My best friend’s mother is a conveyancer. I hope that I can be offered friends and family rates for conveyancing, but if not, what level of fees should I be paying for conveyancing in Eye?
Do compare pricing. Make use of our comparison tool on this site. You will notice that estimates may contrast greatly but the service one can expect are distinct between law firms as is true with the vast majority of professional services.
I happen to be the sole beneficiary of my late father’s will and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Eye. The Eye property was put into my name in January. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship could be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the property in January. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The CML handbook mandates conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you could be caught by that. Some banks would take a practical view as this obligation is primarily there to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of properties.
When it comes to mortgage companies such as Kent Reliance, do Eye conveyancers incur a yearly amount to be on the conveyancing panel?
We are not aware of any lender fees to register on their list of approved firms, although some do levy an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.
I was told four weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by RBS. Is it usual for RBS to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Eye is approved on their conveyancing panel? RBS have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.
A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for RBS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the RBS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
I used Action Conveyancing several years past for my conveyancing in Eye. Now, I need my documents however cannot find the solicitor. What do I do?

We have AIP from Santander who said that they will lend up to £350k. When do we need to appoint a lawyer for conveyancing? Eye is where we plan to move to.
It would be wise to appoint a solicitor now and ask them to create a file for you. This will enable: 1) the estate agent to send out the Sales Memo to all parties 2) the seller’s property lawyer to send out the draft paperwork. That being said, do not ask your lawyer to start searches until you receive your valuation report from Santander and you are content to move forward.
