My wife and I have just purchased a house in Goole. We have since encountered a number of issues with the property which we believe were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? Can you clarify the nature of searches that needed to have been conducted as part of conveyancing in Goole?
It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are unique to conveyancing in Goole. Conveyancing searches and due diligence undertaken during the legal transfer of property are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a seller completes a document called a SPIF. If the information proves to be incorrect, then you may have a claim against the seller for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Goole.
Can you clarify what the consequences are if my solicitor is removed from the Co-operative Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Goole?
First, this is very unlikely to happen. 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 for a fee.
I am assisting my niece sell her property in Goole. Will the conveyancer commission an energy assessment or should I organise this?
After the demise of Home Packs, energy assessments became a required part of selling a property. An EPC needs to be commissioned prior to the property being placed on the market. This is not a task that conveyancers normally arrange. Where you are instructing a Goole conveyancing practitioner they might help arrange EPC’s given their contacts with long established Goole providers
My wife and I have organised a further advance on our home loan from Nationwide as we want to carry out alterations to our house in Goole. Are we obliged to choose a bricks and mortar Goole solicitor on the Nationwide conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?
Nationwide would not normally appoint a member of their conveyancing panel to handle such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Nationwide conveyancing panel.
Intending to buy a flat in Goole. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the TSB 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 Goole solicitor is on the TSB conveyancing panel.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified during conveyancing in Goole?
Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Goole. 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…’
