We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The bank mentioned the mortgage came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to use their panel lawyer as I would prefer to use a local conveyancing solicitor in Whimple?
You should check but the the probability is that allocate you one of their panel conveyancers if you accept the "fee-free" deal. Call the lender to check if they offer you a monetary alternative. In the past a few lenders offered a £250 cashback as a further option in which case you could put that amount towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor near Whimple.
We are buying a 4 bedroom semi-detached house in Whimple. The intention is to carry out a loft conversion at the house.Will legal investigations on the property include enquiries to determine if these works were previously refused?
Your solicitor should review the deeds as conveyancing in Whimple can on occasion reveal restrictions in the title deeds which restrict certain works or necessitated the consent of a 3rd party. Some works require local authority planning consent and approval in accordance building regulations. Certain areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions. It would be wise to check these things with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
How can we tell if a Whimple conveyancing solicitor on the Lloyds panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Whimple seeking recommendations is a sensible starting point. 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 advocate that you speak with the lawyer carrying out your conveyancing.
I am expecting a AIP from Coventry BS this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Coventry BS recommend any Whimple solicitors on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Whimple solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Coventry BS through the process.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my house are lost. The lawyers who did the conveyancing in Whimple 5 years ago have long since closed. What are my options?
Assuming the title is registered the details of your ownership will be held by HMLR under a Title Number. It is easy to conduct a search at the Land Registry, locate your house and secure current copies of the Registered Entries for a small fee. If the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will in most cases hold a file duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be retrieved for £20 inclusive of VAT.
