My partner’s uncle is a conveyancing practitioner. I expect that I'll be able to get mate’s fee for conveyancing, but if not, what level of fees should I be paying for conveyancing in Walmley?
It’s sensible to look for two or three conveyancing quotes. Do use our search tool on this page. Whilst estimates seem to contrast greatly but service levels do are distinct between solicitors as is true with the vast majority of professional services.

Can I be sure that the Walmley conveyancing solicitor on the Virgin Money panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Walmley seeking recommendations is a sensible start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always advise that you speak with the lawyer carrying out your transaction.
I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in October 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Coventry BS are being pedantic. The Walmley solicitor who is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Coventry BS are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Coventry BS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Coventry BS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Coventry BS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
Skipton have agreed my home loan in principle, my bid on a property in Walmley has been agreed to, now what?
Your estate agent will want to be advised as to your conveyancing practitioner's details (ensure that the conveyancers are on the bank’s approved list). Contact Skipton or your financial adviser and finalise any relevant documentation. Skipton will appoint a valuer who will get in contact with the selling agent or owners to arrange a slot for the valuation to occur. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes on average ten days to receive the mortgage offer. Skipton will send the offer to you and your solicitors. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Walmley.
Various internet forums that I have come across warn that are the primary reason for delay in Walmley house deals. Is there any truth in this?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released determinations of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the top 10 causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Searches are unlikely to feature in any holding up conveyancing in Walmley.
How does conveyancing in Walmley differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Walmley come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Walmley tend to acquire the land, 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 Walmley or who has acted in the same development.
