Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Wilmslow

Please help. My Wilmslow solicitor is advising me that he is legally obliged toconduct Wilmslow conveyancing searches asthe firm are on the Virgin Moneysolicitor panel. Is my lawyer right?

Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are taking a mortgage with a bank your property lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your property lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the CML Handbook conditions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Wilmslow conveyancing searches.

I am purchasing a property in Wilmslow. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Co-operative be concerned?

As your lender is Co-operative your lawyer must check the conveyancing requirements set out in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Co-operative. The CML Handbook contains minimum requirements for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to Co-operative where a lease does not comply with these provisions. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not restricted to Wilmslow.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Santander. I assume I don't need a Wilmslow property lawyer on the Santander panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your Santander 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 Santander mortgage from the register. Santander, 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 Santander has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Santander has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Santander mortgage has been paid off.

I can not fathom if 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 Wilmslow bank branch on a couple of occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they would lend. My Wilmslow conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their specific requirements. I simply don't know who is right.

As long as the property lawyer is on the bank panel, they must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook provisions for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank 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 lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

What does a local search inform me concerning the house I am purchasing in Wilmslow?

Wilmslow conveyancing often commences with the applying for local authority searches directly from your local Authority or through a personal search company for example Onsearch The local search plays a central part in many a Wilmslow conveyancing purchase; as long as you don’t want any unpleasant once you have moved into your new home. The search will provide data on, amongst other things, details on planning applications applicable to the premises (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of thirteen subject sections.

I have todaydiscovered that Wolstenholmes have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Wilmslow for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 9 months ago. How can I establish that the property is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?

The quickest method to see if the property is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Wilmslow conveyancing specialists.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Wilmslow is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can give?

Flying freeholds in Wilmslow are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Wilmslow you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Wilmslow may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

Given that I am about to spend 450k on a terraced house in Wilmslow I would like to have a conversation with the conveyancer concerning thehouse move before giving the go ahead to the firm. Can this be arranged?

Absolutely - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the conveyancer due to be conducting your conveyancing in Wilmslow.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is an important individual, not a file number. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are calculated and presented to you for your conveyancing in Wilmslow should be the figure that you end up paying.
