A few days later, the property lawyer contacted me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Kent Reliance panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
How does conveyancing in Frinton On Sea differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Frinton On Sea approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because developers in Frinton On Sea 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Frinton On Sea or who has acted in the same development.
22 days into purchasing a house in Frinton On Sea. Conveyancing lawyer has phoned to say the title is "Leasehold". Does this make a difference on our lender’s valuation?
Frinton On Sea conveyancing does not in most situations involve leasehold houses. The main factor here is the remaining lease term and the ground rent. If there are hundred of years years remaining with a peppercorn rent, it's essentially freehold, so it’s unlikely to impact the value significantly.
At the other end of the spectrum, if it's, say, fifty five years it is bound to have a material impact on the saleability, and most likely wouldn't be mortgageable. The length of lease and ground rent will be set out in the lease which should be made available to your conveyancing practitioner.
