Is the fact that my conveyancer in Quedgeley is not listed on my bank's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of his conveyancing?
It would be unwise to jump to that conclusion. There are all sorts of perfectly plausible explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator revealed that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should simply call the Quedgeley conveyancing firm and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.
We are soon to complete on the purchase of a house in Quedgeley but as a result of wreckage from a small fire at the property I have was able negotiate compensation from the seller of £2k taking the form of a adjustment in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of amending the contract yet Leeds Building Society will not permit this. Should they have been approached?
Any lawyer being on a Leeds Building Society approved list is duty bound to advise Leeds Building Society of any changes to the sale price. If you prohibit your property lawyer to notify the price change to Leeds Building Society then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Leeds Building Society and you would have to appoint a new solicitor for your conveyancing in Quedgeley.
Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Quedgeley. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.
Here are examples of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Quedgeley
Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents.
I have been pointed in your direction by a number of estate agents in Quedgeley to find a conveyancer on your site. Is there a financial upside for Estate Agents to recommend your lawyers over and above a competitor’s?
We don’t give any commission for directing people our way. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as members of the public would think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
