Some advice if I may. My Chadderton lawyer is assuring me that she is duty bound toorder Chadderton conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the Nat Westsolicitor panel. These Chadderton checks cost a lot of money can this be avoided?

You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a bank your solicitor has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook conditions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Chadderton conveyancing searches.

What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Chadderton? Is this really warranted?

Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering laws require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to check the ID of the potential client they are dealing with prior to agreeing to accepting their conveyancing retainer. The Client Care letter that you are required to sign will no doubt stipulate this. Your lender will also require certain documents to be viewed. Where you refuse to provide ID verification documents, your conveyancer can not take you on as a client.

How does conveyancing in Chadderton differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Chadderton contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Chadderton tend to acquire 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 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 Chadderton or who has acted in the same development.

Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Chadderton ahead of instructing conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. My surveyor advised that some mortgage companies will not issue a loan on a flying freehold home.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Santander has different instructions for example to Birmingham Midshires. If you call us we can look into this further with the relevant bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Chadderton.

  • Much of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Chadderton can be bypassed where you instruct lawyers as soon as your agents start marketing the property and request that they start to put together the leasehold documentation needed by the purchasers’ representatives.
  • You believe that you know the number of years left on your lease but it would be advisable verify this via your solicitors. A buyer’s lawyer will be unlikely to recommend their client to to exchange contracts if the remaining number of years is under 75 years. In the circumstances it is essential at an early stage that you identify whether the lease requires a lease extension. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your premises on the market for sale. Many landlords or Management Companies in Chadderton levy fees for providing management packs for a leasehold premises. You or your lawyers should find out the actual amount of the charges.

It is the most frequent cause of frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Chadderton. If you are supposed to have a share in the Management Company, you should ensure that you are holding the original share certificate. Arranging a replacement share certificate is often a time consuming formality and frustrates many a Chadderton home move. If a duplicate share certificate is necessary, do contact the company director and secretary or managing agents (where relevant) for this at the earliest opportunity.
