We are due to move house in September. Will my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the completion day. Incidentally, can you suggest a removal company in Silsoe. Conveyancing solicitor was chosen prior to coming across this website.

I am expecting a DIP from Leeds Building Society 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 Leeds Building Society recommend any Silsoe solicitors on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?

You will need to appoint Silsoe solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Leeds Building Society through the process.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Skipton. I assume I don't need a Silsoe conveyancer on the Skipton panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your Skipton mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Skipton mortgage from the register. Skipton, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Skipton has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Skipton has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Skipton mortgage has been paid off.

Will my solicitor be making enquiries regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Silsoe.

Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers dealing with homes in Silsoe. There are those who acquire a house in Silsoe, completely aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or dispose of the premises. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a house purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Solicitors are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a numerous checks that may be initiated by the buyer or by their lawyers which will give them a better understanding of the risks in Silsoe. The standard information sent to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) incorporates a usual question of the vendor to discover whether the property has historically flooded. In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not revealed by the seller, then a buyer may commence a legal claim for losses stemming from an misleading reply. A buyer’s solicitors will also order an enviro report. This should higlight if there is any known flood risk. If so, additional inquiries will need to be initiated.

The deeds to our house are lost. The lawyers who dealt with the conveyancing in Silsoe 10 years ago no longer exist. Will I be able to sell the house?

In today’s world there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your conveyancer should know precisely where to look for all the suitable paperwork so you can purchase or dispose of your house without a hitch. Where duplicates are not available, your solicitor can put in place insurance or indemnities against possible claims on your premises.

How does conveyancing in Silsoe differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Silsoe approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because new home sellers in Silsoe usually acquire 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 used to new build conveyancing in Silsoe or who has acted in the same development.

I am planning to acquire a flat and require a conveyancing solicitor in Silsoe who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a firm?
