I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Cross Hands off the council. I have a mortgage agreed with Yorkshire BS. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Yorkshire BS, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel.
My offer on a detached house in Cross Hands has been accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have put an offer on somewhere, but it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other apartments booked. I have instructed a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Cross Hands. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Nationwide going?
It is normal to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses too early (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Cross Hands conveyancing search fees, etc). The first thing to do is check that your conveyancer is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. As to the subsequent steps this very much depends on the circumstances of your transaction, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market the majority of purchasers would apply for the mortgage with Nationwide and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their lawyer to press on with searches.
I have been told that property searches are the number one cause of obstruction in Cross Hands house deals. Is that correct?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published determinations of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the most frequent causes of hindrances during the legal transfer of property. Local searches are unlikely to feature in any slowing down conveyancing in Cross Hands.
I purchased a renovated Edwardian property in Cross Hands. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and TSB. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same property.

You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Cross Hands and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also check the situation with your conveyancing lawyer who conducted the conveyancing.
