I can not work out if my bank requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Brixton bank branch on various occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they will lend. My Brixton conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they refuse to lend based on their published requirements. I have no idea who is right.
Your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with the CML Handbook section two provisions for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Leeds Building Society. Is it usual for Leeds Building Society to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Brixton is approved on their conveyancing panel? Leeds Building Society have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Leeds Building Society to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
Nationwide have agreed my home loan in principle, my bid on a apartment in Brixton has been accepted, what are the next steps?
The estate agent will need to know who your solicitors are (make sure the solicitors are on the lender’s panel). Telephone Nationwide or the broker and finish off any relevant paperwork. Nationwide will appoint a valuer who will get in contact with the selling agent or vendor to schedule a slot for the valuation to take place. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes on average ten days for the mortgage offer to be issued. Nationwide will send the offer to you and your conveyancers. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Brixton.
Should our lawyer be raising enquiries concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Brixton.
Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers conducting conveyancing in Brixton. There are those who purchase a house in Brixton, completely expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical destruction, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or sell the premises. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.
Lawyers are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a numerous searches that may be undertaken by the buyer or by their conveyancers which can give them a better understanding of the risks in Brixton. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms given to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a usual inquiry of the seller to determine whether the premises has suffered from flooding. If the premises has been flooded in past which is not notified by the owner, then a buyer could commence a legal claim for losses as a result of such an misleading reply. A buyer’s solicitors may also commission an environmental search. This will reveal whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, additional investigations should be carried out.
We are 3 weeks into a leasehold purchase having been directed to solicitors by the selling agent to carry out the conveyancing in Brixton. We are not happy. Could you help me find new conveyancers?
They would need to be really poor in order to consider replacing them. Has your loan offer been sent? If so you must inform them of the new contact details and have the mortgage documents are re-sent. The conveyancer should be on the mortgage company approved list to avoid added charges and frustration. So that should be your starting point.
