I am told that my conveyancing solicitors will need to check that the building insurance when buying a house in Ashton. My lender is The Mortgage Works

The Mortgage Works have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook. As of 9/1/2021, the requirements read as follows :

I just bought a house at auction in Ashton. Conveyancing is needed. What are my next steps?

Now that you are exchanged you must hire the services of a conveyancing lawyer as a matter of priority as you are facing a pending deadline in which to complete the purchase. All auction property should have a corresponding legal set of papers. This will include the copy title deeds, local authority and drainage searches. Where you are dealing with leasehold premises the conveyancing pack should contain a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing documentation relating to a leasehold property. You need to pass this on to the solicitor working for you as soon as possible. You also need to ensure that you have funds organised to complete on the on the contractual date .

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as FTB of a ground floor flat in Ashton. Do I collect the keys to the property on the completion date from my solicitor? If so, I will appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Ashton?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will electronically transfer the completion advance to the vendor’s conveyancers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be invited to receive the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this happens early afternoon.

Is it correct that all Ashton CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Skipton conveyancing list of approved firms?

A selection of banks and building societies now utilise CQS as the kick off point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. CQS membership however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for firms wishing to remain on their approved list of firms.

Me and my brother have a terraced Georgian house in Ashton. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Birmingham Midshires. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the matching address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Ashton and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also check the position with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the work.

I am buying my first flat in Ashton with a mortgage from National Westminster Bank. The sellers would not move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The property agent told me not disclose to my solicitor about this extras as it will put at risk my loan with the lender. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Ashton is the location of the property. Is there any guidance you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Ashton are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Ashton you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Ashton may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
