Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Disley

Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Disley is more expensive?

In summary, leasehold conveyancing in Disley and Cheshire usually requires more due diligence compared to freehold conveyancing. This includes lease investigation, corresponding with the landlord about serving applicable notices, obtaining current service charge and management information, obtaining the landlord’s consents and reviewing management accounts. The obligations on both the landlord and the tenant in the lease need to be studied by the buyer’s conveyancing team and read from beginning to end – regardless of the fact the lease has passed through many different property solicitors hands since it was first entered into.

I'm the only recipient of my late father’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Disley. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in May. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship could be treated the same way as if I'd bought the house in May. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook requires conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be caught by that. Some lenders would take a pragmatic view as this provision is chiefly there to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of property.

I am purchasing a property in Disley. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Yorkshire BS be concerned?

As you are obtaining a mortgage with Yorkshire BS your lawyer must check the conveyancing instructions set out in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Yorkshire BS. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook includes minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and property lawyers are required to report to Yorkshire BS where a lease fails to comply with these provisions. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not limited to Disley.

Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Disley. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?

All lenders have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Team at head office. Ordinarily complaints to a lender are sorted out effectively and efficiently. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR with full details of your complaint.

How does conveyancing in Disley differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Disley come to us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because builders in Disley usually purchase 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Disley or who has acted in the same development.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Disley is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Disley are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Disley you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Disley may determine 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 residence.

I need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor for freehold conveyancing in Disley. I've land on a site which appears to be the ideal answer If it is possible to get all formalities completed via email that would be preferable. Do I need to be wary? What are the potential pitfalls?

There are a lot of houses in Disley on private lanes. My husband and I are buying one such house. What are the advantages and disadvantages of purchasing a property on a privately owned road?

Disley conveyancing practices will be well versed in conveyancing houseson unadopted roads. The conveyancing practitioner should review the Land Registry data to find any rights or responsibilities. In many cases there is a management company (wholly owned by residents) that proprietors make annual payments for the upkeep of the road. If one exists, the road should be maintained and appear nicer than council maintained.
