I plan on purchasing a ground floor flat in Great Sankey. My Conveyancer is not on the bank conveyancing list. Can I still continue with my Great Sankey conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are excluded from the bank panel?
One must instruct a property lawyer to deal with the formalities when you take out a mortgage to purchase your home. The solicitor will conduct all the appropriate investigations on the property, make sure that you’re registered as proprietor and ensure that all the required mortgage paperwork is in order. You may instruct a Great Sankey solicitor of your choosing. Nevertheless, if the property lawyer appointed is not on the lender conveyancing panel supplemental fees will be levied as separate legal representation will be need by the lender. Bank panel applications may be submitted, so provided your solicitor has not previously applied for membership they can do so.
We are a couple about to sign contracts for a semi detached house in Great Sankey. We encountered a problem. The mortgage offer with Virgin Money runs out on 21/9/2021 but the vendors are suggesting a completion date of 23/9/2021. Is it possible to extend the loan offer?
The person best placed to address this issue is your conveyancer who will determine if he or she is better off negotiating with the mortgage broker, seller’s representatives, selling agents or conceivably all parties taking into account the circumstances your conveyancing as of today.
I am selling my apartment in Great Sankey. Does my solicitor have to be on the Santander conveyancing panel in order to deal with the discharge of my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Santander conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their specifications fairly frequently at the moment.
How does conveyancing in Great Sankey differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Great Sankey approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Great Sankey tend to 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 used to new build conveyancing in Great Sankey or who has acted in the same development.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one close by in Great Sankey I like with a park and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Great Sankey for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
