Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Allestree

We see that you have a search directory identifying firms on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. Do companies pay you a referral fee if I retain them for our own conveyancing in Allestree?

We are a listing service only for law firms wishing to communicate if they are on the Co-operative conveyancing panel or other lender panels. We do not charge referral fees to any conveyancer that you subsequently appoint for your conveyancing in Allestree.

We were going to get a OIP from Virgin Money this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Virgin Money recommend any Allestree solicitors on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?

You will need to appoint Allestree solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Virgin Money through the process.

Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Allestree. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?

All lenders have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Team at head office. We understand that complaints to a lender are resolved effectively and efficiently. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.

I can not fathom if my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Allestree bank branch on numerous occasions and was told it does not affect the mortgage offer and they would lend. My Allestree conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they will not lend based on their specific requirements. I simply don't know who is right.

Provided that the conveyancer is on the lender panel, they must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook provisions for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

Various web forums that I have frequented warn that are the main reason for stalling in Allestree house deals. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the findings of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the top 10 causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Searches are unlikely to feature in any delay in conveyancing in Allestree.

How does conveyancing in Allestree differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Allestree approach us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because house builders in Allestree typically buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Allestree or who has acted in the same development.

I opted to have a survey done on a house in Allestree in advance of retaining solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. My surveyor has said that some mortgage companies will not issue a mortgage on a flying freehold house.

It depends who your proposed lender is. HSBC has different requirements for example to Nationwide. If you contact us we can look into this further with the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Allestree. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Allestree especially if they regularly deal with such properties in Allestree.

I have been sourcing a conveyancing solicitor in Allestree for my home move. Is there any facility to check a firm’s record with the legal regulator?
