Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Holsworthy

I am about to put a bid on a leasehold apartment in Holsworthy. The estate agents tell me that it is the norm for flats in Holsworthy to have less than 75 years left on the lease. I am obtaining a loan with Virgin. Will the property be mortgageable given that the lease has 69 years remaining.

Most leasehold conveyancing experts should be able to deal with a lease extension. if you are getting a mortgage then your lender may insist that the lease be extended before competition. Virgin have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook in relation to minimum unexpired lease terms. As of 21/6/2022 the requirements read as follows :

85 years at the time of completion. If it's less, we require it to be extended on or before completion.

The mortgage over my property is with Virgin Money for my property in Holsworthy. Conveyancing was finalised months ago. In the event that I decide to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Virgin Money?

Your original mortgage agreement with Virgin Money will provide that you need their approval before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Virgin Money’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Virgin Money directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Virgin Money conveyancing panel solicitor.

I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in October 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Coventry BS are being difficult. The Holsworthy solicitor who is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Coventry BS are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Coventry BS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Coventry BS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Coventry BS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

Nottingham have agreed my mortgage in principle, my bid on a apartment in Holsworthy has been accepted, what happens next?

The estate agent will need to be advised as to your lawyer's details (ensure that the conveyancing practitioners are on the bank’s panel). Contact Nottingham or the broker and finish off any outstanding paperwork. Nottingham will sellect a valuer who will get in touch with the selling agent or owners to book a slot for the valuation to take place. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes about a fortnight for the mortgage offer to be issued. Nottingham will issue the offer to you and your conveyancers. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Holsworthy.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up as part of conveyancing in Holsworthy?

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Holsworthy. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

I'm purchasing a new build house in Holsworthy benefiting from help to buy. The developers refused to move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not reveal to my lawyer about the deal as it would jeopardize my loan with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Holsworthy is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Holsworthy are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Holsworthy you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Holsworthy may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

How and when do I cover the costs of the Stamp Duty Land Tax chargeable for my conveyancing in Holsworthy?

The majority of solicitors tend to complete a Land Transaction Return Form for you during your Holsworthy purchase transaction for you to sign. On completion your conveyancing practitioner will submit your Land Transaction application to the Tax Authorities and - assuming they have the funds - pay any tax bill due for you.
