At what point can the exchange of contracts occur in sale conveyancing in Sacriston and am I required to be at the solicitors office?

If you are round the corner to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Sacriston you are welcome to attend to sign the paperwork. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we recommend offer countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give just as 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. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the solicitor to address the formalities at the suitable time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where a lengthy "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Sacriston)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

The Sacriston conveyancing firm that I recently instructed on my purchase in Sacriston have without warning closed. I only went with them because I had to have a lawyer on the UBS conveyancing panel and my family Sacriston lawyer was not. I sent them a cheque for two hundred pounds in advance. What should be my next steps?

Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then inform them straight away so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to reasons beyond your control. Hopefully they will 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 UBS 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 lawyers should be in a position to assist.

I bought my flat on 2 September and the transaction details is not yet registered. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Sacriston said it should be registered in a couple of weeks. Are properties in Sacriston uniquely lengthy to register?

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Sacriston registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can vary according to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry need to notify any other persons or bodies. Currently in the region of 80% of submission are completed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to longer hold-ups. Registration takes place after the buyer has moved in to the premises therefore 'speed' is not usually primary concern but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

My fiance is buying a shared ownership flat in Sacriston. He has received an estimate by the solicitor suggested by the selling agents totaling £1245 . It was seven years ago I sold and purchased a home and the fee was £440. Have costs really gone up that much?

What does the conveyancing estimate include? Is it just for the legal fees, or what you will be paying in total (for example Sacriston searches, land registry fees, etc)
