My lawyer has discovered a a problem with the lease for the property we are purchasing in Alsager. The seller’s lawyers have offered title insurance as a workaround. We are content with insurance and will cover the costs. Our solicitor says that he must check that the lender is willing to move forward with this solution. Are we the client or is the lender?

Notwithstanding that you have a mortgage offer from the lender does not mean to say that the property will meet their requirements for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions. You and the mortgage company are the client. These conveyancing instructions must be adhered to.

Don’t worry too much. Firstly the deeds may be kept by the mortgage company or they could be in the possession of the conveyancers who handled the purchase. Secondly in all probability the land will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers acquiring up to date copy of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Alsager involves registered property but in the rare situation where your property is not registered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.

Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with UBS your lawyer must check the formal instructions set out in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for UBS. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook contains minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and property lawyers are required to report to UBS where a lease does not comply with these requirements. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not restricted to Alsager.

How does conveyancing in Alsager differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Alsager contact us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because developers in Alsager usually buy the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Alsager or who has acted in the same development.
