Finally, a loan offer from Santander for the remortgage of my 2 bedroom apartment is coming any day now. Are you able to suggest a low cost conveyancing solicitor in Brewood?
You have arrived at the wrong place to search for the lowest fares for conveyancing in Brewood. We can offer you excellent value conveyancing but our intention is not to advertise as being the cheapest. Avoid the trap of appointing organisations enticing you with low cost conveyancing in Brewood. In your best case scenario, in going for low cost conveyancing, you will get your money’s worth and at worst it will result in you paying a lot in extras and still not receive the service expected.
My wife and I have organised the release of further monies on our home loan from Lloyds as we want to carry out a loft conversion to our home in Brewood. Are we obliged to appoint a local Brewood solicitor on the Lloyds conveyancing panel to handle the legals?
Lloyds would not normally require firms on their conveyancing panel to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Lloyds list.
Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Kent Reliance. Brewood conveyancing solicitors are selected. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Kent Reliance?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Kent Reliance done the survey? Have you advised Kent Reliance as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
I am expecting a AIP from HSBC this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do HSBC recommend any Brewood solicitors on the HSBC conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Brewood solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the HSBC conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and HSBC through the process.
A colleague advised me that if I am buying in Brewood I should ask my conveyancer to carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?

It is not a small document of more than thirty pages, listing and setting out important information about Brewood around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Brewood Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime details, Local Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information about Brewood.

I purchased a flat in Brewood last 11/10/2017 and to date it is still not registered with HMLR. It was part of a new estate and my conveyancer told me that it can take one year to complete the registration formalities. I have contacted HM Land Registry directly and they have informed me the initial application was cancelled due to failure to reply to requisitions. Do I need to be concerned?
It is your lawyer that you should get in touch with in order to satisfy any concerns which have arisen as part of the registration process for your Brewood property. Normal Brewood conveyancing practice includes an undertaking on the part of the seller's conveyancing practitioner that they will assist in resolving any requirements raised by HMLR so it may be a case of taking action to enforce that undertaking if necessary.
