Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Gatley

I plan on acquiring a maisonette in Gatley. My Solicitor is not on the bank conveyancing panel. Is it possible for me to appoint my Gatley conveyancing solicitor even though they are excluded from the lender approved list?

You must have a conveyancing practitioner to deal with the legal work required when you take out a mortgage to buy your property. The property lawyer will conduct all the appropriate legal checks on the property, ensuring that you will be registered as proprietor and ensure that all the necessary mortgage documentation is dealt with. You may appoint a Gatley lawyer of your choosing. Nevertheless, if the lawyer appointed is not a member of the mortgage company conveyancing panel supplemental costs will be incurred as separate legal representation will be required by them. Lender panel applications can be submitted, so if your conveyancer has not historically applied for membership they can do so.

I can see plenty of here regarding conveyancing in Gatley but can you isolate your top tip for appointing the right conveyancer in Gatley

Do not opt for the lowest Gatley conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of the deal.

We expect to receive a OIP from Skipton this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Skipton recommend any Gatley solicitors on the Skipton conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?

You will need to appoint Gatley solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Skipton conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Skipton through the process.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Barclays. I assume I don't need a Gatley conveyancer on the Barclays panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

If you have finished paying off your Barclays mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Barclays mortgage from the register. Barclays, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Barclays has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Barclays has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Barclays mortgage has been paid off.

Various web forums that I have come across warn that are the main cause of delay in Gatley house deals. Is this right?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published conclusions of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the most frequent causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are unlikely to be the root cause of holding up conveyancing in Gatley.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified during conveyancing in Gatley?

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Gatley. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

How does conveyancing in Gatley differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Gatley approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because new home sellers in Gatley usually purchase 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 Gatley or who has acted in the same development.

I have been advised by a few estate agents in Gatley to select a property lawyer using your seach tool. What’s the financial upside for Estate Agents to offer your site over and above another?

We don’t offer any commission for sending work in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission as members of the public would think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
