I am buying a house and need a conveyancing solicitor in Belvedere who is on the Santander approved. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a conveyancing firm?
Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for Santander in certain locations such as Belvedere. We dont recommend any particular firm.
I am being advised by my solicitor that lack of building regulations insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Belvedere conveyancing?
The right level of lack of building regulations indemnity insurance depends on who your lender is. It would differ for example between Lloyds TSB Bank and Virgin Money. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to members of the public take out such insurances.
We were going to get a OIP from Yorkshire BS this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Yorkshire BS recommend any Belvedere solicitors on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Belvedere solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Yorkshire BS through the process.
Planning on purchasing a apartment in Belvedere. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Belvedere property lawyer is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel.
A relative recommended that where I am buying in Belvedere I should ask my conveyancer to execute a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?
This is a search is usually quoted for as part of the standard Belvedere conveyancing searches. It is a large document of about 40 pages, listing and setting out important information about Belvedere around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Belvedere Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime details, Belvedere Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information regarding Belvedere.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £305k and identified one close by in Belvedere I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Belvedere suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?
If you require a mortgage that many years may be problematic. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
Given that I am about to part with £400,000 on a property in Belvedere I wish to have a conversation with the lawyer regarding thehouse move in advance of appointing the firm. Can this be arranged?
This is something that we recommend - we would be pleased to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the solicitor who will be carrying out your property ownership legalities in Belvedere.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is unique person, not a matter number. The practices that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are calculated and presented to you for residential conveyancing in Belvedere should be the amount on the final invoice that you end up paying.
I need to find a conveyancing solicitor for some conveyancing in Belvedere. I've land on a site which seems to have the perfect solution If there is a chance to get all this stuff completed via phone that would be preferable. Do I need to be wary? What should out be looking out for?
As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
