. What do I do?

How does conveyancing in Bideford differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Bideford contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because house builders in Bideford typically acquire the real estate, 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 Bideford or who has acted in the same development.

I have been looking for Bideford conveyancing quotes online. Can I be confident that all the Bideford law firms that are identified on your directory are on the lender conveyancing panel?

The solicitor and licensed conveyancing practices on our directory have assured us via an online form that they are on the mortgage company panel and agreed to advise us to take down their listing in the event of removal off of the lender panel. To date we have not been informed by either a mortgage company or a member of the public that the data about a specific Bideford firm being on the bank conveyancing panel is not accurate.
