My husband and I are nearing an exchange on a flat in Dunholme and my mum and dad have transferred the ten percent deposit to my property lawyer. I am now told that as the deposit has been received from someone other than me my lawyer needs to make a notification to my mortgage company. Apparently, in also acting for the lender he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is not just from me. I advised the mortgage company about my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for this now to hold matters up?
The conveyancer is duty bound to check with mortgage company to make sure that they understand that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only notify this to your lender if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
I am considering applying for a Nationwide mortgage for purchase of a newly converted (under development) in Dunholme with 65 per cent loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Nationwide ?
There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Nationwide will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is greater potential for delays and confusion with two solicitors involved, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.
We are aiming to move house in April. Does my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you suggest a removal company in Dunholme. Conveyancing firm was chosen before I stumbled across your website.
On the afternoon of completion you will need to collect the house keys from the property agent but this should only be done when the vendors lawyers advise the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be released. After that you can advise the removal company that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a particular removal company but can assist you in choosing a conveyancing in Dunholme or a lawyer with expertise in conveyancing in Dunholme.
I have a mortgage with Santander for my property in Dunholme. Conveyancing was finalised some time ago. If I am intending to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Santander?
Santander must be informed of your intention prior to letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Santander’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Santander directly. You need not do this via a Santander conveyancing panel solicitor.
I can not fathom if my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Dunholme bank branch on a couple of occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they will lend. My Dunholme conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- called and was told they would not lend based on their specific requirements. I have no idea who is right.
As long as the solicitor is on the bank approved list, they must comply with the CML Handbook requirements for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company 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 bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
We're novice buyers - agreed a price, but the agent has warned us that the vendor will only go ahead if we use their preferred solicitors as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Dunholme
We suspect that the owner is unaware of this ultimatum. Should the owner want ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated buyer is counter productive. Speak to the owners direct and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are serious buyers (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you intend to appoint your own,trusted Dunholme conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will give their negotiator at the agency a commission or meet his conveyancing thresholds pre-set by HQ.
Back In 2001, I bought a leasehold flat in Dunholme. Conveyancing and Birmingham Midshires mortgage went though with no issue. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1995. The conveyancing solicitor in Dunholme who previously acted has now retired. Any advice?
First make enquiries of HMLR to make sure that the individual purporting to own the freehold is indeed the registered owner of the freehold reversion. You do not need to incur the fees of a Dunholme conveyancing practitioner to do this as it can be done on-line for a few pound. Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.
Dunholme Conveyancing for Leasehold Flats - A selection of Queries Prior to buying
For many Dunholme leaseholds the cost for major works are not included within service charges, albeit that there some managing agents in Dunholme obliged leasehold owners to contribute towards a sinking fund created for the specific intention of building a fund for major repairs or maintenance. How many of the leaseholders are in arrears for their maintenance charge payments? Best to be warned if window replacement or some other major work is coming up to be shared by the tenants and will materially impact the level of the maintenance fees or result in a one off payment.
