Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Crowthorne

We are about to sign contracts for a semi detached house in Crowthorne. We have hit a stumbling block. The mortgage offer with The Royal Bank of Scotland runs out on 3/6/2024 but the owners are suggesting a completion date of 5/6/2024. Is it possible to prolong the mortgage expiry date?

The person best placed to address this concern is your solicitors who should calculate whether they corresponding with the lender, vendor’s lawyers, estate agents or conceivably all three based on what has gone on in your transaction as of today.

I am considering applying for a Skipton mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Crowthorne with 70% loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Skipton ?

There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Skipton will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is much more potential for delays and confusion with an additional lawyer added to the mix, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.

What is your number one tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Crowthorne

Do not opt for the cheapest Crowthorne conveyancing fees. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of time.

I'm the only beneficiary of my late father’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Crowthorne. The Crowthorne property was put into my name in March. I plan to dispose of the property. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership will be treated the same way as though I had purchased the property in March. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be impacted by that. many mortgage companies would take a practical view as this requirement principally exists to identify subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.

Our sealed bid on a semi in Crowthorne has been agreed to, the vendors do however have a dependent purchase. The owners have offered on somewhere, but it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other flats booked. I have selected a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Crowthorne. What should be my next step? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with RBS?

It is usual to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (home loan application is approx £1k, then valuation, Crowthorne conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you must check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the RBS conveyancing panel. As to the subsequent steps this very much dictated by the specifics of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many purchasers would apply for a home loan with RBS and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their conveyancing practitioner to move forward with the conveyancing in Crowthorne.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Crowthorne I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 years on the lease. There is not much else in Crowthorne for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?

If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.

Is there a reason that Crowthorne conveyancing costs differ for leasehold and freehold properties?
