Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Peak District

I have given 2 months notice to my current landlord and must be out of my let out property in Peak District by 1/5/2023. Conveyancing for my house purchase is progressing. Is it possible to complete in a couple of weeks as don't want to have to move into temporary accommodation?

Generally one should not serve notice for your lease unless your lawyer suggests that you should. If you have not already done so, speak to your solicitor and request that they apply pressure on the owners lawyers, try to get a realistic time scale from them that everyone will work to achieve

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as a first time buyer of a two bedroom flat in Peak District. Do I collect the keys to the premises on completion from my conveyancer? If so, I will appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Peak District?

On the day of completion you will not be required to go to the conveyancers office in Peak District. Your solicitors will electronically transfer the purchase money to the seller's lawyers, and once they have received this, you will be called to receive the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen early afternoon.

We had appointed conveyancers based in Peak District on the Leeds Building Society solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a supplemental amount for the legal aspects of the Leeds Building Society mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Leeds Building Society?

Unfortunately, so long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your conveyancing practitioner can levy a fee for this. The charge is not dictated by Leeds Building Society but by your Peak District property lawyer. Numerous firms on the Leeds Building Society panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.

Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Nationwide. Peak District conveyancing practitioners have been instructed. How long does it take for Nationwide to issue the offer to the property lawyer?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Nationwide completed the valuation? Have you advised Nationwide as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Nationwide conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

I have a semi-detached Edwardian house in Peak District. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Peak District and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also enquire as to the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who carried out the work.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Peak District. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.
