My fiance and I are hoping to buy a newbuild flat in Ferryhill with a residential mortgage from Norwich and Peterborough Building Society.We would like to retain our Ferryhill conveyancing lawyer but Norwich and Peterborough Building Society says his firm is not listed on their "panel". We have to appoint a Norwich and Peterborough Building Society panel solicitor or retain our preferred solicitor and pay for a Norwich and Peterborough Building Society panel lawyer to act for them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. The loan offered to you is subject to its various provisions, one of which will be that conveyancers will be on the Norwich and Peterborough Building Society approved list. Until recently, most banks had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Norwich and Peterborough Building Society
The deeds to our house are lost. The solicitors who did the conveyancing in Ferryhill 4 years ago are no longer around. What are my next steps?
Assuming you have a registered title the information relating to your ownership will be documented by the Land Registry with a Title Number. It is easy to carry out a search at the Land Registry, identify your property and secure current copies of the property title for a small fee. Where the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will usually hold a certified duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be ordered for £20 inclusive of VAT.
Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Ferryhill. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.
Here are examples of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Ferryhill
Please supply a car parking plan. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore.
In my capacity as executor for the will of my aunt I am disposing of a house in Neath but I am based in Ferryhill. My conveyancer (based 300 kilometers from meneeds me to sign a stat dec ahead of the transaction finalising. Can you recommend a conveyancing practitioner in Ferryhill who can witness this legal document for me?
strictly speaking you are unlikely to be required to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally or notary public or solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are Ferryhill based
Is it necessary during the course of the conveyancing process to visit the offices of the lender conveyancing panel solicitor to execute the mortgage deed? If so, I will instruct a firm who offer conveyancing in Ferryhill so that I can attend their offices if required.
As opposed to twenty years ago, most lenders no longer require their conveyancing panel solicitor to witness the borrowers signature. You will still be obliged to provide ID Documents and there are still distinct advantages to using a local solicitor, in your case a conveyancing solicitor in Ferryhill.
