Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Huyton

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unexperienced as a 1st time buyer of a two bedroom flat in Huyton. Do I collect the keys to the house on the completion date from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will instruct a local conveyancing solicitor in Huyton?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will transfer the completion advance to the owner’s lawyers, and once they have received this, you should be able to collect the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen early afternoon.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with TSB. I assume I don't need a Huyton solicitor on the TSB panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your TSB mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the TSB mortgage from the register. TSB, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where TSB has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. TSB has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your TSB mortgage has been paid off.

I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Huyton off the council. I have a mortgage agreed with Barclays. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Barclays, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Barclays conveyancing panel.

I have been told that property searches are the number one reason for hinderance in Huyton house deals. Is there any truth in this?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published conclusions of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the top 10 causes of hindrances in the conveyancing process. Searches are not likely to feature in any holding up conveyancing in Huyton.

I got the keys to my home on 5 September and the transaction details is not yet registered. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Huyton expressed confidence that it will be registered in a couple of weeks. Are titles in Huyton uniquely lengthy to register?

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Huyton registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry have to notify any third persons or bodies. At present approximately three quarters of submission are fully dealt with within 12 days but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Registration occurs after the new owner is living at the premises thus an expedited registration is not usually an essential issue but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer can contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

By way of example, this area of conveyancing can cover the sale or purchase of freehold business premises or, more commonly, the assignment of existing business tenancies or the drafting of new leasing arrangements. Commercial conveyancing solicitors can also offer advice on the sale of business assets, commercial mortgages and the termination of tenancies.

Am I better off to instruct a Huyton conveyancing practitioner based in the vicinity that I am buying? I have an old university friend who can carry out the legal formalities but they are based 400kilometers away.

The primary upside of using a high street Huyton conveyancing practice is that you can visit the firm to execute documents, present your identification documents and pester them if necessary.

If other friends have instructed your friend and they were impressed that must outweigh using an unfamiliar Huyton conveyancing solicitor just because they are round the corner.

My wife and I purchased a leasehold flat in Huyton. Conveyancing and Birmingham Midshires mortgage are in place. I have received a letter from someone saying they have taken over the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1991. The conveyancing practitioner in Huyton who previously acted has long since retired. Do I pay?

The first thing you should do is contact the Land Registry to make sure that the individual claiming to own the freehold is in fact the new freeholder. It is not necessary to instruct a Huyton conveyancing practitioner to do this as it can be done on-line for £3. You should note that in any event, even if this is the rightful freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.

Leasehold Conveyancing in Huyton - Examples of Questions you should consider before Purchasing

    How is the lease structured? The answer will be helpful as a) areas may result in problems for the building as the common areas may start to deteriorate if repairs remain unpaid b) if the leaseholders have a dispute with the running of the building you will need to have all the details Please note that where the lease has no more than 80 years it will have adverse implications on the value of the property. Check with your bank that they are willing to lend given the lease term. Leases with fewer than 80 years remaining means that you will probably need a lease extension sooner rather than later and you need to have some idea of what this will be. For most Huytonlease extensions you will be required to have owned the residence for a couple of years in order to be eligible to extend the lease.
