I am hoping to receive a mortgage offer from Halifax. My intention is to use a Licensed Conveyancer in Henbury. Does the Halifax Conveyancing panel include conveyancers regulated by the CLC?
The Halifax conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, represented by the Council or Mortgage Lenders or BSA, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.
I have given 2 months notice to my existing landlord and must be out of my let out apartment in Henbury by 20/4/2021. Conveyancing on my purchase is progressing. How realistic is it to complete in six weeks as I wish to avoid having to find temporary accommodation?
Generally one should not provide notice for your letting unless you have exchanged. If you have not previously done so, update to your conveyancer and ask them to they chase the other solicitors, try to get a realistic time scale from them that everyone will aim towards
I am assisting my aunt sell her flat in Henbury. Does the conveyancing solicitor arrange an energy assessment or should I organise this?
Following the abolition of Home Information Packs, energy assessments was retained a compulsory part of selling a house. An EPC should be commissioned in advance of the property being placed on the market. It is not a task that conveyancers ordinarily arrange. If you are using a Henbury conveyancing solicitor they might be able to arrange EPC’s given their contacts with long established Henbury energy assessors
We expect to receive a AIP from Leeds Building Society this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Leeds Building Society recommend any Henbury solicitors on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Henbury solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Leeds Building Society through the process.
RBS have agreed my mortgage in principle, my bid on a apartment in Henbury has been agreed to, now what?
The property agent will need to be informed of your property lawyer's details (make sure the property lawyers are on the lender’s approved list). Telephone RBS or your financial adviser and finalise any relevant documentation. RBS will appoint a valuer who will get in contact with the selling agent or vendor to arrange a time for the valuation to occur. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes about a week to get a mortgage offer. RBS will send the offer to you and your property lawyers. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Henbury.
I have recentlybeen informed that Stirling Law have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Henbury for a purchase of a leasehold flat 12 months ago. How can I establish that the property is in my name in the name of the previous owner?
The easiest method to see if the property is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Henbury conveyancing specialists.
