Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bamber Bridge

Is the fact that my solicitor in Bamber Bridge is not on my mortgage company's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of the firm’s conveyancing?

It would not be wise to jump to that conclusion. There are plenty of plausible explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator revealed that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) low volume of transactions (2) the solicitor is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. If you are concerned you should contact the Bamber Bridge conveyancing practice and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my property are lost. The solicitors who did the conveyancing in Bamber Bridge 10 years ago are no longer around. What are my next steps?

You no longer need to hold title original deeds to evidence that you own the land or property, as the Land Registry have everything they need in a digital format.

How does conveyancing in Bamber Bridge differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Bamber Bridge contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because house builders in Bamber Bridge usually buy the site, 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 conveyancers 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 used to new build conveyancing in Bamber Bridge or who has acted in the same development.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Bamber Bridge is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Bamber Bridge are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Bamber Bridge you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Bamber Bridge 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 residence.

My partner has encouraged me to instruct his conveyancers in Bamber Bridge. Should I choose my own property lawyer?

There are no two ways about it the ideal way to choose a conveyancing practitioner is to get feedback from friends or family who have actually previously instructed the conveyancer you're contemplating using.

Do I have to pop into the offices of the mortgage company conveyancing panel solicitor to sign the mortgage deed? If so, I will choose one who does conveyancing in Bamber Bridge as it will be easier to pop in to their offices when needed.

As opposed to ten years ago, most lenders no longer require their conveyancing panel solicitor to witness the borrowers signature. You will still be obliged to provide ID Documents and there are still distinct advantages to using a local solicitor, in your case a conveyancing solicitor in Bamber Bridge.
