Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Wednesfield

I am selling my house in Wednesfield. Does my property lawyer have to be required to be on the Co-operative conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Co-operative conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their requirements fairly frequently currently.

The mortgage over my property is with Kent Reliance for my property in Wednesfield. Conveyancing was finalised some time ago. In the event that I decide to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Kent Reliance?

Your original mortgage agreement with Kent Reliance will provide that you need their approval before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Kent Reliance’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Kent Reliance directly. You need not do this via a Kent Reliance conveyancing panel firm.

Leeds Building Society have agreed my mortgage in principle, my bid on a apartment in Wednesfield has been agreed to, what are the next steps?

The property agent will need to be advised as to your lawyer's details (ensure that the conveyancers are on the lender’s approved list). Call up Leeds Building Society or your broker and finalise any outstanding paperwork. Leeds Building Society will sellect a valuer who will get in contact with the estate agent or owners to arrange an appointment. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes on average a week to receive the mortgage offer. Leeds Building Society will issue the offer to you and your solicitors. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Wednesfield.

At last I have had an offer on a maisonette in Wednesfield accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have placed an offer on somewhere, however it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other flats in the pipeline. I have selected a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Wednesfield. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Nationwide started?

It is normal to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses prematurely (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Wednesfield conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you must check that your solicitor is on the Nationwide approved list. Regarding the subsequent phase this very much depends on the circumstances of your case, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market many home buyers would apply for a home loan with Nationwide and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their conveyancing practitioner to press on with the conveyancing in Wednesfield.

I used Action Conveyancing several years past for my conveyancing in Wednesfield. Now, I need the documents but the law firm is no longer operating. What do I do?

You should call the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA) to assist in tracking down your conveyancing files. They can be contacted on please contact on 0870 606 2555. Alternatively, you should use their online form to make an enquiry. You will need to provide the SRA with as much information as possible to assist their search, including the name and address in Wednesfield of the conveyancing firm of solicitors you previously instructed, the name of conveyancing solicitor with whom you had dealings, and the date on which you last had dealings with the firm.

How does conveyancing in Wednesfield differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Wednesfield contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because new home sellers in Wednesfield tend to acquire the land, 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 conveyancers 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Wednesfield or who has acted in the same development.

I have checked your search tool I can't find the lawyer I was hoping to instruct as being on the lender conveyancing panel. My lawyer has said that they are on the lender approved panel. How can I be sure given that they are not listed on your directory?

Not all firms are yet listed on our lender panel search tool which is still relatively new. Law firms are listing on a daily basis and it is probably the case that your lawyer is on the bank conveyancing lawyer and you should probably take them at their word. Please do feel free to suggest that they completing their listing on our site as it would only cost them £1 a month to list themselves as being on the bank solicitor panel.
