Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Sale

Do lenders provide you with an approved list of Sale conveyancing solicitors? How do you know who is on the Barclays conveyancing panel?

Sale conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Barclays conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Barclays directly.

My husband and I decided to purchase a newbuild apartment in Sale with a residential mortgage from Platform Home Loans Ltd.We would like to retain our Sale conveyancing practitioner but Platform Home Loans Ltd informed us he's not listed on their approved list of firms. It seems we have little choice but to instruct a Platform Home Loans Ltd panel lawyer or retain our high street solicitor and pay for a Platform Home Loans Ltd panel lawyer to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?

No, not really. The loan issued to you contains various provisions, one of which will be that conveyancers must be on the Platform Home Loans Ltd approved list. Until recently, most mortgage companies had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Platform Home Loans Ltd

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Sale prior to retaining solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. Our surveyor has said that some banks tend not issue a mortgage on such a property.

I am 18 days into a leasehold purchase having been directed to a firm by the selling agent to handle our conveyancing in Sale. I am am starting to be disappointed with the quality of service. Could you help me find new conveyancers?

They would have to be really poor to suggest changing them. Has your loan offer been sent? If so you will need to make them aware of the new contact details and ensure the loan are issued to the new lawyers. The solicitor ideally should be on the lenders approved list to avoid supplemental fees and delays. So that should be your starting point.

What makes a Sale lease unacceptable for security purposes?

Leasehold conveyancing in Sale is not unique. Most leases are individual and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain provisions are erroneous. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:

    Maintenance charge proportions which don’t add up to the correct percentage A duty to insure the building

A defective lease will likely cause problems when trying to sell a property primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Birmingham Midshires, Virgin Money, and Britannia all have express conveyancing instructions when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is problematic they may refuse to provide security, forcing the buyer to withdraw.

Leasehold Conveyancing in Sale - Sample of Questions you should ask Prior to Purchasing

    Is anyone aware of any major works in the planning that will increase the maintenance costs? Is the freehold reversion owned jointly by the tenants? How much is the maintenance charge and ground rent on the property?
