My father advised me that in buying a property in Crosby there could be various restrictions as to what one can do in terms of external alterations to the property. Is this right?

There are a number of properties in Crosby which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to execute external alterations. Part of the conveyancing in Crosby should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.

Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Crosby. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I would like to complain about the lender. How do I make a complaint?

Almost all lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Team at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.

Planning on purchasing a house in Crosby. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Crosby conveyancer is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel.

I moved into my home on 2 November and my personal details is yet to be on the land registry website. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Crosby advises it will be registered in less than a month. Are properties in Crosby particularly slow to register?

As far as conveyancing in Crosby is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than the rest of the country. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any interested persons or bodies. As of today in the region of 80% of such applications are fully dealt with within two weeks but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Historically registration takes place after the buyer is living at the premises thus an expedited registration is not always primary concern yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers can contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I opted to have a survey carried out on a house in Crosby in advance of instructing conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. The surveyor has said that some lenders may refuse to issue a mortgage on this type of house.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Crosby. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
