In what way does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Farnborough? Is this really warranted?

Farnborough conveyancing solicitors and indeed property lawyers accross the UK have a duty under Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering rules to check the ID of any client in order to satisfy themselves that clients are who they say they are.

Conveyancing clients are required to produce two forms of certified identification; proof of ID (typically a Passport or Driving Licence) and proof of address (usually a Bank Statement no older than three months).

Evidence of source of funds is also required under the money laundering laws as solicitors are mandated to investigate that the monies you are using to acquire a property (be it the exchange deposit or the total purchase price if you are buying without a mortgage) has originated from an acceptable source (such as employment savings) rather than the fruits of illegitimate behaviour.

We had selected conveyancers locally in Farnborough on the RBS solicitor panel. They have just billed me an additional charge for dealing with the RBS mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by RBS?

Provided it is contained in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your property lawyer may charge a fee for this. This charge is not dictated by RBS but by your Farnborough lawyer. Some firms on the RBS panel will quote ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but some firms include it on their overall fee.

I currently have a mortgage with Skipton for my property in Farnborough. Conveyancing has been completed months ago. Should I wish 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 Skipton?

You must advise Skipton in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Skipton’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 Skipton directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Skipton conveyancing panel solicitor.

My offer on a detached house in Farnborough has been agreed to, the sellers do however have a dependent purchase. The vendors have offered on on an apartment, but it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other properties in the pipeline. I have selected a local conveyancing solicitor in Farnborough. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with Principality started?

It is normal to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (home loan application is approx £1k, then survey, Farnborough conveyancing search charges, etc). The first thing to do is check that your solicitor is on the Principality conveyancing panel. Regarding the next phase this very much dictated by the circumstances of your transaction, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a rising market many buyers will apply for a home loan with Principality and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their conveyancer to move forward with the conveyancing in Farnborough.

I am looking for a flat up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Farnborough I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Farnborough for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

Should you need a mortgage that many years will likely be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.

Taking into account that I am about to part with £400,000 on a house in Farnborough I wish to have a conversation with the lawyer regarding thetransaction prior to instructing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

This is something that we encourage - we would be delighted to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you first talking to the lawyer who will be conducting your property ownership legalities in Farnborough.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is unique person, not a case reference. The law firms that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are calculated and presented to you for residential conveyancing in Farnborough should be the figure that you are charged.
