What is the difference between a licensed conveyancer and conveyancing solicitor in Bridlington

Two types of professional can conduct conveyancing in Bridlington namely CLC regulated conveyancers or solicitors. Both professionals handle the legal services that you need to complete the sale or acquisition of property. They are both required to conduct Bridlington conveyancing on similar standards and guidelines so you may be safe in the knowledge that your conveyancing will be properly administered and that the requisite steps should be accurately attended to.

The formalities of my purchase has taken place for my property in Bridlington. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I would like to complain about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?

Almost all banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Department at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR with full details of your complaint.

I've digested plenty of house buying guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Bridlington solicitor - who is on the Barclays conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?

Barclays will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Barclays will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Bridlington surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

I acquired my house on 5 September and my personal details is yet to be on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Bridlington expressed confidence that it would be recorded in less than a month. Are titles in Bridlington particularly slow to register?

As far as conveyancing in Bridlington is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can differ according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry need to notify any other persons or bodies. As of today in the region of three quarters of such applications are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Historically registration is effected once the buyer has moved in to the property thus 'speed' is not usually an essential issue but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

How does conveyancing in Bridlington differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Bridlington come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because house builders in Bridlington usually purchase 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 property lawyers 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 Bridlington or who has acted in the same development.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Bridlington is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Bridlington are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Bridlington you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Bridlington may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. 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.

This will mean that your lease can be extended by the Court. However, you will be required to demonstrate that you have made all reasonable attempts to locate the landlord. In some cases a specialist should be useful to try and locate and prepare an expert document which can be used as evidence that the freeholder can not be located.
