Application for conveyancing services
Anyone who wishes to obtain a conveyancing service from us who has already received legal services for the same or related matter, should be granted the service provided it falls within the conditions set out above.
A person who obtains a service in this way doesn’t need to:
- fill out a new application form,
- be financially assessed again, nor
- pay a second contribution.
For the purpose of managing risk, a new physical file should be opened. Likewise a new case should be opened on EOS. As no further contribution is payable, do not create a new means test or passport the new case. The case is not placed on the applications record and does not need to go through the applications (APPxxx) workflows on EOS. Place the case into the appropriate conveyancing workflow.
If you consider that conveyancing services ought to be provided for the refinancing of the transfer of a house to a spouse and certification of title is involved, or if certification of title is involved for the purpose of a first registration, make an application by way of Submission for Authority on EOS to Legal Services for the purpose of getting a decision. Any decision to refuse the service is subject to review / appeal. If a decision from Legal Services is not required, the decision to grant is informal and made locally and without any “application” process.
