Completed the sale of my flat in Bury last June yet the purchaser is texting me complaining that his solicitor needs to hear from mine. What are the post completion sale legalities now that I have sold?
Following your sale your lawyer is obliged to send the transfer documentation and all additional paperwork to the purchaser's conveyancer. Depending on the transaction, your conveyancer should also send confirmation that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been redeemed to the purchasers lawyers. There are no post completion tasks unique to conveyancing in Bury.
I have been told that property searches are the main cause of delay in Bury conveyancing transactions. Is that correct?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published conclusions of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the most frequent causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are not likely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Bury.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified as part of conveyancing in Bury?
Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Bury. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
My husband and I are 3 weeks into a residential purchase having been referred to a firm by the selling agent to handle our conveyancing in Bury. We are not happy. Could you help me find new solicitors?
They would need to be really poor in order to consider replacing them. Has the loan offer been issued? In the event that it has you must make them aware of the new solicitor and have the offer are re-sent. Your solicitor ideally needs to be on the lenders approved list to avoid added fees and complications. That should be your first question of the new solicitors.

I would like to sublet my leasehold apartment in Bury. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask him. Is permission from the freeholder required?
Some leases for properties in Bury do contain a provision to say that subletting is only allowed with permission. The landlord cannot unreasonably refuse but, in such cases, they would need to see references. Experience dictates that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting permission.
