Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Easton

When will exchange of contracts occur in residential conveyancing in Easton and do I need to attend the solicitors branch?

Where you are round the corner to our conveyancing solicitors in Easton you are invited in to sign contracts. However, the firms we recommend provide a national conveyancing service and give just as detailed and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The executing of the property agreement is not when everything is set in stone. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the conveyancer to address the formalities when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a lengthy "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Easton)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

My conveyancer has informed me that breach of easement insurance is required on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Easton conveyancing?

The right level of breach of easement indemnity insurance should be dictated by who your lender. It would differ for example between Birmingham Midshires and Coventry Building Society. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to borrowers take out such policies.

We have a mortgage agreed in principle with Virgin Money. Easton conveyancing practitioners were selected. How long does it take for Virgin Money to send the offer to the conveyancer?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Virgin Money done the survey? Have you informed Virgin Money as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.

I can not work out if my bank requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Easton bank branch on a couple of occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My Easton conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- called to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their published requirements. I have no idea who is right.

The conveyancer has to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two requirements for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

My relative suggested that where I am purchasing in Easton I should ask my conveyancer to execute a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?

A search of this type is usually included in the estimate for your Easton conveyancing searches. It is a large report of more than thirty pages, listing and detailing important information about Easton around the property and the people living there. It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime statistics, Easton Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data regarding Easton.

Should I be suspicious that brokers that I am dealing with are recommending a nationwide conveyancing firm rather than a local Easton conveyancing firm?

As is the case with lots of professional services, often referrals from connections can be extremely useful or valuable. Yet there are numerous parties with a keen interest in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, financial adviser and lenders may suggest lawyers to select. Sometimes these conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but sometimes there might be a financial incentive behind the recommendation. You have the discretion to select your own lawyer. However, bear in mind that some lenders have an approved list of law firms you must use for the lender related work in your conveyancing.

I note that you have a post code search directory listing law firms on the bank conveyancing panel. Do Easton conveyancing firms pay you a commission if I instruct them for my conveyancing?

We are a listing service only for law firms wishing to communicate if they are on the bank conveyancing panel or other lender panels. We do not charge referral fees to the any conveyancer that you subsequently appoint for your conveyancing in Easton.
