We decided to go with a Caerwys based lawyer for my conveyancing in Caerwys yesterday. Reviewing the Terms I noteI am responsible for fees even where the transaction does not complete. Should I go with them or use a web based lawyer advertising no completion no charge conveyancing in Caerwys?
It is usually a trade off in that if "No Sale No Fee" is advertised then the fee levels will tend to be be uplifted to counteract those conveyances that abort. Please beware that such offerings generally do not cover disbursements e.g. Caerwys conveyancing search costs.
I sincerely hope you can help me. My Caerwys conveyancer is assuring me that he has toapply for Caerwys conveyancing searches asthe firm are on the Nat Westconveyancing panel. Is my solicitor right?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. Given that you are taking out a loan with a mortgage company your property lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the CML Handbook provisions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Caerwys conveyancing searches.
My uncle passed away last year and as sole heir and executor I was left the house in Caerwys. The house had a small mortgage left on it of around £4500. I want to have the title changed into my name whilst I re-mortgage to Kent Reliance, pay off the mortgage. Is this allowed?
If you plan to re-mortgage then Kent Reliance will insist on your using a conveyancer on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Here is link to the Land Registry online guidance around what to do when a property owner dies. This will help you to understand the registration process behind changing the details re the registered title. in your case it would appear that you are effectively purchasing the property from the estate. Your Kent Reliance conveyancing panel solicitor pays the new mortgage money into the estate, the estate pays off the old mortgage, the charge is released and you become the owner and the Kent Reliance mortgage is registered as a charge at the Land Registry.
The deeds to my house can not be found. The lawyers who dealt with the conveyancing in Caerwys 4 years ago have long since closed. What are my next steps?
As long as the title is registered the details of your proprietorship will be documented by HMLR under a Title Number. It is possible to perform a search at the Land Registry, locate your house and order up to date copies of the Registered Entries for a small fee. Where the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will usually retain a certified copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be obtained for £20 inclusive of VAT.
