Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Stony Stratford

Can you help? My Stony Stratford conveyancer is advising me that he has toapply for Stony Stratford conveyancing searches resulting from the fact thatthe firm are on the Nat Westapproved lawyer panel. Is this really necessary?

You have limited options available to you. As you are obtaining a mortgage with a mortgage company your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your property lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook conditions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Stony Stratford conveyancing searches.

It is 10 years ago since I acquired my home in Stony Stratford. Conveyancing solicitors have just been instructed on the sale but I am unable to track down the deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?

You need not be too concerned. Firstly there is a chance that the deeds will be retained by the lender or they may be in the possession of the solicitor who acted in the purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the land will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors procuring current official copies of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Stony Stratford relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.

We're in Stony Stratford, FTBs buying with a mortgage (lender is Kent Reliance , and our lawyer is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?

The fact that your lawyer is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no conveyancing practitioner should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.

My wife and I are buying a house in Stony Stratford. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a solicitor? On the day of competition we have to put our life savings into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our deposit?

Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.

Is it the case that all Stony Stratford CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Kent Reliance conveyancing list of approved solicitors?

It is true that some banks and building societies now make use of CQS as the starting point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. CQS membership however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for firms wishing to join their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.

Planning on purchasing a house in Stony Stratford. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Stony Stratford property lawyer is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel.

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one close by in Stony Stratford I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Stony Stratford in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.

My step-father has encouraged me to appoint his conveyancing solicitors in Stony Stratford. Should I use them?

No doubt the ideal way to select a conveyancing lawyer is to get referrals from friends or family who have previously instructed the conveyancer that you are considering.
