Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Brackley

My fiance and I are hoping to acquire a home in Brackley and have appointed a Brackley conveyancing firm. Within the last couple of days our conveyancer has forwarded the sale agreement to be signed with a detailed report in anticipation of exchanging contracts shortly. Bank of Ireland have this morning contacted us to inform me that there is now an issue as our Brackley conveyancer is not on their approved list of lawyers. What do we do from here?

When purchasing a property with mortgage finance it is normal for the purchasers' lawyers to also act for the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your property lawyer should contact your lender and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You don't have to instruct a firm on the lender’s conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Brackley lawyers, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it will likely delay the transaction as you have another set of people involved.

As a novice what is the most important number one tip you can give me regarding purchase conveyancing in Brackley?

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Brackley and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists an abundance of room for confrontation between you and other parties involved in the transaction. For example, the seller, selling agent and on occasion a mortgage company. Selecting a law firm for your conveyancing in Brackley is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY party in the transaction whose role it is to protect your legal interests and to protect you.

Sometimes a third party with a vested interest will try and sway you that you should follow their advice. For instance, the estate agent may claim to be assisting by claiming that your solicitor is wrong. Or your mortgage broker may try to convince you to do something that is against your solicitors recommendation. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the conveyancing process.

Flying freeholds in Brackley are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses.

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 premises.
