I am purchasing a new build flat in Kingsnorth. How practical is it for me to do the conveyancing?
Leaving aside the complexities and merits of DIY conveyancing in Kingsnorth you will have to appoint a solicitor on your lender's conveyancing panel to look after their interests. Most people therefore find it easier to let the solicitor act for them and the lender. Furthermore there is minimal cost savings to be made in you doing conveyancing for yourself and another lawyer conducting the conveyancing for the lender. Please feel free to use the search tool to find a lawyer on your lender panel in Kingsnorth.
We are purchasing a detached bungalow in Kingsnorth. We would like to carry out a loft conversion at the property.Will the conveyancing process involve enquiries to see if these works are prohibited?
Your solicitor should check the registered title as conveyancing in Kingsnorth can sometimes reveal restrictions in the title deeds which prevent certain changes or require the permission of a 3rd party. Certain works call for local authority planning permissions and approval in compliance with building regulations. Certain areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. You should check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
When it comes to mortgage companies such as Principality, do Kingsnorth lawyers face a fee to be on the list of approved solicitors?
We are unaware of any bank fees to be on their list of approved firms, although some do charge an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.
I was told four weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by UBS. Is it usual for UBS to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Kingsnorth is approved on their conveyancing panel? UBS have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.
A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for UBS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the UBS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
The deeds to my house are lost. The lawyers who did the conveyancing in Kingsnorth 5 years ago have long since closed. What do I do?
Gone are the days when you need to have the physical original deeds to establish that you are the registered proprietor of land or property, given that the Land Registry have everything they need in a digital format.

The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Please supply a car parking plan.

The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier?
