Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Colyton

Is the fact that my conveyancer in Colyton is not listed on my lender's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the quality of her work?

It would not be wise to jump to that conclusion. There are plenty of plausible explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator indicated 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should simply call the Colyton conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.

When will exchange of contracts happen for sale conveyancing in Colyton and do I need to be at the lawyers office?

If you are in close proximity to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Colyton you are welcome to attend to sign documents. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we work with provide a national conveyancing service and provide just as comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The signing of the sale agreement is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line is just a prerequisite for the conveyancer to officially exchange at the suitable time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a lengthy "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Colyton)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

How does conveyancing in Colyton differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Colyton contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because builders in Colyton typically buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Colyton or who has acted in the same development.
