Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bacup

We wanted to use a property lawyer in Bacup for our house purchase. Our financial adviser informed us that our mortgage lenders Bank of Ireland won't deal with them. Surely this is unduly restrictive?

Lenders tend to imposes restrictions either the type or the volume of conveyancing firms on their approved list of lawyers. Typical examples of such criteria being that a firm must have two or more partners. As well as restricting the profile of firm, a few banks have reduced the amount of solicitor practices they use to act for them. You should note that Bank of Ireland have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Bank of Ireland Conveyancer Panel. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the reduction of conveyancing panels a few years ago even though there are differing opinions about the level of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Statistics from the Land Registry reveal that hundreds of law firms, including some in or near Bacup only carry out one or two conveyances per annum.

Various online forums that I have come across warn that are a common cause of hinderance in Bacup conveyancing transactions. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released findings of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the most frequent causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Local searches are not likely to be the root cause of delay in conveyancing in Bacup.

I opted to have a survey done on a property in Bacup prior to retaining lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the property. My surveyor advised that some lenders may refuse to issue a loan on such a house.

It varies from the lender to lender. Bank of Scotland has different requirements for example to Birmingham Midshires. If you e-mail us we can investigate further with the relevant bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Bacup. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Bacup to see if the conveyancing will be more expensive.

The benefit of a local Bacup conveyancing practice is that you can pop in to execute documents, present your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local intelligence which is a bonus. That being said it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If if people you trust instructed your friend and they were impressed that should trump using an unfamiliar Bacup conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being based in the area.

My a dozen years ago. He has since got wed, widowed and in recent months got remarried. He will be marketing the flat this June. I believe he will just be asked to provide a copy of the marriage certificates to the conveyancer however he is worried it could hold up the conveyancing. Is it worth updating the Land Registry documents for the property?

You are not required to update the title for the property as long as you have the proof required to demonstrate how the name change resulted.

The purchaser’s conveyancer will review the registered entries and require evidence to prove the name change for example marriage certificates.
