I'm in the process of transferring my current residential loan to a Buy to Let Lloyds TSB Bank mortgage. The bank has said that I need a conveyancer for this. I got in contact with my former Brighouse conveyancing practitioner who dealt with the legals when I originally purchased the house.

We have very assertive vendors who has suggested a lock out contract with a down payment of 5k. Are such agreements sensible?

This kind of agreement is unusual in Brighouse, conveyancers will often sway clients away from them as they detract from the primary objective, namely conveyancing and if you end up having your deposit forfeited then the lawyer at best left with an upset client and at worst a litigious one. Secondly, there is no guarantee that just because the seller has executed an exclusivity contract they will complete the sale with you. They may breach the contract if they receive sufficient incentive to do so because a wronged buyer with the benefit of a exclusivitycontract will still be duty bound to show losses as a consequence of the breach and these may not amount to the financial upside that your seller may secure by breaking the contract, however morally condemnable that may be.

We are due to move home in August. Does my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you recommend a removal company in Brighouse. Conveyancing solicitor was organised prior to coming across this site.

On the afternoon of completion you can collect the house keys from the property agent but this can only take place when the previous owners solicitors advise the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be passed over.

I happen to be the only beneficiary of my late mum's will and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Brighouse. The Brighouse property was put into my name in May. I want to move. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership could be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the property in May. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be impacted by that. Some banks would take a practical view as this obligation is primarily there to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of properties.

I had an offer accepted on a property in Brighouse on 22/4/2024, valuation was booked 3 days later, received a clean bill of health. Conveyancer instructed, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Lloyds and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?

A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Lloyds to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Brighouse I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease.

Should you need a mortgage that many years may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted.

An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.
