Can the conveyancing solicitors that you recommend conduct auction conveyancing in Newington?
There are a few niche solicitors we can put you in touch with those specialising in auction conveyancing. Newington is one of hundreds of locations where our lawyers cover.
We are buying a flat and need a conveyancing solicitor in Newington who is on the Barclays conveyancing panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a solicitor?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Barclays . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Newington.
My house in Newington is up for sale and I have a buyer. Does my property lawyer have to be on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel in order to deal with paying off my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their specifications fairly frequently currently.
We are intent on selling our property in Newington and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. A high street Newington conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a nationwide conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Newington. We have lived in Newington for 4 years we know of no issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to get clarification that there is no issue.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. What do they say? You should check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)
Me and my brother have a semi-detached Georgian house in Newington. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Aldermore. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the matching property. Is it worth asking Aldermore to clarify?
You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Newington and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also check the situation with your conveyancing lawyer who completed the work.
