I have just been advised by my mortgage broker that my Accrington property lawyer is not on the bank Conveyancing panel. How can I check?
The best course of action for you to take is to contact your Accrington lawyer directly. You lawyer should advise you of the situation. Where they are not on the panel they may recommend you to a Accrington conveyancing firm that is on the approved list of lawyers for your bank.
Completed the sale of my flat in Accrington last November but my buyer keeps whats apping daily complaining that their conveyancer needs to hear from myconveyancer. What are the post completion sale legalities now that I have sold?
Following your sale your solicitor is obliged to send the transfer deeds and all supplemental paperwork to the buyer’s solicitors. Where appropriate, your solicitor must also evidence that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been redeemed to the purchasers lawyers. There is unlikely to be post completion tasks specific conveyancing in Accrington.
My partner and I are selling our property in Accrington and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. Any local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using a web based conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Accrington. We have lived in Accrington for 5 years we know of no issue. Do we contact our local Authority to obtain confirmation that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. What do they say? You need to check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same illness)
I bought my apartment on 14 January and my personal details is not yet on the land registry website. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Accrington said it would be registered inside ten days. Are properties in Accrington uniquely lengthy to register?
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Accrington registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry have to notify any 3rd parties. Currently approximately three quarters of submission are fully addressed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Historically registration occurs once the purchaser is living at the premises so 'speed' is not always top priority but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Accrington is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Accrington are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Accrington you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Accrington may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
