I am buying a maisonette in Didsbury. My property lawyer has never been on on the bank approved list. Is it possible for me to continue with my Didsbury conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the mortgage company list of approved lawyers?
You must have a conveyancing practitioner to deal with the legal work required if you need a mortgage to buy your home. The property lawyer will conduct all the necessary investigations on the property, make sure that you’re registered as proprietor and ensure that all the necessary mortgage paperwork is dealt with. One can appoint a Didsbury property lawyer of your choosing. Nevertheless, if the conveyancer appointed is not a member of the bank solicitor panel supplemental costs will arise as separate legal representation will be need by the bank. Lender panel applications can be submitted, so provided your lawyer has not historically sought membership they should take the chance to apply.
We were just about to exchange contracts for a semi detached house in Didsbury. We have hit a snag. The loan offer with Leeds Building Society expires on 28/11/2022 but the vendors are insisting on a completion date of 30/11/2022. Can one prolong the mortgage offer?
The person best placed to address this issue is your lawyer who should determine if he or she is should be discussing with the mortgage company, owner’s conveyancers, estate agents or possibly all three given what has happend in your transaction as of today.
My Solicitor in Didsbury has never been on on the The Royal Bank of Scotland Conveyancing Panel. Is it possible for me to retain my prefered solicitor even though they are excluded from the The Royal Bank of Scotland panel?
Your options are as follows:
- Complete the purchase with your preferred Didsbury solicitors but The Royal Bank of Scotland will need to instruct a solicitor on their list of acceptable firms. This will inevitably rack up the total legal fees as well as cause delays.
- Find an alternative solicitor to act in the conveyancing, obviously checking they are on the The Royal Bank of Scotland panel
How does conveyancing in Didsbury differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Didsbury contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because builders in Didsbury usually buy the land, 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 conveyancers 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 Didsbury or who has acted in the same development.
