After reviewing mumsnet.com for a recommended lawyer in Bovey Tracey, many post that I must use a CQS kitemarked solicitor. Can you explain what CQS is?
The Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) provides a recognised quality standard 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 * compliance with best practice conveyancing processes through the scheme protocol It includes numerous firms who perform conveyancing in Bovey Tracey.
My conveyancer has informed me that absentee landlord insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Bovey Tracey?
The right level of absentee landlord indemnity insurance depends on your lender. It would differ for example between Halifax and Skipton Building Society. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to members of the public take out such insurances.
I happen to be the only beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Bovey Tracey. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in January. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a CML six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be considered the same way as though I had purchased the house in January. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The CML handbook requires conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be affected by that. How sensible a view banks take of it, depend on the bank as this obligation is primarily there to identify subsales or the quick reselling of property.
After what seems like an age I have had an offer on a maisonette in Bovey Tracey accepted, but there is a chain. The sellers have offered on on an apartment, however it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other apartments booked. I have chosen a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Bovey Tracey. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with TSB going?
It is understandable to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses too early (home loan application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Bovey Tracey conveyancing search fees, etc). The first course of action is to ensure that your conveyancer is on the TSB conveyancing panel. Regarding the next phase this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your case, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. During a rising market the majority of purchasers would apply for a home loan with TSB and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their conveyancer to press on with searches.
My wife and I are downsizing from our property in Bovey Tracey and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. A local conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers used an internet conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Bovey Tracey. Having lived in Bovey Tracey for six years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to seek clarification need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm already. What do they say? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)

I am intending to rent out my leasehold apartment in Bovey Tracey. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask him. Do I need to ask my freeholder for permission?
A lease governs relations between the landlord and you the leaseholder; in particular, it will indicate if subletting is banned, or permitted but only subject to certain conditions. The accepted inference is that if the lease contains no specific ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. Most leases in Bovey Tracey do not contain subletting altogether – such a clause would undoubtedly devalue the property.
