Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Oakdale

Can you help? My Oakdale lawyer is advising me that he has toorder Oakdale conveyancing searches resulting from the fact thatthe firm are on the Lloydsconveyancing panel. Is my solicitor correct?

Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are taking a mortgage with a mortgage company your lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your solicitor would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the CML Handbook provisions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Oakdale conveyancing searches.

Can you clarify what the consequences are if my lawyer’s firm is expelled from the Clydesdale Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Oakdale?

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 for a fee.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified as part of conveyancing in Oakdale?

Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Oakdale. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one near me in Oakdale I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Oakdale suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

If you need a mortgage that many years will be an issue. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
