I selected a high street lawyer for our conveyancing in Bollington recently. After carefully reading the fine print I notewe are on the hook for fees even if the dealdoes not proceed. Should I ditch them and appoint an on-line firm promising no move no charge conveyancing in Bollington?
Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will generally be higher to counteract the conveyances that do not go ahead. Do bear in mind that these schemes generally do not cover expenditure for instance Bollington conveyancing search fees.
My wife and I are only a couple days away from an exchange on a property in Bollington and my mum and dad have sent the ten percent deposit to my solicitor. I am now advised that as the deposit has not arrived from me my solicitor needs to disclose this to my lender. I am advised that, in also acting for the bank he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I disclosed to the mortgage company about my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really appropriate for him to raise this?
Your conveyancing practitioner is legally required to check with mortgage company to make sure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only disclose this to your bank if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
Do conveyancers ask for an advanced payment when it comes to conveyancing in Bollington?

I'm the sole recipient of my late father’s estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the my former home in Bollington. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in April. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership may be considered the same way as though I had purchased the house in April. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The CML handbook mandates solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be affected by that. How practical a view banks take of it, depend on the bank as this obligation chiefly exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of property.
The mortgage over my property is with Nationwide for my property in Bollington. Conveyancing was finalised 12 months ago. If I am intending to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Nationwide?
You must advise Nationwide in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Nationwide’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Nationwide directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Nationwide conveyancing panel solicitor.
I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in July 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Nationwide are being a right pain. The Bollington solicitor who is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Nationwide are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Nationwide have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Nationwide have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Nationwide may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I would like to sublet my leasehold flat in Bollington. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask him. Is permission from the freeholder required?
The lease dictates the relationship between the freeholder and you the flat owner; specifically, it will set out if subletting is not allowed, or permitted but only subject to certain caveats. The accepted inference is that if the lease contains no expres ban or restriction, subletting is allowed. The majority of leases in Bollington do not contain subletting altogether – such a clause would undoubtedly devalue the flat. Instead, there is usually simply a requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly supplying a copy of the sublease.
