Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Frizington

The Frizington conveyancing firm handling our Frizington conveyancing has uncovered a difference when comparing the assumptions in the home valuation survey and what is revealed within the title deeds. My lawyer has advised that he is obliged to ensure that the bank is happy with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my solicitor’s stance appropriate?

Your conveyancing practitioner must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for both parties.

Both professionals provide conveyancing services that you need to complete the disposal or acquisition of property.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Yorkshire BS. I assume I don't need a Frizington lawyer on the Yorkshire BS panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

If you have finished paying off your Yorkshire BS mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Yorkshire BS mortgage from the register. Yorkshire BS, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Yorkshire BS has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Yorkshire BS has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Yorkshire BS mortgage has been paid off.

I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in December 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Santander are being difficult. The Frizington solicitor who is on the Santander conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Santander are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Santander have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Santander have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Santander may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified during conveyancing in Frizington?

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Frizington. 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 Frizington differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Frizington contact us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because new home sellers in Frizington typically buy the real estate, 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 used to new build conveyancing in Frizington or who has acted in the same development.

As co-executor for the estate of my grandfather I am disposing of a house in Neath but reside in Frizington. My conveyancer (approximately 300 kilometers awayneeds me to execute a stat dec prior to completion. Could you suggest a conveyancing solicitor in Frizington who can witness and place their company stamp on the document?

I only have Fifty years unexpired on my lease in Frizington. I now wish to get lease extension but my landlord is can not be found. What are my options?

If you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for for permission to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be lengthened by the Court. However, you will be required to prove that you or your lawyers have used your best endeavours to find the freeholder.

I invested in buying a 1 bedroom flat in Frizington, conveyancing having been completed March 1996. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Equivalent flats in Frizington with a long lease are worth £202,000. The ground rent is £60 per annum. The lease ceases on 21st October 2077

You have 57 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £28,500 and £33,000 plus costs.

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information without first getting professional advice.
