Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Macclesfield

I am in need of a conveyancer. Should I go for for an online conveyancer rather than a family Macclesfield conveyancing solicitor?

In the main conveyancing solicitors in your neck of the woods will have strong relationships with your local authority, which can assist with the Macclesfield conveyancing searches that your conveyancer will require on your transaction. It can only be a plus if they have existing relationships with the Land Registry overseeing your area Macclesfield, other conveyancers in the location and Macclesfield Estate Agents.

My Macclesfield solicitor has identified an inconsistency between the assumptions in the home valuation survey and what is revealed within the conveyancing documents. My solicitor has advised that he must check that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my lawyer’s approach legitimate?

Your lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for both parties.

Should our solicitor be asking questions concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Macclesfield.

Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors specialising in conveyancing in Macclesfield. Some people will acquire a property in Macclesfield, completely aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or sell the property. Steps can be carried out during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Lawyers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, however there are a numerous checks that may be initiated by the purchaser or by their lawyers which will give them a better appreciation of the risks in Macclesfield. The conventional set of information given to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) includes a usual inquiry of the owner to discover if the premises has suffered from flooding. In the event that the residence has been flooded in past and is not notified by the vendor, then a buyer may commence a claim for damages as a result of such an misleading answer. A buyer’s conveyancers may also carry out an environmental report. This should reveal whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations will need to be made.

About to purchase a new build apartment in Macclesfield. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Macclesfield

    The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Macclesfield is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Macclesfield are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Macclesfield you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Macclesfield may ascertain 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 property.

I was recommended by a few selling agents in Macclesfield to get a quote from a solicitor using your seach tool. Is there a financial upside for Estate Agents to recommend your lawyers rather than a competitor’s?

We refuse to offer any referral fee for sending work our way. We found it would be just too difficult a fee because a client could think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
