Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Northwich

I am considering applying for a Virgin Money mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Northwich with 65 per cent loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Virgin Money ?

In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel, but Virgin Money 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.

If you had a top tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Northwich what would it be?

Do not opt for the lowest Northwich conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with HSBC. Northwich conveyancing solicitors have been instructed. How long does it take for HSBC to issue the offer to the property lawyer?

There is no definitive answer here. Have HSBC conducted the valuation? Have you informed HSBC as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the HSBC conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.

I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Northwich off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Lloyds. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?

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 Lloyds, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Lloyds conveyancing panel.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Northwich is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Northwich are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Northwich you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Northwich may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

What does commercial conveyancing in Northwich cover?

I am one month into a freehold purchase having been referred to a firm by the selling agent to handle our conveyancing in Northwich. We are not happy. Can you help me find new solicitors?

They would need to be really bad to suggest replacing them. Has your loan offer been issued? In the event that it has you will need to make them aware of the new contact details and ensure the mortgage documents are issued to the new lawyers. Your new solicitor ideally needs to be on the mortgage company approved list to avoid escalating expenses and delays. So that should be your starting point.
