Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Sale

I am getting a mortgage with Nat West. My intention is to retain the legal services of a Licensed Conveyancer in Sale. Does the Nat West Conveyancing panel exclude Licensed Conveyancers?

The Nat West conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, associated to the Council or Mortgage Lenders or BSA, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Sale? What am I being asked for?

Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to check the identification documents of the potential client they are dealing with before they can accept their conveyancing instruction. The Terms of Engagement that you are required to sign will no doubt reaffirm this. Your lender will also require certain documents to be viewed. If you are unwilling to supply identification documents, your conveyancer would not be able to act for you.

Will our lawyer be making enquiries about flooding as part of the conveyancing in Sale.

Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers dealing with homes in Sale. There are those who purchase a house in Sale, completely aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or dispose of the property. Steps can be carried out during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the purchaser.

Lawyers are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, however there are a numerous checks that may be initiated by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which should figure out the risks in Sale. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms given to a buyer’s lawyer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) incorporates a standard inquiry of the seller to discover whether the property has ever been flooded. If flooding has previously occurred which is not revealed by the owner, then a purchaser could commence a legal claim for losses stemming from an misleading answer. The buyer’s solicitors may also carry out an environmental report. This will indicate whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further investigations should be carried out.

I was pointed in your direction by a few selling agents in Sale to get a quote from a property lawyer on your site. What’s the financial advantage for Estate Agents to promote your lawyers over alternative conveyancing organisations?

We refuse to give any referral fee for sending work our way. We thought it would be too underhand a fee because members of the public would think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

My brother has suggested that I appoint his conveyancers in Sale. Should I choose my own property lawyer?

No doubt the best way to select a conveyancing solicitor is to seek recommendations from friends or relatives who have used the solicitor that you are contemplating using.

I am a negotiator for a long established estate agency in Sale where we see a few leasehold sales put at risk as a result of short leases. I have received contradictory information from local Sale conveyancing solicitors. Please can you shed some light as to whether the seller of a flat can instigate the lease extension formalities for the purchaser on completion of the sale?

As long as the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the proposed purchaser need not have to wait 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed before, or simultaneously with completion of the sale.

Alternatively, it may be possible to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.
