Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Wallasey

is it true that all Wallasey solicitor firms on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel are overseen by the SRA?

As solicitors, in order to be on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel they would need to be regulated by the SRA. Some lenders do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such firms would be regulated by the CLC.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Aldermore. I assume I don't need a Wallasey conveyancer on the Aldermore panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

If you have finished paying off your Aldermore mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Aldermore mortgage from the register. Aldermore, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Aldermore has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Aldermore has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Aldermore mortgage has been paid off.

It is unclear whether my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Wallasey building society branch on various occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they would lend. My Wallasey conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- called and was told they would not lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I simply don't know who is right.

Provided that the property lawyer is on the mortgage company panel, they must adhere to the CML Handbook conditions for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender 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.

Will commercial conveyancing searches reveal impending roadworks that could impact a commercial estate in Wallasey?

Many commercial conveyancing solicitors in Wallasey will conduct a SiteSolutions Highways report as it dramatically cuts the time that conveyancers spend in researching accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Wallasey. The report provides definitive data on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Wallasey.

For each commercial conveyancing transaction in Wallasey it is critical to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site. The absence of identifying developments where adoption procedures have not been dealt with adequately can cause delays to Wallasey commercial conveyancing deals as well as present a risk to future intentions for the site. These searches are not carried out for domestic conveyancing in Wallasey.

It has been 2 months following my purchase conveyancing in Wallasey took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £180,000. 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.

I am purchasing my first flat in Wallasey with the aid of help to buy. The builders would not reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The estate agent suggested that I not reveal to my conveyancer about this extras as it could put at risk my mortgage with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

My husband and I are first time buyers just having agreed a price on a property in Wallasey, and are now looking to get solicitors lined up. I have made use of the numerous rating tools and the results are from all across the England and Wales. Is it important to have a Wallasey conveyancer local to our prospective property? We are fine to do everything electronically, but I assume at some point we will need to attend the property lawyer's office to sign papers?

Usually there is no need to physically visit the office of your conveyancing practitioner, they can send any relevant documents to you, which you can sign and return. Many buyers and sellers prefer to instruct a locally based solicitor, but it is not a prerequisite for conveyancing in Wallasey.
