I just acquired a flat at auction in Ferryhill. Conveyancing is required. What are my next steps?
Now that you have for all intents and purposes signed on the dotted line you must appoint a conveyancing practitioner soon as you now have a tight a fixed date to complete the purchase. All auction property will ordinarily have an associated auction pack. This will include most,if not all of the paperwork that your lawyer requires. If you have purchased leasehold premises the auction papers may provide a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing paperwork specific to a leasehold property. You should pass this on to the lawyer instructed by you ASAP. Do make sure that you have funds in order to complete the transaction on the set completion date.
A colleague advised me that in purchasing a property in Ferryhill there may be various restrictions affecting the ability to carry out external alterations to the property. Is this right?
There are a number of properties in Ferryhill which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to execute external alterations. Part of the conveyancing in Ferryhill should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.
I am being advised by my conveyancer that restrictive coveneant insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Ferryhill?
The right level of restrictive coveneant indemnity insurance depends on your lender. It would differ for example between Barclays and The Royal Bank of Scotland. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.
I am buying my first flat in Ferryhill with a loan from Halifax. The developers would not move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent suggested that I not reveal to my lawyer about the deal as it will jeopardize my loan with Halifax. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in last month in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Ferryhill is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Ferryhill are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Ferryhill you must be sure that your lawyer goes 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 Ferryhill 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.
My husband and I are a couple of weeks into a leasehold purchase having been recommend to solicitors by the high street agent to carry out the conveyancing in Ferryhill. We are not happy. Could you you assist me in finding new conveyancers?
They would have to be very bad to suggest diss instructing them. Has your loan offer been sent? In the event that it has you need to inform them of the replacement conveyancer and ensure the mortgage documents are re-sent. Your conveyancer should be on the mortgage company panel to avoid added fees and frustration. So that should be your first question of the new conveyancers.

My father-in-law mentioned that before choosing a conveyancing lawyer they need approved by your bank. This is my first home move but I have an AIP via Birmingham Midhshires and I already have a high street conveyancing solicitor in Ferryhill lined up. Will Birmingham Midhshires insist on an approved solicitor to be selected? Does a directory of approved solicitors even exist so I can appoint a conveyancing solicitor in Ferryhill?
You need to choose a solicitor that is on the Birmingham Midhshires panel. The simplest thing to do is ring your chosen Ferryhill conveyancing solicitor to check if they are on the Birmingham Midhshires panel. If they are not on the panel you have a number of choices open to you here:
- Complete the purchase with your preferred Ferryhill lawyer but Birmingham Midhshires will need to appoint a conveyancing practitioner on their conveyancing panel. This will result in additional fees together with potential interruption.
- Appoint a fresh solicitor to conduct the conveyancing, obviously checking they are on the Birmingham Midhshires conveyancing panel.
- Appeal to your property lawyer to attempt to join the mortgage company panel.
