I can't travel far from Looe. I would like to know the reason why all Looe property lawyers are not on all mortgage company panels?
Pre- 2008 most banks demonstrated an approach to risk which differs from the current day. The Financial Services Authority in 2010 carried out a thematic review into mortgage fraud which in summary warned lenders: know the conveyancers on your panel. Accordingly, lenders have subsequently soughtmore data from law firms about their operations and the staff who work for them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum number of transactions. Many law practices have been excluded from lender panels even though they had an exemplary disciplinary record, no complaints and zero claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Many firms were never going to meet the criteria of volume of transactions the lenders required.
When can the exchange of contracts take place for domestic conveyancing in Looe and do I need to be at the lawyers office?
If you are in close proximity to our conveyancing solicitors in Looe you are welcome to attend to sign documents. However, the law practices we work with supply countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give just as detailed and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email. The signing of the contract is not when everything is set in stone. A signed contract is necessary for the conveyancer to exchange contracts at the appropriate time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where an extended "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Looe)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Looe is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can give?
Flying freeholds in Looe are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Looe you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Looe may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
