Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Huddersfield

We have very assertive sellers who has suggested a preliminary agreement with a non-refundable deposit 6,000. Are such contracts generally advanced for Huddersfield conveyancing transactions?

This form of arrangement is not the norm in Huddersfield, conveyancers will often direct clients away from them as they detract from the primary focus, namely conveyancing and if you end up losing your deposit then the solicitor is left exposed. Secondly, there is no certainty that just because the owner has signed a lock out contract they will complete the sale with you. They may be in contravention of the contract if they are offered sufficient incentive to do so because an aggrieved purchaser with the benefit of a lockoutcontract will still be legally obliged to show losses as a consequence of the breach and these may not compare to the financial benefit that the owner may obtain by breaching the agreement, however morally shameful it undoubtedly is.

I moved into my home on 7 February and the transaction details is yet to be on the land registry website. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Huddersfield expressed confidence that it would be concluded inside ten days. Are properties in Huddersfield uniquely lengthy to register?

As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can vary subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry have to notify any interested parties. As of today roughly three quarters of such applications are fully addressed within 12 days but some can be subject to protracted delays. Registration takes place after the new owner is living at the premises therefore post completion formalities is not typically top priority yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers can contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

    Does the lease contain onerous restrictions? You should be aware if it is less than eighty years it will have adverse implications on the salability of the property.
