Q.

Barclays Bank is going to be our mortgage lender - is there anything we need to consider?

A.

Traditionally, almost all solicitors could perform legal work for both buyers and mortgage lenders. In some cases, lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel', resulting in greater legal costs for house purchasers if their solicitor cannot act for the lender. We are able to act for the vast majority of mortgage lenders.

Is your solicitor team set up to handle fast completions on the conveyancing of auction properties in Sheldon?

A.

In fact we deal with auctions throughout the UK and frequently carry out work for bidders at auction. Lawyers strongly encourage auction buyers to select a fast conveyancing firm before the date of the auction to allow for a full report of the legal papers for the lot.

Post day of bidding, the lawyer must be focused on get through the legal side of things in a month as typically required by the conditions of sale.

Whether buying or selling, the sooner the better. The legal work can then start immediately. Some suggest waiting before instruction until a chain is completed, but delays can risk the other side pulling out, particularly in uncertain market conditions.

Q.

How many weeks should conveyancing legal work usually need, in your opinion?

A.

The number of weeks required to buy or sell a residence can vary, according to a number of issues affecting the property including whether it is a leasehold property being transferred. 8 to 12 weeks is the average for many firms, whereas our solicitors aim to complete the process within six weeks.

Q.

How common is gazumping?

A.

Gazumping occurs when the 1st buyer's offer is rejected, following initial acceptance, by the property owner, choosing instead a higher offer. Though gazumping is uncommon when property prices are falling, there is still a risk. Instructing a conveyancing solicitor early to handle your transaction should help to reduce the likelihood of gazumping.
