My fiancee and I are acquiring our first house. The property lawyer has calledto ask if we want to purchase supplemental conveyancing searches. We are really unsure what's relevant for conveyancing in Poynton
The range of Poynton conveyancing searches depends primarily on the premises, the location, the likelihood of any of these risks, your familiarity of the area and risks, your general approach to risk. What matters is that you properly understand what information the searches could provide. Then you can make a decision if you consider that you need that search. Where you are uncertain, ask your solicitor to provide guidance.
Forgive me if this question is silly but I am new to the house moving as FTB of a ground floor flat in Poynton. Do I pick up the keys to the premises on the completion date from my solicitor? If so, I will use a local conveyancing solicitor in Poynton?
On the day of completion you do not need to attend the conveyancers office in Poynton. Your solicitors will electronically transfer the purchase money to the seller's conveyancers, and once they have received this, you should be able to pick up the keys from the property Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen early afternoon.
We are planning to move home in June. Should my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the day of completion. On a separate note, can you recommend a removal company in Poynton. Conveyancing solicitor was organised before I stumbled across your page.
On the afternoon of completion you can collect the house keys from your selling agent but this should only occur after the sellers lawyers inform the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be passed over. Subsequently you can tell the removal company that you are ready to move in. We are not in a position to suggest a specific removal organisation but can assist you in locating a conveyancing in Poynton or a lawyer that specialises in conveyancing in Poynton.
I am the sole recipient of my late father’s will and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in Poynton. The Poynton property was put into my name in March. I want to move. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership will be considered the same way as though I had purchased the house in March. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook requires conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be impacted by that. Some lenders would take a practical view as this requirement is primarily there to pick up on subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.
My colleague suggested that where I am purchasing in Poynton I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?
A search of this type is occasionally quoted for as part of the standard Poynton conveyancing searches. It is a large document of about 40 pages, listing and detailing significant information about Poynton around the property and the people living there. It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime statistics, Local Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data concerning Poynton.
I have a semi-detached Edwardian house in Poynton. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Leeds Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Poynton and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also enquire as to the situation with your conveyancing practitioner who carried out the work.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my basement apartment in Poynton.Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed but I have recently received a quarterly service charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should pay the invoice as normal as all rents and service payments will be apportionedas part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially
