We note that you have a search directory listing solicitors on the RBS conveyancing panel. Do companies pay you a referral fee if I retain them for our conveyancing in Grange Over Sands?
We are a listing service only for law firms wishing to communicate if they are on the RBS conveyancing panel or other lender panels. We do not charge referral fees to any conveyancer that you subsequently appoint for your conveyancing in Grange Over Sands.
I am considering applying for a Barclays mortgage for purchase of a new build (under development) in Grange Over Sands with 60% LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Barclays ?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Barclays conveyancing panel, but Barclays would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.
I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in Grange Over Sands and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Grange Over Sands conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using an online conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Grange Over Sands. Having lived in Grange Over Sands for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to get confirmation that there is no issue.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same ailment)
The deeds to our home are lost. The conveyancers who dealt with the conveyancing in Grange Over Sands 5 years ago are no longer around. What are my next steps?
In today’s world there are copies made of almost everything, and your conveyancer will know exactly where to locate all the appropriate documentation so you may purchase or sell your house without a hitch. Where copies can’t be located, your conveyancer can put in place insurance or indemnities protecting you against possible claims on your premises.
