Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Brockenhurst

Recently been in touch with my conveyancing solicitor in Brockenhurst who acted for me two years ago requesting a conveyancing quote based on an identical type of house sale & purchase (a leasehold property and a freehold property) of almost identical values with a home loan from Yorkshire Building Society. I am now being charged twice the amount. Should I look for a cheaper online conveyancer?

The charges are a bit high. Where you are happy to invest time contrasting quotes you might get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by as much as £100 plus VAT. On the other hand, providing that you were content with the legal work the firm provided you maycome to regret opting for an an untested conveyancer. Don't forget to be sure the firm can represent Yorkshire Building Society.

My wife and I intend to remortgage our maisonette in Brockenhurst with Nationwide. We have a son approaching twenty who lives with us. Our solicitor has asked us to disclose anyone over the age of 17 other than ourselves who reside at the property. The solicitor has now sent a form for our son to sign, giving up any rights in the event that the apartment is repossessed. I have a couple of concerns (1) Is this document specific to the Nationwide conveyancing panel as he did not need to sign this form when we purchased 4 years ago (2) In signing this form is our son in any way compromising his right to inherit the property?

On the face of it your lawyer has done nothing wrong as it is established procedure for any occupier who is aged 17 or over to sign the necessary Consent Form, which is purely to state that any rights he has in the property are postponed and secondary to Nationwide. This is solely used to protect Nationwide if the property were re-possessed so that in such circumstances, your son would be legally obliged to leave. It does not impact your son’s right to inherit the apartment. Please note that if your son were to inherit and the mortgage in favour of Nationwide had not been discharged, he would be liable to take over the loan or pay it off, but other than that, there is nothing stopping him from keeping the property in accordance with your will or the rules of intestacy.

Do the Building Society Association intend to launch a searchable register to list firms on the Earl Shilton BS conveyancing panel for instance in Brockenhurst?

We would not expect to be advised of any plans on the part of the BSA to promote such a search facility.

How does conveyancing in Brockenhurst differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Brockenhurst approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because developers in Brockenhurst tend to acquire the real estate, 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 property lawyers 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Brockenhurst or who has acted in the same development.
