Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Lees and Moorside

My partner and I are only a couple days away from an exchange on a flat in Lees and Moorside and my mum and dad have transferred the exchange deposit to my property lawyer. I am now informed that as the deposit has been received from someone other than me my conveyancing practitioner needs to make a notification to my mortgage company. Apparently, in also acting for the lender he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is not just from me. I informed the lender concerning my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really necessary for this now to delay the deal?

The property lawyer is duty bound to clarify with lender to ensure that they understand that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. The solicitor can only disclose this to your lender if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

My brother-in-law has suggested I instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Lees and Moorside. I need to find out whether they are accepted on the TSB conveyancing panel. Can you or the lender confirm if they are on the panel?

How does conveyancing in Lees and Moorside differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Lees and Moorside approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because new home sellers in Lees and Moorside tend to 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 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 Lees and Moorside or who has acted in the same development.
