Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bury

Much to our surprise we have been informed by our financial adviser that my Bury property lawyer is not on the bank Solicitor panel. How can I be certain that this is indeed the case?

You need to contact your Bury lawyer directly. It is reasonable to expect your lawyer to inform you of the situation. If they are not on the panel they may recommend you to a Bury conveyancing firm that is on the conveyancing panel for your lender.

Our son-in-law is in the process of securing a newly built flat in Bury with a mortgage from Yorkshire BS. His conveyancer has advised him of a delay in receiving the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. What is this document - I have never come across this before?

The form is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when requested. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

At what point will exchange of contracts occur in purchase conveyancing in Bury and do I need to be at the lawyers office?

If you are round the corner to our conveyancing solicitors in Bury you are welcome to attend to sign documents. However, the firms we recommend provide countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide as equally comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you digitally. The signing of the sale agreement is not the point of no return. Signing on the dotted line simply enables the firm to exchange contracts at the appropriate time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Bury)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

This question may be naive but I am new to the house moving as a 1st time buyer of a garden flat in Bury. Do I receive the keys to the house on completion from my conveyancer? If this is the case, I will find a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Bury?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the purchase money to the vendor’s lawyers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be invited to receive the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this happens early afternoon.

We are aiming to move property in July. Should my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you recommend a removal company in Bury. Conveyancing lawyer was chosen prior to coming across your page.

On the afternoon of completion you will need to pick up the keys from your property agent but this should only be done after the sellers conveyancers inform the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be passed over. Subsequently you should inform the removal company that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a particular removal company but can help you find a conveyancing in Bury or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Bury.

Can you help - my lawyer advises that lack of planning permission insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Bury?

The right level of lack of planning permission indemnity insurance should be dictated by who your lender. It would differ for example between Halifax and Barnsley Building Society. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to borrowers take out such policies.

How does conveyancing in Bury differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Bury contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because house builders in Bury usually purchase the land, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Bury or who has acted in the same development.
