Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Pocklington

I was advised today by my financial adviser that my Pocklington property lawyer is not on the lender Solicitor panel. How can I be sure if this is correct?

The first thing you need to do is to call your Pocklington lawyer directly. You lawyer should notify you what has happened. Where they are not on the panel they may be able to suggest a Pocklington conveyancing practice that is on the approved list of lawyers for your bank.

We're in Pocklington, First time buyers purchasing with a mortgage (lender is Bank of Ireland , and our solicitor is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?

The fact that your lawyer is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no conveyancing practitioner should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.

I am assisting my aunt sell her flat in Pocklington. Will the solicitor commission the energy assessment or it is for me to see to?

After the demise of Home Information Packs, EPC’s was maintained a required component of selling a property. An energy assessment should be to hand before the property is put on the market. This is not something that conveyancers normally organise. If you are instructing a Pocklington conveyancing practitioner they may be willing to arrange energy assessments given their relationships with long established local assessors

Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Yorkshire BS. Pocklington conveyancing practitioners are appointed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Yorkshire BS?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Yorkshire BS conducted the survey? Have you advised Yorkshire BS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

I am purchasing a property in Pocklington. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Clydesdale be concerned?

As you are obtaining a mortgage with Clydesdale your lawyer must check the conveyancing instructions contained in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Clydesdale. The CML Handbook includes minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to Clydesdale where a lease does not satisfy these conditions. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not limited to Pocklington.

I am purchasing my first flat in Pocklington benefiting from help to buy. The developers refused to budge the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The estate agent advised me not to tell my lawyer about the side-deal as it may adversely affect my mortgage with the bank. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

What does commercial conveyancing in Pocklington cover?

Commercial conveyancing in Pocklington covers a wide array of services, supplied by regulated solicitors, relating to business premises. By way of example, this area of conveyancing can cover the sale or purchase of freehold business premises or, more commonly, the assignment of existing leases or the drafting of new leasing arrangements. Commercial conveyancing solicitors can also offer advice on the sale of business assets, commercial loans and the termination of tenancies.

Builders have recommended to me a solicitor and I've sought a quote from them. It's nearly £250 cheaper than my preferred Pocklington conveyancing practitioner. What's the catch?

Housebuilders normally have panels of solicitors who are quick and who know the developer’s contract and lawyer. As many developers offer an incentive to use a preferred conveyancing practitioner for this reason, any increased fees can be avoided and a builder won't recommend a conveyancing factory and run the risk of having the transaction stall when they need an exchange in 28 days. A counter-argument for not agreeing to use the suggested conveyancer is that they may prove unwilling to fight for your interests for fear of upsetting the sellers. If you worry that this may be the situation you should stick with your high street Pocklington property lawyer.
