We decided to go with a local firm for our conveyancing in Coalville recently. Going through the Terms and Conditions it is apparent thatI am on the hook for charges even if the sale aborts. Should I go with them or select a web based lawyer offering no completion no cost conveyancing in Coalville?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Completion No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be more expensive to counteract those cases that fail to complete. Dont forget that such promotions rarely cover disbursements for instance Coalville conveyancing search charges.
I have given 2 months notice to my existing landlord and must be out of my rented apartment in Coalville by 12/7/2023. Conveyancing on my purchase is underway. Can I complete in six weeks as I wish to avoid having to find temporary accommodation?
The normal practice is not to serve notice for your lease unless exchange of contracts has taken place. Assuming that you have not already done so, speak to your solicitor and request that they cajole the sellers solicitors, try to get a realistic time scale from them that all parties will work to achieve
I purchased a freehold property in Coalville yet pay rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in Coalville and has limited impact for conveyancing in Coalville 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 fresh rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
Old rentcharges can now be extinguished by making a lump sum payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence in 2037 is to be dispensed with completely.
I have paid off my mortgage with Principality. I assume I don't need a Coalville property lawyer on the Principality panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
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
After months of negotiation I have agreed a price on a house in Coalville. My mortgage broker recommended their conveyancers. I paid an upfront payment of £200. A couple of days later, the conveyancing practitioner contacted me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Skipton conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Skipton panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
About to purchase apartment in Coalville. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the RBS conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Coalville property lawyer is on the RBS conveyancing panel.
I need some expedited conveyancing in Coalville as I have an ultimatum to complete inside 3 weeks. A home loan is not required. Is it possible to escape the need for conveyancing searches to save fees and time?
