We are looking to buy a property and need a conveyancing solicitor in Haslington who is on the HSBC approved panel. Can you recommend a local firm?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for HSBC . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Haslington.
four months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Haslington took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
How does conveyancing in Haslington differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Haslington contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Haslington tend to buy the land, 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 property lawyers 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 Haslington or who has acted in the same development.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in last month in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Haslington is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Haslington are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Haslington you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Haslington 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 property.
We're novice buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the selling agent informed us that the seller will only move forward if we use their preferred lawyers as they want a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a local solicitor used to conveyancing in Haslington
We suspect that the seller is unaware of this requirement. If they want ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious buyer is not the way to achieve this. Speak to the vendors direct and make the point that (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you are chain free (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you intend to appoint your preferred Haslington conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will give the estate agent a introducer fee or hit his conveyancing thresholds pre-set by HQ.
