Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Aylesbury

I am nearing exchange of contracts for my house in Aylesbury and the EA has just e-mailed to advise that the purchasers are swapping law firm. The reason given is that the mortgage company will only work with property lawyers on their approved list. Why would a leading lender only engage with certain lawyers rather the firm that they want to select for their conveyancing in Aylesbury ?

Banks have always had an approved set of law firms that can represent them, but in the past few years big names such as Nationwide, have considered and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have acted for them for over 25 years.

Mortgage companies point to the increase in fraud by way of justification for the pruning – criteria have been stiffened as a smaller panel is easier to oversee. No lender will say how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society says it is being contacted daily by practices that have been removed from panels. Plenty of firms are unaware that they have been dropped until contacted by a borrower who has instructed them as might be the situation in your buyers' case. The buyers are not going to have any impact on this.

Me and my partner are about to exchange on the purchase of a property in Aylesbury but as a result of wreckage from the recent storms I have was able negotiate recompense from the vendor in the sum of six thousand pounds taking the form of a deduction in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of amending the contract yet Clydesdale are not allowing this. Why were they notified?

Any conveyancer that is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel is required to advise Clydesdale of any variations to the purchase price. If you prohibit your conveyancer to notify the price change to Clydesdale then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Clydesdale and you would have to appoint a new conveyancer for your conveyancing in Aylesbury.

Should commercial conveyancing searches reveal planned roadworks that could affect a commercial estate in Aylesbury?

Its becoming the norm that commercial conveyancing solicitors in Aylesbury will order a SiteSolutions Highways report as it dramatically cuts the time that conveyancers expend in looking into accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Aylesbury.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Aylesbury. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.

    Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier?

I am looking for a flat up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Aylesbury I like with open areas and transport links nearby, however it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Aylesbury in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

I am buying a flat mortgage free. My solicitor has been supplied with with 2 separate forms of photo identification, bank statement, multiple utility bills. Now he needs a copy from a probate lawyer stating that the money is legitimate and that it has come from inheritance and not dealing E's in Ibiza.
