Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Danescourt

What happens if my lawyer’s firm is removed from the Clydesdale Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Danescourt?

The first thing to point out is that, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

I have been told that property searches are the primary cause of obstruction in Danescourt house deals. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the findings of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the common causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Local searches are not likely to feature in any holding up conveyancing in Danescourt.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up during conveyancing in Danescourt?

Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Danescourt. 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…’

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Danescourt is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Danescourt are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Danescourt you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Danescourt may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

My husband and I are acquiring a 2 bedroom flat in Danescourt. When we first instructed property lawyer, they told us that they were on all mainstream mortgage company panels. Our mortgage broker called just now to say that they don't appear to be on the Barclays approved list. If it turns out to be true, what should we do? Do we just pick a new conveyancing practitioner that is on their panel or should we pay for dual representation, with Barclays selecting their own approved lawyer.

When buying a property with the benefit of a mortgage it is normal for the purchaser’s solicitors to also act for the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a solicitor has to be on that lender's list of approved lawyers. An application has to be made by the lawyer to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the solicitor has to satisfy. Some banks now require their panel firms to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Accreditation Scheme. Your property lawyer should call Barclays and see if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You don't have to instruct a firm on Barclays's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Danescourt lawyers, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it will likely delay the transaction as you are adding another lawyer into the mix.
