Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Belton

My wife and I are refinancing our flat in Belton with Bank of Ireland. We have a son 19 who lives at home. Our solicitor requested us to identify any adults other than ourselves who reside at the property. The solicitor has now sent a form for our son to sign, giving up any rights in the event that the flat is forfeited by the lender. I have two concerns (1) Is this document specific to the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel as he did not need to sign this form when we bought 4 years ago (2) Does our son by signing this compromise his entitlement to inherit the property?

First, rest assured that your Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel solicitor is doing the right thing as it is established procedure for any occupier who is aged 17 or over to sign the necessary Consent Form, which is purely to state that any rights he has in the property are postponed and secondary to Bank of Ireland. This is solely used to protect Bank of Ireland if the property were re-possessed so that in such circumstances, your son would be legally obliged to leave. It does not impact your son’s right to inherit the apartment. Please note that if your son were to inherit and the mortgage in favour of Bank of Ireland had not been discharged, he would be liable to take over the loan or pay it off, but other than that, there is nothing stopping him from keeping the property in accordance with your will or the rules of intestacy.

In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Belton? Why is this being asked of me?

You are right in the requirement set out by your lawyer has nothing to do with conveyancing in Belton. Nowadays you will not be able to proceed with any conveyancing transaction without first handing over evidence of your identity. This usually takes the form of a either your passport or driving licence plus a bank statement. Remember if you are supplying your driving licence as evidence of ID it needs to be both the paper part and photo card part, one is not satisfactory in the absence of the other.

Proof of the source of money is required in accordance with the Money Laundering Regulations. Please do not be offended when you are asked to produce this as your lawyer must have this information on file. Your Belton conveyancing solicitor will need to see evidence of proof of funds prior to accepting any monies from you into their client account and they will also ask additional questions regarding the source of monies.

Having invested time reading online forums for an affordable solicitor in Belton, many comment that I must instruct a CQS kitemarked solicitor. What is CQS?

The Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) provides a kitemark for residential conveyancing practices issued by the Law Society. Membership achievement establishes a level of credibility for member firms with stakeholders (regulators, lenders, insurers and consumers) based upon: * the integrity of the senior responsible officer and other key conveyancing staff * the firm's adherence to good practice management standards * adherence to prudent and efficient conveyancing procedures via the scheme protocol Membership covers numerous partnerships who handle conveyancing in Belton.

I am buying a new build house in Belton with the aid of help to buy. The developers would not budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The estate agent told me not disclose to my conveyancer about this deal as it would affect my mortgage with the lender. 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.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Belton is where the house is located. Can you offer any guidance?

Flying freeholds in Belton are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Belton you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Belton may ascertain 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 residence.

I today plan to offer on a house that seems to tick a lot of boxes, at a reasonable price which is making it all the more appealing. I have subsequently discovered that the title is leasehold rather than freehold. I would have thought that there are issues buying a leasehold house in Belton. Conveyancing advisers have not yet been instructed. Will my lawyers set out the implications of buying a leasehold house in Belton ?

Most houses in Belton are freehold and not leasehold. In this scenario it’s worth having a local conveyancer used to dealing with such properties who can assist with the conveyancing process. We note that you are purchasing in Belton in which case you should be looking for a Belton conveyancing solicitor and check that they have experience in transacting on leasehold houses. First you will need to check the unexpired lease term. As a leaseholder you will not be at liberty to do whatever you want to the property. The lease will likely included provisions for example obtaining the freeholder’sconsent to carry out alterations. It may be necessary to pay a contribution towards the upkeep of the communal areas where the house is part of an estate. Your lawyer will report to you on the legal implications.

I purchased a studio flat in Belton, conveyancing was carried out October 1998. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Comparable properties in Belton with over 90 years remaining are worth £191,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 per annum. The lease ends on 21st October 2078

With only 54 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to span between £31,400 and £36,200 plus costs.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
