Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Hinckley

Last June we completed a house move in Hinckley. We have since encountered a number of issues with the property which we suspect were missed in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? Can you clarify the nature of searches that should have been conducted as part of conveyancing in Hinckley?

It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are relate to conveyancing in Hinckley. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken during the buying process are supposed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, the vendor answers a questionnaire known as a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information is incorrect, you could possibly take legal action against the vendor for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Hinckley.

Why do I have to pay up front when it comes to conveyancing in Hinckley?

Where you are retaining lawyers for conveyancing in Hinckley your lawyer will request that you put them with funds to cover the the cost of the conveyancing searches. This will be the total of the cost of the conveyancing searches. If any deposit is as part of the total price then this will be asked for shortly ahead of contracts are exchanged. The closing balance that is due should be transferred shortly before completion.

Can you clarify what the consequences are if my lawyer’s firm is suspended from the Co-operative Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Hinckley?

The first thing to point out is that, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.

I completed on my flat on 1 February and the transaction details is yet to be on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Hinckley said it would be dealt with in less than a month. Are properties in Hinckley particularly slow to register?

As far as conveyancing in Hinckley is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust depending on who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any other parties. Currently roughly 80% of such applications are fully dealt with within two weeks but some can be subject to longer hold-ups. Registration occurs after the buyer has moved in to the premises so an expedited registration is not always an essential issue yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Hinckley. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Hinckley

    Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Please supply a car parking plan.
