Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Stockport

At what point can the exchange of contracts occur in domestic conveyancing in Stockport and am I required to attend the lawyers office?

Where you are local to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Stockport you are welcome to come in to sign the paperwork. However, the lender approved solicitors we work with provide countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide as equally detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you electronically. The signing of the property agreement is not the critical part. Signing on the dotted line simply enables the solicitor to exchange contracts at the appropriate time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Stockport)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

My partner and I have organised a further advance on our home loan from Bank of Ireland as we want to conduct renovations to our property in Stockport. Do we need to select a local Stockport solicitor on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel to handle the legals?

Bank of Ireland would not normally appoint a member of their conveyancing panel to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Bank of Ireland list.

It is not clear whether my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have telephoned my Stockport bank branch on a couple of occasions and was reassured it wasn't an issue and they would lend. My Stockport conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend based on their specific requirements. I have no idea who is right.

The property lawyer must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two provisions for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

After what feels like an age I have had an offer on an apartment in Stockport agreed to, the owners do however have a tied purchase. The vendors have put an offer on somewhere, however it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other apartments booked. I have selected a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Stockport. What should be my next step? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Coventry BS?

It is normal to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Stockport conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you must check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. As to the subsequent stages this very much dictated by the circumstances of your transaction, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. During a hot market some purchasers would apply for the mortgage with Coventry BS and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their conveyancing practitioner to proceed with the conveyancing in Stockport.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Stockport is where the house is located. Can you offer any assistance?

Flying freeholds in Stockport are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Stockport you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Stockport may decide 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 husband and I are first time buyers - agreed a price, yet the agent has warned us that the owners will only go ahead if we instruct their recommended solicitors as they need a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street conveyancer used to conveyancing in Stockport

It is unlikely the owners are driving this. If they want ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated buyer is going to damage their objectives. Speak to the owners direct and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you intend to appoint your own,trusted Stockport conveyancing solicitors - as opposed tothose that will earn their estate agent a introducer fee or meet his conveyancing figures pre-set by corporate headquarters.

Is it the case that all Stockport solicitors on every lender conveyancing panel?
