Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Huyton

My partner and I are buying a newly built duplex in Huyton and my solicitor is telling me that she is duty bound to the lender to disclose incentives from the builder. I am under pressure to exchange contracts and my preference is not to prolong the conveyancing. is my lawyer playing by the book?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your conveyancing practitioner. A precondition to being on a lender panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

Completed the sale of my flat in Huyton last May but our buyer keeps e-mailing daily to say his conveyancer needs to hear from mine. What should have happened now that I have sold?

Post completion of your disposal your conveyancer is committed to send the transfer documentation and all additional paperwork to the purchaser's lawyers. If applicable, your solicitor should also confirm that the mortgage has been repaid to the purchasers conveyancers. There are no post completion steps just for conveyancing in Huyton.

My relative suggested that if I am purchasing in Huyton I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?

A search of this type is usually included in the estimate for your Huyton conveyancing searches. It is a large document of more than thirty pages, listing and detailing important information about Huyton around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Huyton Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime statistics, Local Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data concerning Huyton.

I have justdiscovered that Stirling Law have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Huyton for a purchase of a freehold house 12 months ago. How can I check that my home is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?

The quickest method to check if the property is registered to you, you can carry out 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 Huyton conveyancing specialists.

How does conveyancing in Huyton differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Huyton approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because new home sellers in Huyton tend to purchase the real estate, 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 Huyton or who has acted in the same development.

My partner and I are buying a garden flat in Huyton. At the time of instructing our solicitor, they told us that they were on all major UK lender panels. The mortgage broker emailed just now to advise that they don't appear to be on the RBS approved list. If it turns out to be true, what should we do? Do we just pick a new conveyancing practitioner that is on their approved list or should we pay for separate representation, with RBS appointing their own preferred conveyancer.

Where you are purchasing a property with the assistance of a mortgage it is standard for the purchaser’s solicitors to also represent the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a solicitor has to be on that lender's list of approved lawyers. An application has to be made by the property lawyer to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict conditions which the lawyer has to satisfy. Some mortgage companies now require their panel firms to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your lawyer should call RBS to find out if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You don't have to instruct a firm on RBS's conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Huyton solicitors, in which case it will likely add costs, and it will likely delay the transaction as you are adding another property lawyer into the mix.
