I am assisting my aunt sell her house in Buckinghamshire. Will the conveyancer commission the energy performance certificate or it is for the owner to coordinate?
After the abolition of Home Information Packs, energy assessments remained a mandatory element of moving property. An energy assessment should be commissioned prior to the property being marketed. This is not as aspect of the sale process that solicitors ordinarily arrange. If you are using a Buckinghamshire conveyancing practitioner they may be willing to arrange energy performance certificates due to their contacts with reputable Buckinghamshire assessors
I have paid off my mortgage with Principality. I assume I don't need a Buckinghamshire conveyancing practitioner on the Principality panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your Principality mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Principality mortgage from the register. Principality, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Principality has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Principality has instructed the Land Registry to do so
I can not work out if my lender requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Buckinghamshire building society branch on various occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My Buckinghamshire conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they refuse to lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?
Your solicitor has to follow the CML Handbook section two provisions for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender 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 left on the lease.
I have justbeen informed that Wolstenholmes have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Buckinghamshire for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 12 months ago. How can I establish that my home is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?
The easiest method to see if the premises is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Buckinghamshire conveyancing specialists.
I am purchasing a new build house in Buckinghamshire with the aid of help to buy. The builders would not budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The sale representative advised me not disclose to my lawyer about this extras as it may impact my loan with the lender. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
In what way does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my business premises in Buckinghamshire and how can your lawyers assist?
The particular law that you refer to affords protection to commercial tenants, giving them the dueness to apply to court for a continuation of occupancy when the lease comes to an end. There are limited grounds where a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are complex. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing firms who use the act to your advantage and handle your commercial conveyancing in Buckinghamshire
I am 18 days into a residential purchase having been directed to a firm by the estate agent to do our conveyancing in Buckinghamshire. I am not happy. Could you help me find new lawyers?
A lawyer would have to be very poor to suggest replacing them. Has your mortgage been sent? In the event that it has you must advise them of the new solicitor and ensure the offer are re-sent. Your new conveyancer should be on the lenders panel to avoid escalating charges and complications. That should be your starting point.
