Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Isle Of Wight

The sellers of the property we are looking to purchase have instructed a conveyancing firm in Isle Of Wight who has suggested a lock out agreement with a payment of 5k. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?

There are two main downsides with signing a lock out contract (sometimes referred to as an exclusivity agreement) is that it diverts attention away from progressing with the conveyancing work, so unless it requires little or no negotiation then it could turn out to be unhelpful. It is not particularly popular by Isle Of Wight conveyancing solicitors for this reason. The other main concern is the extent of the remedies available - an aggrieved buyer is extremely unlikely to be granted an injunctive ruling by a court to bar the vendor disposing of the property to another buyer, so the only remedy open via the agreement will be the recovery of wasted costs and, in rare circumstances, the extra payment of penalties.

Having sold my house in Isle Of Wight last March yet the purchaser is calling me to moan that his solicitor is waiting to hear from myconveyancer. What are the post completion sale legalities following completion?

Following your disposal your conveyancer is obliged to deliver the transfer documentation and all of the paperwork to the purchaser's lawyers. Where appropriate, your lawyer must also confirm that the mortgage has been redeemed to the purchasers solicitors. There is unlikely to be post completion steps just for conveyancing in Isle Of Wight.

My house in Isle Of Wight is up for sale and I have a purchaser. Does the solicitor have to be required to be on the Skipton conveyancing panel in order to deal with repayment of my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Skipton conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their specifications fairly frequently currently.

I have just started marketing my basement apartment in Isle Of Wight. Conveyancing has not commenced, however I have just received a half-yearly maintenance charge demand – what should I do?

The sensible thing to do is clear the maintenance contribution as usual as all ground rent and maintenance invoices will be apportioned on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice 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. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
