Finally the sale completed on my house in Barlaston last November but our buyer keeps whats apping every few hours to say their solicitor is waiting to hear from mine. What are the post completion sale formalities now that I have sold?
After completion of your house sale your solicitor is duty bound to send the transfer documentation and all supplemental paperwork to the purchaser's conveyancer. Where appropriate, your lawyer should also confirm that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been repaid to the buyers solicitors. There are no post completion tasks peculiar conveyancing in Barlaston.
Can you clarify what the consequences are if my solicitor is expelled from the TSB Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Barlaston?
First, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.
I completed on my apartment on 2 February and the transaction details are still not on the land registry website. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Barlaston advises it would be dealt with in a couple of weeks. Are properties in Barlaston uniquely lengthy to register?
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Barlaston registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can vary depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any third parties. As of today roughly 80% of submission are completed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to longer hold-ups. Registration takes place after the purchaser is living at the premises thus an expedited registration is not always primary concern yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor should speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
How does conveyancing in Barlaston differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Barlaston approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because house builders in Barlaston usually purchase the land, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Barlaston or who has acted in the same development.
