Our Dolwyddelan lawyer has discovered an inconsistency between the assumptions in the valuation survey and what is revealed within the conveyancing documents. My lawyer has advised that he must ensure that the lender is happy with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my solicitor’s stance legitimate?
Your lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.
When can the exchange of contracts happen for purchase conveyancing in Dolwyddelan and do I need to attend the solicitors office?
Where you are round the corner to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Dolwyddelan you are welcome to attend to sign the paperwork. However, the firms we recommend offer a national conveyancing service and provide just as detailed and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The signing of the contract is not when everything is set in stone. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the conveyancer to officially exchange at the suitable time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a lengthy "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Dolwyddelan)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
I have been recommended a conveyancing solicitor in Dolwyddelan. I I would like to check if they are accepted on the Coventry Building Society conveyancing panel. Could you help?
The first thing you should do is call your solicitor and enquire if they are on the lender panel. Otherwise you can call Coventry Building Society who may be able to confirm.
My husband and I are first time buyers - agreed a price, but the agent has warned us that the vendor will only go ahead if we use the agent's preferred lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Dolwyddelan
We suspect that the seller is unaware of this demand. Should the seller desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated buyer is not the way to achieve this. Contact the vendors directly and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you are going to appoint your preferred Dolwyddelan conveyancing lawyers - rather thanthose that will give the negotiator at the agency a kickback or meet his conveyancing figures pre-set by corporate headquarters.
My wife and I have appointed a Dolwyddelan conveyancing solicitor for our house purchase (novice purchasers) and have picked up in the engagement letter that they are not regulated by the FCA. Should I be concerned or is that the norm with lawyer?
We can't see why they should be. Most conveyancing practitioner don't lend money. They will be governed by the SRA, who have stringent obligations in place on funds held on client account.
