Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Wickford

It has taken forever and a day but a mortgage agreement from Santander for the refinancing of my 2 bedroom apartment is coming by the end of next week. Can you suggest a low cost conveyancing practitioner in Wickford?

You have come to the wrong place to search for the lowest fares for conveyancing solicitors in Wickford. We can offer you value for money conveyancing but our intention is not to advertise as being the cheapest. Do not be swayed by organisations seducing you with £100 conveyancing in Wickford. Optimistically, in going for cheap conveyancing, you will receive what you pay for and at worst it will result in you being stung for extras and still not end up with the service you were looking for.

We had instructed conveyancers locally in Wickford on the TSB solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a further charge for dealing with the TSB mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by TSB?

As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your solicitor can levy a fee for this. The fee is not dictated by TSB but by your Wickford lawyer. Plenty of firms on the TSB panel will levy an ‘acting for lender’ fee but plenty of practices incorporate it on their overall fee.

Planning on purchasing a house in Wickford. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Wickford property lawyer is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel.

I was told four weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by UBS. Is it usual for UBS to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Wickford is approved on their conveyancing panel? UBS have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.

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 UBS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the UBS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I am looking at a two flats in Wickford which have approximately 50 years unexpired on the lease term. should I be concerned?

There are plenty of short leases in Wickford. The lease is a legal document that entitles you to use the property for a prescribed time frame. As the lease gets shorter the marketability of the lease decreases and it becomes more expensive to extend the lease. For this reason it is generally wise to increase the term of the lease. It is often difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease as mortgage companies less inclined to grant a loan on such properties. Lease extension can be a difficult process. We advise that you seek professional assistance from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this field.
