Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Victoria Dock

We are a couple about to exchange contracts for a semi detached house in Victoria Dock. We encountered a stumbling block. The mortgage offer with Santander runs out on 5/12/2022 but the vendors are suggesting a completion date of 7/12/2022. Can one prolong the loan offer?

The best person to address this concern is your conveyancer who is in a position to calculate whether they better off negotiating with the lender, owner’s lawyers, selling agents or indeed all three based on the history of your conveyancing to date.

When it comes to mortgage companies such as Coventry BS, do Victoria Dock conveyancers incur a yearly amount to be on the list of approved solicitors?

I have paid off my mortgage with Nationwide. I assume I don't need a Victoria Dock lawyer on the Nationwide panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

If you have finished paying off your Nationwide 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 Nationwide mortgage from the register. Nationwide, 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:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Nationwide has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Nationwide has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Nationwide mortgage has been paid off.

Intending to buy a apartment in Victoria Dock. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Victoria Dock lawyer is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Victoria Dock is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Victoria Dock 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 Victoria Dock you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Victoria Dock may determine 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 property.
