Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Umberleigh

I am obtaining a offer of a home loan from Lloyds. I intend to employ the services of a Licensed Conveyancer in Umberleigh. Does the Lloyds Solicitor panel allow for conveyancers regulated by the CLC?

The Lloyds conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, represented by the CML or Building Society Association, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.

Why do I have to pay up front when it comes to conveyancing in Umberleigh?

If you are buying a property in Umberleigh your solicitor will ask you to provide them with monies to cover the search fees. Normally this is called for to cover the fees of the Local Authority Search. When the deposit is payable against the purchase price then this will be asked for shortly in advance of exchange of contracts. The closing balance that is needed should be transferred shortly before completion.

I have been told that property searches are a common reason for delay in Umberleigh conveyancing transactions. Is this right?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published conclusions of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the most frequent causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are unlikely to feature in any holding up conveyancing in Umberleigh.

I was advised by numerous property agents in Umberleigh to select a conveyancer on your site. What’s the financial advantage for Estate Agents to market your site ahead of a competitor’s?

We refuse to make any financial incentive for pointing buyers and sellers our way. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission because home movers will think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

I'm remortgaging a flat in Umberleigh. I can find my conveyancer's company on the CLC list, but I can't see my conveyancer's name as listed on the regulator's website. Is this a big problem?

Not all staff in the law firm must be listed by the regulator. As long there is a manager qualified to 'oversee' the transaction, the actual day-to-day activity can be undertaken by unlicensed staff.
