I am purchasing a semi-detached house in Pitsea. How practical is it for me to do the conveyancing?
Leaving aside the complexities and merits of DIY conveyancing in Pitsea you will have to appoint a solicitor on your bank's conveyancing panel to look after their interests. Most people therefore find it easier to let the solicitor act for them and the lender. Furthermore there is minimal cost savings to be made in you doing conveyancing for yourself and another lawyer conducting the conveyancing for the lender. Please feel free to use the search tool to find a lawyer on your lender panel in Pitsea.
Me and my partner are buying a apartment in Pitsea. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a solicitor? On the day of competition we will need to deposit our life savings into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our deposit?
Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.
My partner and I have arranged the release of further funds on our mortgage from Yorkshire BS as we want to conduct a loft conversion to our home in Pitsea. Do we need to choose a nearby Pitsea solicitor on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel to deal with the paperwork?
Yorkshire BS don't usually appoint firms on their approved list of lawyers to handle such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel.
Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Virgin Money. Pitsea conveyancing lawyers have been appointed. How long does it take for Virgin Money to send the offer to the property lawyer?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Virgin Money completed the survey? Have you advised Virgin Money as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
How does conveyancing in Pitsea differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Pitsea approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because builders in Pitsea typically acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Pitsea or who has acted in the same development.
Taking into account that I will soon spend 450k on a house in Pitsea I would like to talk to a lawyer concerning thehome move prior to instructing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?
Absolutely - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the solicitor who will be conducting your conveyancing in Pitsea.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is unique person, not a case reference. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are provided with for your conveyancing in Pitsea should be the figure that you are charged.
Some weeks ago I was advised by my mortgage company that their panel solicitors operate no sale no fee basis for conveyancing in Pitsea. My purchase aborted nevertheless the solicitors have requested search fees! They are claiming that the fees are seperate!
Pitsea conveyancing search charges are disbursements not solicitors costs as these are due to independent parties.
