Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Cleator

My husband and I are buying a 3 bedroom flat in Cleator with a mortgage. We like our Cleator conveyancer, however the bank says she’s not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the mortgage company panel firms or continue with our Cleator conveyancing practitioner and pay for one of their panel ones to act for them. This seems very unfair; can we not require that the lender use our Cleator conveyancer ?

No, not really. Your mortgage offer is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your Cleator conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

I am hoping to put an offer on a small detached house that seems to be perfect, at a great figure which is making it all the more appealing. I have subsequently been informed that the title is leasehold as opposed to freehold. I would have thought that there are issues purchasing a leasehold house in Cleator. Conveyancing advisers have not yet been appointed. Will they explain the issues?

Most houses in Cleator are freehold rather than leasehold. This is one of the situations where having a local conveyancer who is familiar with the area who can assist with the conveyancing process. it is apparent that you are buying in Cleator so you should seriously consider looking for a Cleator conveyancing practitioner and be sure that they are used to advising on leasehold houses. First you will need to check the unexpired lease term. As a tenant you will not be at liberty to do whatever you want with the house. The lease comes with conditions such as requiring the landlord’spermission to carry out alterations. It may be necessary to pay a service charge towards the maintenance of the communal areas where the house is located on an estate. Your conveyancer should appraise you on the various issues.
