Having invested time reviewing online forums for a high-quality solicitor in Tavistock, many comment that I must instruct a CQS accredited solicitor. Can you explain what CQS is?
Tavistock Conveyancing Quality Scheme law firms have been granted certification under the Law Society's Scheme (CQS) The Law Society created CQS to promote high standards in the in the legal transfer of properties. CQS enables consumers to identify practices who provide a quality residential conveyancing. Tavistock is one of locations in England and Wales in which CQS have a presence. The conveyancing scheme requires law firms to undergo a strict assessment, compulsory training, self-reporting, random audits and yearly assessments in order to maintain CQS status. It is open only to members of the Law Society who meet the demanding standards set by the scheme and has the support of the Legal Ombudsman.
Is it the case that all Tavistock CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Nottingham conveyancing list of approved practices?
Some major banks and building societies now make use of CQS as the starting point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. CQS membership however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for firms wishing to join their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.
Can you point me to a directory of Principality panel solicitors in Tavistock on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?
No. There is no such facility on the CML or Building Society Association sites. A small selection of mortgage companies make their panel listings viewable on the web. Where you are in need of a Tavistock property lawyer on the Principality please make the most of our facility.
I have finally had an offer on a maisonette in Tavistock agreed to, but there is a chain. The vendors have offered on somewhere, however it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other properties in the pipeline. I have instructed a local conveyancing solicitor in Tavistock. What do I do now? At what stage should I apply for the mortgage with Nationwide?
It is understandable to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (home loan application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Tavistock conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you must check that your lawyer is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. Regarding the next stages this very much dictated by the specifics of your transaction, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. During a rising market some purchasers would apply for a home loan with Nationwide and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their lawyer to proceed with the conveyancing in Tavistock.
How does conveyancing in Tavistock differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Tavistock contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because builders in Tavistock tend to purchase the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Tavistock or who has acted in the same development.
