Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Fordingbridge

Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Fordingbridge. What is the rationale as to why all Fordingbridge conveyancing practitioners aren't automatically on all mortgage company panels?

As inequitable as it may seem for mortgage companies to restrict who can act for them, from the public’s or conveyancer’s standpoint, the the contrary view is that banks are increasingly anxious and feel it crucial to shield themselves from mortgage fraud. As a result of this concern mortgage companies are limiting their panel of approved conveyancing lawyers to a manageable size.

I am hoping to complete my purchase in Fordingbridge next Friday. My conveyancing practitioner now wants me to supply her with proof of content and building insurance for the property as as she informs me that she is duty bound to validate that it is in order for the bank. What does the insurance need to cover?

All property lawyers on acting for mortgage companies would need to check that the following risks are covered fire; lightning; aircraft; explosion; earthquake; storm; flood; escape of water or oil; riot; malicious damage; theft or attempted theft; falling trees and branches and aerials; subsidence; heave;landslip;collision;accidental damage to underground services;professional fees, demolition and site clearance costs; and public liability to anyone else. There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s Part 2 instructions. These requirements are not limited to conveyancing in Fordingbridge.

This question may be naive but I am new to the house moving as a first time purchaser of a garden flat in Fordingbridge. Do I receive the keys to the house on completion from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will instruct a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Fordingbridge?

On the day of completion you do not need to go to the conveyancers office in Fordingbridge. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the completion advance to the vendor’s lawyers, and once they have received this, you should be able to receive the keys from the Estate Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.

I am being advised by my lawyer that lack of right of way insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Fordingbridge?

The right level of lack of right of way indemnity insurance depends on who your lender is. It would differ for example between Lloyds TSB Bank and Coventry Building Society. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to members of the public take out such insurances.

After what feels like an age I have had an offer on a maisonette in Fordingbridge accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have offered on a flat, but it’s not yet agreed to, and have viewings of other apartments booked. I have selected a local conveyancing solicitor in Fordingbridge. What should be my next step? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with Yorkshire BS?

It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Fordingbridge conveyancing search charges, etc). The first course of action is to check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Yorkshire BS approved list. Concerning the next steps this very much dictated by the circumstances of your case, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market the majority of purchasers would apply for the mortgage with Yorkshire BS and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their solicitor to move forward with searches.

I have recentlyfound out that Wolstenholmes have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Fordingbridge for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 9 months ago. How can I establish that the property is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?

The easiest method to check if the property is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Fordingbridge conveyancing specialists.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Fordingbridge is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Fordingbridge are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Fordingbridge you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Fordingbridge may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
