We are planning to acquire a property and need a conveyancing solicitor in Wiltshire who is on the Nationwide approved panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a solicitor?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Nationwide . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Wiltshire.
Various web forums that I have come across warn that are the number one cause of delay in Wiltshire conveyancing transactions. Is this right?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the findings of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the common causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Searches are not likely to be the root cause of holding up conveyancing in Wiltshire.
Is it possible to swap solicitor as I have to choose one who is on the Yorkshire Building Society conveyancing panel. I hired a high street conveyancing solicitor in Wiltshire five minutes from me but she is not accepted by Yorkshire Building Society
It would be our pleasure to help you find a conveyancing solicitor in Wiltshire on the Yorkshire Building Society panel. Please note that the conveyancers that we work with do not pay us a referral fee if you instruct them and are regulated by the SRA who regulate all conveyancing solicitors in Wiltshire. Using search facility on this page, you can compare and instruct different solicitors and conveyancers both nationally and in Wiltshire.
We're new to the buying process - agreed a price, but the selling agent informed us that the owners will only issue a contract if we use their preferred conveyancers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Wiltshire
We suspect that the seller is not behind this ultimatum. If they want ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated purchaser is likely to cause more damage than good. Avoid the agents and go straight to the sellers and make the point that (a)you are serious purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you intend to use your own,trusted Wiltshire conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthose that will earn their negotiator at the agency a kickback or achieve conveyancing figures demanded by senior management.
Our offer on property in Wiltshire has been accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have put an offer on somewhere, however it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other flats booked. I have chosen a local conveyancing solicitor in Wiltshire. What do I do now? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with RBS?
It is usual to have apprehensions where there is a chain given your reluctance to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, Wiltshire conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you must ensure that your solicitor is on the RBS conveyancing panel. Regarding the subsequent steps this very much depends on the circumstances of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market some buyers will apply for a home loan with RBS and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their solicitor to proceed with searches.
