I have paid off my mortgage with Lloyds. I assume I don't need a Gidea Park lawyer on the Lloyds panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your Lloyds 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 Lloyds mortgage from the register. Lloyds, 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:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Lloyds has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Lloyds has instructed the Land Registry to do so
After weeks of negotiation I have agreed a price on a house in Gidea Park. My financial adviser suggested a conveyancer. I paid an upfront payment of £150. A few days later, the conveyancer called me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the RBS 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 RBS 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.
I have instructed a Gidea Park conveyancer having made sure that they are on the Principality conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Principality will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Principality will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Gidea Park surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Gidea Park is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Gidea Park are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Gidea Park you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Gidea Park 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 premises.
Do I need to be suspicious that brokers that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use an online conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Gidea Park conveyancing firm?
As is the case with many professional services, often referrals from connections can be extremely useful or valuable. But there are many players in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and banks might all put forward lawyers to appoint. Sometimes these conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there may be a commercial relationship behind the endorsement. You are free to select your own lawyer. However, bear in mind that the majority of banks specify a panel list of solicitors you are obliged to use for the lender related work in your transaction.
