Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Warwickshire

My wife and I have just bought a property in Warwickshire. We have since encountered a number of issues with the house which we believe were omitted in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? Can you clarify the type of searches that should have been conducted for conveyancing in Warwickshire?

It is not clear from the question as what problems have arisen and if they are unique to conveyancing in Warwickshire. Conveyancing searches and due diligence initiated during the legal transfer of property are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, the vendor answers a questionnaire called a SPIF. If the information proves to be misleading, you could possibly take legal action against the owner for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Warwickshire.

My wife and I have recently appointed a conveyancing solicitor in Warwickshire. I need to find out if they are on the Bank of Scotland approved list of lawyers. Could you advise?

The first thing to do is e-mail your conveyancer and enquire whether they can act for the lender. Otherwise you should get in touch with Bank of Scotland who may be able to assist.

is it true that all Warwickshire conveyancing solicitors on the RBS conveyancing panel are regulated by the SRA?

As solicitors, in order to be on the RBS conveyancing panel they would need to be governed by the SRA. Some mortgage companies do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the organisation would be overseen by the CLC.

My husband and I have organised a further advance on our mortgage from Aldermore as we wish to conduct alterations to our home in Warwickshire. Are we obliged to select a bricks and mortar Warwickshire solicitor on the Aldermore conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?

Aldermore would not normally require firms on their approved list of lawyers to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Aldermore conveyancing panel.

My offer was accepted on an apartment in Warwickshire on 4/8/2022, valuation was booked 4 days after, received a clean bill of health. Solicitor retained, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Lloyds and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Lloyds to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

My company is planning to take an assignment of a lease of an office on a shopping parade. Can you recommend conveyancers offering fixed charges for non-domestic conveyancing in Warwickshire for less than £2000?

We can recommend firms who have an in-depth of experience of commercial conveyancing in Warwickshire, including the disposal and purchase of businesses as well as simply premises. If you are looking to purchase or sell a shop, pub, restaurant, office, retail unit or a whole business we can find you the right lawyer. Regarding the fees this will depend on the structure and terms of the proposed transaction. Let us have your details or call us so that we may supply you with a detailed commercial conveyancing quote.

We're FTB’s - agreed a price, but the selling agent has warned us that the owners will only issue a contract if we appoint the agent's preferred lawyers as they need a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family conveyancer who is familiar with conveyancing in Warwickshire

We suspect that the seller is unaware of this ultimatum. If they require ‘a quick sale', alienating a genuine purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Avoid the agents and go straight to the owners and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to appoint your preferred Warwickshire conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will earn the negotiator at the agency a commission or hit his conveyancing thresholds set by head office.
