We note that you have a post code search directory listing law firms on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. Do companies pay you a referral fee if I instruct them for our own conveyancing in Grantham?

We're in Grantham, First time buyers buying with a mortgage (lender is Co-operative , and our lawyer is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?

The fact that your lawyer is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no solicitor should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.

This question may be naive but I am unexperienced as a 1st time buyer of a ground floor flat in Grantham. Do I receive the keys to the premises on completion from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will use a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Grantham?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will arrange to send the purchase money to the seller's conveyancers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be called to collect the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.

I am the sole beneficiary of my late mum's will and I have everything in my name alone, including the my former home in Grantham. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in June. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship will be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the house in June. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The CML handbook requires solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be caught by that. many mortgage companies would take a sensible view as this clause principally exists to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of properties.

The mortgage over my property is with Yorkshire BS for my property in Grantham. Conveyancing has been completed months ago. If I am intending to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Yorkshire BS?

Yorkshire BS must be informed of your intention in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Yorkshire BS’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Yorkshire BS will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Yorkshire BS directly. You need not do this via a Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel firm.

I have todaybecome aware that Stirling Law have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Grantham for a purchase of a freehold house 12 months ago. How can I establish that the property is not still registered in the name of the previous owner?
