Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hyde

I am progressing with the sale of my ground floor flat in Hyde and the EA has just called to warn that the buyers are changing their property lawyer. The excuse is that the mortgage company will only deal with solicitors on their conveyancing panel. Why would a major mortgage company only deal with specific law firms rather the firm that they want to appoint to handle their conveyancing in Hyde ?

Lenders have always had an approved set of law firms they are content to work with, but in the last few years big names such as HSBC, have considered and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have acted for them for more than 15 years.

Banks point to the increase in fraud by way of justification for the pruning – criteria have been stiffened as a smaller panel is easier to monitor. No lender will say how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society says it is being contacted daily by practices that have been removed from panels. Plenty of firms are unaware that they have been dropped until contacted by a borrower who has instructed them as might be the situation in your buyers' case. The buyers are unlikely to have any impact on this.

Our son-in-law is buying a new build apartment in Hyde with a mortgage from Aldermore. His solicitor has said that there is a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. What is this document - I have never come across this before?

The form is intended to provide information to the main parties engaged in the purchase. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the surveyor when requested. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Aldermore conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

I am thinking of remortgaging my home in Hyde, does my lawyer have to be on the RBS Solicitor panel?

There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but RBS will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is much more potential for delays and confusion with two solicitors involved, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.

My step-father has encouraged me to appoint his conveyancers in Hyde. Do I follow his advice?

There are no two ways about it it’s preferable to select a conveyancing solicitor is to get recommendations from friends or relatives who have used the firm that you are contemplating using.

I am hoping to put an offer on a small detached house that appears to be perfect, at a great price which is making it all the more appealing. I have subsequently been informed that the title is leasehold as opposed to freehold. I am assuming that there are particular concerns purchasing a leasehold house in Hyde. Conveyancing lawyers have are soon to be appointed. Will my lawyers set out the risks of buying a leasehold house in Hyde ?

Most houses in Hyde are freehold rather than leasehold. In this scenario it’s worth having a local conveyancer used to dealing with such properties who can assist with the conveyancing process. it is apparent that you are buying in Hyde in which case you should be looking for a Hyde conveyancing practitioner and be sure that they have experience in advising on leasehold houses. First you will need to check the number of years remaining. Being a leaseholder you will not be at liberty to do whatever you want with the house. The lease will likely included provisions such as obtaining the landlord’spermission to conduct changes to the property. It may be necessary to pay a service charge towards the upkeep of the estate where the property is part of an estate. Your solicitor will advise you fully on all the issues.

Hyde Leasehold Conveyancing - A selection of Queries before buying

    How is the lease structured? Where a Hyde lease has less than eighty years it will have adverse implications on the salability of the apartment. It is worth checking with your bank that they are willing to to proceed given the lease term. Leases with less than 80 years remaining means that you will probably need a lease extension at some point and it is worth finding out what this will be. Remember, in most cases you will be be obliged to have owned the property for two years in order to be entitled to extend the lease. Are there any major works anticipated that will increase the maintenance costs?

We have been told by many friends to expect six to eight weeks for Hyde conveyancing to complete.This was a month ago. The draft contract was only forwarded from the vendors conveyancing practitioner yesterday so does the clock start running now?

No definitive time frame exists for conveyancing in Hyde. Conveyancing is subject to too much unpredictabilities. Hyde conveyancing searches in and of themselves could take some weeks before they are received.
