Are the Ashton Under Lyne conveyancing solicitors identified as being on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel, together with their details provided by Yorkshire BS?

We are aiming to move property in July. Should my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you recommend a removal company in Ashton Under Lyne. Conveyancing lawyer was chosen prior to coming across this site.

It is not clear whether my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Ashton Under Lyne building society branch on a couple of occasions and was told it does not affect the mortgage offer and they would lend. My Ashton Under Lyne conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they refuse to lend in accordance with their specific requirements. I have no idea who is right.

The conveyancing practitioner has to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 provisions for your 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 lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

I have finally had an offer on an apartment in Ashton Under Lyne agreed to, but there is a chain. The vendors have placed an offer on somewhere, but it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other properties booked. I have instructed a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Ashton Under Lyne. What should be my next step? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with HSBC?

It is normal to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Ashton Under Lyne conveyancing search charges, etc). The first course of action is to check that your conveyancer is on the HSBC approved list. As to the subsequent phase this very much dictated by the circumstances of your transaction, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many home buyers would apply for the mortgage with HSBC and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their solicitor to press on with searches.

4 months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Ashton Under Lyne concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Ashton Under Lyne is the location of the property. Can you offer any guidance?

Flying freeholds in Ashton Under Lyne are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Ashton Under Lyne you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Ashton Under Lyne may ascertain 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 premises.

My step-father has encouraged me to use his conveyancing solicitors in Ashton Under Lyne. Should I use them?
