Can I use your services to recommend a Conveyancing solicitor in Helsby even if I’m not purchasing or disposing of a house, for example if I want to acquire an office in Helsby with a mortgage from Godiva Mortgages Ltd?

The service is mainly utilised to select residential conveyancing solicitors in Helsby but we have listed at the end of this page a few Helsby commercial conveyancing firms. You should make contact with the company directly to see if they are also authorised to represent Godiva Mortgages Ltd

We have agreed to purchase a house in Helsby. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Skipton have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

As your lender is Skipton your lawyer must comply with the formal instructions set out in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Skipton. The CML Handbook contains minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to Skipton where a lease does not meet these conditions. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not limited to Helsby.

I am expecting a DIP from UBS 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 UBS recommend any Helsby solicitors on the UBS conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

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

After what feels like an age I have had an offer on a flat in Helsby agreed to, the sellers do nevertheless have an associated purchase. The vendors have put an offer on a flat, however it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other apartments in the pipeline. I have instructed a high street conveyancing solicitor in Helsby. What should be my next step? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Kent Reliance?

It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is approx £1k, then survey, Helsby conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you must check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Kent Reliance approved list. Concerning the subsequent steps this very much depends on the specifics of your transaction, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. During a rising market some buyers would apply for the mortgage with Kent Reliance and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their property lawyer to press on with the conveyancing in Helsby.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Helsby is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Helsby are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Helsby you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Helsby 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 residence.

I'm converting the mortgage on my existing house to a buy to let mortgage with Norwich and Peterborough Building Society and intend to use the remaining equity as a down payment on further house. The location we are talking about is Helsby. Will your lawyers be able to act for the two mortgage companies and tie in the conveyances?

Make use of our search tool on this page to ensure that the conveyancers are approved by both mortgage companies. Assuming that they are your solicitor should be able to connect the two conveyancing matters but you should have a chat with you lawyer and make apparent your desired outcome and needs.

We're FTB’s - had an offer accepted, but the property agent has warned us that the vendor will only move forward if we use their chosen conveyancers as they want a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a family solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Helsby

It is unlikely the vendors are behind this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated purchaser is counter productive. Speak to the vendors direct and explain that (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you intend to instruct your preferred Helsby conveyancing firm - rather thanthose that will provide their estate agent a referral fee or achieve conveyancing figures demanded by senior management.
