We were just about to sign contracts for a semi detached house in Rochdale. We encountered a problem. The loan offer with Yorkshire Building Society expires on 21/4/2020 but the sellers are insisting on a completion date of 23/4/2020. Can one extend the mortgage offer?
The person best placed to deal with your concern is your solicitors who should calculate if he or she is corresponding with the mortgage company, owner’s representatives, selling agents or indeed all parties given the history of your conveyancing as of today.

We had selected conveyancers locally in Rochdale on the Virgin Money solicitor panel. They have just billed me a supplemental charge for dealing with the Virgin Money mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Virgin Money?
As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your solicitor can levy a fee for this. The charge is not set by Virgin Money but by your Rochdale lawyer. Plenty of firms on the Virgin Money panel will quote ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but some practices incorporate it on their overall fee.
I have paid off my mortgage with Clydesdale. I assume I don't need a Rochdale conveyancer on the Clydesdale panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your Clydesdale mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Clydesdale mortgage from the register. Clydesdale, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Clydesdale has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Clydesdale has instructed the Land Registry to do so
Clydesdale have agreed my home loan in principle, my offer on a apartment in Rochdale has been accepted, now what?
The property agent will want to know who your solicitors are (ensure that the conveyancers are on the lender’s panel). Telephone Clydesdale or the financial adviser and complete any appropriate documentation. Clydesdale will appoint a valuer who will get in touch with the estate agent or vendor to schedule a slot for the valuation to occur. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes on average a week to get a mortgage offer. Clydesdale will issue the offer to you and your conveyancing practitioners. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Rochdale.
I require expedited conveyancing in Rochdale as I am under pressure to exchange contracts inside 2 weeks. Thankfully I do not require a mortgage. Can I avoid the conveyancing searches to save money and time?
As you are not obtaining a mortgage you have the choice not to have searches conducted although no conveyancer would suggest that you don't. Drawing on our experience of conveyancing in Rochdale the following are examples of what can be revealed and adversely affect future saleability: Refused Planning Applications, Overdue Fees, Outstanding Grants, Unadopted Roads,...
