My wife and I have recently appointed a conveyancing solicitor in Botley. I I am struggling to find out if they are on the Alliance & Leicester conveyancing panel. Could you or the lender confirm if they are on the panel?
The first thing to do is call the conveyancer and ask them if they can act for the bank. Otherwise please call Alliance & Leicester who may be able to confirm.
I had a mortgage agreed in principle with Coventry BS. Botley conveyancing solicitors are appointed. How long does it take for Coventry BS to forward the offer to the property lawyer?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Coventry BS completed the survey? Have you informed Coventry BS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
We expect to receive a AIP from Coventry BS this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Coventry BS recommend any Botley solicitors on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Botley solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Coventry BS through the process.
I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Botley off the council. I have a mortgage agreed with Skipton. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Skipton, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Skipton conveyancing panel.
I have recentlydiscovered that Stirling Law have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Botley for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 10 months ago. How can I be sure that my home is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?
The quickest method to check if the premises is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Botley conveyancing specialists.
Hoping to buy a property located in Botley and I am already nervous. I couldn't find anything specific about Botley. Conveyancing will be needed in due course but do you know about the Botley area? or perhaps some other tips you can share?
Rather than looking online forget looking online you should go and have a look at Botley. In the meantime here are some basic statistics that we found
As co-executor for the estate of my grandfather I am disposing of a residence in Swansea but I am based in Botley. My lawyer (who is 200 kilometers from mehas requested that I sign a statutory declaration prior to completion. Could you suggest a conveyancing solicitor in Botley who can witness and place their company stamp on the document?
Technically speaking you are unlikely to be required to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily any notary public or solicitor will be fine regardless of whether they are located in Botley
