Our solicitor has uncovered a a legal deficiency with the lease for the apartment we are buying in Wilmslow. The other side have put forward defective title insurance as a solution. We are content with insurance and will pay for it. Our conveyancer says that he must be satisfied that the bank is willing to move forward with this solution. Are we the client or is the lender?
Regardless of the fact that you have a mortgage offer from the bank does not mean to say that the property will meet their provisions for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions. You and the mortgage company are the client. These conveyancing instructions have to be complied with.

How does conveyancing in Wilmslow differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Wilmslow come to us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because developers in Wilmslow usually buy the real estate, 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Wilmslow or who has acted in the same development.
