My grandmother passed away 10 months ago and as sole heir and executor I was left the property in East Croydon. The house had a relatively small loan left on it of around £4500. I want to transfer the title deeds into my name whilst I re-mortgage to Yorkshire BS, pay off the mortgage. Is this possible?
Where you intend to re-mortgage then Yorkshire BS will require that you use a conveyancer on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. Here is link to the Land Registry online guidance around what to do when a property owner dies. This will help you to understand the registration process behind changing the details re the registered title. in your case it would appear that you are effectively purchasing the property from the estate. Your Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel solicitor pays the new mortgage money into the estate, the estate pays off the old mortgage, the charge is released and you become the owner and the Yorkshire BS mortgage is registered as a charge at the Land Registry.
We are selling our house in East Croydon and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. A high street East Croydon conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers used a web based conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in East Croydon. We have lived in East Croydon for many years we know of no issue. Do we contact our local Authority to get clarification need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm already. Are they able to advise? You need to enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)
Hoping to buy a property located in East Croydon and I am already nervous. I couldn't find anything specific about East Croydon. Conveyancing will be needed in due course but do you know about the East Croydon area? or perhaps some other tips you can share?
Rather than looking online forget looking online you should go and have a look at East Croydon. In the meantime here are some basic statistics that we found
My husband and I are novice buyers - agreed a price, but the selling agent told us that the owners will only proceed if we instruct the agent's preferred conveyancers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local conveyancer who is accustomed to conveyancing in East Croydon
It is unlikely the sellers are driving this. Should the seller want ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious purchaser is counter productive. Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and make sure they understand (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you will continue to instruct your preferred East Croydon conveyancing lawyers - rather thanthe ones that will give the estate agent a introducer fee or meet his conveyancing thresholds pre-set by senior management.
Last October I purchased a leasehold flat in East Croydon. Do I have any liability for service charges relating to a period prior to my ownership?
In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
We have reached the end of our tether in seeking a lease extension in East Croydon. Can this matter be resolved via the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal?
