Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Cheshire

My wife and I have recently appointed a conveyancing solicitor in Cheshire. I I am struggling to find out whether they are accepted on the Skipton Building Society conveyancing panel. Could you or the lender confirm if they are on the panel?

You should contact the solicitor and enquire if they can act for the lender. Otherwise you can call Skipton Building Society who may be able to confirm.

Various internet forums that I have visited warn that are the number one reason for obstruction in Cheshire house deals. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published determinations of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature within the top 10 causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are not likely to feature in any holding up conveyancing in Cheshire.

How does conveyancing in Cheshire differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Cheshire approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because house builders in Cheshire typically acquire 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 property lawyers 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 Cheshire or who has acted in the same development.

What does commercial conveyancing in Cheshire cover?

Cheshire conveyancing for business premises covers a broad array of services, offered by regulated solicitors, relating to business property. For example, this area of conveyancing can cover the sale or purchase of freehold business premises or, more commonly, the transfer of existing business tenancies or the drafting of new leasing arrangements. Commercial conveyancing solicitors can also offer advice on the sale of business assets, commercial mortgages and the termination of tenancies.

What can I do to establish who is the owner of a property in Cheshire?

Provided the premises is recorded at the Land Registry, and you have enough details of the address of the property, you will be able to view details from the HM Land Registry of the registered proprietor for a fee.
