My brother-in-law has suggested I instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Eccles. I need to find out whether they are on the Yorkshire Building Society conveyancing panel. Could you assist?
The first thing you should do is call the conveyancer and ask them if they can act for the lender. Otherwise you can call Yorkshire Building Society who may be able to help.
If you had a top tip for selecting a conveyancing solicitor in Eccles what would it be?
It would be unwise to be seduced by the cheapest Eccles conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.
We are getting the release of further monies on our home loan from Lloyds as we want to carry out improvements to our property in Eccles. Are we obliged to choose a high street Eccles solicitor on the Lloyds conveyancing panel to handle the legals?
Lloyds don't usually instruct firms on their approved list of lawyers to handle the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Lloyds conveyancing panel.
At last I have had an offer on a maisonette in Eccles accepted, the vendors do however have a dependent purchase. The owners have placed an offer on on an apartment, however it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other flats booked. I have selected a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Eccles. What should be my next step? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with RBS?
It is understandable to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Eccles conveyancing search fees, etc). The first thing to do is check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the RBS conveyancing panel. Concerning the next stages this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your transaction, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. In a rising market the majority of buyers will apply for the mortgage with RBS and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their conveyancing practitioner to move forward with the conveyancing in Eccles.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Eccles is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Eccles are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Eccles you must be sure that your lawyer goes 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 Eccles may decide 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.
