I recently had an offer accepted on a house in Cotgrave. My mortgage broker recommended their conveyancers. I paid an on account payment of £225. Shortly after, the solicitor called me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Bank of Ireland panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

I was told three weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Skipton. Is it usual for Skipton to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Cotgrave is approved on their conveyancing panel? Skipton have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.

A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Skipton to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Skipton conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I have justbecome aware that Arc property Solicitors have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Cotgrave for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 18 months ago. How can I establish that my home is not still registered in the name of the previous owner?

The quickest method to check if the property is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Cotgrave conveyancing specialists.

How does conveyancing in Cotgrave differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Cotgrave come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because developers in Cotgrave usually acquire the site, 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 used to new build conveyancing in Cotgrave or who has acted in the same development.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Cotgrave is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can give?

Flying freeholds in Cotgrave are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Cotgrave you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Cotgrave may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

I am 3 weeks into a freehold purchase having been recommend to a firm by the high street agent to do our conveyancing in Cotgrave. I am am very dissatisfied with the quality of service. Could you you assist me in finding new lawyers?

They would have to be very poor in order to consider diss instructing them. Has the loan offer been issued? In the event that it has you need to make them aware of the replacement lawyer and have the offer are re-issued. Your solicitor ideally should be on the lenders panel to avoid added fees and frustration. That should be your starting point.
