Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Holsworthy

We are purchasing a 3 bedroom flat in Holsworthy with a mortgage. We like our Holsworthy lawyer, but the bank says she’s not on their "panel". It appears that we have little choice but to use one of the mortgage company panel firms or retain our Holsworthy solicitor and pay for one of their panel lawyers to represent them. This feels very unfair; are we not able to require that the lender use our Holsworthy solicitor ?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the lender’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your Holsworthy conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

My uncle passed away six months ago and as sole heir and executor I was left the property in Holsworthy. The house had a small mortgage remaining of approximately £5k. I want to transfer the title deeds into my name whilst I re-mortgage to RBS, pay off the mortgage. Is this possible?

If you intend to re-mortgage then RBS will require that you use a conveyancer on the RBS conveyancing panel. Here is link to the Land Registry online guidance around what to do when a property owner dies. This will help you to understand the registration process behind changing the details re the registered title. in your case it would appear that you are effectively purchasing the property from the estate. Your RBS conveyancing panel solicitor pays the new mortgage money into the estate, the estate pays off the old mortgage, the charge is released and you become the owner and the RBS mortgage is registered as a charge at the Land Registry.

If you had a top tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Holsworthy what would it be?

Do not opt for the cheapest Holsworthy conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of time.

Planning on purchasing a maisonette in Holsworthy. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Holsworthy property lawyer is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel.

Our sealed bid on a semi in Holsworthy has been accepted, the sellers do however have a connected purchase. The vendors have offered on on an apartment, but it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other apartments in the pipeline. I have selected a local conveyancing solicitor in Holsworthy. What do I do now? When do I get the mortgage application with Coventry BS started?

It is usual to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Holsworthy conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you must ensure that your property lawyer is on the Coventry BS approved list. As to the subsequent stages this very much dictated by the specifics of your transaction, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market some home buyers will apply for the mortgage with Coventry BS and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their property lawyer to proceed with the conveyancing in Holsworthy.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified during conveyancing in Holsworthy?

Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Holsworthy. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

I decided to have a survey done on a property in Holsworthy prior to instructing solicitors. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. My surveyor advised that some mortgage companies tend not grant a loan on a flying freehold home.

It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different requirements for example to Birmingham Midshires. If you e-mail us we can investigate further via the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Holsworthy. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

Is it best to use a Holsworthy conveyancing lawyer based in the location that I am buying? An old friend can deal with the legal formalities but his firm is located a couple of hundredkilometers drive away.

The primary upside of using a local Holsworthy conveyancing firm is that you can pop in to execute documents, present your ID and pester them where appropriate. They will also have local intelligence which is a plus. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If if people you trust used your friend and on the whole were impressed that should surpass using an unfamiliar Holsworthy conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being local.
