Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Rossendale

My partner and I are approaching an exchange on a property in Rossendale and my mum and dad have transferred the 10% deposit to my property lawyer. I am now told that as the deposit has been received from someone other than me my conveyancing practitioner needs to disclose this to my bank. I am advised that, in also acting for the bank he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is not just from me. I informed the bank concerning my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really appropriate for this now to hold matters up?

Your property lawyer is duty bound to check with the bank to make sure that they understand that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. The solicitor can only disclose this to your mortgage company if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

Will my conveyancing lawyers need to check that the building insurance when buying a house in Rossendale. My lender is Accord Mortgages

Accord Mortgages have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook. As of 7/5/2024, the requirements read as follows :

I am downsizing from our home in Rossendale and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. Any local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used a factory type conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Rossendale. Having lived in Rossendale for three years we know of no issue. Do we contact our local Authority to get confirmation that there is no issue.

It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)

Just acquired a terraced house in Rossendale , how long will it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my ownership? My Rossendale conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to check the registration is concluded.

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Rossendale registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry need to notify any third parties. As of today in the region of 80% of submission are fully addressed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be longer delays. Historically registration is effected once the new owner has moved in to the property thus registration formalities is not always primary concern yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer can speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in last month in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Rossendale is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Rossendale are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Rossendale you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Rossendale may determine 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 property.

My step-father has recommend that I appoint his lawyers for conveyancing in Rossendale. Do I follow his guidance?

Much as we are happy to recommend a Rossendale conveyancing lawyer the best way to find a conveyancing solicitor is to seek recommendations from friends or family who have previously instructed the conveyancer that you are contemplating using.
