We are a couple about to sign contracts for a ground floor flat in Helmsley. We encountered a problem. The mortgage offer with Nationwide Building Society runs out on 29/1/2024 but the owners are insisting on a completion date of 31/1/2024. Is it possible to prolong the mortgage expiry date?
The best person to deal with your issue is your lawyer who is in a position to calculate whether he or she is corresponding with the lender, seller’s solicitors, selling agents or indeed all parties taking into account the circumstances your house move to date.
We are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Helmsley and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Helmsley conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers are using an online conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Helmsley. We have lived in Helmsley for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to get confirmation that there is no issue.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You should check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)
I have justbecome aware that Arc property Solicitors have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Helmsley for a purchase of a freehold house 18 months ago. How can I establish that the property is in my name in the name of the previous owner?
The quickest way to check if the premises is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Helmsley conveyancing specialists.
I opted to have a survey carried out on a property in Helmsley ahead of appointing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. Our surveyor advised that some mortgage companies may not issue a mortgage on this type of property.
It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different instructions from Nationwide. If you e-mail us we can check with the appropriate lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Helmsley. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Helmsley to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.
