Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Fallowfield

My partner and I are nearing an exchange on a property in Fallowfield and my mum and dad have transferred the 10% deposit to my conveyancing practitioner. I am now informed that as the deposit has not come from me my lawyer needs to disclose this to my lender. Apparently, in also acting for the mortgage company he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I advised the lender regarding my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really appropriate for him to raise this?

Your conveyancer is legally required to check with lender to ensure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only reveal this to your mortgage company if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

My brother-in-law has suggested I instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Fallowfield. I I would like to check whether they are accepted on the Birmingham Midshires approved list of lawyers. Can you or the lender confirm if they are on the panel?

You should contact the lawyer and enquire if they are on the lender panel. Otherwise please call Birmingham Midshires who may be able to assist.

Can you point me to a directory of Yorkshire BS panel conveyancers in Fallowfield on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?

Unfortunately not yet. There is no such tool on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association websites. Very few mortgage companies make their panel listings viewable online. If you are seeking to appoint a Fallowfield lawyer on the Yorkshire BS please use our facility.

My offer on a house in Fallowfield has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The sellers have put an offer on somewhere, but it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other flats in the pipeline. I have selected a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Fallowfield. What do I do now? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Principality?

It is normal to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (home loan application is in the region of £1k, then valuation, Fallowfield conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you must check that your solicitor is on the Principality approved list. As to the next stages this very much depends on the uniqueness of your case, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market the majority of buyers would apply for a home loan with Principality and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their conveyancer to proceed with searches.

I moved into my home on 16 September and my personal details are still not on the land registry website. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Fallowfield advises it would be registered in less than a month. Are transfers in Fallowfield uniquely lengthy to register?

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Fallowfield registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary according to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry need to notify any 3rd parties. Currently in the region of 80% of such applications are completed within 12 days but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Registration is effected after the purchaser has moved in to the premises therefore post completion formalities is not typically top priority but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in last month in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Fallowfield is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Fallowfield are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Fallowfield you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Fallowfield 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 premises.

Should I instruct a Fallowfield conveyancing solicitor in close proximity to the house I am buying? An old friend can handle the legal formalities but they are based 200miles drive away.

The primary upside of using a high street Fallowfield conveyancing firm is that you can pop in to sign paperwork, deliver your identification documents and pester them if necessary. They will also have local knowledge which is a bonus. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If if people you trust used your friend and they were content that must outweigh using an unfamiliar Fallowfield conveyancing lawyer just because they are based in the area.
