Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hornsea

I am buying property in Hornsea. My lawyer is not on the lender conveyancing list. Can I still use my Hornsea conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the lender approved list?

You must have a solicitor to deal with the legal work required if you take out a mortgage to purchase your home. The property lawyer will conduct all the appropriate legal checks on the property, ensuring that you’re registered as proprietor and ensure that all the necessary mortgage paperwork is dealt with. One could appoint a Hornsea property lawyer of your choosing. However, if the lawyer appointed is not on the mortgage company solicitor panel further charges will be incurred as separate legal representation will be need by the lender. Bank panel applications may be submitted, so if your conveyancer has not previously applied for membership they can do so.

Can you clarify what the consequences are if my lawyer’s firm is suspended from the UBS Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Hornsea?

The first thing to point out is that, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

I have been told that property searches are the primary cause of stalling in Hornsea house deals. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the conclusions of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the common causes of hindrances during the legal transfer of property. Searches are not likely to feature in any delay in conveyancing in Hornsea.

You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
