Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Plymouth

I am obtaining a mortgage offer from Lloyds. I hope to enlist the help of a Licensed Conveyancer in Plymouth. Does the Lloyds Conveyancing panel exclude Licensed Conveyancers?

The Lloyds conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, associated to the Council or Mortgage Lenders or BSA, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.

The Plymouth conveyancing lawyers that just started acting on my house acquisition in Plymouth have without warning shut down. I only went with them because I needed a solicitor on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel and my previous Plymouth lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take one hundred and fifty pounds for searches. What do I do now?

If you have an estate agent involved then inform them immediately so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to the problems encountered. Most sellers would be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new solicitors may be able to assist.

We had chosen solicitors with offices in Plymouth on the Co-operative solicitor panel. They have just invoiced me an additional sum for handling the Co-operative mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Co-operative?

Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your conveyancing practitioner may charge a fee for this. This fee is not set by Co-operative but by your Plymouth solicitor. Some firms on the Co-operative panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but plenty of firms incorporate it on their overall fee.

I am expecting a DIP from Yorkshire BS this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Yorkshire BS recommend any Plymouth solicitors on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Plymouth solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Yorkshire BS through the process.

My offer was accepted on a house in Plymouth on 14/5/2024, valuation was booked 3 days later, all came back fine. Property lawyer instructed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to RBS and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the RBS conveyancing panel. Are RBS entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for RBS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the RBS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

Is there anything unique about your site and alternative online quote calculators when it comes to conveyancing in Plymouth?

At this site secure a conveyancing quote via a Solicitor or Licensed Conveyancer that has a full understanding of the issues of your conveyancing in Plymouth. Unlike many estate agents and many comparison sites we do not operate commission arrangements with solicitors. Many agents and online brokers 'recommend' the firm who pay the most per referral, not the best value conveyancing in Plymouth

My conveyancing in Plymouth completes on Friday, however the owners I am buying from wishes to move out 24 hours later at afternoon. Do I accept this?

If you need a loan then your property lawyer will require that the premises arevacant on Friday - the lender will demand it.
