I just bought a flat at auction in Ackworth. Conveyancing is needed. What happens now?

Having for all intents and purposes signed on the dotted line you should choose a conveyancing practitioner quickly as you are facing a pending deadline in which to complete the property. An auction property will have an associated auction set of papers. This will likely include the copy title deeds, local authority and drainage searches. If you have purchased leasehold premises the auction papers should contain a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing documentation pertinent to leasehold premises. You should pass this on to the solicitor working for you ASAP. You also need to ensure that your finances are in order to complete the transaction on the set completion date.

I am buying a 4 bedroom semi-detached house in Ackworth. The intention is to an extension at the rear at the property.Will the conveyancing process involve checks to determine if these alterations were previously refused?

Your solicitor will check the deeds as conveyancing in Ackworth will on occasion reveal restrictions in the title deeds which restrict certain works or necessitated the consent of a 3rd party. Many extensions need local authority planning permissions and approval under the building regulations. Many areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions. It would be prudent to check these things with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.

I am expecting a DIP from Yorkshire BS this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

You will need to appoint Ackworth solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Yorkshire BS through the process.

My husband and I are first time buyers - had an offer accepted, but the estate agent advised that the seller will only go ahead if we use the agent's chosen lawyers as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a family conveyancer who is accustomed to conveyancing in Ackworth

It is highly unlikely the owners are behind this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated purchaser is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Speak to the vendors direct and make the point that (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are ready to progress, with finances in place © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you intend to instruct your own,trusted Ackworth conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthose that will provide the negotiator at the agency a kickback or meet his conveyancing thresholds demanded by head office.

A licensed conveyancer acted on my conveyancing in Ackworth half a dozen years past and was holding my title documents but has now closed – how do I get hold of these?

Deeds, as such, no longer exist as the majority of properties in Ackworth are registered electronically at Land Registry. If you need to establish evidence of proprietorship or are selling or refinancing your conveyancer can obtain up to date copies of the register from the Land Registry in any case.

If you feel there may be other documents or you have any other queries please e-mail your request with details of the transaction and documents you need to filerequest@clc-uk.org. The CLC will let you know what information they have and any additional information they may need before they are in a position to identify and send the documents to you. Following an intervention it may take some time for the CLC to access archived files and documents, but your request will be actioned as quickly as possible.
