Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Ripley

I am hoping to receive a mortgage with Santander. I intend to use a Licensed Conveyancer in Ripley. Does the Santander Solicitor panel exclude Licensed Conveyancers?

The Santander conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, associated to the Council or Mortgage Lenders or BSA, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.

When does exchange of contracts happen for domestic conveyancing in Ripley and am I required to be at the lawyers office?

If you are round the corner to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Ripley you are welcome to attend to sign the paperwork. However, the firms we recommend offer countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide as equally comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The executing of the contract is not the critical part. Signing on the dotted line is necessary for the solicitor to officially exchange at the appropriate time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Ripley)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

What happens if my lawyer’s firm is removed from the Santander Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Ripley?

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.

I'm buying a new build house in Ripley with the aid of help to buy. The developers would not budge the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent advised me not reveal to my solicitor about the extras as it could impact my loan with the lender. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Ripley is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Ripley are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Ripley you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Ripley 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 premises.
