Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my solicitor in Yeadon is not on my bank's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of her conveyancing?
It would be unwise to jump to that conclusion. There are plenty of plausible explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator indicated 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) lack of transactions (2) the solicitor is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should contact the Yeadon conveyancing firm and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your bank.
Is it possible for conveyancing in Yeadon to be finalised in under 3 weeks?
In a situation where you are under a tight deadline for your conveyancing we would recommend that your conveyancer is familiar with the area as they will have local contacts and insight. It is possible that they could have conducted previoushouses in the same neighbourhood. You would be best advised to use a Yeadon conveyancing lawyer. Second, check that the lawyer is on the lender panel. It is estimated that nearly one in five of Yeadon conveyancing deals are suspended or derailed after discovering a buyer’s solicitor was not on their banks member panel. In many cases this discovery resulted in the conveyancing being held up by as much as 21 days. It is claimed that this issue affects in the region of one hundred thousand home sales annually. Most Yeadon conveyancing practices can not act for certain banks so do check as early as possible.
I have recentlydiscovered that Wolstenholmes have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Yeadon for a purchase of a leasehold flat 9 months ago. How can I establish that my home is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?
The quickest way to see if the premises is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Yeadon conveyancing specialists.
Given that I will soon part with over three hundred thousand on a property in Yeadon I wish to have a conversation with the conveyancer concerning thetransaction before appointing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?
Absolutely - we would be delighted to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you first talking to the solicitor who will be carrying out your property ownership legalities in Yeadon.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is unique individual, not a matter reference. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are calculated and presented to you for your conveyancing in Yeadon should be the figure that you end up paying.
Would local authority permission be necessary to split a single dwelling into two flats in Yeadon? This has occurred to a property adjacent to my house in Yeadon and was unaware of it happening until the works were complete.
Planning consent is needed for splitting a single house in Yeadon into flats but probably not for converting back to single dwelling-house so, in answer to your query, yes.
