Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Brading

I am in the process of selling my maisonette in Brading and the EA has just telephoned to advise that the buyers are appointing a new property lawyer. The excuse is that the mortgage company will only engage with solicitors on their approved list. On what basis would a big named lender only work with certain solicitors rather the firm that they want to choose to handle their conveyancing in Brading ?

Mortgage companies have always had an approved set of law firms they are willing to work with, but in recent years big names such as Yorkshire Building Society, have reviewed and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have acted for them for many years.

Banks point to the increase in fraud by way of justification for the cull – criteria have been tightened as a smaller panel is easier to keep an eye on. Banks tend not to reveal how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society says it is being contacted daily by practices that have been removed from panels. Some do not even realise they have been dropped until contacted by a borrower who has instructed them as might be the situation in your buyers' case. Your purchasers are not going to have any sway in the decision.

I am buying a house without a mortgage in Brading. I have been residing for the previous 20 years in Brading. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. As I know the road and vicinity very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?

In the absence of a home loan, then the vast majority of the Brading conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your solicitor will try and steer you, perhaps strongly, that you should have searches completed, but she has a professional duty to take that path of advice. One thing to take into account; if you are likely to dispose of the house one day, it will be of importance to your future purchaser what the searches reveal. There are plenty of instances where houses with apparent issues can still throw up unexpected search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Brading will provide you some constructive advice here.

Do commercial conveyancing searches reveal planned roadworks that may affect a commercial property in Brading?

Many commercial conveyancing solicitors in Brading will conduct a SiteSolutions Highways report as it dramatically cuts the time that conveyancers spend in looking into accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Brading. The search result sets out definitive data on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Brading.

For each commercial conveyancing transaction in Brading it is critical to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site. The absence of identifying developments where adoption procedures have not been dealt with adequately can cause delays to Brading commercial conveyancing deals as well as pose a risk to future plans for the site. These searches are not carried out for domestic conveyancing in Brading.

We're novice buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the estate agent advised that the owners will only move forward if we use their preferred lawyers as they need a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street conveyancer who is familiar with conveyancing in Brading

It is highly unlikely the sellers are driving this. If they want ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious buyer is not the way to achieve this. Speak to the vendors direct and make the point that (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you are going to use your own,trusted Brading conveyancing lawyers - as opposed tothe ones that will earn the negotiator at the agency a commission or hit his conveyancing thresholds set by head office.

I would like to let out my leasehold apartment in Brading. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask him. Do I need to ask my freeholder for permission?

Even though your last Brading conveyancing lawyer is not around you can check your lease to check if it allows you to sublet the property. The accepted inference is that if the lease is silent, subletting is allowed. Quite often there is a prerequisite that you are obliged to obtain consent from your landlord or other appropriate person before subletting. The net result is you not allowed to sublet without first obtaining consent. Such consent should not be unreasonably refused ore delayed. If your lease does not allow you to sublet you will need to ask your landlord if they are willing to waive this restriction.

Brading Leasehold Conveyancing - A selection of Questions you should consider Prior to Purchasing

    This question is important as a) areas may result in problems for the building as the common areas may begin to deteriorate if maintenance are not paid for b) if the tenants have an issue with the running of the building you will want to have complete disclosure How is the lease structured? How many of the leaseholders are in arrears for their service charge payments?

I am short of a 10% deposit on my house purchase in Brading , but I still want to proceed. Do I have options?

One option is to try and agree a lower deposit. Many vendors will agree to a smaller deposit or even no deposit for a first time buyer or 100% mortgage. Be aware though that if you fail to complete you will still need to hand over a minimum of 10% of the purchase price regardless of how much deposit was agreed.

You can also agree a simultaneous exchange and completion as no deposit is required for this however neither party will be tied in until completion actually takes place and it can be risky if sellers change their mind at the last minute
