Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Mirfield

The housing market in Mirfield is heating up. What can I do to speed up matters?

In the event that you are under a tight deadline for your conveyancing we would recommend that your conveyancer is familiar with the area as they will make use of local connections and insight. It is possible that they would have handled previoushouses in the same street. You would be best advised to use a Mirfield conveyancing lawyer. In addition, check that the lawyer is on the on the approved list for your mortgage company. It is estimated that 18% of Mirfield conveyancing transactions are suspended or derailed after discovering a purchaser’s solicitor was not on their banks member panel. This can often result in the home move being held up by almost 21 days. It is said that this issue impacts in the region of 100,000 home moves every year. Most Mirfield conveyancing firms can not act for certain mortgage companies so do check at the outset.

My apartment in Mirfield is up for sale and I have accepted an offer. Does my solicitor need to be required to be on the Principality conveyancing panel in order to deal with the discharge of my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Principality conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their specifications fairly frequently at the moment.

This question may be naive but I am new to the process as FTB of a ground floor flat in Mirfield. Do I collect the keys to the house on the completion date from my lawyer? If so, I will instruct a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Mirfield?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will arrange to send the completion advance to the seller's solicitors, and once they have received this, you should be called to receive the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this happens between 1 and 3pm.

My partner and I have arranged a further advance on our mortgage from Barclays as we wish to carry out improvements to our house in Mirfield. Are we obliged to appoint a bricks and mortar Mirfield solicitor on the Barclays conveyancing panel to handle the legals?

Barclays would not normally instruct a member of their conveyancing panel to deal with the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Barclays panel.

I'm at the point of looking at flats in Mirfield and I am about to put in an offer. Is it too early to have a solicitor in place? I intend to finance via a home loan with Santander.

You should start requesting conveyancing quotes from solicitors ASAP. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the EA. Given that you are getting a mortgage with Santander, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Santander conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.

4 months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Mirfield took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

I was pointed in your direction by numerous estate agents in Mirfield to find a conveyancer on your site. What’s the financial advantage for Estate Agents to offer your lawyers over another?

We refuse to offer any commission for sending work to this site. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission as a client could think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

I need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor for purchase conveyancing in Mirfield. I've land on a site which appears to be the ideal solution If it is possible to get all the legals done via web that would be preferable. Do I need to be wary? What should out be looking out for?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
