Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Corbridge

I am nearing an exchange on a house in Corbridge and my mum and dad have transferred the ten percent deposit to my lawyer. I am now informed that as the deposit has been sent from someone other than me my conveyancer needs to make a notification to my bank. Apparently, in also acting for the lender he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I disclosed to the mortgage company about my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for him to raise this?

The lawyer is obliged to clarify with lender to make sure that they understand that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only report this to your lender if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

As someone clueless as to the Corbridge conveyancing process what is the number one tip you can give me for the legal transfer of property in Corbridge

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Corbridge or throughout Northumberland is an adversarial process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there is an abundance of opportunity for friction between you and other parties involved in the transaction. For example, the vendor, estate agent and sometimes a lender. Appointing a law firm for your conveyancing in Corbridge is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE person in the legal process whose interest is to act in your best interests and to protect you.

We are witnessing a worrying increase of a "blame" culture- someone must be at fault for the process taking so long. We recommend that you must always trust your conveyancer ahead of the other parties in the home moving process.

We are buying a property in Corbridge. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a solicitor? On the day of competition we have to send funds into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our money?

Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.

I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in September 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Bank of Ireland are being pedantic. The Corbridge solicitor who is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Bank of Ireland are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Bank of Ireland have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Bank of Ireland have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Bank of Ireland may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

Nationwide have agreed my home loan in principle, my bid on a property in Corbridge has been agreed to, now what?

Your estate agent will wish to be advised as to your property lawyer's details (ensure that the solicitors are on the lender’s approved list). Call up Nationwide or your financial adviser and finish off any relevant forms. Nationwide will appoint a valuer who will get in contact with the selling agent or owners to book an appointment. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes on average ten days for the mortgage offer to be issued. Nationwide will issue the offer to you and your property lawyers. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Corbridge.

Due to the input of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Corbridge in advance of instructing conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. The surveyor has said that some lenders may refuse to give a mortgage on this type of house.

It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different requirements from Halifax. If you e-mail us we can check via the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Corbridge. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Corbridge to see if the conveyancing will be more expensive.

Jane (my partner) and I may need to sub-let our Corbridge ground floor flat temporarily due to taking a sabbatical. We instructed a Corbridge conveyancing practice in 2001 but they have since shut and we did not think at the time seek any advice as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?

A small minority of properties in Corbridge do contain a provision to say that subletting is only allowed with permission. The landlord is not entitled to unreasonably withhold but, in such cases, they would need to see references. Experience dictates that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting permission.

Leasehold Conveyancing in Corbridge - Sample of Questions you should ask before buying

    Please note that where the lease has fewer than eighty years it will affect the value of the apartment. Check with your mortgage company that they are content with the length of the lease. A short lease means that you will probably have to extend the lease at some point and you need to have some idea of what this will be. For most Corbridgelease extensions you will be be obliged to have been the owner of the premises for two years before you are legally able to extend the lease. Who are the managing agents? Does the lease have more than 85 years unexpired?
