We chose a high street solicitor for my conveyancing in Bramhall recently. After carefully reading the fine print I notewe are responsible for charges even if our purchase aborts. Should I ditch them and instruct a web based conveyancing company promoting no move no charge conveyancing in Bramhall?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Sale No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will generally be higher to neutralise the conveyances that abort. You should be mindful that these arrangements rarely cover expenditure e.g. Bramhall conveyancing search charges.
What is the first thing I need to know concerning purchase conveyancing in Bramhall?
You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Bramhall and elsewhere in England and Wales is an adversarial experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists plenty of opportunity for conflict between you and other parties involved in the home moving process. For example, the vendor, property agent and sometimes your bank. Selecting a solicitor for your conveyancing in Bramhall should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY party in the legal process whose responsibility is to protect your best interests and to keep you safe.
There is a definite emergence in the "blame" culture- someone has to be at fault for the process taking so long. We recommend that you your first instinct should be to trust your conveyancer above the other players when it comes to the legal transfer of property.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Principality. I assume I don't need a Bramhall conveyancer on the Principality panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your Principality 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 Principality mortgage from the register. Principality, 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 Principality has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Principality has instructed the Land Registry to do so
I can not fathom if my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Bramhall building society branch on various occasions and was informed it wasn't an issue and they would lend. My Bramhall conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- called to say that they would not lend in accordance with their specific requirements. I simply don't know who is right.
Your solicitor has to comply with the CML Handbook section two requirements for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
I am buying a new build house in Bramhall with a mortgage from Clydesdale. The developers refused to move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent told me not inform my conveyancer about the extras as it may adversely affect my mortgage with Clydesdale. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
