Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Tarporley

My fiance and I are planning to buy a home in Tarporley and have instructed a Tarporley conveyancing firm. Within the last couple of days our lawyer has forwarded the sale agreement to be signed with a detailed report with a view to exchanging next week. Halifax have this evening contacted us to advise us that they have now hit a problem as our Tarporley conveyancer is not on their approved list of lawyers. Please explain?

When purchasing a property with mortgage finance it is normal for the purchasers' solicitors to also act for the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a law firm has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the law firm to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the firm has to satisfy and indeed some lenders now require their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your property lawyer should contact your bank and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You don't have to instruct a firm on the bank's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Tarporley lawyers, in which case it will likely add costs, and it may delay matters as you have another set of people involved.

As someone with no idea as to conveyancing in Tarporley what is the number one tip you can impart concerning the legal transfer of property in Tarporley

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Tarporley or throughout Cheshire is often a confrontational process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is lots of opportunity for conflict between you and other parties involved in the ownership transfer. E.g., the seller, selling agent and sometimes the bank. Choosing a lawyer for your conveyancing in Tarporley is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE party in the process whose responsibility is to act in your legal interests and to protect you.

On occasion a potential adversary may attempt to sway you that it is in your interests to do things their way. For instance, the estate agent may claim to be helping by suggesting your solicitor is dragging his heels. Or your mortgage broker may tell you to do something that is against your solicitors recommendation. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.

My partner and I have organised the release of further funds on our mortgage from UBS as we intend to conduct a loft conversion to our house in Tarporley. Are we obliged to appoint a high street Tarporley solicitor on the UBS conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?

UBS don't usually instruct firms on their approved list of lawyers 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 UBS conveyancing panel.

I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by RBS. Is it usual for RBS to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Tarporley is approved on their conveyancing panel? RBS have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for RBS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the RBS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I've digested plenty of house buying guides, I note that they all recommend that you should get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Tarporley solicitor - who is on the Santander conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?

Santander will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Santander will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your conveyancer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Tarporley postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Santander, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Tarporley.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Tarporley I like with a park and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Tarporley for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?

If you require a mortgage that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.

My father-in-law has recommend that I appoint his lawyers for conveyancing in Tarporley. Should I choose my own property lawyer?

No doubt the ideal way to choose a conveyancing solicitor is to get feedback from friends or family who have previously instructed the conveyancer you're are thinking of instructing.

My wife and I have chosen a Tarporley conveyancing solicitor for our home move (FTB’s) and have spotted in the engagement letter that they are not regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. Need I be worried or is that standard with solicitor?

We can't see why they should be. Most solicitor don't lend money. They should be regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, who set strict laws in relation to monies sitting in their bank.
