Do all mortgage companies provide you with an approved list of Cotswolds conveyancing solicitors? How do you know who is on the TSB conveyancing panel?
Cotswolds conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the TSB conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from TSB directly.
The Cotswolds conveyancing lawyers that I recently instructed on my purchase in Cotswolds have suddenly closed. They were on acting for me because I needed a firm on the Skipton conveyancing panel and my previous Cotswolds lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take £195 for searches. What do I do now?
If you have an estate agent involved then let them know straight away so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to the problems encountered. Hopefully they will be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the Skipton conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new lawyers should be in a position to help.
Have purchased a a detached house in Cotswolds , how long will it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my ownership? My Cotswolds conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to check that my ownership is recorded.
As far as conveyancing in Cotswolds is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry communicate with any 3rd persons or bodies. Currently approximately three quarters of such applications are completed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive hold-ups. Historically registration occurs after the purchaser is living at the premises therefore an expedited registration is not usually primary concern but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor must contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
