Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Chadderton

All was ready to move into my new home in Chadderton next Thursday. I have now been asked to send a copy of my building insurance schedule by my solicitor as he says that he has to check this in his capacity as lawyer for the mortgage company. What risks does the mortgage company expect the insurance to cover?

Any lawyer on acting for mortgage companies would need to check that the following risks are covered fire; lightning; aircraft; explosion; earthquake; storm; flood; escape of water or oil; riot; malicious damage; theft or attempted theft; falling trees and branches and aerials; subsidence; heave;landslip;collision;accidental damage to underground services;professional fees, demolition and site clearance costs; and public liability to anyone else. There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s Part 2 instructions. These requirements are not limited to conveyancing in Chadderton.

I own a freehold property in Chadderton yet pay rent, why is this and what is this?

It’s unusual for properties in Chadderton and has limited impact for conveyancing in Chadderton but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.

Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges date back hundreds of years, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the establishment of new rentcharges from 1977 onwards.

Previous rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 is to be extinguished.

Can you help - my lawyer advises that absentee landlord insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Chadderton?

The appropriate level of absentee landlord indemnity insurance should be dictated by who your lender. It would differ for example between National Westminster Bank and Coventry Building Society. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to borrowers take out such policies.

I can not fathom if my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Chadderton bank branch on a couple of occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My Chadderton conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called and was told they refuse to lend based on their published requirements. Who do I believe?

Provided that the lawyer is on the lender approved list, they must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook conditions for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company 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 mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

At last I have had an offer on an apartment in Chadderton agreed to, but there is a chain. The sellers have offered on on an apartment, however it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other apartments in the pipeline. I have chosen a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Chadderton. What do I do now? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with Santander?

It is understandable to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Chadderton conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you should check that your lawyer is on the Santander conveyancing panel. Concerning the subsequent stages this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your transaction, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market some purchasers would apply for the mortgage with Santander and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their conveyancing practitioner to move forward with searches.

Just bought a terraced house in Chadderton , how long will it take for the Land Registry to register my ownership? My Chadderton conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be certain that my name is registered.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Chadderton registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ according to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry communicate with any 3rd persons or bodies. At present approximately 80% of such applications are fully addressed within 12 days but occasionally there can be longer delays. Registration takes place once the purchaser is living at the premises thus an expedited registration is not typically an essential issue yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on last month in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Chadderton is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
