Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Accrington

I am purchasing a semi-detached house in Accrington. How practical is it for me to do the conveyancing?

Leaving aside the complexities and merits of DIY conveyancing in Accrington you will have to appoint a solicitor on your mortgage company's conveyancing panel to look after their interests. Most people therefore find it easier to let the solicitor act for them and the lender.

My lawyer has informed me that chancel insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Accrington?

The appropriate level of chancel indemnity insurance should be dictated by who your lender. It would differ for example between HSBC Bank and Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.

I have a mortgage with HSBC for my property in Accrington. Conveyancing was finalised some time ago. Should I wish to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform HSBC?

HSBC must be informed of your intention prior to letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of HSBC’s mortgage conditions. It may be that HSBC will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact HSBC directly. You need not do this via a HSBC conveyancing panel lawyer.

I have instructed a Accrington property lawyer having checked that they are on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

Clydesdale will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Clydesdale will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your solicitor will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Accrington postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Clydesdale, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Accrington.

We are purchasing a property and the lawyer has identified Chancel Repair to which the house may be obligated to pay given it’s proximity to the area of such a church. He has suggested insurance. Is this really required for conveyancing in Accrington

Unless a prior purchase of the premises took place after 12 October 2013 you may expect lawyers handling conveyancing in Accrington to remain recommending a chancel search and or insurance against a claim.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified as part of conveyancing in Accrington?

Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Accrington. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

At this site obtain an accurate quote via a Solicitor or Licensed Conveyancer that understands the nuances of your conveyancing in Accrington. Unlike many estate agents and brokerage sites we do not charge firms a fee if you select them for your home move in Accrington

We're new on the property ladder - agreed a price, but the estate agent told us that the owners will only move forward if we appoint their recommended lawyers as they want a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local conveyancer used to conveyancing in Accrington

It is unlikely the owners are driving this. Should the owner require ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Contact the vendors directly and make sure they understand (a)you are genuine buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you are going to instruct your preferred Accrington conveyancing solicitors - as opposed tothose that will provide the estate agent a introducer fee or hit his conveyancing targets pre-set by senior management.
