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

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.

After shopping around on the internet I have found a Cheetham Hill conveyancing practitioner having checked that they are on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

Bank of Ireland will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Bank of Ireland will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your property lawyer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend.

I have been pointed in your direction by three or four local property agents in Cheetham Hill to find a property lawyer on your site. Is there a financial incentive for Estate Agents to market your services rather than alternative conveyancing organisations?

We don’t offer any referral fee for sending work to this site. We thought it would be too underhand a fee because a client could 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 new to the buying process - agreed a price, but the selling agent told us that the vendor will only move forward if we use the agent's preferred lawyers as they need a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Cheetham Hill

We suspect that the seller is not behind this demand. Should the seller desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious buyer is counter productive. Speak to the vendors direct and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you intend to instruct your preferred Cheetham Hill conveyancing firm - as opposed tothe ones that will give the estate agent a referral fee or hit his conveyancing targets set by HQ.

I have just appointed agents to market my garden flat in Cheetham Hill. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, however I have just received a half-yearly service charge invoice – what should I do?

It best that you pay the invoice as usual as all ground rent and service payments should be allotted on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
