Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Aldermanbury

I am thinking of refinancing my apartment in Aldermanbury, does my lawyer have to be on the Santander Conveyancing panel?

In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Santander conveyancing panel, but Santander would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same transaction.

Please help - my lawyer says that restrictive coveneant insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Aldermanbury?

The right level of restrictive coveneant indemnity insurance depends on your lender. It would differ for example between Birmingham Midshires and Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to members of the public take out such insurances.

I'm at the point of viewing flats in Aldermanbury and I am about to put in an offer. Is it premature to have a solicitor in place? I intend to finance via a mortgage with Yorkshire BS.

It would be sensible to start your search sooner rather than later. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their details on to the selling agent. Given that you are getting a mortgage with Yorkshire BS, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.

I recently had an offer accepted on a house in Aldermanbury. My mortgage broker recommended their conveyancers. I paid an upfront payment of £200. Shortly after, the solicitor contacted me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Barclays conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Barclays panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

Will our lawyer be raising enquiries concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Aldermanbury.

Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors dealing with homes in Aldermanbury. Some people will buy a house in Aldermanbury, fully aware that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable building insurance, or dispose of the property. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.

Conveyancers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, however there are a numerous searches that can be carried out by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which will give them a better understanding of the risks in Aldermanbury. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms sent to a buyer’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a usual inquiry of the owner to determine if the property has ever been flooded. In the event that the property has been flooded in past which is not notified by the vendor, then a buyer may commence a legal claim for losses as a result of such an misleading answer. A purchaser’s solicitors should also commission an enviro report. This should disclose whether there is any known flood risk. If so, additional investigations should be made.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified as part of conveyancing in Aldermanbury?

Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Aldermanbury. 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…’

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Aldermanbury I like with a park and station in the vicinity, however it only has 52 years on the lease. There is not much else in Aldermanbury in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my basement apartment in Aldermanbury.Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed but I have just received a quarterly maintenance charge demand – Do I pay up?

It best that you clear the maintenance contribution as usual because all rents and maintenance invoices will be allottedas part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially
