Me and my partner are purchasing an apartment in Todmorden. My lawyer is not on the lender conveyancing panel. Can I still continue with my Todmorden conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the lender panel?
You must appoint a conveyancing practitioner to complete the legal work required if you require a loan to buy your home. The conveyancer will conduct all the necessary investigations on the property, ensuring that you’re registered as proprietor and ensure that all the required mortgage documentation is in order. One may select a Todmorden conveyancing practitioner of your choosing. However, where the property lawyer selected is not on the bank approved list additional costs will be incurred as separate legal representation will be need by the bank. Lender panel applications can be submitted, so if your lawyer has not historically applied for membership they should take the opportunity to apply.
My wife and I are acquiring a newly built apartment in Todmorden and my solicitor is informing me that she has to the bank to disclose incentives from the seller. The Estate Agents are hassling me to exchange contracts and I would rather not delay deal. Is my lawyer right?
You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your conveyancer. A precondition to being on a lender panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.
I completed on my apartment on 12 April and my personal details is yet to be registered. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Todmorden expressed confidence that it should be concluded in a couple of weeks. Are titles in Todmorden uniquely lengthy to register?
As far as conveyancing in Todmorden registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ according to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry have to notify any 3rd parties. Currently in the region of 80% of such applications are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive delays. Historically registration is effected after the new owner has moved in to the premises so an expedited registration is not typically top priority yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Todmorden is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can give?
Flying freeholds in Todmorden are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Todmorden you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Todmorden may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
