Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Aspley Guise

All was ready to move into my new home in Aspley Guise next Thursday. My conveyancer now wants me to supply her with proof of content and building insurance for the property as he says that he has to check this in his capacity as lawyer for the lender. What does the insurance need to cover?

All property lawyers on acting for lenders would need to check that the following risks are covered fire; lightning; aircraft; explosion; earthquake; storm; flood; escape of water or oil; riot; malicious damage; theft or attempted theft; falling trees and branches and aerials; subsidence; heave;landslip;collision;accidental damage to underground services;professional fees, demolition and site clearance costs; and public liability to anyone else. There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook instructions. These requirements are not unique to conveyancing in Aspley Guise.

The Aspley Guise conveyancing firm that just started acting on my house acquisition in Aspley Guise have without warning closed. They were on acting for me because I needed a lawyer on the Nationwide conveyancing panel and my preferred Aspley Guise lawyer was not. I wrote them a cheque for two hundred pounds in advance. What should be my next steps?

If you have an estate agent involved then inform them immediately so that they advise the vendors that there may be a slight delay due to the problems encountered. Most sellers would be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You should appoint new lawyers that are on the Nationwide conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new solicitors may be able to help.

I am purchasing a property in Aspley Guise. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Yorkshire BS be concerned?

Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Yorkshire BS your lawyer must follow the formal requirements contained in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Yorkshire BS. The CML Handbook sets out minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and solicitors are required to report to Yorkshire BS where a lease fails to meet these conditions. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not restricted to Aspley Guise.

I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in February 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Coventry BS are being problematic. The Aspley Guise solicitor who is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Coventry BS are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Coventry BS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Coventry BS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Coventry BS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

Having digested plenty of house buying guides, I note that they all recommend that you should get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Aspley Guise solicitor - who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?

Clydesdale will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Clydesdale will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Aspley Guise surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

I need some expedited conveyancing in Aspley Guise as I am faced with pressure to exchange contracts within 3 weeks. Luckily I do not require a mortgage. Can I avoid the conveyancing searches to save money and time?

As you are are a mortgage free buyer you have the choice not to have searches conducted although no solicitor would advise that you don't. With plenty of history conveyancing in Aspley Guise the following are examples of issues that can arise and therefore affect future saleability: Enforcement Actions, Overdue Charges, Overdue Grants, Road Schemes,...

I’m about to sell my garden apartment in Aspley Guise. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, but I have recently had a quarterly maintenance charge demand – Do I pay up?

It best that you pay the invoice as normal because all rents and maintenance charges will be apportioned on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until 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. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
