At what point can the exchange of contracts occur in purchase conveyancing in Plymouth and am I required to attend the lawyers office?

Where you are in close proximity to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Plymouth you are invited in to sign contracts. That being said, the law practices we recommend offer countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give as equally diligent and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email. The executing of the purchase agreement is not the critical part. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the firm to address the formalities at the suitable time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Plymouth)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

Just bought a terraced house in Plymouth , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record the transfer to my name? My Plymouth conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be certain the post completion formalities are dealt with.

As far as conveyancing in Plymouth registration is no faster or slower than the rest of the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ according to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any 3rd parties. At present roughly three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but some can be subject to protracted hold-ups. Historically registration occurs after the purchaser has moved in to the property therefore 'speed' is not always top priority yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer should speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

My fiance and I are buying a four bedroom ground floor flatin Plymouth with a loan from a bank. We have selected a conveyancer in Plymouth but our lender says she’s not on their "panel". It seems we have little choice but to instruct one of the our mortgage company panel firms or keep our Plymouth conveyancer and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that our mortgage company use our Plymouth lawyer?

No, not really. The mortgage company mortgage issued is subject to conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank's conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels, including many conveyancing solicitors in Plymouth : a mortgagee could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your lender.
