It is 10 years ago since I acquired my house in Hull East. Conveyancing solicitors have now been retained on the sale but I can't track down my title documents. Will this cause complications?

Don’t worry too much. First the deeds may be kept by the mortgage company or they could stored with the conveyancers who handled your purchase. Secondly in most cases the property will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors obtaining current official copies of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Hull East involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.

The Hull East conveyancing firm that just started acting on my purchase in Hull East have without warning closed. I chose them because I needed a solicitor on the HSBC conveyancing panel and my previous Hull East lawyer was not. I gave my credit card details for them to take £195 for searches. What do I do now?

Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then let them know immediately so that they can let the sellers know that there may be a slight delay due to the problems encountered. Hopefully they will be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You will need to appoint new lawyers that are on the HSBC conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new solicitors may be able to help.

How does conveyancing in Hull East differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Hull East come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because builders in Hull East usually acquire the real estate, 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 conveyancers 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 used to new build conveyancing in Hull East or who has acted in the same development.

I need to consider costs for conveyancing in Hull East from three conveyancing practitioner and appoint one. Am I right to ask them to sit tight until I I have my bid accepted on a flat.

We would recommend that you wait to ask your conveyancing practitioner to commence work and order searches once the offer has been agreed to on the property especially as Hull East conveyancing searches are a couple of hundred pounds.
