Tips for completing conveyancing faster

Your conveyancing solicitor can drive your move forward, meaning that they will chase the other parties, including the other side's solicitors, search providers, the managing agents and other parties in a chain. Instructing a proactive conveyancing solicitor is the first step to increasing your chance of completing your home move faster. However there are numerous steps you can follow to fast-track the conveyancing:

  • Ask your solicitor to order searches early
  • Promptly complete and return forms and other paperwork as soon as possible
  • If you are selling, respond to any queries as soon as you can

Following these steps alone could reduce the time it takes to complete your sale or purchase by several days.

Online Conveyancing Quotes

Home buyers and sellers who have chosen traditional solicitors for a previous move might feel the cheaper fees quoted by a conveyancer they have found online are suggestive of poor service, or are suspiciously good.

Whilst it is accurate that the quality of conveyancing varies considerably from firm to firm, service levels, speed or cost have little to do with whether or not a conveyancing solicitor markets their services online.

Although some home buyers prefer to be able to visit their conveyancing solicitor in person, this is not essential. A proactive solicitor should help to speed up your move more than a lawyer you need to meet in person.

Chancel in Pembrokeshire

Liability for Chancel Repair in Pembrokeshire

Liability for chancel repair applies to parishes throughout the UK, where properties built on rectorial land remains subject to that estate's obligations. This dates back to the medieval period, when churches (or more specifically their chancels) were maintained by wealthy owners of rectorial land. Since this time, large estates have been broken down into 100's or 1, 000's of privately owned properties.

The future of Chancel Liability

Unlike tithes and similar obligations, chancel liability is unlikely to be abolished any time soon. Fortunately, however, churches are required to inform the Land Registry of liable properties by a 2013 deadline. Past this point, they will be unable to make a claim for chancel repairs for a registered property if this declaration was not made prior to the deadline.

Buyers should be aware that the situation is less clear for property which remains unregistered at the Land Registry.

The current approach to Chancel Searches

If an initial chancel search reveals that the residence is in a parish where liability may arise, your conveyancing solicitor may advise an more in-depth search be carried out. Insurance is readily available for most properties.

After the Church of Wales' disestablishment in the early 20th Century, conveyancing transactions in Wales are unlikely to need such a search.

Lenders in Pembrokeshire

What are the consequences if your solicitor is not on your Lender's panel?

Panels of solicitors are maintained by mortgage lenders in order to undertake legal work on mortgaged properties. More recently, lenders have begun to remove firms which have either not completed many conveyancing transactions or have failed to meet other criteria. These options are available to any homebuyer whose solicitor is not on their lender's panel:

  • Try to obtain a mortgage from another lender who will instruct your Conveyancing solicitor.
  • Instruct another firm of Conveyancing solicitors who are on your lender's panel to handle your Conveyancing.
  • Continue with your present Conveyancing solicitor, but accept that a separate firm will also act for the lender, and that you will have to pay their costs in addition.

It is usually cheaper to have the same firm act both for you and your lender, and carry out all the conveyancing work in connection with a purchase and the mortgage. Issues to consider if you intend to swap to a firm on the panel:

  • The second firm may have a different fee structure, or higher fees
  • Work which the first solicitor has completed already may need to be paid for regardless of your decision.
  • Your new conveyancing solicitor may have weaker local knowledge.
