Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Westhoughton

My financial adviser requires my Westhoughton lawyer’ panel reference for the Nat West conveyancing panel. What is the best way to find this out. I have called my local Westhoughton branch but they cant find it on their system.

You are best placed to get this information from your Westhoughton solicitor . Most Westhoughton conveyancing firms will keep a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each bank.

I am selling my home in Westhoughton. Does my lawyer need to be on the Lloyds conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Lloyds conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their conditions fairly frequently at the moment.

This question may be naive but I am unseasoned as a 1st time purchaser of a two bedroom flat in Westhoughton. Do I collect the keys to the house on completion from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will instruct a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Westhoughton?

On the day of completion you do not need to go to the conveyancers office in Westhoughton. Your solicitors will transfer the completion advance to the seller's solicitors, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be able to collect the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Westhoughton. I have a mortgage agreed with Santander. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Santander, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Santander conveyancing panel.

It is unclear whether my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Westhoughton building society branch on a couple of occasions and was advised it wasn't an issue and they will lend. My Westhoughton conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- called and was told they refuse to lend in accordance with their specific requirements. I simply don't know who is right.

The solicitor must comply with the CML Handbook Part 2 conditions for your 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.

I'm purchasing my first flat in Westhoughton with the aid of help to buy. The developers would not reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The property agent suggested that I not disclose to my lawyer about this side-deal as it could affect my mortgage with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer 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.

I need to find a conveyancing solicitor for leasehold conveyancing in Westhoughton. I've land on a web site which seems to have the perfect answer If it is possible to get all formalities completed via email that would be preferable. Should I be concerned? What are the potential pitfalls?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?

It may have been a long time coming a loan agreement from a bank for the refinancing of my 3 bedroom apartment is to be issued imminently. Could you recommend a cheap remortgage conveyancing lawyer in Westhoughton ?
