Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Nailsworth

Finally the sale completed on my house in Nailsworth last November yet the purchaser is whats apping every few hours to say their lawyer is waiting to hear from mine. What are the post completion sale legalities now that I have sold?

I am in the process of mortgaging my home in Nailsworth, does my lawyer need to be on the Kent Reliance Solicitor panel?

In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel, but Kent Reliance would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same transaction.

I'm the sole beneficiary of my late grandmother’s will and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Nailsworth. The Nailsworth property was put into my name in September. I want to move. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership may be treated the same way as if I'd bought the property in September. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook instructs conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you could be impacted by that. How sensible a view lenders take of it, depend on the lender as this clause is principally there to identify subsales or the flipping of property.

We expect to receive a OIP from Skipton this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Aldermore, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Aldermore conveyancing panel.
