I am not in a position to travel far from Lozells. What is the rationale as to why all Lozells conveyancing practitioners are not on all mortgage company panels?
Even though it may seem unfair for lenders to limit who can represent them, from the public’s or solicitor’s perspective, the the contrary view is that banks are becoming ever more anxious and feel it crucial to defend themselves from illegal activities. As a result of this concern lenders have reduced their conveyancing panel to a size that they are happy to control.

Have just purchased a repossessed house at auction in Lozells. Conveyancing is required. What are my next steps?
Having for in every practical sense signed on the dotted line you now have to instruct a conveyancing lawyer soon as you will have a tight deadline in which to complete the conveyancing. All auction property will ordinarily have a corresponding auction pack. This will include evidence of title and search results. If you have purchased leasehold premises the legal pack may include a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing documentation relating to a leasehold property. You must give this to the solicitor working for you at the earliest opportunity. You also need to ensure that your finances are organised to complete the transaction on the set completion date.
This question may be naive but I am unexperienced as a first time buyer of a two bedroom flat in Lozells. Do I pick up the keys to the property on the completion date from my solicitor? If so, I will use a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Lozells?
On the day of completion you do not need to go to the conveyancers office in Lozells. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the completion advance to the vendor’s lawyers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be invited to collect the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this occurs between 1 and 3pm.
Completion of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Lozells. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?
All lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Team at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are resolved very quickly. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.
It has been 3 months since my purchase conveyancing in Lozells took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I need to retain a conveyancing solicitor for residential conveyancing in Lozells. I've land on a site which seems to have the perfect offering If there is a chance to get all this stuff done via phone that would be preferable. Do I need to be concerned? What should out be looking out for?
As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
