Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Kirkby Stephen

We were just about to exchange contracts for a garden flat in Kirkby Stephen. We encountered a snag. The mortgage offer with The Royal Bank of Scotland expires on 22/7/2024 but the sellers are insisting on a completion date of 24/7/2024. Is it possible to extend the mortgage expiry date?

The best person to address this concern is your lawyer who should assess whether they better off negotiating with the lender, seller’s solicitors, estate agents or indeed all parties given the history of your transaction as of today.

If you had a top tip for selecting a conveyancing solicitor in Kirkby Stephen what would it be?

We would encourage you not to go for the lowest Kirkby Stephen conveyancing fees. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

We expect to receive a AIP from Co-operative this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Co-operative recommend any Kirkby Stephen solicitors on the Co-operative conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Kirkby Stephen solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Co-operative through the process.

I recently had an offer agreed on a house in Kirkby Stephen. My mortgage broker recommended their conveyancers. I paid an on account payment of £200. Not long after, the conveyancer called me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the RBS conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the RBS panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

I understand that there are debates on Chancel Insurance on online forums. Am I compelled to have this when purchasing a residence in Kirkby Stephen? or I am told that there is an ancient law that means some homeowners living in a parish church boundary may be liable to pay for maintenance to the chancel in proximity to the church. Is this relevant for conveyancing in Kirkby Stephen?

Unless a prior acquisition of the house completed after 12 October 2013 you can expect conveyancing practitioners conducting conveyancing in Kirkby Stephen to continue to suggest a chancel search and or insurance against a claim.
