I am in a contract race with another buyer for a property in Hertfordshire. What can I do to speed up matters?
Where the seller is applying time constraints to complete we would recommend that your lawyer is familiar with the area as they will benefit local relationships and insight. It is even conceivable that they would have conducted otherhouses in the same neighbourhood. Therefore consider using a Hertfordshire conveyancing firm. Second, check that the lawyer is on the member panel. It is claimed that nearly one in five of Hertfordshire conveyancing transactions are held up or derailed after discovering a purchaser’s lawyer was not on their mortgage lender’s panel. This can often result in the conveyancing being delayed by an average of three weeks. It is said that this issue affects in the region of one hundred thousand home moves annually. Most Hertfordshire conveyancing firms can not represent certain mortgage companies so do check at the outset.

Mortgage Companies in the main imposes restrictions either the type or the number of conveyancing practices on their approved list of lawyers. A common example of such criteria being that a firm must have two or more partners. In addition to restricting the profile of firm, a few lenders have limited the amount of solicitor practices they use to represent them. You should note that Nottingham Building Society have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Nottingham Building Society Conveyancer Panel. Mortgage fraud was a primary driver in the rationalisation of conveyancing panels since 2008 even though there are differing views about the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Statistics from the Land Registry indicate that hundreds of law firms, including some in or near Hertfordshire only conduct one or two conveyances per annum.
