My partner and I are only a couple days away from an exchange on a house in Baguley and my parents have transferred the 10% deposit to my lawyer. I am now advised that as the deposit has been sent from someone other than me my lawyer needs to make a notification to my bank. I am advised that, in also acting for the lender he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I disclosed to the bank regarding my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really appropriate for this now to delay the deal?
Your property lawyer is legally required to clarify with lender to ensure that they understand that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own resources. Your solicitor can only reveal this to your lender if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

Local searches are unlikely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Baguley.
I acquired my home on 11 November and the transaction details is not yet registered. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Baguley said it would be dealt with inside ten days. Are transfers in Baguley uniquely lengthy to register?
As far as conveyancing in Baguley is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any 3rd persons or bodies. At present approximately 80% of such applications are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Registration occurs after the new owner is living at the property thus an expedited registration is not always an essential issue but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor should speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
How does conveyancing in Baguley differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Baguley come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because builders in Baguley usually 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Baguley or who has acted in the same development.
