Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Salford

Is it necessary during the course of the conveyancing process to pop into the offices of the solicitor to sign the legal charge? If so, I will appoint a lawyer who conducts conveyancing in Salford so that I can attend their offices if required.

Whereas this was necessary ten years ago, the vast majority lenders no longer require their conveyancing panel lawyer to witness the borrowers signature. You will still be obliged to provide ID documents and there are still manifest benefits to using a local practitioner, in your case a conveyancing solicitor in Salford.

I can see plenty of here about conveyancing in Salford but what is your top tip for appointing the right conveyancer in Salford

It would be unwise to be swayed by the lowest Salford conveyancing fees. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of time.

My conveyancer has informed me that flying freehold insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Salford?

The right level of flying freehold indemnity insurance depends on your lender. It would differ for example between National Westminster Bank and Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to members of the public take out such insurances.

I am expecting a OIP from Co-operative this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Co-operative recommend any Salford solicitors on the Co-operative conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Salford solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Co-operative through the process.

How does conveyancing in Salford differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Salford contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because house builders in Salford tend to purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Salford or who has acted in the same development.

I opted to have a survey done on a house in Salford ahead of instructing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. The surveyor advised that some lenders may refuse to issue a mortgage on this type of premises.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Santander has different requirements from Nationwide. If you contact us we can check via the appropriate lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Salford. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Salford to see if the conveyancing will be more expensive.

My husband and I are FTB’s - agreed a price, but the selling agent informed us that the vendor will only move forward if we instruct the agent's recommended lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local solicitor who is familiar with conveyancing in Salford

It is improbable the sellers are behind this. If they want ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Speak to the vendors direct and make sure they understand (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you will continue to use your preferred Salford conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will provide their negotiator at the agency a kickback or achieve conveyancing targets pre-set by corporate headquarters.

Our bank agreed in principle to grant us a mortgage. We appointed a reputable conveyancer in Salford yesterday. Today, our broker phoned to advise us that the lender said that we cannot use our solicitor as they aren't on their 'approved list'. As novices, we did not have a clue that the lender had a say Is this permitted?

You can actually select any lawyer you want to use for your conveyancing in Salford however if they are not on the your bank's panel you would have to fork out additional cost so your lender can retain their own lawyers. sometimes it is possible your preferred conveyancing firm to get added to the lender panel. Do make the most of internet search facilities such as lenderpanel.com to find a conveyancing solcitor in Salford on the mortgage company panel. You can go into your local bank branch in Salford. They will know some good conveyancing solicitors in Salford on the approved list.
