Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Catton

I am 3 weeks into the sale of my house in Catton and the EA has just e-mailed to say that the buyers are changing their law firm. I am told that this is due to the fact that the mortgage company will only engage with solicitors on their approved list. On what basis would a leading mortgage company only work with specific law firms rather the firm that they want to appoint for their conveyancing in Catton ?

UK lenders have always had panels of law firms that can represent them, but in the past few years big names such as Santander, have considered and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have worked with them for decades.

Lending institutions point to the increase in fraud as the reason for the pruning – criteria have been narrowed as a smaller panel is easier to maintain. No lender will say how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society says it is being contacted daily by practices that have been removed from panels. Plenty of firms do not even realise they have been dropped until contacted by a borrower who has instructed them as might be the situation in your buyers' case. Your purchasers are not going to have any sway in the decision.

At what point will exchange of contracts take place for purchase conveyancing in Catton and am I required to be at the lawyers branch?

If you are local to our conveyancing solicitors in Catton you are invited in to sign the paperwork. That being said, the firms we recommend provide countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give as equally detailed and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email. The signing of the contract is not when everything is set in stone. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the firm to address the formalities when the time is right, which is ordinarily 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 Catton)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

It has been five months since my purchase conveyancing in Catton completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build apartment in Catton. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Catton

    Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided.

HM Land Registry are legally obliged to specify price sold data on the official title for domestic properties countrywide including premises in Catton. The register of ownership is a public document, so HMLR would be breaching their statutory duty excluded certain properties such as your property in Catton.

In essence you can make a request of HMLR to hide the amount paid data but the response would be a No.
