If you had a top tip for selecting a conveyancing solicitor in Rayleigh what would it be?

It would be unwise to be swayed by the lowest Rayleigh conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

We had selected conveyancing lawyers located in Rayleigh on the UBS solicitor panel. They are now charging me a further amount for dealing with the UBS mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by UBS?

Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your conveyancer can charge a fee for this. This charge is not set by UBS but by your Rayleigh solicitor. Numerous firms on the UBS panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but plenty of practices incorporate it on their overall fee.

I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in December 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, TSB are being pedantic. The Rayleigh solicitor who is on the TSB conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but TSB are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do TSB have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that TSB have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why TSB may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I have been told that property searches are the number one reason for hinderance in Rayleigh conveyancing transactions. Is this right?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published findings of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the most frequent causes of hindrances in the conveyancing process. Searches are not likely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Rayleigh.

I have todaybeen informed that Wolstenholmes have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Rayleigh for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 10 months ago. How can I establish that my home is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?
