As someone not used to conveyancing in Sowerby Bridge what’s the number one tip you can impart for the ownership transfer in Sowerby Bridge

Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Sowerby Bridge and elsewhere in England and Wales is an adversarial experience. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there is an abundance of room for friction between you and other parties involved in the legal transfer of property. For example, the vendor, property agent and on occasion your lender. Selecting a law firm for your conveyancing in Sowerby Bridge is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE party in the process whose role it is to look after your best interests and to protect you.

Every so often a third party with a vested interest will try and sway you that it is in your interests to do things their way. As an example, the property agent may claim to be helping by claiming that your solicitor is slow. Or your mortgage broker may tell you to do something that is contrary to your solicitors guidance. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the conveyancing process.

My grandfather passed away six months ago and as sole heir and executor I was left the property in Sowerby Bridge. The house had a relatively small loan remaining of approximately £4500. I want to have the title changed into my name whilst I re-mortgage to Barclays, pay off the mortgage. Is this allowed?

Given you intend to re-mortgage then Barclays will require that you use a conveyancer on the Barclays conveyancing panel. Here is link to the Land Registry online guidance around what to do when a property owner dies. This will help you to understand the registration process behind changing the details re the registered title. in your case it would appear that you are effectively purchasing the property from the estate. Your Barclays conveyancing panel solicitor pays the new mortgage money into the estate, the estate pays off the old mortgage, the charge is released and you become the owner and the Barclays mortgage is registered as a charge at the Land Registry.

I moved into my house on 13 January and the transaction details are still not registered. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Sowerby Bridge advises it should be concluded in a couple of weeks. Are transfers in Sowerby Bridge uniquely lengthy to register?

As far as conveyancing in Sowerby Bridge is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust according to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry communicate with any other parties.

Is there a reason that Sowerby Bridge conveyancing fees are more expensive for leasehold and freehold properties?

When buying a leasehold property there is more work involved purely due to the fact that usually there are further parties involved in the form of the freeholder and/or Management Agents. As part of a lawyers enquiries they will check that all ground rent and service charges are paid up to date amongst other general leasehold matters. For this reason, the Sellers lawyers usually have to refer to the freeholder or Managing Agent for their replies to our questions. This may be time consuming and beyond the lawyers control
