We see that you have a post code search directory identifying firms on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. Do firms pay you a commission if I retain them for our conveyancing in Bletchley?
We are a listing service only for law firms wishing to communicate if they are on the Co-operative conveyancing panel or other lender panels. We do not charge referral fees to any conveyancer that you subsequently appoint for your conveyancing in Bletchley.
I am aiming to move home in December. Will my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Bletchley. Conveyancing firm was organised prior to coming across this page.
On the afternoon of completion you will need to collect the keys from the property agent but this can only take place when the previous owners conveyancers confirm to the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be given over. You should advise the removal company that you are ready to move in. We do not suggest a particular removal company but can assist you in finding a residential property solicitor in Bletchley or a legal practice that specialises in conveyancing in Bletchley.
Can you point me to a directory of Santander panel solicitors in Bletchley on the Council of Mortgage Lender’s Website?
Unfortunately not yet. There is no such facility on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association sites. Very few lending institutions make their panel listings open the public online. Where you are in need of a Bletchley conveyancer on the Santander please make the most of our facility.
Kent Reliance have agreed my home loan in principle, my offer on a apartment in Bletchley has been agreed to, now what?
Your estate agent will want to know who your solicitors are (ensure that the lawyers are on the bank’s panel). Contact Kent Reliance or the financial adviser and finalise any outstanding forms. Kent Reliance will instruct a valuer who will get in contact with the estate agent or seller to arrange a time for the valuation to happen. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes about a week for the mortgage offer to be issued. Kent Reliance will send the offer to you and your conveyancers. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Bletchley.
My wife and I purchased a semi-detached Victorian property in Bletchley. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and HSBC Bank. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
You need to review 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 Bletchley and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also question the position with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the work.
Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Bletchley before appointing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the house. My surveyor has said that some banks will not give a mortgage on such a premises.
It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different instructions for example to Birmingham Midshires. If you contact us we can investigate further with the appropriate lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Bletchley. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Bletchley especially if they regularly deal with such properties in Bletchley.
Is it best to instruct a Bletchley conveyancing solicitor who is local to the property I am hoping to buy? An old friend can handle the conveyancing however her office is approximately 350miles away.
The benefit of a local Bletchley conveyancing practice is that you can drop in to execute documents, present your ID and pester them where appropriate. They will also have local insight which is a plus. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who instructed your friend and on the whole were content that should surpass using an unfamiliar Bletchley conveyancing solicitor just because they are round the corner.
Is there a reason that Bletchley conveyancing charges are more expensive for leasehold and freehold properties?
Leasehold conveyancing in Bletchley more often than not will involve additional work including reviewing the lease, communicating with the landlord, obtaining up to date rent receipts, landlord’s consents, management company’s accounts etc.
