My IFA requires my Victoria Docks lawyer’ panel member for the Lloyds conveyancing panel. Can you suggest how I discover this. I have called my local Victoria Docks office but they cant find it on their system.
You are best placed to get this information from your Victoria Docks conveyancer . Most Victoria Docks law practices will keep a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each lender.
The Victoria Docks conveyancing solicitors that I recently instructed on my house acquisition in Victoria Docks have without warning closed. I chose them because I needed a lawyer on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel and my family Victoria Docks lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take one hundred and fifty pounds for searches. What do I do now?
Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then inform them immediately so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to reasons beyond your control. Most sellers would be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You should appoint new lawyers that are on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new lawyers should be in a position to assist.
I am selling our house in Victoria Docks and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. A local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used a web based conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Victoria Docks. Having lived in Victoria Docks for 5 years we know of no issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same illness)
Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Victoria Docks. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.
Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Victoria Docks
The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company?
