We are purchasing a property and require a conveyancing solicitor in Oldham who is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. Can you recommend a local solicitor?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Aldermore . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Oldham.
We are downsizing from our property in Oldham and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. Any local lawyer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using a web based conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Oldham. Having lived in Oldham for many years we know of no issue. Should we contact our local Authority to get clarification need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)
I have justbecome aware that Wolstenholmes have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Oldham for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 18 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is in my name in the name of the previous owner?
The easiest method to see if the property is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Oldham conveyancing specialists.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Oldham is the location of the property. Can you offer any advice?
Flying freeholds in Oldham are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Oldham you must be sure that your lawyer goes 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 Oldham 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.
I'm converting the mortgage on my existing property to a buy to let loan with Bank of Scotland and intend to use the remaining equity as a down payment on another house. The area we are interested in is Oldham. Will your lawyers be able to act for the two lenders and tie in the transactions?
Make use of our search tool on this page to check that the solicitors are on the appropriate lender panels. Assuming that they are the lawyer should be able to connect the two deals but you should talk with you lawyer and specify your desired outcome and needs.
I need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor for residential conveyancing in Oldham. I happened to chance upon a web site which looks to be the perfect offering If it is possible to get all formalities done via phone that would be ideal. Should I be concerned? What are the potential pitfalls?
As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
