Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Chorlton

I am obtaining a offer of a home loan from Nat West. I would like to use a Licensed Conveyancer in Chorlton. Does the Nat West Solicitor panel exclude conveyancers regulated by the CLC?

The Nat West conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, associated to the Council or Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.

I have an AIP. The lender mentioned the home loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to appoint their panel conveyancer as I would much rather appoint a Chorlton based conveyancing firm?

Do check but the the likelihood is that appoint one of their panel conveyancers if you accept the "fee-free" deal. Speak to the lender to determine if they make available a cash alternative. It is not unheard for a lender to give a £250 cashback as a further option in which case that money can go towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor in Chorlton.

My partner and I are planning on selling our property in Chorlton and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed on contaminated land. Any local conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using a factory type conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Chorlton. Having lived in Chorlton for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to obtain clarification need.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. What do they say? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Chorlton I like with open areas and transport links nearby, however it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Chorlton for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.

What does commercial conveyancing in Chorlton cover?

Chorlton conveyancing for business premises covers a wide range of services, provided by regulated solicitors, relating to business premises. By way of example, this area of conveyancing can cover the sale or purchase of freehold business premises or, more commonly, the assignment of existing business tenancies or the drafting of new leasing arrangements. Commercial conveyancing solicitors can also offer advice on the sale of business assets, commercial mortgages and the termination of leases.

I happen to be an executor of my recently deceased mother’s Will, with a bungalow in Chorlton which is to be sold. The house is unregistered at the Land Registry and I'm advised that many purchasers will insist that it is in place before they will proceed. What's the procedure for this?

In the situation that you have set out it seems prudent to seek to register in the names of the personal representative(s) as named in the probate and in their capacity as PRs. The Land Registry’s online guidance explains how to register for the first time and what is required re the deeds and forms. You would need to include and certified copy of the probate as well and complete the form FR1 to refer to the PRs as the applicant.
