My friend's step-father is a property lawyer. I expect that I will receive mate’s pricing for conveyancing, but if not, what kind of fees should I be expecting for conveyancing in Mancot?
It’s a good idea to request two or three conveyancing estimates. Do use our comparison tool on this site. Whilst prices do contrast greatly but service levels do differ between property lawyers as is the case with most professions.
My god-son is buying a new build apartment in Mancot with a home loan from Nottingham. His solicitor has advised him of a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. What is this document - I have never come across this before?
The form is intended to provide information to the main parties involved in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Nottingham conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when requested. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Nottingham conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.
Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unexperienced as FTB of a ground floor flat in Mancot. Do I collect the keys to the property on the completion date from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will instruct a local conveyancing solicitor in Mancot?
On the day of completion you will not be required to attend the conveyancers office in Mancot. Your solicitors will transfer the completion advance to the seller's lawyers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be invited to receive the keys from the selling Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.
When it comes to lenders such as Lloyds, do Mancot solicitors incur a yearly amount to be on the list of approved solicitors?
We are not aware of any mortgage company fees to be on their panel, although some do charge an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.
is it true that all Mancot solicitors on the Aldermore conveyancing panel are regulated by the SRA?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Aldermore approved list of solicitors they would need to be governed by the SRA. Many lenders do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the firms would be governed by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
I have been recommended by a few estate agents in Mancot to choose a solicitor using your seach tool. What’s the financial upside for Estate Agents to market your site over and above another?
We don’t make any commission for directing people our way. We found it would be just too difficult a fee as home movers will think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
My husband and I are one month into a residential purchase having been recommend to conveyancers by the estate agent to execute conveyancing in Mancot. We are not happy. Could you you assist me in finding new lawyers?
They would have to be very poor in order to consider diss instructing them. Has your mortgage offer been sent? If so you need to inform them of the replacement lawyer and have the offer are re-issued. The conveyancer should be on the lenders panel to avoid added charges and complications. That should be your starting point. Our search tool can assist you in finding a lender approved conveyancer for your conveyancing in Mancot
