Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Comberton

Some advice if I may. My Comberton solicitor is informing me me that he has toconduct Comberton conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the HSBCsolicitor panel. These Comberton searches cost a lot of money can this be avoided?

You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a mortgage company your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your property lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the CML Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Comberton conveyancing searches.

What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Comberton? What am I being asked for?

It is indeed that case that the requirement set out by your solicitor has nothing to do with conveyancing in Comberton. However these days you will not be able to proceed with any conveyancing transaction in the absence providing proof of your identity. This usually takes the form of a either your passport or driving licence and a bank statement. Please note that if you are supplying your driving licence as evidence of ID it must be both the paper part and photo card part, one is not acceptable in the absence of the other.

Verification of your source of monies is required under Money Laundering Regulations. Please do not be offended when you are asked to produce this as your lawyer will need to have this information on file. Your Comberton conveyancing lawyer will need to see evidence of proof of funds before they are able to accept any monies from you into their client account and they should also ask further queries concerning the origin of funds.

I'm purchasing my first flat in Comberton benefiting from help to buy. The builders would not move on the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The sale representative advised me not to tell my conveyancer about the side-deal as it could adversely affect my mortgage with Britannia. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Comberton prior to appointing lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. The surveyor advised that some lenders tend refuse to give a loan on a flying freehold home.

It depends who your proposed lender is. HSBC has different instructions for example to Halifax. If you contact us we can check via the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Comberton. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Comberton to see if the conveyancing will be more expensive.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Comberton. Before diving in I would like to find out the unexpired term of the lease.

Assuming the lease is registered - and most are in Comberton - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I own a split level flat in Comberton, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Equivalent flats in Comberton with over 90 years remaining are worth £201,000. The ground rent is £45 yearly. The lease ceases on 21st October 2086

With 64 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £14,300 and £16,400 plus legals.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.

I am just shy of a 10% deposit on my house purchase in Comberton , but I am anxious proceed. What can I do?

One option is to try and accept a lesser deposit. Most sellers will agree to a lower deposit or even no deposit for a first time buyer or 100% mortgage. Be aware though that if you fail to complete you will still need to hand over a minimum of 10% of the purchase price regardless of how much deposit was agreed.

You can also agree a simultaneous exchange and completion as no deposit is required for this however neither party will be tied in until completion actually takes place and it can be risky if sellers change their mind at the last moment
