We are a couple about to sign contracts for a garden flat in Royton. We encountered a snag. The mortgage offer with Skipton Building Society runs out on 13/6/2024 but the sellers are suggesting a completion date of 17/6/2024. Is it possible to extend the mortgage expiry date?

My father advised me that in buying a property in Royton there may be various restrictions preventing external changes to the property. Is this right?

We previously selected conveyancers locally in Royton on the Santander solicitor panel. They have just billed me a further amount for handling the Santander mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Santander?

Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your lawyer is entitled to charge a fee for this. This fee is not dictated by Santander but by your Royton solicitor. Plenty of firms on the Santander panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.

I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in February 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, RBS are being a right pain. The Royton solicitor who is on the RBS conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but RBS are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do RBS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that RBS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why RBS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

Will our conveyancer be raising enquiries concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Royton.

Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors dealing with homes in Royton. Plenty of people will buy a property in Royton, completely aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical damage, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or dispose of the property. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Conveyancers are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, however there are a number of checks that can be undertaken by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which can give them a better understanding of the risks in Royton. The standard property information forms given to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) incorporates a usual inquiry of the vendor to find out whether the property has suffered from flooding. In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the vendor, then a buyer could issue a claim for damages as a result of such an misleading reply. The buyer’s lawyers will also conduct an environmental report. This should indicate whether there is any known flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations should be conducted.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Royton is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Royton are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Royton you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Royton may ascertain 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.

Do I have to pop into the offices of the bank conveyancing panel solicitor to execute the mortgage deed? If so, I will choose one who does conveyancing in Royton so that I can attend their offices if necessary.

Whereas this was necessary twenty years ago, most lenders no longer require their conveyancing panel solicitor to witness the borrowers signature. You will still be obliged to provide ID Documents and there are still distinct advantages to using a local solicitor, in your case a conveyancing solicitor in Royton.
