We're in Chipping Sodbury, First time buyers buying with a mortgage (lender is Kent Reliance , and our lawyer is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no lawyer should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.
I have todaydiscovered that Wolstenholmes have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Chipping Sodbury for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 10 months ago. How can I be sure that my home is not still registered in the name of the previous owner?
The easiest method to check if the property is in your name, you can carry out 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 Chipping Sodbury conveyancing specialists.
