Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Holbrook

At what point does exchange of contracts take place for sale conveyancing in Holbrook and do I need to be at the solicitors branch?

If you are in close proximity to our conveyancing solicitors in Holbrook you are invited in to sign the paperwork. However, the firms we recommend offer a countrywide conveyancing service and give as equally diligent and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally. The executing of the contract is not the critical part. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the solicitor to officially exchange when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where a lengthy "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Holbrook)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

I recently had an offer agreed on a house in Holbrook. My financial adviser suggested a conveyancer. I paid an upfront payment of £175. Soon after, the property lawyer contacted me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Coventry BS panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Nottingham. Is it usual for Nottingham to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Holbrook is approved on their conveyancing panel? Nottingham have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.

A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Nottingham to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

Nottingham have agreed my home loan in principle, my offer on a property in Holbrook has been agreed to, what are the next steps?

The estate agent will need to know who your solicitors are (be sure the lawyers are on the bank’s panel). Telephone Nottingham or the financial adviser and complete any appropriate forms. Nottingham will instruct a valuer who will get in touch with the estate agent or seller to schedule a time for the valuation to occur. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes approximately a fortnight to receive the mortgage offer. Nottingham will issue the offer to you and your solicitors. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Holbrook.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Holbrook is the location of the property. Can you offer any opinion?

Flying freeholds in Holbrook are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Holbrook you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Holbrook may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

In my capacity as executor for the will of my grandfather I am selling a property in Swansea but I am based in Holbrook. My solicitor (based 260 miles awayneeds me to execute a stat dec prior to completion. Can you recommend a conveyancing practitioner in Holbrook to witness and place their company stamp on the document?

I bought a property in Holbrook last 25/9/2020 and to date it is still not recorded with HMLR. It is part of a development site and my solicitor told me that it may take one year to register. I have spoken with the Land Registry directly and they have informed me the original application was cancelled due to questions not being addressed in time. Do I need to be concerned?

Contact your conveyancing practitioner - if you are not getting sensible responses, find out about their firm’s complaints process and escalate your problem to a Partner. Registrations for Holbrook conveyancing are not known to be particularly slow.
