Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hulme

I can't travel far from Hulme. What is the rationale as to why all Hulme property lawyers aren't included on all lender panels?

As inequitable as it may appear for lenders to restrict who can represent them, from the public’s or lawyer’s viewpoint, the the contrary view is that lending institutions are becoming ever more anxious and feel it necessary to shield themselves against illegal activities. As a result of this concern banks are limiting their panel of approved conveyancing lawyers to a size that they are happy to control.

The owners have rather brash sellers who has insisted on a exclusivity agreement with a deposit two thousand pounds. Are such agreements sensible?

There are a couple of primary concerns with entering into any lock out contract (occasionally referred to as an exclusivity agreement) is that it diverts attention away from making progress with the conveyancing work, so unless it requires little or no negotiation then it could transpire to be unhelpful. It is not particularly popular by Hulme conveyancing lawyers as a result. The other main concern is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted purchaser is extremely unlikely to obtain an injunctive ruling by a court to stop the seller disposing of the property to an alternative purchaser, so the only remedy open via the agreement will be the reimbursement of abortive costs and, in rare situations, the additional payment of damages.

Leasehold Conveyancing in Hulme - Sample of Queries before buying

    Is there a share of the freehold? Best to be warned if fixing the lift or some other significant cost is coming up that will be shared amongst the leasehold owners and may well dramatically increase the the service charges or result in a one off payment. In the main the cost for major works are not wrapped into the service charges, albeit that some managing agents in Hulme ask tenants to pay into a reserve fund and this is used to offset against major works.

My fiance and I are planning to purchase a 2 bedroom apartmentin Hulme with a home loan from a mortgage company. We like our lawyer in Hulme but our lender advise he's not approved on their "panel". We have to appoint from the our lender panel firms or stay with our Hulme conveyancer and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that our lender use our Hulme lawyer?

No, not really. The mortgage company mortgage issued is subject to conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the mortgage company's conveyancing panel. Until recently, most mortgage companies had large numbers of law firms on their panels, including many conveyancing solicitors in Hulme : 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. A further alternative is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your lender.
