Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Mancot

I sincerely hope you can help me. My Mancot solicitor is assuring me that he has toapply for Mancot conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the Lloydssolicitor panel. These Mancot searches cost a lot of money can this be avoided?

Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are taking a mortgage with a lender your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancing practitioner would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Mancot conveyancing searches.

Can you explain why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Mancot is more expensive?

Mancot leasehold properties involve far more paperwork than a freehold purchase, and therefore takes more time to examine and advise upon.Conveyancing will involve the lease having to be checked which is usually a lengthy document, queries raised to ensure that the covenants and conditions have been observed. If it is a flat there will be a management company in existence and the accounts of this will need to be checked and enquiries raised to ensure it is operating efficiently and that all monies due have been paid by the Seller to the company and if not ensuring that money is paid up to date or the appropriate undertakings obtained.

My partner and I are planning on selling our property in Mancot and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. Any high street Mancot lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed an online conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Mancot. Having lived in Mancot for many years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to get clarification that the buyers are looking for.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You must 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 illness)

How does conveyancing in Mancot differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Mancot come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because house builders in Mancot tend to acquire the site, 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 conveyancers 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 Mancot or who has acted in the same development.

Should I instruct a Mancot conveyancing solicitor in close proximity to the house I am purchasing? An old friend can handle the conveyancing however his firm is located 300miles drive away.

The primary upside of using a local Mancot conveyancing firm is that you can visit the firm to sign paperwork, present your ID and pester them if necessary. Having local Mancot know how is a benefit. However it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If you know people who instructed your friend and on the whole were impressed that must outweigh using an unfamiliar Mancot conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being based in the area.

My wife and I are disposing of a Mancot flat left to us six years ago in 2012. I have over a decades worth of conveyancing knowledge and, although retired, see no reason not to carry out the conveyancing. The purchaser's solicitor has informed me that their bank will not allow us to do our own conveyancing requiring the funds to be transferred to a solicitor's bank account.

Lending requirements to property lawyers from all CML members state that If the seller does not have legal representation the buyer’s lawyers should check whether the lender needs to be told so that a decision can be made as to whether or not they are willing to move forward.
