Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Wennington

Can you explain why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Wennington is more expensive?

In summary, leasehold conveyancing in Wennington and elsewhere usually involve extra work compared to freehold transactions. This includes reviewing the lease, liaising with the landlord about serving applicable notices, securing current service charge and management information, obtaining the landlord’s consents and reviewing management accounts. The obligations on both the landlord and the tenant in the lease need to be studied by the buyer’s conveyancing team and read from beginning to end – regardless of the fact the lease has passed through many different property solicitors hands since it was first granted.

The Wennington conveyancing firm that I appointed last week on my house acquisition in Wennington have without warning closed. I chose them because I needed a firm on the Skipton conveyancing panel and my preferred Wennington lawyer was not. I paid them 275 plus VAT on account. What are my options?

If you have an estate agent involved then inform them immediately so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to reasons beyond your control. Hopefully they will be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the Skipton conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new lawyers should be in a position to assist.

When it comes to lenders such as Aldermore, do Wennington conveyancers face a fee to be on the conveyancing panel?

We are not aware of any lender fees to register on their panel, although some do levy an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.

We had chosen conveyancers locally in Wennington on the HSBC solicitor panel. They have just invoiced me a supplemental amount for dealing with the HSBC mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by HSBC?

As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your conveyancing practitioner may levy a fee for this. The charge is not set by HSBC but by your Wennington property lawyer. Plenty of firms on the HSBC panel will quote ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but some practices incorporate it on their overall fee.

We were going to get a AIP from RBS this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do RBS recommend any Wennington solicitors on the RBS conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Wennington solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the RBS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and RBS through the process.

I require quick conveyancing in Wennington as I am faced with pressure to sign on the dotted line inside 4 weeks. A home loan is not required. Is it possible to decline from having conveyancing searches to save fees and time?

As you are are a cash buyer you are at liberty not to do searches although no law firm would suggest that you don't. With lots of history conveyancing in Wennington the following are examples of issues that can appear and therefore affect the marketability of the property: Refused Planning Applications, Outstanding Fees, Overdue Grants, Road Schemes,...

Me and my brother purchased a 4 bedroom Georgian property in Wennington. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Barclays Direct. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Wennington and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also check the position with the conveyancing practitioner who completed the work.

I'm converting the mortgage on my existing home to a buy to let loan with Virgin Money and intend to use the remaining equity towards a second property. The location we are talking about is Wennington. Will your solicitors be able to act for both sets of lenders and link together the conveyances?

Make use of our comparison tool on this page to check that the solicitors are on the relevant lender panels. Having checked that they are the conveyancer will be able to tie up the two deals but you should have a chat with you conveyancer and specify your desired outcome and requirements.
