Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Plympton

My husband and I are intent on acquiring a flat in Plympton. My property lawyer is not listed on the lender solicitor list. Is it possible for me to continue with my Plympton conveyancing solicitor even though they are excluded from the mortgage company panel?

  • Carry on with your chosen Plympton property lawyer but your mortgage company will need to use a lawyer on their approved panel. The net result is additional charges and probable delay.
  • Appoint a new property lawyer to conduct the conveyancing, ensuring that they are on the mortgage company conveyancing panel.
  • Convince your solicitor to seek to join the mortgage company panel

At what point can the exchange of contracts occur in purchase conveyancing in Plympton and am I required to be at the lawyers branch?

If you are near to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Plympton you are invited in to sign documents. That being said, the law practices we work with supply a countrywide conveyancing service and give as equally comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally. The executing of the contract is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line simply enables the conveyancer to exchange contracts 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 Plympton)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

Can I be sure that the Plympton conveyancing solicitor on the Skipton panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in Plympton seeking 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 suggest that you speak with the lawyer carrying out your conveyancing.

I have a mortgage with Santander for my property in Plympton. Conveyancing has been completed 12 months ago. If I am intending to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Santander?

Santander must be informed of your intention prior to letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Santander’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Santander will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Santander directly. You need not do this via a Santander conveyancing panel lawyer.

Lloyds have agreed my mortgage in principle, my offer on a house in Plympton has been agreed to, what are the next steps?

The property agent will wish to know who your solicitors are (make sure the solicitors are on the lender’s panel). Call up Lloyds or the broker and complete any outstanding forms. Lloyds will instruct a valuer who will get in contact with the selling agent or owners to book an appointment. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes approximately a week to receive the mortgage offer. Lloyds will send the offer to you and your lawyers. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Plympton.

My husband and I are first time buyers - had an offer accepted, but the property agent has warned us that the vendor will only move forward if we appoint the agent's chosen lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a high street conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Plympton

It is unlikely the vendors are behind this. If they require ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Speak to the owners direct and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you intend to instruct your own,trusted Plympton conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will earn their negotiator at the agency a kickback or meet his conveyancing figures pre-set by senior management.

I need to consider quotes for conveyancing in Plympton from three conveyancer and appoint one. Am I right to ask them to hold tight until I have found somewhere to purchase.

You should only get your lawyer to commence work and apply for searches once the sales memo has been sent by the estate agent especially as Plympton conveyancing searches are not inexpensive.
