Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Saxilby

My partner and I are planning to purchase a property in Saxilby and have appointed a Saxilby conveyancing practice. Within the past 48 hours our lawyer has sent a preliminary report and documents to look through in anticipation of exchanging contracts shortly. Platform Home Loans Ltd have this evening contacted us to inform me that they have now hit a problem as our Saxilby conveyancer is not on their approved list of lawyers. What do we do from here?

When purchasing a property with mortgage finance it is conventional for the purchasers' lawyers to also represent the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your solicitor should contact your bank and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You don't have to instruct a firm on the lender’s conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Saxilby lawyers, in which case it will likely add costs, and it may delay matters as you have another set of people involved.

The vendors of the home we are hoping to buy have appointed a conveyancing practitioner in Saxilby who has recommended a lock out agreement with a down payment two thousand pounds. Are such arrangements recommended for Saxilby conveyancing transactions?

Lock out agreements are contracts between a property vendor and prospective buyer granting the buyer exclusive rights to purchase the property within an agreed time frame. For all intents and purposes, a lock out is a document specifying that you will receive a contract at a later date which is the contract for the actual sale. It tends to be utilised for buyer protection though in many situations, the owner may enjoy an upside from such agreements as well. There are various positives and negatives to having an agreement but you should to check with your solicitor but note that it may result in incurring more in conveyancing fees. For this these agreements are avoided in relation to conveyancing in Saxilby.

The Saxilby conveyancing solicitors that just started acting on my purchase in Saxilby have without warning closed. I only went with them because I had to have a firm on the Co-operative conveyancing panel and my preferred Saxilby lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take one hundred and fifty pounds for searches. What are my options?

If you have an estate agent involved then inform them straight away so that they advise the vendors that there may be a slight delay due to reasons beyond your control. Hopefully they will be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the Co-operative conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new lawyers should be in a position to help.

My conveyancer has informed me that lack of right of way insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Saxilby conveyancing?

The right level of lack of right of way indemnity insurance should be dictated by who your lender. It would differ for example between Yorkshire Building Society and The Mortgage Works. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.

I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Aldermore. Is it usual for Aldermore to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Saxilby is approved on their conveyancing panel? Aldermore have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Aldermore to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

Our offer on a detached house in Saxilby has been agreed to, the owners do however have a dependent purchase. The vendors have put an offer on a property, but it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other apartments booked. I have instructed a local conveyancing solicitor in Saxilby. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with Virgin Money going?

It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Saxilby conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you must ensure that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. As to the subsequent stages this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your transaction, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market some purchasers would apply for a home loan with Virgin Money and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their conveyancer to move forward with searches.

I have been told that property searches are the primary cause of hinderance in Saxilby house deals. Is there any truth in this?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released conclusions of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature within the common causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Local searches are unlikely to be the root cause of delay in conveyancing in Saxilby.

We're novice buyers - had an offer accepted, but the estate agent informed us that the vendor will only proceed if we use the agent's preferred lawyers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a high street solicitor who is accustomed to conveyancing in Saxilby

It is unlikely the vendors are driving this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated purchaser is not the way to achieve this. Try to communicate with the sellers directly and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you are going to appoint your own,trusted Saxilby conveyancing solicitors - as opposed tothe ones that will provide their estate agent a commission or meet his conveyancing thresholds demanded by head office.
