Recently asked questions about conveyancing in North Ferriby

Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from North Ferriby. What is the rationale as to why all North Ferriby solicitors are not on all lender panels?

Mortgage companies highlight the fact that solicitor-led fraud is thought to be responsible for millions of pounds of fraud annually.The elimination of law firms off of lender panels started with the rise in mortgage fraud, which prompted a thematic review by the Financial Services Authority in 2011. Its conclusions included recommendations for lending institutions to review their conveyancing panels, which kicked off a major policy change in the sector. This led to banks and building societies culling less reputable firms off their books of approved conveyancers .

It is is a decade since I bought my house in North Ferriby. Conveyancing solicitors have now been instructed on the sale but I am unable to find my deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?

You need not be too concerned. Firstly the deeds may be with the mortgage company or they could stored with the solicitor who acted in your purchase. Secondly the chances are that the land will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors acquiring current official copies of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in North Ferriby involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.

I'm the sole recipient of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in North Ferriby. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in April. I plan to dispose of the property. I understand that there is a CML six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship could be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the property in April. Do I have to wait 6 months 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." Technically you may be caught by that. Some mortgage companies would take a practical view as this clause is primarily there to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

My fiancee and I are at the point of viewing houses in North Ferriby and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it best to have a solicitor on ‘stand by’? I will be getting a home loan with Kent Reliance.

It would be advisable to commence your search sooner rather than later. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their contact information on to the estate agent. As you are getting a mortgage with Kent Reliance, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel.

It is unclear whether my bank requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my North Ferriby building society branch on various occasions and was told it wasn't a problem and they will lend. My North Ferriby conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they will not lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I have no idea who is right.

As long as the conveyancing practitioner is on the bank panel, they must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook provisions for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
