Are you able to suggest a Bank of Ireland allowed Handsworth conveyancing conveyancer who can have us moved in within a very limited time frame? Am I best advised to choose a high street Handsworth practice or a national firm?
We can recommend some very good Handsworth conveyancing firms. Another option is to visit the main road in Handsworth. Go in to two or three firms and request to speak with a conveyancing solicitor for a quote. Discuss your requirements together with the reasons and ask for an assurance on your deadline. Appoint the one that you are most comfortable with.
I am considering applying for a Co-operative mortgage for purchase of a new build (under development) in Handsworth with 65 per cent loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Co-operative ?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Co-operative conveyancing panel, but Co-operative 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.
How does conveyancing in Handsworth differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Handsworth approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Handsworth typically buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Handsworth or who has acted in the same development.

A conveyancer would need to be really poor to suggest changing them. Has your mortgage been sent? In the event that it has you must inform them of the new contact details and ensure the offer are re-issued.
