Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Walderslade

I am buying a house without a mortgage in Walderslade. I have been living for the previous 20 years in Walderslade. Conveyancing searches are expensive. As I know the road and vicinity intimately must I have all the conveyancing searches?

In the absence of a mortgage, then almost all of the Walderslade conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your lawyer will try and sway you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches completed, but he has a professional duty to do this. Do take into account; if you are likely to sell the house in the future, it will be of interest to your future purchaser what the searches reveal. On occasion houses with day to day issues can still reveal adverse search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Walderslade will be able to give you some constructive guidance in this regard.

Is it the case that all Walderslade CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel?

A selection of lenders now use CQS as the starting point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS accreditation however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. Nevertheless,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitors wishing to join their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.

We previously selected solicitors based in Walderslade on the HSBC solicitor approved list. They are now charging me an additional fee for the legal aspects of the HSBC mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by HSBC?

Provided it is contained in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your lawyer is entitled to charge a fee for this. The fee is not set by HSBC but by your Walderslade conveyancer. Some firms on the HSBC panel will quote ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.

My wife and I are spending time looking at apartments in Walderslade and I am now considering a potential offer. Should I already have a lawyer appointed at this stage? I am planning to take a home loan with Nottingham.

You should start obtaining conveyancing quotes from solicitors ASAP. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their details on to the estate agent. Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Nottingham, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Nottingham conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.

I used Arc property Solicitors a few years ago for my conveyancing in Walderslade. Now, I need the documents but the law firm is no longer operating. What do I do?

Do contact the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA) to help locate your conveyancing files. They can be contacted on please contact on 0870 606 2555. Alternatively, you should use their online form to make an enquiry.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one round the corner in Walderslade I like with open areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Walderslade for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

Should you need a mortgage that many years will be an issue. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.

I'm remortgaging my existing house to a BTL loan with TSB and I will use the rest of the raised equity as a down payment on further house. The area we are looking at is Walderslade. Will your conveyancers be able to act for the two mortgage companies and tie in the transactions?

Make use of our comparison tool on this site to ensure that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panels. Assuming that they are your solicitor should be able to connect the two conveyancing matters but you should have a chat with you conveyancer and make clear your desired outcome and requirements.

Much to my surprise my solicitor in Walderslade has requested from me personal identification documents stating that this is part of his retainer as a solicitor on the mortgage company Solicitor panel. Can this be correct?

Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules require Walderslade conveyancing solicitors and licensed conveyancers to verify the identity of the person or body they are dealing with before they can accept their conveyancing business. The Client Care letter that you need to sign will no doubt confirm this. Your lawyer is right that the bank also require certain documents to be viewed. If a you refuse to provide ID verification documents, your conveyancer would not be able to accept instructions from you. Your lawyer also has obligations to obtain certain documents in accordance with the mortgage company's UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements
