Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Harehills

Having sold my house in Harehills last July but my buyer keeps calling me to moan that her lawyer is waiting to hear from myconveyancer. What should my lawyer have done following completion?

Post completion of your house sale your lawyer should deliver the transfer documentation and all additional paperwork to the purchaser's solicitors. If applicable, your conveyancer must also confirm that the mortgage has been redeemed to the buyers solicitors. There are no post completion tasks just for conveyancing in Harehills.

I had a mortgage agreed in principle with Nationwide. Harehills conveyancing lawyers were instructed. How long does it take for Nationwide to send the offer to the solicitor?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Nationwide completed the valuation? Have you informed Nationwide as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Nationwide conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.

I currently have a mortgage with Coventry BS for my property in Harehills. Conveyancing was finalised some time 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 BTL mortgage or inform Coventry BS?

Your original mortgage agreement with Coventry BS will provide that you need their approval in advance of renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Coventry BS’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Coventry 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 Coventry BS directly. You need not do this via a Coventry BS conveyancing panel lawyer.

After shopping around on the internet I have found a Harehills conveyancing practitioner having checked that they are on the RBS conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

RBS will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually RBS 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 solicitor 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 Harehills postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with RBS, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Harehills.

three months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Harehills concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 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 premises 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.

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Harehills ahead of instructing solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. My surveyor has said that some banks may not grant a loan on a flying freehold premises.

It depends who your proposed lender is. HSBC has different requirements for example to Halifax. If you e-mail us we can check via the appropriate bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Harehills. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

My husband and I are new to the buying process - agreed a price, but the selling agent informed us that the vendor will only move forward if we use the agent's recommended lawyers as they want an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family conveyancer who is accustomed to conveyancing in Harehills

It is improbable the sellers are driving this. Should the seller desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a genuine buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Contact the owners directly and make sure they understand (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you are going to use your preferred Harehills conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will provide their estate agent a introducer fee or meet his conveyancing targets demanded by corporate headquarters.
