We note that you have a post code search directory identifying law firms on the UBS conveyancing panel. Do companies pay you a referral fee if I instruct them for our own conveyancing in Wadhurst?
We are a listing service only for law firms wishing to communicate if they are on the UBS conveyancing panel or other lender panels. We do not charge referral fees to any conveyancer that you subsequently appoint for your conveyancing in Wadhurst.
we are a couple who wish to acquire a newly converted apartment in Wadhurst with a residential mortgage from Skipton Building Society.We use our Wadhurst conveyancing lawyer but Skipton Building Society advised that she’s not listed on their "panel". We have to appoint a Skipton Building Society panel solicitor or retain our high street solicitor and fork out for a Skipton Building Society panel lawyer to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. The mortgage issued to you contains terms and conditions, one of which will be that solicitors must be on the Skipton Building Society approved list. in the past, most mortgage companies had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Skipton Building Society
We are intent on selling our home in Wadhurst and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Wadhurst conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a factory type conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Wadhurst. Having lived in Wadhurst for six years we know of no issue. Should we contact our local Authority to seek confirmation that the buyers are looking for.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You should check with 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 life insurance to cover that same ailment)
How does conveyancing in Wadhurst differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Wadhurst contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Wadhurst typically buy the real estate, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Wadhurst or who has acted in the same development.
I have been told by numerous estate agents to expect up to two months for Wadhurst conveyancing to complete.This was four weeks ago. The property information was only sent from the vendors lawyer yesterday so now does it countdown?
You should take with some degree of scepticism any assurance as to expedited completion times. Rather you should enquire about the average timeframe to complete Wadhurst conveyancing deals and if they are happy to aim towards an agreed target date for your house move in Wadhurst
