Can I be sure that the Seaton conveyancing solicitor on the Coventry BS panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Seaton getting recommendations is a good start. 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 which is cheap as chips. We would always recommend that you speak with the lawyer conducting your conveyancing.
Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Lloyds. Seaton conveyancing lawyers were selected. How long does it take for Lloyds to forward the offer to the solicitor?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Lloyds conducted the survey? Have you advised Lloyds as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Lloyds conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Seaton off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Skipton. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Skipton, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Skipton conveyancing panel.
Given that I am about to spend £400,000 on a two bedroom apartment in Seaton I wish to have a conversation with the conveyancer about myhouse move prior to instructing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?
This is something that we recommend - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the conveyancer due to be conducting your conveyancing in Seaton.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is unique individual, not a matter number. The law firms that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are quoted for residential conveyancing in Seaton should be the figure that you end up paying.
Am I best advised to instruct a Seaton conveyancing lawyer based in the area that I am buying? An old friend can execute the legal work but his firm is located a couple of hundredkilometers drive away.
The benefit of a local Seaton conveyancing firm is that you can visit the firm to sign paperwork, deliver your identification documents and pester them if necessary. Having local Seaton know how is a plus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have instructed your friend and on the whole were impressed that must trump using an unfamiliar Seaton conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being Seaton based.

I have been Googling for Seaton online conveyancing estimates. Can I be confident that all the Seaton practices that are identified on your website are on the lender conveyancing panel?
The solicitor and licensed conveyancing practices listed on our site have advised us that they are on the lender panel and agreed to advise us to take down their listing in the event of removal off of the lender panel. To date we have not been informed by either a mortgage company or a member of the public that the data about a specific Seaton firm being on the bank conveyancing panel is not accurate.
