Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Littleport

Is the fact that my solicitor in Littleport is not listed on my mortgage company's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of her work?

That would more than likely be a wrong assumption to make. There are plenty of plausible explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator indicated that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the solicitor is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should simply call the Littleport conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your mortgage company.

I purchased a terraced Victorian house in Littleport. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Alliance & Leicester . I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the matching address. Is it worth asking Alliance & Leicester to clarify?

You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Littleport and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also question the position with your conveyancing solicitor who completed the work.

How does conveyancing in Littleport differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Littleport approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because developers in Littleport usually purchase the land, 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 conveyancers 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 used to new build conveyancing in Littleport or who has acted in the same development.

Taking into account that I will soon spend over three hundred thousand on a property in Littleport I wish to talk to a solicitor regarding thehome move ahead of instructing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

We could not agree more - we would be pleased to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you first talking to the solicitor due to be doing your conveyancing in Littleport.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is an important individual, not a file reference. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are quoted for your conveyancing in Littleport should be the figure that you are charged.
