Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Winterbourne

I am expecting a offer of a home loan from Nat West. My intention is to enlist the help of a Licensed Conveyancer in Winterbourne. Does the Nat West Solicitor panel exclude conveyancers regulated by the CLC?

The Nat West approved solicitor list is, like many other lenders, associated to the Council or Mortgage Lenders or BSA, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Winterbourne? Is this really warranted?

Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering laws require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to check the identity of the potential client they are dealing with prior to agreeing to accepting their conveyancing retainer. The Terms of Engagement that you are required to sign should stipulate this. Your lawyer also has obligations to obtain certain documents in accordance with the CML Lenders Handbook requirements last updated on 1st December 2014. Where you are unwilling to hand over ID verification documents, your conveyancer would not be able to accept instructions from you.

I have been referred to a conveyancing solicitor in Winterbourne. I I would like to check if they are accepted on the The Mortgage Works conveyancing panel. Can you assist?

You should contact your lawyer and enquire if they can act for the lender. Otherwise you can call The Mortgage Works who may be able to help.

We are due to move house in February. Should my conveyancing solicitor call the removal company on the completion day. As an aside, can you put forward a removal company in Winterbourne. Conveyancing firm was organised prior to coming across this website.

On the afternoon of completion you will need to pick up the house keys from your selling agent but this can only take place when the sellers lawyers confirm to the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be given over. After that you can advise the removal company that you are ready to move in. We are not in a position to recommend a particular removal organisation but can help you find a conveyancing in Winterbourne or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Winterbourne.

We had instructed conveyancing lawyers located in Winterbourne on the Santander solicitor approved list. They have just billed me a separate charge for the legal aspects of the Santander mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Santander?

Unfortunately, so long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your property lawyer may levy a fee for this. The charge is not set by Santander but by your Winterbourne lawyer. Numerous firms on the Santander panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.

I currently have a mortgage with Co-operative for my property in Winterbourne. Conveyancing has been completed months ago. Should I wish to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Co-operative?

Your original mortgage agreement with Co-operative will provide that you need their approval prior to renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Co-operative’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Co-operative directly. You need not do this via a Co-operative conveyancing panel lawyer.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified as part of conveyancing in Winterbourne?

Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Winterbourne. 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…’

How does conveyancing in Winterbourne differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Winterbourne come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because new home sellers in Winterbourne typically buy the real estate, 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 property lawyers 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 Winterbourne or who has acted in the same development.
