My husband and I wish to acquire a purpose built apartment in Ferryhill with a residential mortgage from Yorkshire Building Society.We would like to retain our Ferryhill conveyancing practitioner but Yorkshire Building Society advised that he's not on their approved list of firms. we are left little option but to use a Yorkshire Building Society panel firm or retain our preferred solicitor and pay for a Yorkshire Building Society panel lawyer to act for them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
No, not really. The loan offered to you contains terms and conditions, a common one being that solicitors must be on the Yorkshire Building Society approved list. in the past, most banks had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find 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. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Yorkshire Building Society
My wife and I buying a victorian detached house in Ferryhill. The intention is to carry out an extension to the side at the property.Will the conveyancing process involve checks to ascertain if these works are allowed?
Your property lawyer should review the deeds as conveyancing in Ferryhill will sometimes identify restrictions in the title deeds which prohibit categories of changes or require the permission of a 3rd party. Some extensions call for local authority planning permissions and approval under the building regulations. Many locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. It would be wise to check these things with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.
Can you point me to a directory of Leeds Building Society panel conveyancers in Ferryhill on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?
No. There is no such directory service on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association websites. A small selection of lending institutions make their panel listings visible on the web. If you are in need of a Ferryhill solicitor on the Leeds Building Society please use our facility.
Planning on purchasing a flat in Ferryhill. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Barclays conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Ferryhill conveyancing practitioner is on the Barclays conveyancing panel.
The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build apartment in Ferryhill. Conveyancing is a frightening process 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.

The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? 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. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. 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've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Ferryhill is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Ferryhill are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Ferryhill you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Ferryhill may ascertain 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 four weeks into a residential purchase having been directed to conveyancers by the estate agent to execute conveyancing in Ferryhill. We are not happy. Could you you assist me in finding new lawyers?
A conveyancer would have to be very bad in order to consider changing them. Has the mortgage been generated? If so you need to advise them of the new contact details and ensure the loan are issued to the new lawyers. Your solicitor ideally should be on the banks approved list to avoid added expenses and frustration. That should be your starting point.
