Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Emersons Green

The owners have rather assertive sellers who has recommended a lock out agreement with a payment 10k. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?

There are a couple of primary concerns with signing a lock out agreement (sometimes known as a no-shop agreement) is that it diverts attention away from progressing with the conveyancing work, so unless it requires little or no negotiation then it may transpire to be a hindrance. It is not promoted by Emersons Green conveyancing lawyers as a result. The other main negative is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved purchaser is very unlikely to secure an injunctive ruling by a court to bar the owner disposing of the property to another buyer, so the only remedy open via the contract will be the reimbursement of wasted charges and, in rare circumstances, the extra payment of damages.

After researching moneysavingexpert.com for a recommended lawyer in Emersons Green, most post that I must instruct a CQS accredited lawyer. Can you explain what CQS is?

The Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme is the recognised quality mark for legal experts in home ownership transfers, trusted by some of the UK's leading lenders. Four years ago the Conveyancing Quality Scheme was officially recognised by the Building Societies Association (BSA). CQS is not a scheme offered by the Society for Licensed Conveyancers. Emersons Green is one of the many areas of the UK where there are CQS solicitors.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Leeds Building Society. I assume I don't need a Emersons Green conveyancing practitioner on the Leeds Building Society panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your Leeds Building Society mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Leeds Building Society mortgage from the register. Leeds Building Society, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Leeds Building Society has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Leeds Building Society has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Leeds Building Society mortgage has been paid off.

I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in December 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Principality are being a right pain. The Emersons Green solicitor who is on the Principality conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Principality are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Principality have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Principality have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Principality may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I have just appointed agents to market my garden flat in Emersons Green. Conveyancing has not commenced, but I have just had a half-yearly maintenance charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?

It best that you clear the maintenance contribution as normal because all rents and maintenance charges will be apportioned on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

    How much is the ground rent and service charge? If a Emersons Green lease has less than eighty years it will affect the marketability of the property. It is worth checking with your bank that they are willing to lend given the lease term. Leases with fewer than 80 years remaining means that you will almost definitely have to extend the lease sooner rather than later and it is worth finding out what this will be. Remember, in most cases you would be required to have been the owner of the property for 24 months in order to be entitled to carry out a lease extension. Is the freehold reversion owned jointly by the leaseholders?
