Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Kempshott

The Kempshott conveyancing firm handling our Kempshott conveyancing has discovered a difference between the information in the home valuation survey and what is revealed within the legal papers for the property. My lawyer informs me that he is duty bound to ensure that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my solicitor’s stance appropriate?

Your solicitor must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for both parties.

I am the single recipient of my late grandmother’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Kempshott. The Kempshott property was put into my name in August. I plan to dispose of the property. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership will be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the property in August. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook mandates conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be caught by that. Some mortgage companies would take a pragmatic view as this requirement is principally there to identify subsales or the quick reselling of property.

I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by RBS. Is it usual for RBS to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Kempshott is approved on their conveyancing panel? RBS have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for RBS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the RBS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

Coventry BS have agreed my mortgage in principle, my offer on a flat in Kempshott has been agreed to, what are the next steps?

The property agent will want to be advised as to your conveyancer's details (ensure that the lawyers are on the bank’s approved list). Call up Coventry BS or the broker and complete any outstanding documentation. Coventry BS will sellect a valuer who will get in touch with the estate agent or vendor to book a slot for the valuation to occur. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes approximately ten days to get a mortgage offer. Coventry BS will send the offer to you and your solicitors. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Kempshott.

How does conveyancing in Kempshott differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Kempshott contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because new home sellers in Kempshott tend to purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Kempshott or who has acted in the same development.

Assuming the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Kempshott - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

    Can you inform me if there are any major works anticipated that will increase the service fees? You should be aware if it is less than 80 years it will affect the salability of the flat.

A short lease means that you will almost definitely require a lease extension sooner rather than later and it is worth finding out how much this would cost.
