A relative advised me that if I am purchasing in Chorlton I should ask my conveyancer to perform a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

A search of this type is sometimes quoted for as part of the standard Chorlton conveyancing searches. It is a large report of about 40 pages, listing and detailing important information about Chorlton around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime statistics, Chorlton Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information about Chorlton.

It has been 2 months since my purchase conveyancing in Chorlton concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £180,000. 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.

How does conveyancing in Chorlton differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Chorlton come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Chorlton tend to purchase the real estate, 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 property lawyers 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Chorlton or who has acted in the same development.

In my capacity as executor for the estate of my uncle I am disposing of a property in Swansea but reside in Chorlton. My lawyer (approximately 260 miles from meneeds me to sign a stat dec prior to completion. Can you recommend a conveyancing lawyer in Chorlton who can attest this legal document for me?

strictly speaking you are unlikely to need to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily or notary public or qualified solicitor will be fine regardless of whether they are based in Chorlton

My conveyancers in Chorlton have advised me that no longer have my conveyancing file. At the time of my purchase I took out a mortgage with the lender. Is it case that being on the lender conveyancing panel they need to have retained the file for a prescribed period?

It very much depends from lender to lender but many of the Terms and Conditions of Conveyancing Panel Appointment require the file to be held for a period of 6 years. That being said we have not seen a copy of the mortgage company Conveyancing Panel Terms. It might be worth you contacting the bank directly.
