Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hoole

My wife and I are only a couple days away from an exchange on a house in Hoole and my mum and dad have transferred the ten percent deposit to my property lawyer. I am now told that as the deposit has not come from me my property lawyer needs to make a notification to my mortgage company. Apparently, in also acting for the bank he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I informed the bank regarding my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for him to raise this?

The solicitor is duty bound to check with lender to ensure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only disclose this to your bank if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

Do I choose a Licenced Conveyancer or Solicitor for conveyancing in Hoole?

I am expecting a AIP from Virgin Money this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Virgin Money recommend any Hoole solicitors on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Hoole solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Virgin Money through the process.

My offer on a detached house in Hoole has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The sellers have offered on a flat, but it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other flats booked. I have chosen a high street conveyancing solicitor in Hoole. What do I do now? When do I get the mortgage application with Lloyds going?

It is understandable to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Hoole conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you must check that your solicitor is on the Lloyds approved list. As to the next phase this very much depends on the specifics of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market many purchasers will apply for the mortgage with Lloyds and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their conveyancer to proceed with the conveyancing in Hoole.

Its becoming the norm that commercial conveyancing solicitors in Hoole will execute a SiteSolutions Highways report as it dramatically cuts the time that conveyancers spend in investigating accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Hoole. The report provides definitive information on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Hoole.

For each commercial conveyancing transaction in Hoole it is critical to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site.

My husband and I are 17 days into a leasehold purchase having been referred to conveyancers by the high street agent to carry out the conveyancing in Hoole. I am am starting to be dissatisfied with the level of service. Could you help me find new conveyancers?

They would have to be very poor to suggest changing them. Has your loan offer been sent? If so you need to advise them of the new contact details and ensure the loan are issued to the new lawyers. Your conveyancer needs to be on the banks panel to avoid escalating charges and frustration. So that should be your starting point.

My husband and I are selling a Hoole ground floor flat we inherited six years ago in 2012. I have over a decades worth of conveyancing know-how and, although retired, wish to carry out the legal work. The buyer's property lawyer has informed me that their bank will not allow you to do your own conveyancing requiring the funds to be transferred to a solicitor's bank account.

Lending instructions to conveyancers from all CML members specify that If the seller does not have legal representation the buyer’s lawyers should check whether the mortgage company needs to be told so that a decision can be made as to whether they are willing to progress.
