As someone unfamiliar with conveyancing in Little Burstead what is the number one tip you can impart for the ownership transfer in Little Burstead
You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Little Burstead or throughout Essex is an adversarial experience. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there is lots of opportunity for conflict between you and others involved in the house moving process. E.g., the seller, selling agent and sometimes the mortgage company. Appointing a solicitor for your conveyancing in Little Burstead is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY person in the legal process whose role it is to look after your legal interests and to protect you.
Every so often a third party with a vested interest will try and sway you that it is in your interests to do things their way. For example, the selling agent may claim to be helping by claiming that your conveyancer is dragging his heels. Or your mortgage broker may try to convince you to do something that is against your solicitors recommendation. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the home moving process.
Please explain the implications if my solicitor is expelled from the Leeds Building Society Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Little Burstead?
The first thing to point out is that, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.
