Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Turvey

The vendors of the property we are hoping to buy have appointed a conveyancing firm in Turvey who has insisted on a exclusivity agreement with a non-refundable deposit 6,000. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?

This kind of arrangement isn't common in Turvey, conveyancers will often encourage clients away from them as they divert attention from the main conveyancing focus and if you end up having your deposit forfeited then the lawyer at best left with an upset client and at worst a litigious one. Furthermore, there is no guarantee that just because the owner has signed a lock out agreement they will sell to you. They may be inclined to break the contract if they are offered a big enough offer to do so because a wronged claimant with the benefit of a exclusivitycontract will still be obliged establish consequential losses from the breach and these may not amount to the extra amount that your seller may secure by breaking the contract, no matter how morally shameful that may be.

What happens if my solicitor is removed from the Co-operative Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Turvey?

First, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

I am assisting my sister sell her house in Turvey. Will the solicitor order an energy assessment or should I organise this?

Following the demise of Home Packs, energy assessments was maintained a compulsory part of selling a house. An energy performance certificate needs to be commissioned prior to the property being marketed. This is not something that conveyancers ordinarily organise. If you are using a Turvey conveyancing practitioner they might be willing to arrange EPC’s given their contacts with reputable Turvey energy assessors

This question may be naive but I am new to the house moving as FTB of a garden flat in Turvey. Do I receive the keys to the property on the completion date from my lawyer? If so, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Turvey?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the completion advance to the owner’s conveyancers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be able to collect the keys from the selling Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.

About to purchase maisonette in Turvey. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Turvey conveyancer is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel.

My step-father has recommend that I appoint his conveyancing solicitors in Turvey. Should I find my own conveyancer?

No doubt the best way to find a conveyancing solicitor is to get guidance from friends or relatives who have previously instructed the solicitor that you are considering.

My wife and I are purchasing a 2 bedroom flat in Turvey. When we first instructed conveyancing practitioner, they said that they were on all major UK bank panels. Our mortgage broker contacted us today to say that they are not on the Kent Reliance approved list. If it turns out to be true, what should we do? Should we just find a different conveyancing practitioner that is on their approved list or should we cover the costs for separate representation, with Kent Reliance selecting their own preferred lawyer.

Where you are purchasing a property needing a mortgage it is conventional for the purchaser’s lawyers to also represent the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a property lawyer has to be on that lender's list of approved lawyers. An application has to be made by the lawyer to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict conditions which the solicitor has to fulfill. Some banks now require their panel firms to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your conveyancing practitioner should call Kent Reliance to find out if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You don't have to instruct a firm on Kent Reliance's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Turvey lawyers, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it may delay matters as you are adding another conveyancer into the equation.
