I instructed a Runcorn based lawyer for my conveyancing in Runcorn yesterday. After carefully reading the small print I seeI am responsible for fees even if the movefalls through. Should I ditch them and select an internet conveyancing brokerage offering no move no charge conveyancing in Runcorn?

The formalities of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Runcorn. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How do I make a complaint?

All lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Department at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are resolved effectively and efficiently. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR with full details of your complaint.

I recently had an offer accepted on a house in Runcorn. My mortgage broker recommended their conveyancers. I paid an upfront payment of £200. Soon after, the conveyancing practitioner contacted me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Nottingham panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

I purchased my flat on 4 August and my personal details are still not on the land registry website. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Runcorn said it should be registered in less than a month. Are titles in Runcorn uniquely lengthy to register?

As far as conveyancing in Runcorn is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust according to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any interested persons or bodies. As of today in the region of three quarters of submission are fully addressed within two weeks but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Registration takes place after the buyer has moved in to the premises thus 'speed' is not typically top priority yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

How does conveyancing in Runcorn differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Runcorn come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because developers in Runcorn typically purchase the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Runcorn or who has acted in the same development.
