Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Fleet

I am due to move property in May. Does my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the completion day. Incidentally, can you suggest a removal company in Fleet. Conveyancing firm was organised prior to coming across your page.

On the day of completion you can pick up the house keys from the selling agent but this can only happen when the previous owners lawyers inform the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be passed over. After that you should advise the removal company that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not suggest a specific removal organisation but can assist you in choosing a residential property solicitor in Fleet or a lawyer with expertise in conveyancing in Fleet.

I'm the sole beneficiary of my late mum's estate and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Fleet. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in February. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the property in February. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?

The CML handbook mandates conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you could be caught by that. Some lenders would take a pragmatic view as this obligation primarily exists to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of properties.

I am purchasing a property in Fleet. An unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Coventry BS be concerned?

As you are obtaining a mortgage with Coventry BS your lawyer must follow the formal requirements contained in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Coventry BS. The CML Handbook contains minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to Coventry BS where a lease fails to comply with these specifications. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not restricted to Fleet.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up during conveyancing in Fleet?

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Fleet. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

How does conveyancing in Fleet differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Fleet approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because new home sellers in Fleet usually buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Fleet or who has acted in the same development.
