Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Linslade

What happens if my lawyer’s firm is removed from the Santander Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Linslade?

The first thing to point out is that, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

Will commercial conveyancing searches reveal planned roadworks that may impact a commercial land in Linslade?

Many commercial conveyancing solicitors in Linslade will execute a SiteSolutions Highways report as it dramatically cuts the time that conveyancers expend in looking into accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Linslade.

It has been 3 months following my purchase conveyancing in Linslade completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

How does conveyancing in Linslade differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Linslade come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because developers in Linslade tend to purchase the site, 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 Linslade or who has acted in the same development.

After what feels like an age I have had an offer on an apartment in Linslade agreed to, but there is a chain. The vendors have submitted an offer on a property, but it’s not yet tied up, and are looking at other properties booked. I have chosen a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Linslade. What should be my next step? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with Yorkshire BS?

It is normal to have concerns where there is an associated chain given your reluctance to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then valuation, Linslade conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you must check that your property lawyer is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. As to the next steps this very much dictated by the circumstances of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market the majority of purchasers will apply for the mortgage with Yorkshire BS and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their property lawyer to proceed with searches.
