When looking at moneysavingexpert.com for a high-quality solicitor in Chesham Bois, many post that I must instruct a CQS assured lawyer. What is CQS?
The Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme is the recognised quality mark for legal experts in the legal transfer of properties, trusted by some of the UK's major banks. In 2011-12 the Conveyancing Quality Scheme was officially recognised by the Legal Ombudsman. The scheme does not cover licenced conveyancers. Chesham Bois is one of the numerous areas of the UK where there are Accredited lawyers.
I am the sole beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Chesham Bois. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in July. I plan to dispose of the house. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship could be treated the same way as though I had purchased the house in July. Is the property unsalable for six months?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook mandates conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be affected by that. How practical a view lenders take of it, depend on the lender as this provision chiefly exists to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.
How can we tell if a Chesham Bois conveyancing solicitor on the Aldermore panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Chesham Bois seeking recommendations is a sensible starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always advise that you speak with the lawyer conducting your conveyancing.
I can not work out if my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have telephoned my Chesham Bois bank branch on various occasions and was told it wasn't a problem and they would lend. My Chesham Bois conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned and was told they refuse to lend in accordance with their published requirements. Who do I believe?
As long as the solicitor is on the lender approved list, she or he must adhere to the CML Handbook conditions for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank 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 lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
three months have elapsed following my purchase conveyancing in Chesham Bois concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
