Me and my partner are purchasing a apartment in Wynyard. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a lawyer? On the day of competition we will need to deposit our life savings into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our money?
Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.
I happen to be the only beneficiary of my late mum's estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Wynyard. The Wynyard property was put into my name in January. I want to move. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship could be considered the same way as though I had purchased the property in January. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?
The CML handbook requires 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 might be caught by that. How sensible a view banks take of it, depend on the lender as this obligation is chiefly there to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of property.
At last I have had an offer on a flat in Wynyard accepted, the sellers do nevertheless have a connected purchase. The owners have offered on a property, however it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other apartments in the pipeline. I have chosen a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Wynyard. What do I do now? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Santander?
It is usual to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Wynyard conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you should check that your lawyer is on the Santander approved list. As to the next stages this very much depends on the circumstances of your case, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market the majority of buyers would apply for a home loan with Santander and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their lawyer to move forward with searches.

I purchased a house in Wynyard last 22/11/2017 and to date it is still not registered with HMLR. It is part of a development site and my lawyer told me that it may take twelve months to register.
