I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Burton Joyce. I have a mortgage agreed with Santander. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Santander, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Santander conveyancing panel.

I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in November 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Kent Reliance are being pedantic. The Burton Joyce solicitor who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Kent Reliance are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Kent Reliance have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Kent Reliance have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Kent Reliance 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.

UBS have agreed my mortgage in principle, my offer on a property in Burton Joyce has been accepted, now what?

The property agent will want to be advised as to your property lawyer's details (make sure the solicitors are on the lender’s approved list). Contact UBS or the broker and finish off any relevant paperwork. UBS will appoint a valuer who will get in contact with the estate agent or seller to schedule a time for the valuation to take place. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes on average ten days for the mortgage offer to be issued. UBS will issue the offer to you and your solicitors. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Burton Joyce.

I understand that there are debates on Chancel Insurance on online forums. Am I compelled to have this when buying a house in Burton Joyce? or I am told that there is a law dating back centuries that could mean that owners of property residing in a parish church boundary will be compelled to contribute towards maintenance to the chancel within the church. Is this suitable for conveyancing in Burton Joyce?

Unless a previous purchase of the house took place post 12 October 2013 you can expect conveyancing practitioners handling conveyancing in Burton Joyce to remain encouraging a chancel search and or chancel repair liability policy.

How does conveyancing in Burton Joyce differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Burton Joyce approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because developers in Burton Joyce tend to acquire the real estate, 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 conveyancers 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 used to new build conveyancing in Burton Joyce or who has acted in the same development.

Am I best advised to instruct a Burton Joyce conveyancing solicitor in close proximity to the house I am hoping to buy? I have an old university friend who can conduct the legal work however they are based over three hundred kilometers away.

The benefit of a high street Burton Joyce conveyancing firm is that you can visit the firm to execute paperwork, present your identification documents and pester them if necessary. Having local Burton Joyce know how is a benefit. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If other friends have used your friend and they were happy that should surpass using an unfamiliar Burton Joyce conveyancing lawyer just because they are based in the area.
