I am hoping to receive a mortgage with Halifax. I intend to employ the services of a Licensed Conveyancer in Whitehaven. Does the Halifax Solicitor panel exclude Licensed Conveyancers?
The Halifax conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, associated to the CML or BSA, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
How does conveyancing in Whitehaven differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Whitehaven come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because new home sellers in Whitehaven usually acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Whitehaven or who has acted in the same development.
Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Whitehaven ahead of retaining solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the house. The surveyor advised that some lenders may refuse to grant a loan on a flying freehold property.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Whitehaven.

My husband and I are first time buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the estate agent informed us that the seller will only proceed if we appoint their preferred conveyancers as they want a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a high street conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Whitehaven
We suspect that the owner is unaware of this ultimatum. Should the owner require ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Speak to the vendors direct and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you are going to instruct your own,trusted Whitehaven conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will provide their negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or hit his conveyancing targets set by senior management.
