Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hale

My husband and I are planning to acquire a house in Hale and have appointed a Hale conveyancing practice. Within the past 48 hours our solicitor has forwarded the sale agreement to be signed with a detailed report with a view to exchanging next week. Platform Home Loans Ltd have this afternoon contacted us to inform me that there is now an issue as our Hale conveyancer is not on their conveyancing panel. Is this a problem?

When purchasing a property with the benefit of a mortgage it is conventional for the purchasers' lawyers to also represent the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your solicitor should contact your lender and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You don't have to instruct a firm on the bank's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Hale lawyers, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it may delay matters as you have another set of people involved.

I own a freehold residence in Hale but nevertheless pay rent, why is this and what is this?

It’s unusual for properties in Hale and has limited impact for conveyancing in Hale but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.

Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges have existed for many centuries, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the creation of new rentcharges post 1977.

Previous rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence after 2037 is to be extinguished.

Me and my partner are buying a apartment in Hale. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a solicitor? On completion day we will need to deposit our life savings into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our monies?

Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.

Is it the case that all Hale solicitor firms on the UBS conveyancing panel are regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?

As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the UBS approved list of solicitors they would need to be overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. The majority of mortgage companies do list licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such firms would be overseen by the CLC.

Can I be sure that the Hale conveyancing solicitor on the Principality panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in Hale obtaining recommendations is a good starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always advocate that you speak with the solicitor conducting your conveyancing.

Various online forums that I have come across warn that are the main cause of obstruction in Hale conveyancing transactions. Is this right?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the conclusions of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature within the top 10 causes of hindrances in the conveyancing process. Searches are not likely to feature in any holding up conveyancing in Hale.

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Hale I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 years on the lease. There is not much else in Hale for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?

If you require a mortgage that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.

How much experience do your Hale conveyancing solicitors have with Help To Buy, Shared Equity and similar schemes?
