It is 10 years ago since I purchased my house in Frizington. Conveyancing solicitors have just been appointed on the sale but I can't find the deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?
Don’t worry too much. First there is a chance that the deeds will be with the lender or they may still be with the lawyers who handled your purchase. Secondly in most cases the land will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors procuring current official copies of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Frizington involves registered property but in the rare situation where your home is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.
We're in Frizington, First timers buying with a mortgage (lender is Nationwide , and our lawyer is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no solicitor should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.
How does conveyancing in Frizington differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Frizington come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because developers in Frizington tend to buy the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Frizington or who has acted in the same development.
