I am under pressure from the executor of a property in Cranleigh to sign contracts within four weeks. What can I do to expedite matters?
In a situation where you are under pressure to exchange it is advisable to make sure that your conveyancer is familiar with the area as they will make use of local connections and intelligence. It is possible that they could have handled previousproperties in the same road. Therefore consider using a Cranleigh conveyancing lawyer. Second, check that the lawyer is on the member panel. It is claimed that just under twenty per cent of Cranleigh conveyancing deals are suspended or derailed after finding out that a purchaser’s lawyer was not on their mortgage lender’s member panel. This can often result in the conveyancing being frustrated by almost three weeks. It is estimated that this issue affects approximately 100,000 home sales annually. Many Cranleigh conveyancing practices can not act for certain lenders so do check at the outset.
Is it necessary during the course of the conveyancing process to pop into the offices of the solicitor to execute the legal charge? If so, I will appoint a lawyer who conducts conveyancing in Cranleigh so that I can attend their offices if necessary.
Whereas this was necessary 15 years ago, most banks no longer need their conveyancing panel lawyer to witness the mortgagors signature. It will still be necessary for you to supply ID documents and there are still distinct advantages to instructing a locally based practitioner, in your situation a conveyancing solicitor in Cranleigh.
It has been 4 months since my purchase conveyancing in Cranleigh took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
As co-executor for the estate of my grandfather I am disposing of a residence in Swansea but live in Cranleigh. My solicitor (based 250 miles from mehas requested that I execute a stat dec ahead of completion. Could you suggest a conveyancing practitioner in Cranleigh who can witness this legal document for me?
Technically speaking you are unlikely to need to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily or notary public or qualified solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are Cranleigh based
Please can you refer me to a good Cranleigh conveyancing practitioner for buying an apartment? A relative recommended one but their quote was £1150 for a 150k property. That seems high. The lender will be UBS.
