My wife and I are looking to purchase a flat in Mexborough and are in fact using a Mexborough conveyancing practice. Within the last couple of days our lawyer has forwarded the sale agreement to be signed with a detailed report with a view to exchanging next week. Halifax have this afternoon contacted us to inform me that there is now an issue as our Mexborough conveyancer is not on their conveyancing panel. Is this a problem?
When purchasing a property with mortgage finance it is normal for the purchasers' lawyers to also represent the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your property lawyer should contact your lender and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You don't have to instruct a firm on the lender’s conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Mexborough solicitors, in which case it will likely add costs, and it may delay matters as you are adding another lawyer into the mix.
When can the exchange of contracts take place for purchase conveyancing in Mexborough and do I need to be at the conveyancers branch?
Where you are in close proximity to our conveyancing solicitors in Mexborough you are invited in to sign documents. However, the law practices we recommend provide countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give as equally comprehensive and professional a job for you when dealing with you digitally. The executing of the contract is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line simply enables the firm to address the formalities at the appropriate time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a lengthy "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Mexborough)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
I just bought a house at auction in Mexborough. Conveyancing is necessary. What is next?
Given that you have now legally committed yourself to purchase you must find a conveyancing lawyer soon as you are facing a pending a fixed date to complete the deal. An auction property should have a corresponding legal set of papers. This will likely include the copy title deeds, local authority and drainage searches. Where you are dealing with leasehold property the conveyancing papers may contain a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing paperwork relating to leasehold premises. You need to give this to the solicitor instructed by you as soon as possible. Do make sure that you have funds organised to complete the transaction on the set completion date.
This question may be naive but I am unseasoned as a 1st time buyer of a garden flat in Mexborough. Do I receive the keys to the premises on completion from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will find a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Mexborough?
On the day of completion you will not be required to go to the conveyancers office in Mexborough. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the completion advance to the seller's conveyancers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be invited to receive the keys from the property Agents and move into your new home. Usually this happens early afternoon.

Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes about a week for the mortgage offer to be issued. Yorkshire BS will issue the offer to you and your conveyancing practitioners.

I purchased a flat in Mexborough last 25/1/2019 and to date it is still not recorded with the Land Registry. It was part of a development site and my lawyer told me that it may take one year to complete the registration formalities. I have contacted HMLR directly and they have informed me the initial application was cancelled due to failure to reply to requisitions. Do I need to be concerned?
