Are the Wythall conveyancing solicitors identified as being on the Skipton conveyancing panel, together with their details provided by Skipton?
Wythall conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Skipton conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Skipton directly.
We have agreed to purchase a house in Wythall. An unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender UBS be concerned?
As your lender is UBS your lawyer must follow the formal requirements set out in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for UBS. The CML Handbook stipulates minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to UBS where a lease does not meet these requirements. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not restricted to Wythall.
My offer was accepted on a property in Wythall on 24/12/2018, valuation was booked 4 days later, received a clean bill of health. Solicitor appointed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Nationwide and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Nationwide to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
My offer on a semi in Wythall has been accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have placed an offer on a property, however it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other apartments in the pipeline. I have chosen a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Wythall. What do I do now? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with Skipton?
It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Wythall conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you should check that your solicitor is on the Skipton approved list. Concerning the subsequent steps this very much depends on the circumstances of your transaction, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. During a hot market the majority of purchasers will apply for the mortgage with Skipton and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their lawyer to press on with searches.
It has been four months following my purchase conveyancing in Wythall completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
