Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Irlam

I am not well enough to travel far from Irlam. Is there a reason why all Irlam lawyers aren't automatically on all bank panels?

Pre- 2008 most banks demonstrated an approach to risk which differs from the current day. The Financial Services Authority in 2010 carried out a thematic review into mortgage fraud which in summary warned lenders: know the solicitors on your panel. Accordingly, lenders have since looked to extract more data from law firms about their operations and the individuals who work for them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum volume of transactions. Thousands of firms have found themselves removed from lender panels even though they had an exemplary track record, no complaints and zero claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Many firms were never going to satisfy the minimum volume of transactions the lenders set.

How does conveyancing in Irlam differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Irlam come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because house builders in Irlam typically acquire the land, 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Irlam or who has acted in the same development.
