What is the difference between a licensed conveyancer and conveyancing solicitor in Nechells

There are many registered licenced Conveyancers in Nechells and Solicitor firms in Nechells to choose from We would stress that both are supervised by regulatory bodies with both specialising in the legal work in the home buying process. They may both also handle other property legal work such as remortgage conveyancing, lease extensions and transfer of equity conveyancing.

We had instructed conveyancers locally in Nechells on the Barclays solicitor panel. They have just billed me an additional charge for handling the Barclays mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Barclays?

Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your solicitor is entitled to charge a fee for this. The fee is not set by Barclays but by your Nechells property lawyer. Numerous firms on the Barclays panel will quote an ‘acting for lender’ fee but many firms include it on their overall fee.

I was told four weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by RBS. Is it usual for RBS to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Nechells is approved on their conveyancing panel? RBS have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for RBS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the RBS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

Just bought a terraced house in Nechells , how long will it take for the Land Registry to record my proprietorship? My Nechells conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure the registration is dealt with.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Nechells registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any 3rd persons or bodies. As of today roughly 80% of such applications are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be longer delays. Registration takes place after the new owner has moved in to the premises so post completion formalities is not usually top priority yet if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer must contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one close by in Nechells I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Nechells suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

If you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
