Are the BSA planning on creating a online directory to list solicitors on the Darlington Building Society conveyancing panel for instance in Stanmore?
Lexsure has not been advised of any intention on the part of the BSA to promote such a register.
I used Stirling Law a few years past for my conveyancing in Stanmore. Now, I need the documents however the law firm is no longer operating. What do I do?
You should contact the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA) to assist in tracing your conveyancing files. They can be contacted on please contact on 0870 606 2555. Alternatively, you should use their online form to make an enquiry. You will need to provide the SRA with as much information as possible to assist their search, including the name and address in Stanmore of the conveyancing firm of solicitors you previously retained, the name of conveyancing solicitor with whom you had dealings, and the date on which you last had dealings with the firm.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Stanmore I like with open areas and railway links nearby, however it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Stanmore in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
I'm refinancing my primary home to a BTL mortgage with The Mortgage Works and intend to use the remaining equity as a down payment on another property. The location we are talking about is Stanmore. Will your conveyancers be able to act for the two lenders and link together the transactions?
Make use of our search tool on this page to be sure that the conveyancers are approved by both banks. Assuming that they are the conveyancer will be able to simultaneously deal with the two transactions but you should have a chat with you solicitor and make clear your expectations and requirements.
Am I better off to go with a Stanmore conveyancing practitioner who is local to the property I am purchasing? An old friend can handle the legal work however they are based 400kilometers drive away.
The benefit of a local Stanmore conveyancing firm is that you can pop in to execute documents, hand in your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. Having local Stanmore know how is a bonus. That being said 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 happy that must trump using an unfamiliar Stanmore conveyancing solicitor just because they are round the corner.
