My IFA has asked me for my Poynton lawyer’ panel reference for the Santander conveyancing panel. What is the best way to discover this. I have called my local Poynton branch but they don't know it.
You are best placed to get this information from your Poynton solicitor . Most Poynton law firms will keep a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each mortgage company.
Having sold my house in Poynton last October but the buyer keeps telephoning every few hours to say his solicitor is waiting to hear from myconveyancer. What should have happened now that I have sold?
After completion of your disposal your conveyancer should forward the transfer documentation and all of the paperwork to the buyer’s solicitors. Where appropriate, your lawyer must also send confirmation that the home loan has been repaid to the purchasers lawyers. There are no post completion steps just for conveyancing in Poynton.
I just bought a house at auction in Poynton. Conveyancing is required. What happens now?
Given that you have now exchanged you now have to instruct a conveyancing solicitor soon as you will have a tight deadline in which to complete the transaction. All auction property will ordinarily have a corresponding auction set of papers. This will include evidence of title and search results. Where you are dealing with leasehold property the conveyancing pack may contain a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing paperwork specific to leasehold premises. You should hand this to the lawyer working for you ASAP. Do make sure that that you have the requisite funding in order to complete on the date specified in the contract.
I am buying a property in Poynton. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Clydesdale have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Clydesdale your lawyer must follow the conveyancing instructions contained in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Clydesdale. The CML Handbook includes minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to Clydesdale where a lease fails to meet these specifications. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not restricted to Poynton.
My offer was accepted on a property in Poynton on 17/10/2023, valuation was booked 2 days later, all came back fine. Solicitor instructed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Aldermore and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?
A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Aldermore to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
five months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Poynton concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 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 asset 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.
