I can't travel far from Stalybridge. Please explain the reason why all Stalybridge conveyancing practitioners are not on all bank panels?
Lenders ordinarily impose restrictions on either the nature or the number of conveyancing practices on their approved list of lawyers. Typical examples of such restriction(s) being that the firm is required to have two or more partners. As well as restricting the type of firm, some have decided to reduce the number of conveyancers they use to represent them. It is worth noting that building societies have no liability for the standard of service given by any Stalybridge solicitor on their approved list. Property fraud was the main trigger for the rationalisation of solicitor panels from 2008 notwithstanding that there are opposing assessments concerning whether solicitors sat at the center of that fraud. Statistics from HMLR reveal that thousands of law organisations only transact a couple of conveyances a year. Those advocating conveyancing panel pruning ask why law firms should have any entitlement to remain on a bank panel when it is apparent that conveyancing is not their primary expertise?
I am selling our house in Stalybridge and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. A local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed a web based conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Stalybridge. Having lived in Stalybridge for three years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to seek confirmation need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. What do they say? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)
I have justfound out that Stirling Law have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Stalybridge for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 12 months ago. How can I be sure that my home is not still registered in the name of the previous owner?
The easiest method to see if the property is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Stalybridge conveyancing specialists.
Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Stalybridge. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.

Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. Please supply a car parking plan.

We are 3 weeks into a leasehold purchase having been directed to a firm by the high street agent to execute conveyancing in Stalybridge. I am not happy. Could you help me find new conveyancers?
They would have to be very poor to suggest changing them. Has the loan offer been sent? In the event that it has you will need to make them aware of the new conveyancer and ensure the mortgage documents are issued to the new lawyers. Your new solicitor ideally should be on the banks approved list to avoid added fees and delays. That should be your starting point. The search tool can help you find a lender approved solicitor for your conveyancing in Stalybridge
How does one remove a departed person's details from the title register for a house in Stalybridge?
Where a Stalybridge property is jointly owned and one of the proprietors dies, the name will not immediately be removed from the title deeds. It is not necessary to remove their name as when it comes to a disposal you would simply need to supply proof as to the reason the co owner is missing from the conveyance, such as a grant of probate.
With the aim of making things more straight forward for the sale of the property you can apply to have the deceased name removed from the title by applying to HM Land Registry with proof of the death. There is no land registry fee payable.
