Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Stapleton

Much to our surprise we have been notified by our estate agent that my Stapleton the law firm I have appointed is not on the mortgage company Conveyancing panel. What can I do to be certain whether this is indeed the case?

Your first step should be to contact your Stapleton lawyer directly. It is reasonable to expect your lawyer to inform you of the situation. Where they are not on the panel they may recommend you to a Stapleton conveyancing practice that is on the conveyancing panel for your mortgage company.

What happens if my solicitor is expelled from the Leeds Building Society Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Stapleton?

First, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

There are numerous conveyancing solicitors in Stapleton but how do I know who's good?

It would be unwise to be tempted by the lowest Stapleton conveyancing fees. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in advance.

Do I choose a Licenced Conveyancer or Solicitor for conveyancing in Stapleton?

There are many registered licenced Conveyancers in Stapleton and Solicitor firms in Stapleton who can assist with your conveyancing We would stress that the two are regulated professionals specialising in the legal work in transferring property. Both can deal with associated property related work such as remortgage conveyancing, lease extensions and transfer of equity conveyancing.

We previously appointed solicitors locally in Stapleton on the HSBC solicitor approved list. They have just invoiced me a separate sum for handling the HSBC mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by HSBC?

Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your solicitor is entitled to charge a fee for this. The fee is not set by HSBC but by your Stapleton property lawyer. Some firms on the HSBC panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee but many practices include it on their overall fee.

I'm buying a new build house in Stapleton with a mortgage from Yorkshire Building Society. The developers refused to budge the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative suggested that I not to tell my solicitor about the extras as it will jeopardize my mortgage with Yorkshire Building Society. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Stapleton is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Stapleton are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Stapleton you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Stapleton may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

My parents are encountering difficulties in finding their Stapleton land registry title on the website. They have a vague recollection 50 years ago when they bought the house there were complications concerning Stapleton not being identified on some systems.

Nearly all premises in Stapleton should appear. Have you endevoured to search to just the postcode. Usually it should reveal all the residences within that postcode. Where registered it will show up with a title number. Where they bought fifty years ago it's conceivable it may be unrecorded. The address might still be revealed but with the title number shown 'na'. In this scenario you will need to locate the original title papers which may be with your parent’s lender.
