What happens if my lawyer’s firm is suspended from the UBS Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in New Barnet?
First, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.
I'm the single recipient of my late mum's estate and I have everything in my name now, including the house in New Barnet. The New Barnet property was put into my name in January. I want to move. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship could be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the property in January. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook mandates solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be impacted by that. How practical a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the bank as this requirement is chiefly there to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of properties.
Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Virgin Money. New Barnet conveyancing solicitors were instructed. How long does it take for Virgin Money to issue the offer to the conveyancer?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have Virgin Money completed the valuation? Have you informed Virgin Money as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
My sealed bid on a property in New Barnet has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The owners have put an offer on on an apartment, but it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other flats in the pipeline. I have instructed a local conveyancing solicitor in New Barnet. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Barclays going?
It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, New Barnet conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you must check that your solicitor is on the Barclays approved list. Concerning the next steps this very much depends on the specifics of your transaction, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many purchasers will apply for the mortgage with Barclays and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their lawyer to press on with searches.
