Is the fact that my solicitor in Olney is not listed on my lender's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of the firm’s work?
It would not be wise to jump to that conclusion. There are all sorts of perfectly plausible explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator indicated that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should simply call the Olney conveyancing firm and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.
I am due to move property in September. Does my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. As an aside, can you recommend a removal company in Olney. Conveyancing lawyer was organised prior to coming across your website.
On the day of completion you will need to collect the house keys from the selling agent but this can only take place when the sellers conveyancers advise the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be collected. After that you can inform the removal men that they can start moving you in. We do not recommend a particular removal company but can assist you in locating a conveyancing in Olney or a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing in Olney.
Can I be sure that the Olney conveyancing solicitor on the Kent Reliance panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Olney getting recommendations is a sensible starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always advocate that you speak with the solicitor handling your transaction.
I have paid off my mortgage with Santander. I assume I don't need a Olney solicitor on the Santander panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your Santander mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Santander mortgage from the register. Santander, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Santander has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Santander has instructed the Land Registry to do so
Just acquired a detached house in Olney , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register my ownership? My Olney conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to be certain that my name is registered.
As far as conveyancing in Olney registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can vary according to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any third parties. As of today roughly 80% of such applications are fully addressed within two weeks but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Registration occurs after the purchaser has moved in to the property thus registration formalities is not typically an essential issue yet if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
