Is the fact that my conveyancer in Stanford Le Hope is not on my mortgage company's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of the firm’s conveyancing?
That would more than likely be a wrong assumption to make. There are all sorts of perfectly reasonable explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator indicated that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the solicitor is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Where you are concerned you should contact the Stanford Le Hope conveyancing practice and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.
When will exchange of contracts occur in sale conveyancing in Stanford Le Hope and am I required to attend the conveyancers branch?
Where you are local to our conveyancing solicitors in Stanford Le Hope you are invited in to sign contracts. That being said, the law practices we recommend offer a national conveyancing service and give just as comprehensive 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. Signing on the dotted line is just a prerequisite for the solicitor to officially exchange at the suitable time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The procedure 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 Stanford Le Hope)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
I am aiming to move home in March. Will my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Stanford Le Hope. Conveyancing solicitor was chosen before I stumbled across your site.
On the day of completion you will need to pick up the keys from the property agent however this can only be done when the sellers solicitors confirm to the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be collected. After that you will need to inform the removal company that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a specific removal organisation but can help you locate a residential property solicitor in Stanford Le Hope or a legal practice that specialises in conveyancing in Stanford Le Hope.
We expect to receive a AIP from Barclays this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Barclays recommend any Stanford Le Hope solicitors on the Barclays conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Stanford Le Hope solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Barclays conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Barclays through the process.
I have paid off my mortgage with Co-operative. I assume I don't need a Stanford Le Hope conveyancer on the Co-operative panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your Co-operative mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Co-operative mortgage from the register. Co-operative, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Co-operative has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Co-operative has instructed the Land Registry to do so
