At what point can the exchange of contracts occur in residential conveyancing in Buckfastleigh and do I need to attend the lawyers office?

If you are in close proximity to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Buckfastleigh you are welcome to come in to sign documents. However, the firms we work with supply a national conveyancing service and provide just as comprehensive and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email. The signing of the sale agreement is not the point of no return. Signing on the dotted line is just a prerequisite for the solicitor to officially exchange at the suitable time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where a long "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Buckfastleigh)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

I just acquired a house at auction in Buckfastleigh. Conveyancing is required. What is next?

Having for all intents and purposes signed on the dotted line you now have to hire the services of a conveyancing solicitor as a matter of urgency as you are faced with a tight a drop dead date to complete the purchase. An auction property should have an associated auction set of papers. This will include the copy title deeds, local authority and drainage searches. If you have purchased leasehold property the auction pack may provide a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing documentation specific to a leasehold property. You must give this to your appointed conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible. Do make sure that you have funds in place to complete the transaction on the set completion date.

We previously selected solicitors based in Buckfastleigh on the Coventry BS solicitor panel. They have just invoiced me a supplemental fee for dealing with the Coventry BS mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Coventry BS?

As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your property lawyer may levy a fee for this. This charge is not set by Coventry BS but by your Buckfastleigh property lawyer. Plenty of firms on the Coventry BS panel will levy an ‘acting for lender’ fee but many practices include it on their overall fee.

Have completed on a a detached house in Buckfastleigh , how long will it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my title? My Buckfastleigh conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to check the registration is concluded.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Buckfastleigh registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any third parties. Currently in the region of three quarters of submission are fully dealt with within 12 days but some can be subject to extensive hold-ups. Registration occurs after the new owner has moved in to the premises so an expedited registration is not always primary concern but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
