Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Beaufort

Finally the sale completed on my house in Beaufort last December but our buyer keeps Skype messaging every few hours to say their conveyancer needs to hear from mine. What should have happened now that I have sold?

Following your sale your solicitor is obliged to forward the transfer deeds and all supplemental paperwork to the buyer’s solicitors. Where appropriate, your lawyer should also confirm that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been repaid to the purchasers solicitors. There is unlikely to be post completion steps specific conveyancing in Beaufort.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unexperienced as a first time buyer of a garden flat in Beaufort. Do I receive the keys to the property on completion from my conveyancer? If this is the case, I will use a local conveyancing solicitor in Beaufort?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the purchase money to the seller's lawyers, and once they have received this, you should be called to receive the keys from the property Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen early afternoon.

Having read lots 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 Beaufort solicitor - who is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?

Virgin Money will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Virgin Money 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 lawyer 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 Beaufort postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Virgin Money, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Beaufort.

My offer on a property in Beaufort has been accepted, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on a property, but it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other apartments in the pipeline. I have instructed a local conveyancing solicitor in Beaufort. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with UBS started?

It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is approx £1k, then valuation, Beaufort conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you must check that your conveyancer is on the UBS conveyancing panel. Concerning the subsequent phase this very much depends on the circumstances of your case, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. During a rising market some home buyers will apply for the mortgage with UBS and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their property lawyer to move forward with searches.

I require fast conveyancing in Beaufort as I am faced with an ultimatum to exchange contracts inside 2 weeks. Thankfully I do not need a mortgage. Can I avoid the conveyancing searches to save fees and time?

As you are not getting a home loan you have the choice not to do searches although no lawyer would suggest that you don't. Drawing on years of experience of conveyancing in Beaufort the following are instances of what can appear and adversely affect the marketability of the property: Enforcement Actions, Overdue Fees, Outstanding Grants, Railway Schemes,...

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified during conveyancing in Beaufort?

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Beaufort. 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…’

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one close by in Beaufort I like with open areas and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Beaufort suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.

I am considering choosing an online solicitor ahead of a Beaufort conveyancing firm. Should I ‘stay local’?

Advantages do exist in being able to attend a local Beaufort conveyancing solicitor for instance

  • signing papers on short notice
  • sometimes being able to speak to someone face-to-face can make a significant difference, particularly for more complex house moves
  • the ability to raise concerns if matters need to addressed

When comparing fees, look carefully for hidden extras. The majority decent Beaufort high street solicitors give an all-inclusive figure. Often online agents appear to offer low cost fees, but have hidden 'extras' in the small print.
