Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Ramsbottom

Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my solicitor in Ramsbottom is not identified on my mortgage company's solicitor panel that there is a problem with the quality of her conveyancing?

It would not be wise to jump to that conclusion. There are plenty of plausible explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator revealed that over three quarters of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The top 5 reasons are as follows: (1) lack of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Where you are concerned you should contact the Ramsbottom conveyancing firm and enquire why they are no longer on the approved list for your lender.

How does conveyancing in Ramsbottom differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Ramsbottom contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because new home sellers in Ramsbottom typically purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Ramsbottom or who has acted in the same development.

Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Ramsbottom may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection.

You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
