I am hoping to move into my new home in Rusholme next Friday. My conveyancing practitioner now wants me to supply her with evidence of content and building insurance for the property as he says that he has to check this in his capacity as lawyer for the bank. What risks does the mortgage company expect the insurance to cover?
Any lawyer on acting for mortgage companies would need to check that the following risks are covered fire; lightning; aircraft; explosion; earthquake; storm; flood; escape of water or oil; riot; malicious damage; theft or attempted theft; falling trees and branches and aerials; subsidence; heave;landslip;collision;accidental damage to underground services;professional fees, demolition and site clearance costs; and public liability to anyone else. There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s Part 2 requirements. These obligations are not unique to conveyancing in Rusholme.
We note that you have a post code search directory listing solicitors on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Do firms pay you a commission if I appoint them for our conveyancing in Rusholme?
We are a listing service only for law firms wishing to communicate if they are on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel or other lender panels. We do not charge referral fees to any conveyancer that you subsequently appoint for your conveyancing in Rusholme.
Me and my partner are buying a house in Rusholme. It might be a silly question but how we can trust a solicitor? At some point we have to deposit funds into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our monies?
Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.
A colleague pointed out to me me that in purchasing a property in Rusholme there may be a number of restrictions limiting what one can do in terms of external alterations to a property. Is this right?
We are aware of anumerous of properties in Rusholme which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to execute external alterations. Part of the conveyancing in Rusholme should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.
I have paid off my mortgage with UBS. I assume I don't need a Rusholme conveyancer on the UBS panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your UBS mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the UBS mortgage from the register. UBS, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where UBS has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- UBS has instructed the Land Registry to do so
I have been pointed in your direction by numerous selling agents in Rusholme to locate a property lawyer on your site. Is there a financial incentive for Estate Agents to recommend your lawyers ahead of alternative conveyancing organisations?
We don’t give any financial incentive for sending work in our direction. We thought it would be too underhand a fee because members of the public would think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
