My financial adviser has asked me for my Hampshire law firm’s panel reference for the Lloyds conveyancing panel. Can you suggest how I obtain this. I have contacted my local Hampshire office but they don't know it.
The sensible thing to do is ask for this information from your Hampshire lawyer . Most Hampshire law practices will retain a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each bank.
My wife and I are purchasing a apartment in Hampshire. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a conveyancer? On completion day we have to send funds into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our money?
Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.
We are aiming to move property in December. Should my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you suggest a removal company in Hampshire. Conveyancing firm was found before I stumbled across this website.
On the afternoon of completion you will need to pick up the keys from your estate agent however this can only happen once the vendors solicitors advise the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be collected. Subsequently you will need to inform the removal company that they can start moving you in. We do not recommend a particular removal company but can assist you in locating a residential property solicitor in Hampshire or a lawyer that specialises in conveyancing in Hampshire.
At last I have had an offer on a flat in Hampshire agreed to, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on a property, but it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other properties in the pipeline. I have selected a high street conveyancing solicitor in Hampshire. What do I do now? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with TSB?
It is usual to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then valuation, Hampshire conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you should check that your property lawyer is on the TSB conveyancing panel. As to the next steps this very much depends on the circumstances of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many buyers will apply for a home loan with TSB and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their conveyancing practitioner to move forward with the conveyancing in Hampshire.
I acquired my apartment on 4 June and my personal details is not yet on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Hampshire said it should be registered in less than a month. Are properties in Hampshire particularly slow to register?
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Hampshire registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any 3rd parties. Currently roughly 80% of submission are fully addressed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Historically registration is effected once the purchaser is living at the property thus an expedited registration is not usually primary concern yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
I am buying a new build flat in Hampshire. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.
Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Hampshire
The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry.
Given that I will soon part with hundreds of thousands of pounds on a property in Hampshire I wish to have a conversation with the conveyancer about myhome move prior to appointing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?
We could not agree more - we would be delighted to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the lawyer who will be conducting your conveyancing in Hampshire.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is unique individual, not a matter reference. The practices that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are quoted for residential conveyancing in Hampshire should be the figure that you end up paying.
