Is the fact that my conveyancer in Warwickshire is not listed on my mortgage company's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of the firm’s work?
That would more than likely be an incorrect assumption to make. There are all sorts of perfectly plausible explanations. A recent report by the solicitors regulator indicated that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) lack of transactions (2) the solicitor is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Where you are concerned you should contact the Warwickshire conveyancing practice and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.
We are about to sign contracts for a freehold house in Warwickshire. We have hit a snag. The loan offer with Aldermore expires on 16/4/2019 but the vendors are putting forward a completion date of 18/4/2019. Is it possible to prolong the mortgage offer?
The best person to address this issue is your lawyer who will hopefully determine if they should be discussing with the mortgage company, owner’s lawyers, property agents or possibly all parties based on the history of your conveyancing as of today.
My relative advised me that where I am purchasing in Warwickshire I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?
A search of this type is usually included in the estimate for your Warwickshire conveyancing searches. It is not a small report of more than thirty pages, listing and setting out significant information about Warwickshire around the property and the people living there. It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime statistics, Warwickshire Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information regarding Warwickshire.
Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Warwickshire. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.
Here are examples of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Warwickshire
Please supply a car parking plan. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company?
As co-executor for the will of my aunt I am selling a house in Newport but I am based in Warwickshire. My lawyer (who is 235 miles awayhas requested that I execute a stat dec ahead of completion. Can you recommend a conveyancing practitioner in Warwickshire who can witness and place their company stamp on the document?
strictly speaking you should not be required to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally any notary public or qualified solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are Warwickshire based
