I am buying a ground floor flat in Hornchurch. My lawyer is not on the bank solicitor list. Am I still permitted to use my Hornchurch conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the mortgage company list of approved lawyers?
One will need to appoint a solicitor to deal with the formalities if you need a loan to buy your home. The property lawyer will conduct all the relevant investigations on the property, ensuring that you’re properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the required mortgage documentation is in place. You can select a Hornchurch conveyancing practitioner of your choice. Nevertheless, if the solicitor appointed is not a member of the lender solicitor panel additional costs will be incurred as separate legal representation will be required by them. Bank panel applications may be submitted, so provided your solicitor has not in the past applied for membership they can do so.
I am need of leasehold conveyancing for an apartment in a relatively new development (6 years built) in Hornchurch. 95% of the appartments are already disposed of. Do I need carry out the neighbourhood searches as part of conveyancing in Hornchurch?
If you are purchasing a property with the assistance of a loan, your lender will require some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Hornchurch conveyancing searches are optional. Your lawyer, will ’encourage’, perhaps strongly, that you should have the searches done, but he or she has a professional duty to do this. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. But if you demand that your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or ask you to appoint a different lawyer for your conveyancing in Hornchurch.
About to purchase a new build flat in Hornchurch. Conveyancing is necessary evil 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.
Set out below are examples of a few leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Hornchurch
Please supply a car parking plan. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? 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. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Hornchurch is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Hornchurch are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Hornchurch 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 Hornchurch may decide 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 property.
I have just started marketing my 2 bed flat in Hornchurch. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, however I have recently received a half-yearly maintenance charge demand – what should I do?
It best that you pay the maintenance contribution as normal as all rents and maintenance charges should be allotted on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
