Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Ashton

I am hoping to receive a offer of a home loan from Lloyds. My intention is to enlist the help of a Licensed Conveyancer in Ashton. Does the Lloyds Conveyancing panel allow for conveyancers regulated by the CLC?

The Lloyds conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, represented by the CML or BSA, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

I am buying a brand new flat in Ashton and my solicitor is informing me that she has to the lender to disclose incentives from the builder. I am nearing the developer’s deadline to exchange contracts and I would rather not prolong deal. is my lawyer playing by the book?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your property lawyer. A precondition to being on a mortgage company panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

I purchased a freehold house in Ashton but still charged rent, why is this and what is this?

It’s unusual for properties in Ashton and has limited impact for conveyancing in Ashton but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.

Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges have existed for hundreds of years, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the establishment of fresh rentcharges from 1977 onwards.

Old rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence in 2037 will be extinguished.

Is there a search tool that I can use to discover of the solicitor carrying out my conveyancing in Ashton is on the lender’sapproved panel? I am looking to avoid the situation of having one lawyer for me and one for Yorkshire Building Society thus spending £192.00 in supplemental legal invoice.

Feel free to take advantage of the search tool on this web page. Please choose the lender and type ‘Ashton’ or your preferred area and you will be presented with a number of lawyer located in Ashton or near you.

I moved into my house on 4 July and my personal details is not yet on the land registry website. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Ashton expressed confidence that it would be recorded in less than a month. Are properties in Ashton particularly slow to register?

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Ashton registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ subject to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry have to notify any other persons or bodies. As of today approximately three quarters of submission are fully addressed within 12 days but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Registration takes place once the purchaser has moved in to the property therefore registration formalities is not always an essential issue but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers must contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
