We are planning to acquire a house and require a conveyancing solicitor in Frome who is on the RBS solicitor panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a firm?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for RBS . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Frome.
Do I have to pop into the offices of the solicitor to sign the legal charge? If so, I will choose one who does conveyancing in Frome so that I can pop in to their offices if required.
These days approved lawyers for lenders carry out the vast majority of work via Royal Mail, internet or over phone calls. This enables them to carry out the conveyancing transaction no matter where you live in the country. That being said you should see if you have the option of attending the offices of your conveyancing lawyer if you prefer.
I have been told that property searches are the main reason for obstruction in Frome conveyancing transactions. Is this right?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published conclusions of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the most frequent causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Local searches are unlikely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Frome.
I am buying a new build house in Frome with the aid of help to buy. The sellers refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent told me not to tell my lawyer about the deal as it could affect my mortgage with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
I'm converting the mortgage on my primary home to a BTL loan with Bank of Scotland and I will use the ballance of the raised equity as a deposit on another house. The area we are looking at is Frome. Will your lawyers be able to act for both sets of lenders and link together the conveyances?
Make use of our search tool on this site to ensure that the solicitors are approved by both banks. Having checked that they are your conveyancer will be able to simultaneously deal with the two transactions but you should talk with you solicitor and make clear your expectations and requirements.
