I am expecting a offer of a home loan from Nat West. My intention is to retain the legal services of a Licensed Conveyancer in Keynsham. Does the Nat West Conveyancing panel include Licensed Conveyancers?
The Nat West approved solicitor list is, like many other lenders, associated to the Council or Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.
In the event thatI were to purchase a freehold propertyin Keynsham for cash and dispense with a survey and no conveyancing searches how much could I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Keynsham?
Any savings you would achieve would be limited to the costs for searches. The property lawyer is obliged to do the vast majority of work - money laundering, liaising with your vendors lawyer, stamp duty return, register the ownership etc. You might save a bit for them not needing to register a charge however it won't be a lot.
At what point does exchange of contracts happen for residential conveyancing in Keynsham and do I need to attend the lawyers office?
Where you are near to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Keynsham you are invited in to sign contracts. However, the lender approved solicitors we recommend supply a nationwide conveyancing service and give as equally comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The signing of the contract is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line is just a prerequisite for the solicitor to officially exchange when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a lengthy "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Keynsham)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
I am buying a property and the lawyer has raised the issue of Chancel Repair to which the property may be obligated to contribute to because it falls into the area of such a church. He has recommended insurance. Is this strictly required for conveyancing in Keynsham
Unless a prior purchase of the house took place post 12 October 2013 you can expect solicitors delivering conveyancing in Keynsham to remain recommending a chancel search and or chancel repair liability policy.
