We are purchasing a house and need a conveyancing solicitor in Crawley who is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a conveyancing firm?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Virgin Money . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Crawley.
Is it correct that all Crawley CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Barclays conveyancing list of approved firms?
It is true that some banks and building societies now use CQS as the starting point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. CQS membership however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for firms wishing to join their panels.
I am expecting a OIP from Skipton this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Skipton recommend any Crawley solicitors on the Skipton conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Crawley solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Skipton conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Skipton through the process.
Planning on purchasing a flat in Crawley. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Crawley conveyancer is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel.
It has been 4 months since my purchase conveyancing in Crawley completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £215,000. 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 residence 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.
Is there anything unique about your site and other internet conveyancing brokers when it comes to conveyancing in Crawley?
At this site get a conveyancing quote from a Solicitor or Licensed Conveyancer that appreciates the issues for your conveyancing in Crawley. As opposed to estate agents and many comparison sites we do not have referral deals with solicitors. A large number of agents and online brokers 'recommend' the firm who pay the highest commission, as opposed to the best value conveyancing in Crawley
Do all mortgage companies provide you with an approved list of Crawley solicitors? How do you know who is on the bank conveyancing panel?
Crawley law firm practices and firms carrying out conveyancing in Crawley themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the mortgage company conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from the lender directly.
