I am in need of a conveyancer. Should I go for for an internet conveyancer or a high street Cambridgeshire conveyancing solicitor?
Cambridgeshire is a special area, where regional knowledge helps. The laid-back lifestyle is great – just not when it comes to your conveyancing. The property lawyers that we list display well rounded Cambridgeshire intelligence with a proactive, hands-onattitude that ensures everything runs smoothly. It is a distinct advantage where they benefit from good relationships with financial advisers, local authorities, valuers and counterpart Cambridgeshire conveyancing firms
I had intended to instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Cambridgeshire for our home move. Our broker has since advised us that our mortgage lenders Birmingham Midshires won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unduly restrictive?
Banks on the whole imposes restrictions either the category or the amount of conveyancing firms on their approved list of lawyers. Typical examples of such restriction(s) being that a law practice must not be a sole practitioner. In addition to restricting the profile of firm, some have decided to limit the number of solicitor practices they allow to represent them. Be aware that Birmingham Midshires have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Birmingham Midshires Conveyancer Panel. Mortgage fraud was a primary driver in the rationalisation of conveyancing panels since 2008 even though there are mixed opinions about the level of solicitor engagement in some of that fraud. Statistics from the Land Registry indicate that plenty of law firms, including some in or near Cambridgeshire only conduct very few conveyances a year.
I bought my flat on 2 November and my personal details are still not registered. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Cambridgeshire said it would be concluded in a couple of weeks. Are titles in Cambridgeshire particularly slow to register?
As far as conveyancing in Cambridgeshire registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any 3rd persons or bodies. At present in the region of 80% of such applications are fully dealt with within two weeks but occasionally there can be longer delays. Registration is effected after the purchaser has moved in to the property thus an expedited registration is not typically top priority but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
Given that I am about to spend 450k on a terraced house in Cambridgeshire I wish to have a conversation with the lawyer regarding thehouse move before giving the go ahead to the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?
We could not agree more - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you speaking to the conveyancer due to be doing your property ownership legalities in Cambridgeshire.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is an important person, not a matter reference. The practices that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are provided with for your conveyancing in Cambridgeshire should be the amount on the final invoice that you end up paying.
As co-executor for the will of my grandfather I am disposing of a house in Cardiff but live in Cambridgeshire. My solicitor (based 250 miles awayneeds me to execute a stat dec before the transaction finalising. Could you suggest a conveyancing practitioner in Cambridgeshire to attest and place their company stamp on the document?
strictly speaking you should not be required to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally any notary public or qualified solicitor will do regardless of whether they are Cambridgeshire based
