We instructed a local firm for our conveyancing in West Thurrock last week. Reviewing the terms of engagement it is apparent thatI am liable for charges even if our purchase aborts. Should I go with them or use an on-line lawyer who offer no move no charge conveyancing in West Thurrock?
It is usually a trade off in that if "No Sale No Fee" is advertised then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be more expensive to neutralise those cases that do not go ahead. You should be mindful that these schemes rarely cover disbursements for instance West Thurrock conveyancing search costs.
I am buying a new build apartment in West Thurrock and my conveyancer is telling me that she is duty bound to the bank to disclose incentives from the developer. The Estate Agents are hassling me to exchange contracts and my preference is not to delay matters. Is my lawyer right?
You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your conveyancing practitioner. A precondition to being on a lender panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified during conveyancing in West Thurrock?
Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in West Thurrock. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in West Thurrock. Conveyancing is daunting 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 conveyancing.
Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in West Thurrock
Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified.

I have checked your search tool I can't find the lawyer I was hoping to instruct as being on the lender conveyancing panel. My lawyer has said that they are on the mortgage company approved panel. How can I be sure given that they are not listed on your directory?
Not all firms are yet listed on our lender panel search tool which is still relatively new. Law firms are listing on a daily basis and it is probably the case that your lawyer is on the mortgage company conveyancing lawyer and you should probably take them at their word. Please do feel free to suggest that they completing their listing on our site as it would only cost them £1 a month to list themselves as being on the bank solicitor panel.
