Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Beaminster

When will exchange of contracts occur in residential conveyancing in Beaminster and do I need to be at the solicitors office?

Where you are local to our conveyancing solicitors in Beaminster you are invited in to sign documents. However, the law practices we recommend offer countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give as equally comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email. The signing of the contract is not the important part. A signed contract is necessary for the solicitor to address the formalities when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a lengthy "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Beaminster)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

About to place a bid on a leasehold flat in Beaminster. The estate agents tell me that it is usual for flats in Beaminster to have less than 75 years left on the lease. I am obtaining a loan with Accord Mortgages. Is this going to be acceptable if the lease has Seventy One years unexpired.

Most leasehold conveyancing experts should be able to deal with a lease extension. if you are securing a mortgage then your lender may insist that the lease be extended before competition. Accord Mortgages have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook in relation to minimum unexpired lease terms. As of 25/6/2022 the requirements read as follows :

85 years from the date of completion of the mortgage. Please ensure that you explain the implications of a short term lease to the borrower.

A relative advised me that in purchasing a property in Beaminster there could be a number of restrictions prohibiting external alterations to a property. Is this right?

We are aware of a number of properties in Beaminster which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to carry out external changes. Part of the conveyancing in Beaminster should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.

We are getting the release of further funds on our home loan from Co-operative as we intend to conduct renovations to our property in Beaminster. Do we need to select a bricks and mortar Beaminster solicitor on the Co-operative conveyancing panel to deal with the paperwork?

Co-operative do not ordinarily appoint a member of their approved list of lawyers to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Co-operative panel.

We were going to get a OIP from Principality this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Principality recommend any Beaminster solicitors on the Principality conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Beaminster solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Principality conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Principality through the process.

I require expedited conveyancing in Beaminster as I am under an ultimatum to complete inside 4 weeks. Fortunately I do not require a mortgage. Can I decline from having conveyancing searches to save money and time?

As you are are a cash purchaser you are at liberty not to have searches carried out although no law firm would suggest that you don't. With plenty of history conveyancing in Beaminster the following are instances of what can be revealed and adversely impact future mortgageability: Enforcement Notices, Overdue Charges, Overdue Grants, Railway Schemes,...

I am buying a new build house in Beaminster with a mortgage from Barclays Direct. The developers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The property agent suggested that I not to tell my solicitor about the side-deal as it will impact my loan with Barclays Direct. Should I keep quiet?.

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.

We're novice buyers - had an offer accepted, but the estate agent told us that the vendor will only go ahead if we use the agent's chosen conveyancers as they want a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Beaminster

We suspect that the owner is unaware of this requirement. Should the seller desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a genuine buyer is not the way to achieve this. Bypass the agents and go straight to the owners and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are genuine buyers (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you are going to use your preferred Beaminster conveyancing solicitors - as opposed tothe ones that will give their estate agent a introducer fee or achieve conveyancing thresholds demanded by HQ.
