Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Dymock

My partner and I have recently acquired a house in Dymock. We have noticed several problems with the property which we suspect were missed in the conveyancing searches. What action can we take? What searches should? have been conducted as part of conveyancing in Dymock?

It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are relate to conveyancing in Dymock. Conveyancing searches and due diligence initiated during the buying process are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a seller fills in a document referred to as a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information provided is incorrect, you could possibly take legal action against the owner for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Dymock.

Do the Building Society Association intend to launch a searchable register to list solicitors on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel for instance in Dymock?

We are not aware of any plans on the part of the BSA to develop such a search facility.

Can I be sure that the Dymock conveyancing solicitor on the Co-operative panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in Dymock getting recommendations is a sensible start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always suggest that you speak with the solicitor carrying out your conveyancing.

I have a mortgage with UBS for my property in Dymock. Conveyancing was finalised 12 months ago. If I am intending to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform UBS?

Your original mortgage agreement with UBS will provide that you need their approval prior to renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of UBS’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent 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 UBS directly. You need not do this via a UBS conveyancing panel solicitor.

Having digested plenty of mortgage guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Dymock solicitor - who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?

Clydesdale will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Clydesdale 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. Your property lawyer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Dymock postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Clydesdale, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Dymock.

Me and my brother purchased a renovated Edwardian house in Dymock. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Clydesdale. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the matching address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Dymock and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also check the position with your conveyancing solicitor who conducted the conveyancing.

I only have 68 years left on my lease in Dymock. I need to get lease extension but my freeholder is missing. What are my options?

On the basis that you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be granted an extra 90 years by the Court. You will be obliged to demonstrate that you or your lawyers have done all that could be expected to find the freeholder. In some cases a specialist would be useful to conduct investigations and to produce a report which can be used as evidence that the freeholder can not be located. It is advisable to get professional help from a property lawyer in relation to investigating the landlord’s absence and the vesting order request to the County Court covering Dymock.

I inherited a ground floor flat in Dymock, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Comparable flats in Dymock with an extended lease are worth £216,000. The ground rent is £50 per annum. The lease ceases on 21st October 2091

With only 69 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £9,500 and £11,000 plus costs.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.

I am buying a property and require a conveyancing solicitor in Dymock who is on the mortgage company approved panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a Dymock conveyancing firm?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for the mortgage company who conduct conveyancing in Dymock. We dont recommend any particular firm.
