I just bought a house at auction in Holmes Chapel. Conveyancing is necessary. What happens now?

Now that you are exchanged you should find a conveyancing solicitor quickly as you will have a pending deadline in which to complete the conveyancing. An auction property will have a corresponding auction pack. This will include most,if not all of the documents that your solicitor will need. If you have purchased leasehold property the legal pack should contain a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing documentation relating to leasehold premises. You need to pass this on to the lawyer working for you as soon as possible. You also need to ensure that you have funds in order to complete on the date specified in the contract.

I'm the only recipient of my late father’s estate and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Holmes Chapel. The Holmes Chapel property was put into my name in August. I want to move. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship will be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the house in August. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be caught by that. How practical a view lenders take of it, depend on the bank as this requirement is chiefly there to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.

We previously chose conveyancing lawyers with offices in Holmes Chapel on the Aldermore solicitor approved list. They have just invoiced me an additional charge for the legal aspects of the Aldermore mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Aldermore?

Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your conveyancing practitioner may charge a fee for this. This charge is not set by Aldermore but by your Holmes Chapel conveyancer. Numerous firms on the Aldermore panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.

I dont have enough spare money to pay a 10% deposit on my apartment purchase in Holmes Chapel , but I still want to go ahead. What can I do?

You can agree a smaller deposit. Many vendors will accept a smaller deposit or even no deposit for a first time buyer or 100% mortgage. Be aware though that if you fail to complete you will still need to hand over a minimum of 10% of the purchase price regardless of how much deposit was agreed.

You can also agree a simultaneous exchange and completion as no deposit is required for this however neither party will be tied in until completion actually takes place and it can be risky if sellers change their mind at the last minute
