Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Sedbergh

My wife and I are hoping to buy a 2 bedroom apartment in Sedbergh with a mortgage. We have a Sedbergh conveyancer, however the lender advise he's not on their "panel". It appears that we have no option but to use one of the lender panel solicitors or continue with our Sedbergh property lawyer and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. We feel that this is inequitable; is there anything we can do?

Unfortunately,no. Your mortgage offer is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders 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. A further alternative is for your Sedbergh conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

five months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Sedbergh concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

How does conveyancing in Sedbergh differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Sedbergh contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because builders in Sedbergh tend to purchase the site, 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Sedbergh or who has acted in the same development.

You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

Do use our search tool on this site to check that the lawyers are approved by both mortgage companies. Assuming that they are the lawyer should be able to tie up the two transactions but you should talk with you lawyer and specify your expectations and requirements.

I need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor for freehold conveyancing in Sedbergh. I've stumble across a web site which appears to be the ideal answer If there is a chance to get all formalities done via phone that would be preferable. Do I need to be concerned? What should out be looking out for?
