Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hope

Some advice if I may. My Hope lawyer is assuring me that he has toorder Hope conveyancing searches asthe firm are on the Virgin Moneyconveyancing panel. These Hope searches cost a lot of money can this be avoided?

You have limited options available to you. As you are obtaining a mortgage with a mortgage company your lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your solicitor would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook conditions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Hope conveyancing searches.

Do lawyers ask for an advanced payment for my conveyancing in Hope?

If you are buying a property in Hope your solicitor will request that you put them with funds to cover the search fees. This will be the total of the cost of the conveyancing searches. If any down payment is payable against the total price then this should be asked for shortly ahead of exchange of contracts. The final balance that is needed will be payable shortly before completion.

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

As you are obtaining a mortgage with RBS your lawyer must comply with the formal instructions contained in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for RBS. The CML Handbook includes minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to RBS where a lease fails to meet these specifications. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not limited to Hope.

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Hope. I have a mortgage agreed with Virgin Money. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Virgin Money, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel.

Planning on purchasing a apartment in Hope. 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 TSB 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 Hope property lawyer is on the TSB conveyancing panel.

I have todaybecome aware that Arc property Solicitors have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Hope for a purchase of a leasehold flat 18 months ago. How can I check that the property is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?

The easiest method to see if the premises is registered to you, 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 Hope conveyancing specialists.

How does conveyancing in Hope differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Hope approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because developers in Hope usually acquire the site, 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Hope or who has acted in the same development.

Am I right to be concerned by 3rd parties that I am dealing with are suggesting a web based conveyancing firm as opposed to a local Hope conveyancing practice?

As with many professional services, often suggestions from family and friends can be most helpful. Yet there are numerous players in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and banks might all recommend solicitors to retain. Sometimes these solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there exists a commercial relationship behind the endorsement. You have the discretion to choose your preferred lawyer. However, bear in mind that many banks specify a panel list of solicitors you have to use for the lender aspect of your transaction.
