I am hoping to complete my purchase in Cheetham Hill next Friday. 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 bank. What does the insurance need to cover?
All property lawyers 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 UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. These requirements are not limited to conveyancing in Cheetham Hill.
We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The lender mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to instruct their panel solicitor as I would much rather appoint a specialised conveyancing solicitor in Cheetham Hill?
Do check but the chances are that appoint one of their panel solicitors should you want the "fee-free" offer. Speak to the lender and see if they allow a monetary alternative. Some lenders have previously offered a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case you could put that amount towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor near Cheetham Hill.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to my property are lost. The solicitors who did the conveyancing in Cheetham Hill 5 years ago are no longer around. What are my options?
As long as you have a registered title the details of your proprietorship will be documented by HMLR under a Title Number. It is easy to execute a search at the Land Registry, find your house and order up to date copies of the property title for less than a fiver. If the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will usually hold a file duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be retrieved for £20 inclusive of VAT.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Cheetham Hill I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Cheetham Hill suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
Looking forward to complete next month on a leasehold property in Cheetham Hill. Conveyancing solicitors inform me that they report fully on Monday. What should I be looking out for?
