Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Goodrich

I am mortgaging my house in Goodrich, does my lawyer need to be on the HSBC Conveyancing panel?

In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the HSBC conveyancing panel, but HSBC would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same transaction.

Can you point me to a directory of UBS panel solicitors in Goodrich on the Building Society Association’s Website?

Unfortunately not yet. There is no such tool on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association sites. Very few banks make their panel listings visible online. Where you are in need of a Goodrich solicitor on the UBS please use our tool.

After shopping around on the internet I have found a Goodrich property lawyer having made sure that they are on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

Lloyds will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Lloyds will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your property lawyer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Goodrich postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Lloyds, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Goodrich.

My offer on a detached house in Goodrich has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The owners have put an offer on a property, but it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other flats in the pipeline. I have chosen a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Goodrich. What do I do now? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Lloyds?

It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then valuation, Goodrich conveyancing search costs, etc). The first thing to do is check that your solicitor is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. As to the next phase this very much depends on the uniqueness of your transaction, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market some purchasers would apply for a home loan with Lloyds and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their solicitor to proceed with searches.

It has been 2 months since my purchase conveyancing in Goodrich took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Goodrich is where the house is located. Can you offer any opinion?

Flying freeholds in Goodrich are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Goodrich you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Goodrich 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 property.

I was recommended by a number of selling agents in Goodrich to select a solicitor on your site. Is there a financial advantage for Estate Agents to market your services over another?

We don’t give any referral fee for sending work in our direction. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as members of the public would think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

My father has suggested that I instruct his conveyancers in Goodrich. Do I follow his recommendation?

There are no two ways about it the best way to find a conveyancing lawyer is to get referrals from friends or relatives who have used the conveyancer that you are considering.
