We selected a Hook based lawyer for my conveyancing in Hook last week. Upon checking the fine print I noteI am on the hook for fees even if the movedoes not go ahead. Should I go with them or choose an internet conveyancing company advertising no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Hook?
Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is offered then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be higher to counteract the conveyances that do not go ahead. Please beware that such arrangements generally do not cover disbursements e.g. Hook conveyancing search charges.
There is lots of information on this site regarding conveyancing in Hook but what is your top tip for appointing the right conveyancer in Hook
It would be unwise to be swayed by the lowest Hook conveyancing fees. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of the deal.
I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Coventry BS. I assume I don't need a Hook lawyer on the Coventry BS panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your Coventry BS mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Coventry BS mortgage from the register. Coventry BS, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Coventry BS has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Coventry BS has instructed the Land Registry to do so
Coventry BS have agreed my mortgage in principle, my offer on a house in Hook has been agreed to, now what?
Your estate agent will need to know who your solicitors are (be sure the conveyancers are on the lender’s approved list). Telephone Coventry BS or your broker and finish off any appropriate paperwork. Coventry BS will sellect a valuer who will get in touch with the estate agent or owners to book an appointment. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes on average ten days for the mortgage offer to be issued. Coventry BS will issue the offer to you and your conveyancing practitioners. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Hook.
