What happens if my solicitor is expelled from the UBS Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Fleetwood?

First, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

Should commercial conveyancing searches reveal proposed roadworks that could impact a commercial land in Fleetwood?

Its becoming the norm that commercial conveyancing solicitors in Fleetwood will order a SiteSolutions Highways report as it dramatically cuts the time that conveyancers spend in investigating accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Fleetwood. The report sets out definitive data on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Fleetwood.

For each commercial conveyancing transaction in Fleetwood it is critical to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site. Failure to identify developments where adoption procedures have not been dealt with adequately could cause delays to Fleetwood commercial conveyancing transactions as well as pose a risk to future plans for the site. These searches are not conducted for residential conveyancing in Fleetwood.

How does conveyancing in Fleetwood differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Fleetwood come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because builders in Fleetwood usually buy the land, 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 conveyancers 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Fleetwood or who has acted in the same development.

I opted to have a survey done on a house in Fleetwood before instructing conveyancers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the property. My surveyor advised that some lenders may not give a mortgage on such a property.

It depends who your proposed lender is. HSBC has different instructions for example to Nationwide. Should you wish to telephone us we can look into this further with the appropriate lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Fleetwood. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Fleetwood especially if they are acquainted with such properties in Fleetwood.

We are in the process of purchasing a apartment in Fleetwood. Conveyancing is not complete but we would like keep our transaction price a secret from the likes of Nestoria. Is this achievable and how?

HMLR as a matter of law obliged to reveal price sold data on a register of the title for domestic properties countrywide including properties in Fleetwood. The register of title is a public document, so HMLR would be breaching their statutory obligations if they failed to allow access to the register.

In essence you can make a request of the Land Registry to hide the amount paid entry but the answer would be a No.
