My brother-in-law has suggested I instruct a conveyancing solicitor in Crayford. I I am struggling to find out if they are accepted on the Accord Mortgages Ltd conveyancing panel. Can you or the lender confirm if they are on the panel?
The first thing to do is e-mail the solicitor and ask them if they are on the lender panel. Alternatively you can get in touch with Accord Mortgages Ltd who may be able to confirm.
I am helping my niece sell her flat in Crayford. Will the conveyancing solicitor arrange the energy assessment or should I organise this?
After the abolition of Home Information Packs, EPC’s became a mandatory component of selling a property. An energy performance certificate should be commissioned before the property is advertised. This is not a task that solicitors normally arrange. If you are instructing a Crayford conveyancing practitioner they may be willing to arrange energy assessments given their contacts with long established Crayford providers
We expect to receive a DIP from Principality this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Principality recommend any Crayford solicitors on the Principality conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Crayford solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Principality conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Principality through the process.
Having read lots of mortgage guides, I note that they all recommend that you should get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Crayford solicitor - who is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?
Leeds Building Society will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Leeds Building Society will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Crayford surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
I require fast conveyancing in Crayford as I am faced with an ultimatum to sign on the dotted line in less than one month. Fortunately I do not require a mortgage. Can I escape the need for conveyancing searches to save money and time?
If.Given you are are a cash buyer you are at free not to do searches although no conveyancer would suggest that you don't. Drawing on years of experience of conveyancing in Crayford the following are examples of issues that can arise and therefore impact future saleability: Refused Planning Applications, Overdue Charges, Overdue Grants, Road Schemes,...
I'm refinancing my primary property to a BTL loan with Santander and intend to use the remaining equity as a down payment on further house. The location we are interested in is Crayford. Will your lawyers be able to act for both sets of banks and link together the two deals?
Do use our search tool on this page to ensure that the conveyancers are approved by both lenders. Having checked that they are the solicitor should be able to connect the two conveyancing matters but you should talk with you conveyancer and communicate your expectations and requirements.
I need to find a conveyancing solicitor for my conveyancing in Crayford. I happened to stumble across a web site which looks to be the ideal answer If it is possible to get all this stuff done via email that would be preferable. Should I be concerned? What should out be looking out for?
As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
I am a negotiator for a busy estate agency in Crayford where we have witnessed a number of leasehold sales put at risk as a result of short leases. I have received conflicting advice from local Crayford conveyancing firms. Please can you clarify whether the vendor of a flat can initiate the lease extension process for the buyer?
Provided that the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the proposed purchaser need not have to wait 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed prior to, or at the same time as completion of the sale.
An alternative approach is to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.
Following years of correspondence we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Crayford. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?
You certainly can. We are happy to put you in touch with a Crayford conveyancing firm who can help.
An example of a Lease Extension decision for a Crayford flat is Various @ Colombus Square in January 2012. the Tribunal calculated the premiums to be paid for new leases for each of the flats in Mariners Walk to be £3822 and the premium to be paid for the new lease of 2 Knights Court to be £4439. This case was in relation to 13 flats. The unexpired residue of the current lease was 76 years.
