Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Morganstown

We are purchasing a newly constructed duplex in Morganstown and my lawyer is informing me that she is duty bound to the mortgage company to disclose incentives from the builder. The Estate Agents are hassling me to sign contracts and I have no desire to prolong deal. is my lawyer playing by the book?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your lawyer. A precondition to being on a lender panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

It is is a decade since I acquired my home in Morganstown. Conveyancing solicitors have now been appointed on the sale but I am unable to locate my title deeds. Is this a problem?

Don’t worry too much. First the deeds may be kept by the lender or they may stored with the conveyancers who oversaw the purchase. Secondly in all probability the title will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors acquiring current official copies of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Morganstown involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is not registered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.

I am helping my mother sell her flat in Morganstown. Does the solicitor arrange the energy assessment or do I organise this?

Following the demise of HIPs, energy performance certificates became a mandatory element of selling a property. An energy performance certificate must be to hand in advance of the property being marketed. It is not a task that lawyers ordinarily arrange. Where you are using a Morganstown conveyancing lawyer they may help arrange energy assessments given their contacts with long established local accredited person

We were going to get a OIP from Clydesdale this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Clydesdale recommend any Morganstown solicitors on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?

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

I have a mortgage with Lloyds for my property in Morganstown. Conveyancing was finalised 12 months ago. If I am intending to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Lloyds?

Lloyds must be informed of your intention prior to renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Lloyds’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Lloyds directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Lloyds conveyancing panel firm.

Just bought a terraced house in Morganstown , how long should it take for the Land Registry to register the transfer to my name? My Morganstown conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to check the registration formalities are addressed.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Morganstown registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry need to notify any other persons or bodies. Currently in the region of three quarters of submission are fully dealt with within 12 days but occasionally there can be longer delays. Registration takes place after the purchaser has moved in to the property thus 'speed' is not typically primary concern but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor must contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

My step-father has suggested that I instruct his conveyancing solicitors in Morganstown. Do I take his recommendation?

Much as we are happy to recommend a Morganstown conveyancing lawyer the ideal way to find a conveyancing practitioner is to get referrals from friends or family who have experience in using the solicitor you're contemplating using.
