Having been referred to your web site we were going to go ahead with a conveyancing solicitor in Halkyn recommended using your search tool but have come across some other estimates on the internet seem cheaper – why is this?
One can find numerous solicitors advertising self styled £99 conveyancing, but supplementalcharges result in the closing bill totally different to the one you expected. Conveyancers are obliged to make sure that charges contained in terms of engagement should be equitable invoiced The law firms that we list for conveyancing in Halkyn set out all legal fees for the property you intend tobuy.
Please explain the implications if my lawyer’s firm is suspended from the Leeds Building Society Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Halkyn?
The first thing to point out is that, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.
My wife and I are purchasing a flat in Halkyn. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a conveyancer? At some point we have to send money into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our deposit?

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
I have read on numerous consumer advice websites that before selecting a conveyancing firm they must be approved by your mortgage company. It happens to be my first house move but I have an offer in principle via Nat West Bank and I already have a high street conveyancing lawyer in Halkyn at the ready. Will Halifax need an approved solicitor to be used? Does a directory of panel solicitors even exist so I can choose a conveyancing lawyer in Halkyn?
You should instruct a solicitor that is on the Halifax panel. Simply call your preferred Halkyn conveyancing solicitor to check if they are on the Halifax panel. If they are not on the panel you have numerous alternatives open to you here:
- Carry on with your chosen Halkyn solicitor but Halifax will need to use a conveyancer from their conveyancing panel. The net result is additional cost together with likely delay.
- Choose a fresh conveyancer to act in the purchase, ensuring that they are on the Halifax conveyancing panel.
- Convince your solicitor to pull out all the stops to get accepted on the Halifax panel of solicitors.
