Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bedlington

Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my solicitor in Bedlington is not identified on my bank's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the standard of her conveyancing?

It would not be wise to jump to that conclusion. There are plenty of plausible explanations. A recent 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) lack 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 simply call the Bedlington conveyancing firm and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your mortgage company.

How does conveyancing in Bedlington differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Bedlington approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because builders in Bedlington tend to purchase the real estate, 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 Bedlington or who has acted in the same development.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Bedlington. Before diving in I require certainty as to the remaining lease term.

If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and most are in Bedlington - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

For most Bedlington leaseholds the cost for major works tend not to be included within service charges, albeit that there some managing agents in Bedlington require leasehold owners to contribute towards a sinking fund and this is used to offset against major repairs or maintenance. Its a good idea to discover as much as you can regarding the managing agents as they will impact your use and enjoyment of the property. Being a leasehold owner you will be in the clutches of the managing agents from a financial perspective and when it comes to day to day matters like the cleanliness of the communal areas. Enquire of other people whether they are happy with them. Finally, investigate as to the dates that the service charges are due to the relevant party and precisely what it includes.

I'm buying a property in Bedlington. I have found my conveyancer's company on the Law Society's list, but I can't locate my conveyancer's name on the list. Is this a big problem?

Not every individual in the law firm must be listed by the regulator. As long there is a manager qualified to 'oversee' the conveyancing, the actual day-to-day activity can be conducted by unqualified staff.
