Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Horwich

My wife and I are intent on purchasing a maisonette in Horwich. My property lawyer is not listed on the mortgage company solicitor list. Can I still continue with my Horwich conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the lender approved list?

Your options include

  • Carry on with your existing Horwich solicitor but your mortgage company will no doubt instruct a property lawyer from their approved list. The net result is additional cost together with potential frustration.
  • Appoint a new conveyancing practitioner to act in the purchase, obviously checking they are on the lender conveyancing panel.
  • Convince your conveyancing practitioner to do everything possible to get listed on the bank’s panel of solicitors

The Horwich conveyancing lawyers that just started acting on my purchase in Horwich have suddenly shut down. I chose them because I had to have a lawyer on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel and my preferred Horwich lawyer was not. I cut them a cheque for two hundred pounds in advance. What do I do now?

Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then let them know immediately so that they advise the vendors that there may be a slight delay due to reasons beyond your control. Most sellers would be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new solicitors may be able to help.

This question may be naive but I am wet behind the ears as a first time purchaser of a ground floor flat in Horwich. Do I collect the keys to the property on completion from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will use a local conveyancing solicitor in Horwich?

On the day of completion you do not need to attend the conveyancers office in Horwich. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the completion advance to the vendor’s solicitors, and once they have received this, you should be called to pick up the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this occurs early afternoon.

Can you point me to a directory of Yorkshire BS panel conveyancers in Horwich on the Building Society Association’s Website?

Unfortunately not yet. There is no such facility on the CML or Building Society Association websites. Very few mortgage companies make their panel listings available over the internet. Where you are looking for a Horwich solicitor on the Yorkshire BS please make the most of our facility.

Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Clydesdale. Horwich conveyancing solicitors have been selected. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Clydesdale?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Clydesdale done the survey? Have you informed Clydesdale as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

Various web forums that I have come across warn that are the main reason for obstruction in Horwich conveyancing transactions. Is this right?

I'm buying my first flat in Horwich with a loan from Godiva Mortgages Ltd. The developers refused to reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative suggested that I not disclose to my solicitor about the deal as it may adversely affect my mortgage with the lender. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

There are numerous properties in Horwich on unadopted lanes. My partner and I are purchasing such a property. Are there any advantages to purchasing a property on a private road?

Horwich conveyancing practices will be familiar with conveyancing houseson private. Your conveyancing practitioner will review the title to find any rights or responsibilities. It is possible that there is a management company (wholly owned by residents) that owners pay into for the upkeep of the road. Where there is one, the road will likely be maintained and appear better than publicly maintained.
