My IFA has requested my Werrington solicitor’s panel reference for the Santander conveyancing panel. Can you suggest how I obtain this. I have contacted my local Werrington office but they have not responded to me.
The sensible thing to do is ask for this information from your Werrington property lawyer . They keep a central record lender panel numbers.
I am planning to move house in January. Will my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the day of completion. As an aside, can you put forward a removal company in Werrington. Conveyancing firm was found prior to coming across this site.
On the afternoon of completion you can pick up the keys from the property agent but this can only be done after the sellers solicitors advise the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be handed over. After that you will need to inform the removal men that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a specific removal company but can assist you in finding a conveyancing in Werrington or a firm that specialises in conveyancing in Werrington.
Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Aldermore. Werrington conveyancing solicitors have been selected. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Aldermore?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Aldermore completed the survey? Have you informed Aldermore as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Aldermore conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
We were going to get a OIP from HSBC this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do HSBC recommend any Werrington solicitors on the HSBC conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Werrington solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the HSBC conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and HSBC through the process.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified during conveyancing in Werrington?
Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Werrington. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
I decided to have a survey completed on a property in Werrington ahead of instructing lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the house. Our surveyor has said that some lenders may not give a mortgage on this type of house.

Should you wish to telephone us we can investigate further with the appropriate bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Werrington. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
How does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my commercial premises in Werrington and how can your lawyers assist?
The particular law that you refer to affords security of tenure to business leaseholders, granting the dueness to make a request to court for a renewal lease and continue in occupation when the lease comes to an end. There are limited grounds where a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complicated. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing firms who use the act for protection and assist with commercial conveyancing in Werrington
Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Werrington. Before I set the wheels in motion I require certainty as to the unexpired term of the lease.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Werrington - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
