Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Wingate

My flat in Wingate is up for sale and I have a buyer. Does the solicitor need to be on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their panel criteria fairly frequently at the moment.

I can see plenty of information on this site concerning conveyancing in Wingate but what is your top tip for selecting the right conveyancer in Wingate

We would encourage you not to base your choice on the lowest Wingate conveyancing fees. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need.
