Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Forest Row

My fiance and I are hoping to buy a 3 bedroom flat in Forest Row with a residential mortgage from Chelsea Building Society.We use our Forest Row conveyancing practitioner but Chelsea Building Society informed us his firm is not listed on their approved list of member firms. we are left little option but to use a Chelsea Building Society panel solicitor or retain our local solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to represent them. This seems very unfair; is there anything we can do?

No, not really. The home loan offered to you contains various provisions, a common one being that lawyers must be on the Chelsea Building Society approved list. Until recently, most mortgage companies had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Chelsea Building Society

I have been told that property searches are a common reason for hinderance in Forest Row conveyancing transactions. Is there any truth in this?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published determinations of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the most frequent causes of delays during the legal transfer of property. Searches are unlikely to be the root cause of holding up conveyancing in Forest Row.

I have justbecome aware that Stirling Law have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Forest Row for a purchase of a freehold house 9 months ago. How can I establish that the property is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?

The easiest method to check if the premises is in your name, 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 Forest Row conveyancing specialists.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Forest Row. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.

Set out below are examples of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Forest Row

    There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Forest Row is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Forest Row are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Forest Row you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Forest Row may ascertain 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 residence.

My uncle has suggested that I appoint his lawyers for conveyancing in Forest Row. Should I use them?

Much as we are happy to recommend a Forest Row conveyancing lawyer the best way to select a conveyancing lawyer is to have referrals from friends or family who have actually previously instructed the conveyancer that you are are thinking of instructing.
