The property market in Nuthall is hotting up. What can I do to expedite the legal process?
In the event that the seller is applying pressure to sign contracts we would recommend that your lawyer is familiar with the location as they will benefit local contacts and intelligence. It is possible that they may have handled otherproperties in the same street. You would be best advised to use a Nuthall conveyancing firm. In addition, make sure that the conveyancing firm is on the member panel. It is said that 18% of Nuthall conveyancing deals are suspended or derailed after finding out that a purchaser’s conveyancer was not on their banks list of approved solicitors. This can often result in the conveyancing being delayed by almost 21 days. It is claimed that this issue affects approximately one hundred thousand home moves every year. Most Nuthall conveyancing firms can not represent certain mortgage companies so do check at the outset.
Can you clarify what the consequences are if my lawyer’s firm is removed from the Barclays Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Nuthall?
First, this is a very rare occurrence. 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.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up as part of conveyancing in Nuthall?
Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Nuthall.

I opted to have a survey completed on a property in Nuthall prior to retaining solicitors. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. The surveyor has said that some mortgage companies will refuse to give a loan on this type of property.

Are there frequently found defects that you see in leases for Nuthall properties?
Leasehold conveyancing in Nuthall is not unique. Most leases are individual and legal mistakes in the legal wording can result in certain clauses are not included. The following missing provisions could result in a defective lease:
Repairing obligations to or maintain parts of the property A provision for the recovery of money spent for the benefit of another party.
A defective lease can cause issues when trying to sell a property primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Birmingham Midshires, Norwich and Peterborough Building Society, and Barclays Direct all have very detailed requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease does not cover certain provisions they may refuse to provide security, forcing the purchaser to pull out.
