Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Wynyard

My flat in Wynyard is up for sale and I have a purchaser. Does my lawyer have to be on the Nationwide conveyancing panel in order to deal with paying off my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Nationwide 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 conditions fairly frequently currently.

I am the sole recipient of my late grandmother’s will and I have everything in my name alone, including the my former home in Wynyard. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in June. I plan to dispose of the house. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', meaning my property ownership may be treated the same way as if I'd bought the house in June. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook instructs conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you could be impacted by that. How sensible a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the bank as this obligation principally exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of properties.

Can I be sure that the Wynyard conveyancing solicitor on the RBS panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in Wynyard seeking recommendations is a good starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always recommend that you speak with the solicitor conducting your transaction.

I've read lots of mortgage guides, I note that they all recommend that you should get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Wynyard solicitor - who is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?

Nottingham will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Nottingham will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Wynyard surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

I am downsizing from our property in Wynyard and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. Any local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers used a national conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Wynyard. We have lived in Wynyard for six years we know that this is a non issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to seek confirmation that there is no issue.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. What do they say? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same illness)

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified during conveyancing in Wynyard?

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Wynyard. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

My in 2007. He has been wed, divorced and has recently remarried. He now intends to dispose of the Wynyard property. I think he will simply be asked to provide a copy of his marriage certificates to the property lawyer however he is concerned it could frustrate the home sale. Is it worth updating the Land Registry information for the property?

The is no need to update the register providing you have the proof required to demonstrate how the change of name has come about.

Any purchaser’s solicitor should examine the land registry entries and requisition evidence to establish the name change for instance marriage certificates.
