We are getting a further advance on our home loan from Skipton as we want to carry out a loft conversion to our home in Kelsall. Do we need to select a high street Kelsall solicitor on the Skipton conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?
Skipton would not normally appoint a member of their conveyancing panel to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Skipton conveyancing panel.
My wife and I are spending time looking at houses in Kelsall and I am now considering a potential offer. Should I already have a solicitor appointed at this stage? I am planning to take a mortgage with Barclays.
You should start requesting conveyancing quotes from solicitors ASAP. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their details on to the selling agent. Given that you are taking out a mortgage with Barclays, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Barclays conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.
I purchased a semi-detached Victorian house in Kelsall. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Britannia. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the matching property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Kelsall and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also check the situation with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the conveyancing.
I'm buying a new build house in Kelsall with a loan from The Royal Bank of Scotland. The sellers would not budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative advised me not disclose to my conveyancer about this extras as it will jeopardize my mortgage with The Royal Bank of Scotland. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
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.
I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and identified one round the corner in Kelsall I like with open areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Kelsall in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.
