Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Irlam

My husband and I are buying a 3 bedroom flat in Irlam with a mortgage. We have a Irlam solicitor, but the bank says he's not on their "panel". It appears that we have no choice but to appoint one of the lender panel firms or retain our Irlam property lawyer and pay for one of their panel firms to represent them. We consider that this is inequitable; can we not insist that the lender use our Irlam conveyancing practitioner ?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: 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 Irlam conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

My grandfather passed away 10 months ago and as sole heir and executor I was left the property in Irlam. The house had a small mortgage remaining of approximately £8000. I want to transfer the title deeds into my name whilst I re-mortgage to Co-operative, pay off the mortgage. Is this allowed?

Where you intend to re-mortgage then Co-operative will insist on your using a conveyancer on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. Here is link to the Land Registry online guidance around what to do when a property owner dies. This will help you to understand the registration process behind changing the details re the registered title. in your case it would appear that you are effectively purchasing the property from the estate. Your Co-operative conveyancing panel solicitor pays the new mortgage money into the estate, the estate pays off the old mortgage, the charge is released and you become the owner and the Co-operative mortgage is registered as a charge at the Land Registry.

The deeds to our home are lost. The conveyancers who dealt with the conveyancing in Irlam 10 years ago have long since closed. Will I be able to sell the house?

In today’s world there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your conveyancer should know precisely where to look for all the appropriate paperwork so you can purchase or dispose of your property without any difficulty. If duplicates are not available, your solicitor may be able to arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities protecting you against possible claims on the premises.

How does conveyancing in Irlam differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Irlam contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because builders in Irlam typically acquire 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 property lawyers 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 used to new build conveyancing in Irlam or who has acted in the same development.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one close by in Irlam I like with open areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Irlam in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?

Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

Is it best to choose a Irlam conveyancing lawyer in close proximity to the house I am hoping to buy? We have a good friend who can handle the legal formalities but his firm is located over three hundred kilometers drive away.

The primary upside of using a high street Irlam conveyancing practice is that you can drop in to execute paperwork, deliver your identification documents and apply pressure on them if necessary. They will also have local insight which is a plus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If if people you trust used your friend and they were impressed that must outweigh using an unfamiliar Irlam conveyancing lawyer just because they are round the corner.
