I had a mortgage agreed in principle with Co-operative. Wigton conveyancing solicitors have been instructed. How long does it take for Co-operative to forward the offer to the conveyancing practitioner?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Co-operative done the survey? Have you advised Co-operative as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Co-operative conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Clydesdale. Is it usual for Clydesdale to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Wigton is approved on their conveyancing panel? Clydesdale have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.

A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Clydesdale to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I bought my home on 12 October and the transaction details is yet to be registered. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Wigton advises it should be registered inside ten days. Are transfers in Wigton uniquely lengthy to register?

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Wigton registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust subject to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any other parties. Currently approximately 80% of submission are fully dealt with within 12 days but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Historically registration is effected once the purchaser has moved in to the property so 'speed' is not always top priority but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor must speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Wigton is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Wigton are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Wigton you must be sure that your lawyer goes 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 Wigton 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 residence.

Why am I unable to complete our conveyancing in Wigton on a bank holiday?

Because on completion the funds needs to be transferred electronically between the banks of the buyer and owner’s conveyancer and at present this can only occur on a working day. So you can't complete on a weekend either.
