Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my solicitor in Pevensey Bay is not listed on my bank's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the standard of the firm’s conveyancing?
It would be unwise to jump to that conclusion. There are all sorts of perfectly plausible explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator revealed 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (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. If you are concerned you should simply call the Pevensey Bay conveyancing firm and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.
What is the difference between a licensed conveyancer and conveyancing solicitor in Pevensey Bay
There are two types of lawyers who can do conveyancing in Pevensey Bay namely licenced conveyancers or solicitors. The two can handle conveyancing services that required to complete the disposal or acquisition of property. They are both duty bound to conduct Pevensey Bay conveyancing to the same standards and guidelines so you may be safe in the knowledge that your conveyancing will be properly administered and that all requisite steps will be accurately followed.
I am planning to move home in November. Does my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you suggest a removal company in Pevensey Bay. Conveyancing solicitor was found before I stumbled across this website.
On the afternoon of completion you can pick up the house keys from your estate agent however this can only occur when the vendors lawyers advise the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be handed over. Subsequently you should inform the removal company that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a particular removal organisation but can assist you in finding a residential property solicitor in Pevensey Bay or a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing in Pevensey Bay.
I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in September 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Barclays are being problematic. The Pevensey Bay solicitor who is on the Barclays conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Barclays are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Barclays have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Barclays have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Barclays may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
We are intent on selling our home in Pevensey Bay and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. Any high street Pevensey Bay lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using a nationwide conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Pevensey Bay. We have lived in Pevensey Bay for many years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm already. What do they say? You should enquire of 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)
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and identified one close by in Pevensey Bay I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Pevensey Bay suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
