About to purchase maisonette in Bovey Tracey. 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 Lloyds 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 Bovey Tracey conveyancing practitioner is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel.
After shopping around on the internet I have found a Bovey Tracey conveyancing practitioner having made sure that they are on the HSBC conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
HSBC will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually HSBC 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. You may wish to consider appointing your own Bovey Tracey surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
After what seems like an age I have had an offer on an apartment in Bovey Tracey accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have offered on a flat, however it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other apartments in the pipeline. I have instructed a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Bovey Tracey. What do I do now? At what stage should I apply for the mortgage with Clydesdale?
It is usual to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (mortgage application is approx £1k, then valuation, Bovey Tracey conveyancing search charges, etc). The first thing to do is check that your solicitor is on the Clydesdale approved list. Regarding the next phase this very much dictated by the circumstances of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a rising market the majority of purchasers will apply for the mortgage with Clydesdale and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their solicitor to move forward with searches.

How does conveyancing in Bovey Tracey differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Bovey Tracey contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because developers in Bovey Tracey typically buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Bovey Tracey or who has acted in the same development.

I am intending to sublet my leasehold flat in Bovey Tracey. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask her. Is permission from the freeholder required?
Notwithstanding that your last Bovey Tracey conveyancing lawyer is no longer around you can review your lease to see if you are permitted to let out the property. The accepted inference is that if the lease is non-specific, subletting is allowed. There may be a precondition that you are obliged to seek permission from your landlord or some other party in advance of subletting. The net result is that you cannot sublet in the absence of prior permission. Such consent is not allowed to be unreasonably withheld. If the lease does not allow you to sublet you should ask your landlord for their consent.

Is anyone aware of any major works in the near future that could add a premium to the service fees? Is there a share of the freehold? Many Bovey Tracey leasehold properties will have a service charge for maintenance of the block levied on behalf of the landlord. If you buy the flat you will have to pay this charge, usually quarterly throughout the year.

There will also be a rentcharge to be met annual, this is usually not a large sum, say around £25-£75 but you need to check it because sometimes it can be prohibitively expensive.
