Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Berrylands

I decided to go with a high street firm for my conveyancing in Berrylands recently. Reviewing the Terms I noteI am on the hook for costs even if our purchase aborts. Should I go with them or use a web based conveyancing company who offer no completion no cost conveyancing in Berrylands?

It is usually a trade off in that if "No Sale No Fee" is advertised then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be uplifted to neutralise those transactions that do not proceed. Please beware that these promotions tend not to protect you from expenses for instance Berrylands conveyancing search charges.

I purchased a freehold house in Berrylands yet charged rent, why is this and what is this?

It is rare for properties in Berrylands and has limited impact for conveyancing in Berrylands but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.

Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges date back hundreds of years, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the creation of fresh rentcharges post 1977.

Old rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 is to be dispensed with completely.

What is the difference between a licensed conveyancer and conveyancing solicitor in Berrylands

There are two types of lawyers who can execute conveyancing in Berrylands namely CLC regulated conveyancers or solicitors. The two can handle conveyancing services that required to complete the sale or acquisition of property. Both are obliged to execute Berrylands conveyancing on similar standards and guidelines so you can be safe in the knowledge that your conveyancing will be properly administered and that all requisite steps will be accurately attended to.

I have paid off my mortgage with Coventry BS. I assume I don't need a Berrylands conveyancing practitioner on the Coventry BS panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

If you have finished paying off your Coventry BS mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Coventry BS mortgage from the register. Coventry BS, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Coventry BS has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Coventry BS has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Coventry BS mortgage has been paid off.

The mortgage over my property is with Nottingham for my property in Berrylands. Conveyancing was finalised months ago. If I am intending to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Nottingham?

You must advise Nottingham before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Nottingham’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Nottingham directly. You need not do this via a Nottingham conveyancing panel lawyer.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up during conveyancing in Berrylands?

Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Berrylands. 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 flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Berrylands I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Berrylands for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?

Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.

What are the specific advantages to choosing a high street solicitor in Berrylands

Home movers in Berrylands opt for a nearby high street solicitor so that they can attend the firm’s offices just in case they have concerns, and to execute mortgage deeds rather than run the risk of depending on the Royal Mail.

One could allege that there is a distinct advantage when opting for a lawyer local to the premises you are buying, due to the familiarity of the locality and possible local issues - yet this is moot. The majority of conveyancers are now by way of email and may be based anywhere.
