Recently asked questions about conveyancing in North Cave

My husband and I intend to purchase a purpose built apartment in North Cave with a mortgage from Bank of Ireland.We have a North Cave conveyancing solicitor but Bank of Ireland says her practice is not on their "panel". we are left little option but to use a Bank of Ireland panel lawyer or retain our preferred solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to act for them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?

Unfortunately,no. The loan issued to you contains various provisions, one of which will be that lawyers must be on the Bank of Ireland approved list. in the past, most mortgage companies had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Bank of Ireland

I am helping my aunt sell her property in North Cave. Does the solicitor arrange the energy performance certificate or should I organise this?

After the abolition of HIPs, energy performance certificates remained a required component of selling a property. An energy performance certificate needs to be to hand in advance of the property being advertised. It is not a task that lawyers normally arrange. Where you are instructing a North Cave conveyancing solicitor they might help arrange energy assessments given their contacts with long established local energy assessors

We are purchasing a 4 bedroom semi-detached house in North Cave. The intention is to carry out a loft conversion at the house.Will the conveyancing process include enquiries to ascertain if these alterations were previously refused?

Your solicitor will check the deeds as conveyancing in North Cave can on occasion identify restrictions in the title documents which prevent certain alterations or necessitated the permission of another owner. Some additions require local authority planning consent and approval in compliance with building regulations. Some areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or impact extensions. It would be wise to check these issues with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.

I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in North Cave off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Clydesdale. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Clydesdale, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel.

Various internet forums that I have come across warn that are a common cause of stalling in North Cave conveyancing transactions. Is that correct?

I'm converting the mortgage on my primary house to a buy to let mortgage with Virgin Money and I will use the rest of the raised equity as a deposit on a second property.

We're new to the buying process - agreed a price, yet the estate agent informed us that the owners will only proceed if we appoint their recommended lawyers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street conveyancer used to conveyancing in North Cave

We suspect that the seller is unaware of this request. Should the vendor desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious buyer is not the way to achieve this. Speak to the vendors direct and make sure they understand (a)you are serious purchasers (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you are going to use your own,trusted North Cave conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthe ones that will provide the negotiator at the agency a referral fee or hit his conveyancing figures set by HQ.
