Have just purchased a probate house at auction in Congleton. Conveyancing is required. What happens now?
Now that you have legally committed yourself to purchase you now have to retain a conveyancing solicitor soon as you are facing a fast approaching a fixed date to complete the transaction. All auction property should have a bespoke legal pack. This will include the copy title deeds, local authority and drainage searches.

I have a mortgage with Lloyds for my property in Congleton. Conveyancing was finalised months ago. In the event that I decide to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Lloyds?
You must advise Lloyds before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Lloyds’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Lloyds will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Lloyds directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Lloyds conveyancing panel firm.
After what seems like an age I have had an offer on an apartment in Congleton agreed to, but there is a chain. The sellers have put an offer on a property, but it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other flats in the pipeline. I have selected a high street conveyancing solicitor in Congleton. What should be my next step? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Kent Reliance?
It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Congleton conveyancing search charges, etc). The first thing to do is check that your property lawyer is on the Kent Reliance approved list. Regarding the subsequent phase this very much depends on the uniqueness of your transaction, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. During a rising market some home buyers would apply for the mortgage with Kent Reliance and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their conveyancing practitioner to press on with the conveyancing in Congleton.

I bought my flat on 14 June and the transaction details is not yet registered. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Congleton advises it should be dealt with in a couple of weeks. Are properties in Congleton uniquely lengthy to register?
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Congleton registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry need to notify any other persons or bodies. As of today in the region of three quarters of submission are fully dealt with within two weeks but occasionally there can be longer delays. Historically registration occurs once the purchaser is living at the premises therefore an expedited registration is not always primary concern yet if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer should contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I have checked your search tool I can't find the lawyer I was hoping to instruct as being on the mortgage company conveyancing panel. My lawyer has said that they are on the lender approved panel. How can I be sure given that they are not listed on your directory?
Not all firms are yet listed on our lender panel search tool which is still relatively new. Law firms are listing on a daily basis and it is probably the case that your lawyer is on the lender conveyancing lawyer and you should probably take them at their word.
