When can the exchange of contracts happen for residential conveyancing in Horwich and am I required to attend the lawyers branch?

If you are local to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Horwich you are invited in to sign documents. However, the firms we work with provide a national conveyancing service and give just as comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email. The executing of the contract is not the point of no return. Signing on the dotted line is necessary for the solicitor to exchange contracts when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Horwich)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

We had selected conveyancers located in Horwich on the Principality solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a supplemental fee for the legal aspects of the Principality mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Principality?

Unfortunately, so long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your conveyancer is entitled to levy a fee for this. This fee is not dictated by Principality but by your Horwich conveyancing practitioner. Plenty of firms on the Principality panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.

I had a mortgage agreed in principle with TSB. Horwich conveyancing lawyers have been instructed. How long does it take for TSB to send the offer to the solicitor?

Our sealed bid on a detached house in Horwich has been accepted, the sellers do nevertheless have a tied purchase. The vendors have offered on a flat, but it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other flats booked. I have chosen a high street conveyancing solicitor in Horwich. What should be my next step? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with Lloyds?

It is normal to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Horwich conveyancing search costs, etc). The first course of action is to ensure that your conveyancer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. Regarding the subsequent steps this very much depends on the specifics of your transaction, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many buyers will apply for a home loan with Lloyds and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their lawyer to move forward with the conveyancing in Horwich.

How does conveyancing in Horwich differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Horwich approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because new home sellers in Horwich typically purchase the real estate, 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 Horwich or who has acted in the same development.
