Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Glossop

My fiance and I are purchasing a ground floor flat in Glossop. My Solicitor is not on the lender approved list. Is it possible for me to retain my Glossop conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the lender approved list?

You will need to have a solicitor to complete the formalities when you need a loan to purchase your home. The property lawyer will carry out all the essential investigations on the property, ensuring that you will be registered as proprietor and ensure that all the necessary mortgage documentation is in place. One can select a Glossop conveyancer of your choice. However, where the lawyer appointed is not on the mortgage company approved list additional costs will be incurred as separate legal representation will be need by the bank. Bank panel applications can be submitted, so where your conveyancer has not in the past sought membership they should do so.

Do I need to have a meeting at the offices of the solicitor to sign the legal charge? If so, I will appoint a lawyer who conducts conveyancing in Glossop so that I can attend their offices if required.

Nowadays conveyancing panel lawyers for lenders undertake all of the work through Royal Mail, internet or over the phone. This enables them to undertake the legal work for your home move regardless of where you live in England or Wales. However you should see if you have the option of going to the offices of your conveyancing lawyer if you prefer.

I have been told that property searches are a common cause of hinderance in Glossop house deals. Is this right?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published findings of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the top 10 causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Local searches are unlikely to feature in any slowing down conveyancing in Glossop.

How does conveyancing in Glossop differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Glossop come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because developers in Glossop usually purchase 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Glossop or who has acted in the same development.

Is it best to use a Glossop conveyancing lawyer based in the location that I am hoping to buy? An old friend can execute the legal formalities but her office is a couple of hundredkilometers drive away.

The benefit of a high street Glossop conveyancing practice is that you can pop in to sign paperwork, present your identification documents and pester them where appropriate. They will also have local knowledge which is a benefit. However it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If other friends have used your friend and on the whole were happy that should trump using an unfamiliar Glossop conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being local.
