At long last a mortgage offer from HSBC for the refinancing of my 4 room flat is due within the next few days. Can you recommend a low cost conveyancing lawyer in Fillongley?
You are on the wrong site if you are in need of the lowest fares for conveyancing solicitors in Fillongley. We can offer you excellent value conveyancing but our intention is not to advertise as being the cheapest. Resist the temptation to appoint companies offering £100 conveyancing in Fillongley. At best, in being led by cheap conveyancing, you will end up with what you pay for and at worst it will result in you being stung for extras and still not end up with the service expected.
We are purchasing a house and require a conveyancing solicitor in Fillongley who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a firm?

The Fillongley conveyancing lawyers that I recently instructed on my purchase in Fillongley have suddenly shut down. I chose them because I had to have a firm on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel and my previous Fillongley lawyer was not. I wrote them a cheque for £250 in advance. What are my options?
If you have an estate agent involved then let them know straight away so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to reasons beyond your control. Most sellers would be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new solicitors should be in a position to assist.
Should my solicitor be raising questions regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Fillongley.
Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers carrying out conveyancing in Fillongley. Plenty of people will buy a house in Fillongley, fully expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical destruction, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable building insurance, or sell the premises. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.
Conveyancers are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a number of checks that may be initiated by the purchaser or by their conveyancers which can figure out the risks in Fillongley. The standard information supplied to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a usual inquiry of the owner to discover if the property has historically flooded. In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the vendor, then a buyer could issue a claim for damages stemming from an misleading reply. The purchaser’s solicitors will also conduct an enviro report. This will higlight if there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed inquiries should be initiated.
