Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Barlestone

Is it possible for conveyancing in Barlestone to be finalised inside a month?

First, If the seller is applying a tight deadline for your conveyancing we would recommend that your solicitor is familiar with the location as they will benefit local connections and intelligence. It is possible that they could have conducted previoushouses in the same road. You would be best advised to use a Barlestone conveyancing lawyer. Second, be sure that the lawyer is on the lender panel. It is said that nearly one in five of Barlestone conveyancing transactions are held up or jeopardised after discovering a purchaser’s lawyer was not on their banks member panel. This can often result in the legal transfer of property being frustrated by an average of 21 days. It is believed that this issue affects in the region of 100,000 home sales annually. Almost all Barlestone conveyancing practices can not represent certain banks so do check as early as possible.

In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Barlestone? Is this really warranted?

It is indeed that case that the requirement set out by your solicitor has nothing to do with conveyancing in Barlestone. Nowadays you can not proceed with any conveyancing process if you have not supplying evidence of your identity. Ordinarily this takes the form of a either your passport or driving licence plus a council tax bill. Please note that if you are supplying your driving licence as proof of identification it must be both the paper section as well as the photo card part, one is not sufficient without the other.

Evidence of the source of funds is mandated in accordance with the Money Laundering Regulations. You should not be offended when when this is requested of you as your conveyancing solicitor will need to have this information on record. Your Barlestone conveyancing practitioner will require evidence of proof of funds before they are able to accept any funds from you into their client account and they may also ask additional questions concerning the origin of funds.

We are getting a further advance on our home loan from TSB as we intend to conduct alterations to our home in Barlestone. Are we obliged to select a high street Barlestone solicitor on the TSB conveyancing panel to deal with the paperwork?

TSB would not normally instruct a member of their approved list of lawyers to deal with the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the TSB list.

I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in April 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Leeds Building Society are being pedantic. The Barlestone solicitor who is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Leeds Building Society are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Leeds Building Society have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Leeds Building Society have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Leeds Building Society 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 mortgage guides, I note that they all recommend that you should get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Barlestone solicitor - who is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?

Nottingham will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Nottingham 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. Your conveyancer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Barlestone postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Nottingham, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Barlestone.

Should commercial conveyancing searches disclose planned roadworks that may impact a commercial premises in Barlestone?

Many commercial conveyancing solicitors in Barlestone will carry out a SiteSolutions Highways report as it reduces the time that conveyancers expend in researching accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Barlestone. The report provides definitive data on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Barlestone.

For each commercial conveyancing transaction in Barlestone it is critical to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site.

These searches are not ordered for domestic conveyancing in Barlestone.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up as part of conveyancing in Barlestone?

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

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build apartment in Barlestone. Conveyancing is a frightening process 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.

Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Barlestone

    Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Please supply a car parking plan. 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 the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company?
