I can't travel far from Hexham. Is there a reason why all Hexham lawyers are not on all mortgage company panels?

Banks highlight the fact that solicitor-led fraud is thought to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud annually.The removal of law firms from lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the FSA in 2011. Its conclusions included recommendations for lending institutions to review their conveyancing panels, which kicked off a major policy change in the sector. This led to banks and building societies removing a number of firms from their panel of approved conveyancers .

Me and my brother have a renovated Victorian house in Hexham. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Lloyds TSB Bank. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same address. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You need to assess the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Hexham and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also check the position with your conveyancing solicitor who carried out the work.

How does conveyancing in Hexham differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Hexham contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because developers in Hexham usually buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Hexham or who has acted in the same development.
