The formalities of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Wolverhampton. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I would like to complain about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?

Most banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office. We understand that complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.

How does conveyancing in Wolverhampton differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Wolverhampton approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because builders in Wolverhampton typically purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Wolverhampton or who has acted in the same development.

My husband and I are 3 weeks into a residential purchase having been recommend to solicitors by the estate agent to execute conveyancing in Wolverhampton. I am am very disappointed with the level of service. Can you you assist me in finding new conveyancers?

A conveyancer would have to be really poor to suggest diss instructing them. Has your mortgage offer been generated? In the event that it has you need to advise them of the new contact details and have the offer are re-issued. The solicitor ideally should be on the banks panel to avoid supplemental charges and complications. That should be your starting point.
