Do the conveyancing solicitors listed on your site execute auction conveyancing in Heywood?

We know of a number of niche practitioners we can connect you with those who can conduct auction conveyancing. Heywood is one of our locations in which our lawyers cover.

It is 10 years ago since I acquired my house in Heywood. Conveyancing lawyers have now been retained on the sale but I can't find my deeds. Is this a major issue?

You need not be too concerned. Firstly there is a chance that the deeds will be with your mortgage company or they may be in the possession of the solicitor who oversaw your purchase. Secondly in all probability the title will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers procuring up to date copy of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Heywood involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is not registered it is more of a problem but is not insurmountable.

My lawyer has informed me that absentee landlord insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Heywood?

The right level of absentee landlord indemnity insurance depends on your lender. It would differ for example between Nationwide Building Society and The Royal Bank of Scotland. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.

I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in July 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Coventry BS are being pedantic. The Heywood solicitor who is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Coventry BS are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Coventry BS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Coventry BS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Coventry BS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I was told three weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Kent Reliance. Is it usual for Kent Reliance to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Heywood is approved on their conveyancing panel? Kent Reliance have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Kent Reliance to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

My wife and I are downsizing from our house in Heywood and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. Any high street Heywood conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers instructed an online conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Heywood. We have lived in Heywood for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to get confirmation need.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. What do they say? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)

I am downsizing from my property. My past solicitors closed down. It would be helpful to have a recommendation of a conveyancing firm. I happen to live in Heywood if that affects matters.

To what extent are Heywood conveyancing solicitors under an obligation to the Law Society to issue transparent conveyancing figures?

Inbuilt into the Solicitors Code of Conduct are specific rules and regulations as to how the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) allow solicitors to publicise their fees to clients.The Law Society have a practice note giving advice on how to publicise transparent charges to avoid breaching any such rule. Practice notes are not legal advice issued by the Law Society and is not to be regarded as the only standard of good practice a conveyancing solicitor should adhere to. The Practice Note does, nevertheless, constitute the Law Society’s perspective of acceptable practice for publicising conveyancing charges, and accordingly it’s a recommended read for any solicitor or conveyancer in Heywood or beyond.
