Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Baguley

Why would I instruct a Baguley conveyancing firm given that web based alternatives are easier on the wallet?

Its a good idea to get 2 or 3 like-for-like quotes for conveyancing costs in Baguley and you should seek a reasonable fee calculation but don’t become consumed with looking for the lowest priced Baguley conveyancer.

What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Baguley? What am I being asked for?

Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering regulations require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to check the ID of the potential client they are dealing with prior to agreeing to accepting their conveyancing instruction. The Terms and Conditions that you are required to sign should confirm this. Your lawyer also has obligations to obtain certain documents in accordance with the CML Lenders Handbook requirements last updated on 1st December 2014. Should you refuse to hand over identification documents, your solicitor will not be able to take you on as a client.

We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The bank mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to instruct their panel solicitor as I would much rather use a high street conveyancing solicitor in Baguley?

Do check but the chances are that allocate you one of their panel solicitors should you want the "fee-free" deal. Contact the mortgage company to ask if they make available a monetary alternative. In the past a few mortgage companies offered a £250 cashback as a further option in which case that money can go towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor near Baguley.

Can you point me to a directory of Clydesdale panel solicitors in Baguley on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?

Unfortunately not yet. There is no such tool on the CML or Building Society Association sites. A small selection of lending institutions make their panel listings available on the web. Where you are seeking to appoint a Baguley lawyer on the Clydesdale please make the most of our facility.

is it true that all Baguley solicitor firms on the HSBC conveyancing panel are governed by the SRA?

As solicitors, in order to be on the HSBC conveyancing panel they would need to be overseen by the SRA. The majority of mortgage companies do list licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the organisation would be regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

How can we know in advance if a Baguley conveyancing solicitor on the Skipton panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in Baguley seeking recommendations is a sensible starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always advise that you speak with the solicitor carrying out your conveyancing.

My wife and I have a terraced Victorian property in Baguley. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and The Royal Bank of Scotland. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Baguley and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also question the situation with the conveyancing practitioner who conducted the work.

I opted to have a survey carried out on a house in Baguley prior to retaining conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. The surveyor has said that some lenders will refuse to grant a loan on such a property.

It depends who your proposed lender is. HSBC has different instructions for example to Halifax. If you contact us we can check with the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Baguley. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Baguley to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.
