Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Middleton

We are purchasing a property and need a conveyancing solicitor in Middleton who is on the Kent Reliance solicitor panel. Can you recommend a local solicitor?

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

I am considering applying for a Kent Reliance mortgage for purchase of a new build (under development) in Middleton with 70% loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Kent Reliance ?

There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Kent Reliance will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is greater potential for delays and confusion with an additional lawyer added to the mix, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.

I am due to move house in May. Should my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you recommend a removal company in Middleton. Conveyancing lawyer was organised prior to coming across your page.

On the afternoon of completion you will need to collect the house keys from the estate agent however this should only take place when the sellers lawyers inform the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be collected. You can inform the removal men that you are ready to move in. We are not in a position to recommend a particular removal organisation but can help you choose a residential property solicitor in Middleton or a lawyer with expertise in conveyancing in Middleton.

I am the only recipient of my late father’s will and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Middleton. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in January. I want to move. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship could be considered the same way as though I had purchased the property in January. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The CML handbook obliges conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be impacted by that. How practical a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the lender as this requirement is principally there to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of properties.

I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in September 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Coventry BS are being pedantic. The Middleton solicitor who is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Coventry BS are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Coventry BS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Coventry BS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Coventry BS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I note that there are debates on Chancel Insurance on online forums. Am I compelled to have this when buying a house in Middleton? or I am told that there is historic law that means some homeowners residing in a parish church boundary may be liable to contribute towards repairs to the chancel in proximity to the church. Is this appropriate for conveyancing in Middleton?

Unless a previous acquisition of the house completed after 12 October 2013 you may assume that solicitors conducting conveyancing in Middleton to continue to advocate a chancel search and or insurance against a claim.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one close by in Middleton I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Middleton in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the amount the 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 may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

My husband and I are a couple of weeks into a leasehold purchase having been directed to conveyancers by the selling agent to handle our conveyancing in Middleton. I am am extremely disappointed with the level of service. Can you you assist me in finding new solicitors?

A conveyancer would have to be very poor to suggest changing them. Has your mortgage offer been issued? If so you must advise them of the new contact details and have the mortgage documents are re-issued. Your new solicitor ideally needs to be on the banks panel to avoid supplemental expenses and delays. So that should be your starting point. The find a solicitor tool will help you find a lender approved conveyancer for your home move in Middleton
