Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Crosby

Me and my partner are due to exchange buying a house in Crosby but as a result of wreckage from a small fire at the property I have was able negotiate reparation from the owner of three thousand pounds in the form of a deduction in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of amending the contract but Co-operative are not allowing this. Should they have been involved?

The conveyancer that is on a Co-operative approved list is duty bound to advise Co-operative of any amendments to the sale price. If you were to refuse your conveyancing practitioner to notify the reduction to Co-operative then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Co-operative and you would have to appoint a new property lawyer for your conveyancing in Crosby.

I'm the only recipient of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Crosby. The Crosby property was put into my name in April. I want to move. I do know about the CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership will be treated the same way as though I had purchased the property in April. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?

The CML handbook mandates solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be impacted by that. Most lenders would take a practical view as this provision is chiefly there to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of properties.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Leeds Building Society. I assume I don't need a Crosby solicitor on the Leeds Building Society panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your Leeds Building Society mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Leeds Building Society mortgage from the register. Leeds Building Society, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Leeds Building Society has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Leeds Building Society has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Leeds Building Society mortgage has been paid off.

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

Most lenders have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are sorted out effectively and efficiently. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Crosby. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.

Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Crosby

    Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared. Please supply a car parking plan.

I opted to have a survey carried out on a house in Crosby ahead of retaining solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the property. The surveyor has said that some mortgage companies tend not issue a loan on such a home.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Lloyds has different instructions from Nationwide. Should you wish to telephone us we can look into this further via the appropriate bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Crosby. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

We're first time buyers - had an offer accepted, but the estate agent informed us that the vendor will only move forward if we appoint the agent's preferred lawyers as they want a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family conveyancer who is familiar with conveyancing in Crosby

We suspect that the owner is unaware of this requirement. If they want ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious buyer is counter productive. Speak to the vendors direct and make sure they understand (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you will continue to instruct your own,trusted Crosby conveyancing lawyers - as opposed tothose that will earn their estate agent a kickback or hit his conveyancing targets demanded by HQ.

What advice can you give us when it comes to appointing a Crosby conveyancing practice to deal with our lease extension?

When appointing a solicitor for lease extension works (regardless if they are a Crosby conveyancing practice) it is imperative that they be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We advise that you make enquires with several firms including non Crosby conveyancing practices before you instructing a firm. Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions could be helpful:

    What volume of lease extensions has the firm completed in Crosby in the last year? How familiar is the firm with lease extension legislation?
