My conveyancer has identified a a legal deficiency with the lease for the flat we are purchasing in Rossendale. The seller’s lawyers have offered title insurance as a solution. We are content with insurance and will cover the costs. Our lawyer has advised that he must be satisfied that the mortgage company is content with this solution. Are we the client or is the lender?
Even though you have a mortgage offer from the lender does not mean to say that the property will meet their conditions for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. You and the bank are the client. These conveyancing instructions have to be complied with.

What happens if my lawyer’s firm is expelled from the Nationwide Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Rossendale?
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.

We previously appointed solicitors based in Rossendale on the Aldermore solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a further charge for the legal aspects of the Aldermore mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Aldermore?
Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your conveyancing practitioner may charge a fee for this. This charge is not set by Aldermore but by your Rossendale property lawyer. Plenty of firms on the Aldermore panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but some firms include it on their overall fee.
How can we know in advance if a Rossendale conveyancing solicitor on the Clydesdale panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Rossendale obtaining recommendations is a sensible start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always advise that you speak with the lawyer conducting your transaction.
How does conveyancing in Rossendale differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Rossendale come to us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Rossendale usually purchase the real estate, 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 property lawyers 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 Rossendale or who has acted in the same development.
