Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Disley

What is the first thing I need to know concerning purchase conveyancing in Disley?

Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Disley or throughout Cheshire is an adversarial process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there exists an abundance of opportunity for friction between you and other parties involved in the legal transfer of property. E.g., the seller, selling agent and on occasion the bank. Choosing a solicitor for your conveyancing in Disley is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY person in the legal process whose interest is to act in your best interests and to protect you.

There is a worrying ongoing adversarial element to conveyancing- someone must be blamed for the process being so protracted. You your first instinct should be to trust your conveyancer ahead of the other parties in the home moving process.

I am purchasing a end of terrace house in Disley. We would like to convert the garage to a playroom at the property.Will the conveyancing process include enquiries to determine if these works are allowed?

Your property lawyer will review the deeds as conveyancing in Disley can occasionally identify restrictions in the title deeds which prevent categories of changes or need the permission of a 3rd party. Certain additions need local authority planning permissions and approval in compliance with building regulations. Some areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions. It would be wise to check these things with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.

My solicitor has informed me that flying freehold insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Disley?

The right level of flying freehold indemnity insurance should be dictated by who your lender. It would differ for example between Accord Mortgages Ltd and Leeds Building Society. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.

I have paid off my mortgage with RBS. I assume I don't need a Disley lawyer on the RBS panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

If you have finished paying off your RBS 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 RBS mortgage from the register. RBS, 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 RBS has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. RBS has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your RBS mortgage has been paid off.

It has been 2 months since my purchase conveyancing in Disley completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

How does conveyancing in Disley differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Disley contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because house 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.

I am in the process of purchasing my 1st property in Disley. Conveyancing lawyer already instructed. The mortgage adviser suggested that a survey is not needed as the property was only constructed in 2002.

As the bare minimum you need a Home Buyer's Report. Given the property was built over a decade ago the property will not come with a warranty, so you don't want to take a risk. For a property that age with no signs of problems a Home Buyer's report may suffice. The report should highlight any obvious problems and suggest additional investigation if relevant. Where there are any signs of material issues obtain a comprehensive Building Survey from the beginning.
