When can the exchange of contracts occur in residential conveyancing in Port Isaac and do I need to be at the lawyers office?
If you are near to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Port Isaac you are invited in to sign contracts. However, the lender approved solicitors we recommend offer countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give as equally diligent and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The executing of the purchase agreement is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line is just a prerequisite for the solicitor to address the formalities at the appropriate time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where a long "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Port Isaac)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

The formalities of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Port Isaac. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I would like to complain about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?
Almost all banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.
The deeds to my house can not be found. The conveyancers who did the conveyancing in Port Isaac 5 years ago have long since closed. What do I do?
In today’s world there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your conveyancer should be aware precisely where to look for all the suitable paperwork so you may buy or sell your property without a hitch. If duplicates are not available, your solicitor can arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities protecting you against possible claims on your premises.
I'm purchasing my first flat in Port Isaac with a mortgage from Aldermore. The sellers refused to reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead.

Mortgage lender obligations are also more detailed. Given the complex nature of the process for these types of properties, the conveyancing new build fees are higher than normal.
