Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Woodley

I am told that my conveyancing solicitors will need to check that the building insurance when buying a house in Woodley. My lender is Nationwide Building Society

Nationwide Building Society have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook. As of 22/6/2022, the requirements read as follows :

We are due to move house in September. Will my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Woodley. Conveyancing firm was chosen before I stumbled across this website.

On the day of completion you can pick up the keys from the selling agent but this can only occur after the sellers conveyancers inform the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be collected. Subsequently you can advise the removal company that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a particular removal company but can help you find a residential property solicitor in Woodley or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Woodley.

I happen to be the only recipient of my late grandmother’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Woodley. The Woodley property was put into my name in May. I plan to dispose of the house. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship could be considered the same way as if I'd bought the property in May. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook mandates conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be impacted by that. many mortgage companies would take a sensible view as this requirement is primarily there to capture subsales or the quick reselling of property.

I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Woodley off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Yorkshire BS. Conveyancing is new to me. 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 Yorkshire BS, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel.

Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Woodley in advance of retaining lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. Our surveyor has said that some lenders will refuse to issue a mortgage on a flying freehold home.

Should you wish to call us we can look into this further via the relevant mortgage company.

I am one month into a residential purchase having been recommend to solicitors by the local agent to execute conveyancing in Woodley. I am am starting to be disappointed with the level of service. Could you help me find new lawyers?

They would have to be very bad to suggest replacing them. Has your mortgage offer been generated? If so you need to inform them of the new contact details and get the mortgage documents are issued to the new lawyers. The solicitor ideally should be on the banks panel to avoid supplemental charges and complications. That should be your starting point.

When it comes to leasehold conveyancing in Woodley what are the most frequent lease problems?

Leasehold conveyancing in Woodley is not unique. Most leases are unique and legal mistakes in the legal wording can result in certain provisions are erroneous. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:

    Clauses dealing with recovering service charges for expenditure on the building or common parts. Maintenance charge proportions which don’t add up to the correct percentage

A defective lease will likely cause issues when trying to sell a property as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage. Accord Mortgages Ltd, The Royal Bank of Scotland, and Barclays Direct all have very detailed requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease does not cover certain provisions they may refuse to provide security, obliging the buyer to pull out.

Woodley Leasehold Conveyancing - Examples of Questions you should ask Prior to Purchasing

    Does the lease contain onerous restrictions? The answer will be useful as a) areas could cause problems in the block as the common areas may start to deteriorate if repairs remain unpaid b) if the leaseholders have an issue with the managing agents you will need to have full disclosure How much is the annual service fee and ground rent?

I need to assess quotes for conveyancing in Woodley from three solicitor and appoint one. Am I right to tell them to hold tight until I I have an offer accepted on a apartment.

You should only ask your conveyancing practitioner to open a file and apply for searches once the sales confirmation has been issued by the estate agent particularly as Woodley conveyancing searches are costly.
