Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Darley Abbey

My husband and I are planning to buy a property in Darley Abbey and are in fact using a Darley Abbey conveyancing practice. Within the past 48 hours our lawyer has forwarded the sale agreement to be signed with a detailed report with a view to exchanging next week. Skipton Building Society have this morning contacted us to advise us that there is now an issue as our Darley Abbey solicitor is not on their conveyancing panel. Please explain?

When purchasing a property with the benefit of a mortgage it is standard for the purchasers' solicitors to also act for the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your property lawyer should contact your mortgage company and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You don't have to instruct a firm on the bank's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Darley Abbey lawyers, in which case it will likely add costs, and it may delay matters as you have another set of people involved.

Me and my partner are buying a property in Darley Abbey. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a solicitor? On completion day we have to deposit funds into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our money?

Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.

There is lots of here regarding conveyancing in Darley Abbey but can you isolate your top tip for choosing the right conveyancer in Darley Abbey

We would encourage you not to base your choice on the lowest Darley Abbey conveyancing fees. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of the deal.

Does a directory service exist listing Barclays panel conveyancers in Darley Abbey on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?

No. There is no such facility on the CML or Building Society Association websites. Very few lending institutions make their panel listings visible on the web. Where you are seeking to appoint a Darley Abbey property lawyer on the Barclays please make the most of our tool.

We are selling our home in Darley Abbey and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. A local lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a web based conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Darley Abbey. We have lived in Darley Abbey for 5 years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to get confirmation that the buyers are looking for.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)

How does conveyancing in Darley Abbey differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Darley Abbey come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because builders in Darley Abbey tend to 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 conveyancers 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 Darley Abbey or who has acted in the same development.

How do I use the search facility to find a conveyancing solicitor in Darley Abbey on the approved list for my mortgage?

First choose a lender such as Accord Mortgages Ltd, The Royal Bank of Scotland or Britannia then type in your location such as Darley Abbey. Conveyancing firms in Darley Abbey and across England and Wales will then be identified.
