We're in Buckley, FTBs purchasing with a mortgage (lender is UBS , and our solicitor is on the UBS conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?

The fact that your lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not.

The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.

I recently had an offer accepted on a house in Buckley. My mortgage broker pressured me to appoint their property lawyer. I paid an advanced payment of £225. A few days later, the lawyer called me to say that they were not on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Leeds Building Society panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

After shopping around on the internet I have found a Buckley lawyer having made sure that they are on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

Kent Reliance will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Kent Reliance 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 Buckley 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.

Kent Reliance have agreed my mortgage in principle, my bid on a flat in Buckley has been accepted, what happens next?

The estate agent will wish to be informed of your property lawyer's details (make sure the conveyancing practitioners are on the bank’s approved list). Telephone Kent Reliance or your broker and complete any relevant paperwork. Kent Reliance will appoint a valuer who will get in touch with the selling agent or owners to book an appointment. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes on average a fortnight for the mortgage offer to be issued. Kent Reliance will issue the offer to you and your solicitors. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Buckley.

Should commercial conveyancing searches reveal impending roadworks that may impact a commercial estate in Buckley?

Many commercial conveyancing solicitors in Buckley will carry out a SiteSolutions Highways report as it dramatically cuts the time that conveyancers invest in looking into accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Buckley. The search result provides definitive data on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Buckley.

For every commercial conveyancing transaction in Buckley it is crucial to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified during conveyancing in Buckley?

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Buckley. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

I'm purchasing my first flat in Buckley with a loan from Bank of Scotland. The developers would not reduce the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The property agent suggested that I not inform my lawyer about this side-deal as it will jeopardize my loan with Bank of Scotland. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

My in 2005. He has been married, widowed and in recent months got remarried. He will be marketing the apartment next January. I think he will simply be requested to supply copies of his marriage certificates to the solicitor but he is worried it will delay the sale of the property. Should he appoint a conveyancing practitioner to update the Land Registry information for the property?

It is not absolutely necessary to update the title for the property as long as you have the proof required to demonstrate how the change of name resulted.

Any purchaser’s conveyancing practitioner will check the land registry information and request evidence to establish the name change for instance marriage certificates.
