I am expecting a mortgage offer from Santander. I intend to employ the services of a Licensed Conveyancer in Hatton. Does the Santander Solicitor panel include conveyancers regulated by the CLC?
The Santander approved solicitor list is, like many other lenders, associated to the Council or Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
If you had a top tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Hatton what would it be?
It would be unwise to be swayed by the cheapest Hatton conveyancing quote. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of the deal.
We are due to move home in October. Does my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you recommend a removal company in Hatton. Conveyancing firm was organised before I stumbled across your site.
On the day of completion you can pick up the keys from the property agent but this should only happen after the sellers conveyancers confirm to the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be released. Subsequently you can advise the removal men that they can start moving you in. We are not in a position to suggest a particular removal organisation but can assist you in locating a residential property solicitor in Hatton or a firm that specialises in conveyancing in Hatton.
Is it correct that all Hatton CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the UBS conveyancing list of approved solicitors?
Some major banks and building societies now use CQS as the kick off point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. The Law Society’s CQS membership however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. Nevertheless,the CML have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for firms wishing to join their approved list of firms.
About to purchase a new build apartment in Hatton. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.
Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Hatton
Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Please supply a car parking plan. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided.
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Hatton I like with a park and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Hatton suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
I was pointed in your direction by a few estate agents in Hatton to locate a conveyancer on your site. Is there a financial incentive for Estate Agents to offer your services over and above a competitor’s?
We don’t offer any commission for directing people our way. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission as a client could think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
Is there a difference between surveying and conveyancing in Hatton?
Conveyancing - in Hatton or elsewhere - is the process of legally transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It involves the investigation of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you’re buying and will help you discover the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you a powerful reason for negotiating the purchase price down or asking the vendor to remedy the defects before you move in.
