Can you point me to a directory of Principality panel solicitors in Huntingdon on the Council of Mortgage Lender’s Website?

Unfortunately not yet. There is no such tool on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association websites. Very few lending institutions make their panel listings visible over the internet. If you are in need of a Huntingdon conveyancer on the Principality please make the most of our facility.

I can not fathom if my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Huntingdon building society branch on numerous occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they would lend. My Huntingdon conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they would not lend in accordance with their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?

As long as the lawyer is on the mortgage company panel, she or he must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook conditions for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

Kent Reliance have agreed my home loan in principle, my bid on a house in Huntingdon has been accepted, what happens next?

Your property agent will want to know who your solicitors are (make sure the conveyancers are on the bank’s panel). Call up Kent Reliance or the broker and finish off any outstanding paperwork.

Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes approximately a fortnight to receive the mortgage offer. Kent Reliance will issue the offer to you and your conveyancers.

I have recentlyfound out that Wolstenholmes have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Huntingdon for a purchase of a leasehold flat 12 months ago. How can I check that the property is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?

The quickest method to see if the premises is in your name, you can make 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 Huntingdon conveyancing specialists.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one near me in Huntingdon I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Huntingdon in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

If you require a home loan that many years will be problematic. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.

My conveyancer (approximately 260 kilometers from merequires that I execute a statutory declaration prior to the transaction finalising.
