Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as FTB of a ground floor flat in Belmont. Do I pick up the keys to the house on the completion date from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Belmont?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will electronically transfer the purchase money to the seller's conveyancers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be invited to receive the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this occurs between 1 and 3pm.
Is it the case that all Belmont solicitor practices on the Aldermore conveyancing panel are regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As solicitors, in order to be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel they would need to be regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. The majority of banks do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such firms would be regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
Our offer on a detached house in Belmont has been accepted, but there is a chain. The sellers have placed an offer on a property, however it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other properties booked. I have instructed a high street conveyancing solicitor in Belmont. What should be my next step? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with Santander?
It is understandable to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, Belmont conveyancing search costs, etc). The first course of action is to ensure that your property lawyer is on the Santander conveyancing panel. Concerning the subsequent phase this very much depends on the circumstances of your case, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market the majority of home buyers will apply for a home loan with Santander and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their conveyancer to press on with the conveyancing in Belmont.
I am purchasing my first flat in Belmont with the aid of help to buy. The builders refused to budge the amount so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The sale representative suggested that I not inform my lawyer about this deal as it would impact my loan with Alliance & Leicester . Is this normal?.
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.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Belmont is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Belmont are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Belmont you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Belmont may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Belmont. Before diving in I would like to find out the unexpired term of the lease.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Belmont - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
I am the proprietor of a garden flat in Belmont. In the absence of agreement between myself and the freeholder, can the Leasehold valuation Tribunal determine the premium payable for the purchase of the freehold?
Most definitely. We can put you in touch with a Belmont conveyancing firm who can help.
An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement decision for a Belmont property is Buchanan Court 39 Vernon Road in April 2010. the Tribunal assessed that the premium payable for the freehold of the block should be £44,000. This case was in relation to 2 flats. The unexpired term as at the valuation date was 66.67 years.
