Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Chorley

Are all Chorley Conveyancing Quality Solicitors on the UBS conveyancing panel?

It is true that some lenders now utilise the accreditation scheme as the kick off point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS accreditation however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. Nevertheless,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitor practices wishing to join their approved list of firms.

About to purchase flat in Chorley. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Chorley solicitor is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel.

I had an offer accepted on a house in Chorley on 3/8/2021, valuation was booked 3 days after, received a clean bill of health. Property lawyer appointed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Kent Reliance and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Are Kent Reliance entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Kent Reliance to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

What can a local search tell me about the property my wife and I buying in Chorley?

Chorley conveyancing often starts with the ordering local authority searches directly from your local Authority or through a personal search organisations such as Searchflow The local search plays an important role in most Chorley conveyancing purchase; that is if you wish to avoid any nasty surprises after you move into your property. The search should supply information on, amongst other things, details on planning applications relevant to the premises (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of 13 subject areas.

I am buying a new build house in Chorley with the aid of help to buy. The builders would not move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The sale representative suggested that I not to tell my solicitor about this side-deal as it could affect my loan with the bank. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

My step-father has urged me to use his lawyers for conveyancing in Chorley. Should I choose my own property lawyer?

There are no two ways about it the ideal way to choose a conveyancing lawyer is to have recommendations from friends or family who have actually used the conveyancer that you are considering.

I have just had an offer accepted on a leasehold flat in Chorley and the estate agent that we are using recommended his conveyancer. She quoted £1000 including VAT and disbursements. Does this sound like a good deal?

Don't just go on 1 quote. One should seek like-for-like quotes for your conveyancing in Chorley. Then choose one that you trust and just as important, is on the approved list of the bank that you are sourcing your mortgage from.
