Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Fakenham

I require conveyancing for a flat in a relatively new development (6 years built) in Fakenham. The vast majority the properties have already been sold. Do I need carry out the neighbourhood searches as part of conveyancing in Fakenham?

You would be putting yourself at risk in not carrying out Fakenham conveyancing searches. Without searches you have no clarity over flooding, environmental etc which may mean you walk away due to potential problems down the line. If you are buying mortgage free there is no legal necessity to have them, but we would strongly advise in no uncertain terms that your solicitor conducts them. If speed and cost are top of your issues you should discuss with your conveyancer about the option of search insurance

It is is a decade since I purchased my house in Fakenham. Conveyancing lawyers have now been appointed on the sale but I can't find my title deeds. Is this a problem?

You need not be too concerned. First the deeds may be retained by your lender or they may be archived with the conveyancers who oversaw your purchase. Secondly in all probability the land will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers procuring up to date copy of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Fakenham involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is not registered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.

Me and my partner are buying a apartment in Fakenham. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a lawyer? On the day of competition we will need to deposit money into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our deposit?

Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.

I have a mortgage with Nationwide for my property in Fakenham. Conveyancing was finalised 12 months ago. In the event that I decide to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Nationwide?

Nationwide must be informed of your intention in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Nationwide’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Nationwide will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Nationwide directly. You need not do this via a Nationwide conveyancing panel solicitor.

I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Coventry BS. Is it usual for Coventry BS to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Fakenham is approved on their conveyancing panel? Coventry BS have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.

A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Coventry BS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I have been told that property searches are a common cause of delay in Fakenham house deals. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the determinations of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the top 10 causes of hindrances in the conveyancing process. Searches are unlikely to feature in any slowing down conveyancing in Fakenham.

Have purchased a a terraced house in Fakenham , how long will it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my ownership? My Fakenham conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure that my purchase is registered.

As far as conveyancing in Fakenham registration is no faster or slower than the rest of England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ depending on who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any third persons or bodies. As of today in the region of three quarters of such applications are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted delays. Historically registration takes place once the new owner has moved in to the premises therefore registration formalities is not usually an essential issue but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

I am 17 days into a freehold purchase having been referred to conveyancers by the selling agent to do our conveyancing in Fakenham. I am am very frustrated with the level of service. Could you help me find new solicitors?

They would need to be really poor in order to consider changing them. Has your mortgage been sent? In the event that it has you need to advise them of the replacement conveyancer and ensure the loan are re-sent. Your solicitor ideally should be on the banks panel to avoid added expenses and frustration. That should be your starting point. Our find a solicitor tool should help you find a lender approved lawyer for your home move in Fakenham
