Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Worsley

The Worsley conveyancing firm handling our Worsley conveyancing has identified an inconsistency when comparing the surveyor’s assumptions in the home valuation report and what is revealed within the conveyancing documents. My solicitor has advised that he needs to check that the lender is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my solicitor’s course or action appropriate?

Your solicitor must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.

As someone clueless as to the Worsley conveyancing process what is your top tip you can give me for the legal transfer of property in Worsley

You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Worsley and elsewhere in Greater Manchester is an adversarial experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists plenty of room for conflict between you and other parties involved in the legal transfer of property. For example, the vendor, selling agent and even potentially a bank. Choosing a lawyer for your conveyancing in Worsley should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY party in the process whose interest is to protect your legal interests and to keep you safe.

There is a worrying emergence of a "blame" culture- someone has to be at fault for the process being so protracted. We recommend that you should always trust your conveyancer above all other players in the home moving process.

My husband and I may need to sub-let our Worsley 1st floor flat for a while due to a career opportunity. We instructed a Worsley conveyancing firm in 2001 but they have since shut and we did not have the foresight to get any guidance as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?

The lease dictates relations between the freeholder and you the flat owner; in particular, it will indicate if subletting is prohibited, or permitted but only subject to certain caveats. The accepted inference is that if the lease contains no specific ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. Most leases in Worsley do not contain an absolute prevention of subletting – such a clause would undoubtedly devalue the flat. Instead, there is usually simply a requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly sending a duplicate of the tenancy agreement.
