Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Blaby

My partner and I are purchasing a ground floor flat in Blaby. My lawyer has never been on on the bank conveyancing list. Am I still permitted to continue with my Blaby conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are excluded from the lender list of approved lawyers?

You must use a conveyancing practitioner to deal with the formalities if you take out a loan to purchase your property. The solicitor will carry out all the necessary due diligence on the property, ensuring that you’re registered as proprietor and ensure that all the necessary mortgage paperwork is in order. You could select a Blaby conveyancer of your choosing. However, where the conveyancer selected is not on the mortgage company approved list supplemental fees will be levied as separate legal representation will be required by them. Bank panel applications may be submitted, so provided your lawyer has not previously sought membership they should take the opportunity to apply.

The vendors of the property we are looking to purchase have appointed a conveyancing practitioner in Blaby who has suggested a preliminary agreement with a non-refundable deposit two thousand pounds. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?

This type of preliminary agreement isn't common in Blaby, conveyancers are not keen on them as they detract from the main conveyancing focus and if you end up losing your deposit then the solicitor at best left with an upset client and at worst a litigious one. In addition, there is no guarantee that just because the seller has entered into a lock out agreement they will sell to you. They may be in contravention of the contract if they are offered a large enough incentive to do so because an aggrieved party with the benefit of a exclusivity agreement will still be obliged establish consequential losses from the breach and these may not equate the financial upside that your vendor may secure by breaching the agreement, no matter how morally shameful it undoubtedly is.

I require quick conveyancing in Blaby as I have an ultimatum to sign on the dotted line within one month. Luckily I do not need a mortgage. Is it possible to decline from having conveyancing searches to save fees and time?

As you are are a cash purchaser you are at liberty not to have searches conducted although no conveyancer would recommend that you don't. With lots of history conveyancing in Blaby the following are examples of what can appear and adversely impact the marketability of the property: Enforcement Actions, Outstanding Charges, Outstanding Grants, Unadopted Roads,...

How does conveyancing in Blaby differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Blaby contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because builders in Blaby tend to acquire 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Blaby or who has acted in the same development.

Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Blaby prior to instructing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. Our surveyor advised that some mortgage companies may refuse to give a mortgage on this type of property.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Santander has different instructions from Nationwide. If you contact us we can look into this further with the relevant bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Blaby. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Blaby to see if the conveyancing will be more expensive.

What can I do where I am dissatisfied with the conveyancer who handled our conveyancing in Blaby?

We live in an imperfect world, and is is a fact of life that every so often matters do not go as planned. However there is recourse where you were dissatisfied with your conveyancing in Blaby. This varies from trying to resolve matters directly with them, through to reporting a conveyancing practitioner to their regulator. If things still aren’t sorted out you may consider getting in touch with the Legal Ombudsman.
