We have a mortgage agreed in principle with Santander. Cottingham conveyancing solicitors are instructed. How long does it take for Santander to send the offer to the solicitor?

There is no definitive answer here. Have Santander conducted the valuation? Have you informed Santander as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Santander conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

I have todaybecome aware that Action Conveyancing have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Cottingham for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 18 months ago. How can I check that the property is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?

The quickest way to check if the property is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Cottingham conveyancing specialists.

I am buying a new build flat in Cottingham. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Cottingham

    Please supply a car parking plan. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified.

I was pointed in your direction by a number of property agents in Cottingham to select a conveyancer on your site. What’s the financial advantage for Estate Agents to offer your services over a competitor’s?

We refuse to make any commission for directing people in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission because a client could think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

Whilst your website is a good idea there are many lawyers listed near Cottingham being on the mortgage company conveyancing panel. It would be a lot more helpful if you could recommend a specific firm on the lender approved panel?

We do not recommend specific Cottingham firms as the right Cottingham conveyancing firm for you depends on where your priorities lie. For example you may require a local firm with Cottingham knowledge or you might be looking for the low cost conveyancing. Before you appoint your lawyer we advise you to speak to two or three of the the firms listed to gain comfort as to which one is right for you..
