Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Linslade

We are buying a house in Linslade. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a conveyancer? At some point we have to put money into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our money?

Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.

I am buying a property in Linslade. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Barclays have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

Given that your lender is Barclays your lawyer must check the conveyancing requirements contained in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Barclays. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook contains minimum requirements for solar panel roof-space leases, and property lawyers are required to report to Barclays where a lease fails to comply with these specifications. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not limited to Linslade.

I was told four 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 Linslade is approved on their conveyancing panel? RBS 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 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.

I require quick conveyancing in Linslade as I am under pressure to sign on the dotted line in less than 2 weeks. A mortgage is not required. Is it possible to avoid the conveyancing searches to save money and time?

As you are not obtaining a home loan you are at liberty not to have searches carried out although no solicitor would advise that you don't. Drawing on years of experience of conveyancing in Linslade the following are instances of issues that can show up and adversely affect future saleability: Enforcement Notices, Outstanding Fees, Overdue Grants, Unadopted Roads,...

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and identified one near me in Linslade I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Linslade in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.

How do I use your search app to find a conveyancing solicitor in Linslade on the approved list for my mortgage?

As co-executor for the estate of my grandmother I am disposing of a residence in Cardiff but live in Linslade. My lawyer (approximately 260 miles awayneeds me to sign a statutory declaration prior to the transaction finalising. Can you recommend a conveyancing practitioner in Linslade to witness and place their company stamp on the document?

Technically speaking you are not likely to need to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally or notary public or solicitor will do regardless of whether they are Linslade based

Contained within the Solicitors Code of Conduct are prescriptive rules and regulations as to how the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) allow solicitors to publicise their fees to clients.The Law Society have a practice note giving advice on how to publicise transparent charges to avoid breaching any such rule. Practice notes are not legal advice issued by the Law Society and is not to be regarded as the only standard of good practice a conveyancing solicitor should adhere to.
