We went with a local solicitor for my conveyancing in South Woodham Ferrers last week. After carefully reading the official terms of business it is apparent thatwe are responsible for fees even if our purchase doesn't happen. Should I ditch them and appoint a web based firm promising no completion no cost conveyancing in South Woodham Ferrers?
It is usually a trade off in that if "No Completion No Fee" is available then the fee levels will generally be more expensive to counteract those conveyances that do not proceed. Also remember that such schemes generally do not cover expenditure for example South Woodham Ferrers conveyancing search charges.
Our South Woodham Ferrers lawyer has uncovered a difference between the assumptions in the home valuation report and what is in the legal papers for the property. My solicitor says that he is duty bound to ensure that the bank is happy with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my conveyancer’s approach correct?
Your property lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.
I purchased my apartment on 12 June and my personal details are still not on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in South Woodham Ferrers advises it should be dealt with in less than a month. Are transfers in South Woodham Ferrers particularly slow to register?
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in South Woodham Ferrers registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can vary depending on who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry communicate with any 3rd parties. Currently roughly three quarters of submission are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Historically registration occurs once the purchaser is living at the premises so 'speed' is not usually an essential issue yet 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 husband and I are new to the buying process - agreed a price, but the agent informed us that the seller will only issue a contract if we appoint the agent's recommended lawyers as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in South Woodham Ferrers
It is improbable the sellers are driving this. Should the seller desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious purchaser is counter productive. Try to communicate with the owners directly and explain that (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are ready to progress, with finances in place © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you are going to use your preferred South Woodham Ferrers conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will provide their negotiator at the agency a kickback or hit his conveyancing thresholds pre-set by senior management.
