Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bury

is it true that all Bury solicitors on the UBS conveyancing panel are governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?

As solicitors, in order to be on the UBS approved list of solicitors they would need to be overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Some mortgage companies do list licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the practice would be overseen by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

Can I be sure that the Bury conveyancing solicitor on the Yorkshire BS panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in Bury getting recommendations is a good starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always advocate that you speak with the solicitor conducting your conveyancing.

I have paid off my mortgage with Kent Reliance. I assume I don't need a Bury lawyer on the Kent Reliance panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your Kent Reliance mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Kent Reliance mortgage from the register. Kent Reliance, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Kent Reliance has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Kent Reliance has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Kent Reliance mortgage has been paid off.

Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Bury prior to retaining solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. Our surveyor advised that some lenders will not grant a mortgage on such a property.

It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different instructions for example to Halifax. If you e-mail us we can investigate further via the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Bury. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

I was recommended by numerous selling agents in Bury to choose a conveyancer using your seach tool. Is there a financial upside for Estate Agents to offer your site ahead of another?

We refuse to make any commission for directing people our way. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission because home movers will think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

My husband and I are one month into a residential purchase having been referred to solicitors by the high street agent to perform conveyancing in Bury. I am am very dissatisfied with the quality of service. Can you help me find new lawyers?

They would have to be really poor in order to consider diss instructing them. Has the mortgage offer been generated? In the event that it has you need to advise them of the new solicitor and have the offer are re-issued. Your new solicitor ideally needs to be on the mortgage company approved list to avoid escalating charges and complications. So that should be your first question of the new solicitors.

Can you offer any advice when it comes to choosing a Bury conveyancing firm to deal with our lease extension?

If you are instructing a conveyancer for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Bury conveyancing practice) it is imperative that they be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We recommend that you speak with several firms including non Bury conveyancing practices before you instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then so much the better. The following questions might be of use:

    Can they put you in touch with clients in Bury who can give a testimonial?

    Who are the managing agents? Are there any major works anticipated that will likely add a premium to the maintenance charges? What restrictions exist in the Bury Lease?
