Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Lake District

We are purchasing a flat and require a conveyancing solicitor in Lake District who is on the RBS conveyancing panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a firm?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for RBS . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Lake District.

I am selling our house in Lake District and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. Any local lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers instructed a national conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Lake District. We have lived in Lake District for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to obtain confirmation need.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)

I am purchasing my first flat in Lake District with a loan from National Westminster Bank. The developers refused to budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The house builders rep advised me not to tell my solicitor about the extras as it would jeopardize my loan with National Westminster Bank. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Lake District is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Lake District are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Lake District you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Lake District may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
