Do I need to have a meeting at the offices of the solicitor to execute the legal charge? If so, I will appoint a lawyer who conducts conveyancing in Bolsover so that I can pop in to their offices if required.
Whereas this was necessary 12 years ago, most lenders no longer need their conveyancing panel lawyer to witness the borrowers signature. You will still be obliged to provide ID documents and there are still distinct benefits to instructing a local ayer, in your situation a conveyancing solicitor in Bolsover.
My partner and I have organised a further advance on our home loan from Aldermore as we intend to conduct renovations to our home in Bolsover. Do we need to select a local Bolsover solicitor on the Aldermore conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?
Aldermore would not normally appoint a member of their conveyancing panel to handle such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Aldermore conveyancing panel.
I have paid off my mortgage with Yorkshire BS. I assume I don't need a Bolsover conveyancer on the Yorkshire BS panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your Yorkshire BS mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Yorkshire BS mortgage from the register. Yorkshire BS, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Yorkshire BS has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Yorkshire BS has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The formalities of my purchase has taken place for my property in Bolsover. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I would like to complain about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?
Most lenders have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office. We understand that complaints to a lender are resolved effectively and efficiently. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.
We are selling our home in Bolsover and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. A high street Bolsover conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed an online conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Bolsover. Having lived in Bolsover for six years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to get clarification that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)
How does conveyancing in Bolsover differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Bolsover contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because new home sellers in Bolsover typically 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 conveyancers 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 Bolsover or who has acted in the same development.
