Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Urmston

The Urmston conveyancing firm handling our Urmston conveyancing has uncovered an inconsistency between the information in the home valuation report and what is in the title deeds. My solicitor has advised that he must check that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my lawyer’s stance legitimate?

Your lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.

four months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Urmston completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

How does conveyancing in Urmston differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Urmston contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because new home sellers in Urmston typically purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Urmston or who has acted in the same development.

My husband and I are new to the buying process - agreed a price, but the estate agent informed us that the owners will only go ahead if we appoint the agent's preferred solicitors as they need an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a local conveyancer who is accustomed to conveyancing in Urmston

It is unlikely the vendors are driving this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a genuine purchaser is not the way to achieve this. Speak to the owners direct and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you intend to instruct your preferred Urmston conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthose that will provide the negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or achieve conveyancing thresholds pre-set by senior management.

New build sellers have recommended to me a lawyer and I've obtained a quote from them. They are almost two hundred pounds cheaper than my local Urmston solicitor. Should I use them?

Developers often have panels of property lawyers who are quick and who know the developer’s contract and conveyancing practitioner. Plenty of developers offer an incentive to use their approved property lawyer for this reason, any increased cost can be avoided and a developer won't put forward a conveyancing warehouse and run the risk of having the conveyancing stall when they demand an exchange inside a month. A counter-argument for not agreeing to use the suggested lawyer is that they may be hesitant to 'push' your interests for fear of alienating the developer. If you worry that this may be the situation you should remain with your local Urmston conveyancing practitioner.
