Will my conveyancing lawyers need to check that the building insurance when buying a house in Harrow Weald. My lender is Chelsea Building Society
Chelsea Building Society have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook. As of 25/3/2023, the requirements read as follows :
We were going to get a AIP from Skipton this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Skipton recommend any Harrow Weald solicitors on the Skipton conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Harrow Weald solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Skipton conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Skipton through the process.
Planning on purchasing a apartment in Harrow Weald. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Harrow Weald property lawyer is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel.
After what feels like an age I have had an offer on a maisonette in Harrow Weald accepted, the sellers do however have an associated purchase. The sellers have placed an offer on somewhere, however it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other apartments in the pipeline. I have chosen a high street conveyancing solicitor in Harrow Weald. What do I do now? When should I get the mortgage application with Kent Reliance going?
It is usual to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is approx £1k, then valuation, Harrow Weald conveyancing search costs, etc). The first thing to do is ensure that your solicitor is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel. Concerning the next steps this very much depends on the circumstances of your transaction, desire for the property and on the state of the market. During a hot market the majority of home buyers will apply for a home loan with Kent Reliance and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their conveyancing practitioner to press on with searches.
Do I need to pay for insurance to cover chancel repairs when buying a residence in Harrow Weald?
Unless a previous purchase of the house took place after 12 October 2013 you may expect solicitors carrying out conveyancing in Harrow Weald to continue to suggest a chancel search and or chancel repair liability insurance.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Harrow Weald I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Harrow Weald suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
If you require a mortgage that many years may be an issue. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
Should I be suspicious about estate agents that I am dealing with are suggesting an online conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Harrow Weald conveyancing firm?
As is the case with lots of professional services, often input from relatives can be extremely useful or valuable. Yet there are numerous players in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, financial adviser and mortgage companies might all suggest conveyancers to select. On occasion the solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there may be a financial incentive behind the endorsement. You are at liberty to choose your own conveyancer. Don't forget that some mortgage providers specify a panel list of solicitors you have to use for the lender aspect of your house move.
