Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Littleborough

I am nearing an exchange on a house in Littleborough and my parents have sent the 10% deposit to my conveyancer. I am now informed that as the deposit has been received from someone other than me my conveyancer needs to disclose this to my mortgage company. I am advised that, in also acting for the bank he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is not just from me. I disclosed to the lender about my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really appropriate for this now to be an issue?

The conveyancing practitioner is obliged to check with mortgage company to make sure that they understand that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own resources. Your solicitor can only report this to your lender if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

If you require a home loan that many years will be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account.

You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.

My husband and I plan to buy our first property in Littleborough. Conveyancing practitioner has been appointed. The mortgage adviser suggested that a survey is not needed as the property was only constructed 22 years ago.

The bare minimum you need a Home Buyer's Report. As the premises is over 10 years old the property will not come with a warranty, so you don't want to take a risk. Where a property of this age shows no signs of problems a Home Buyer's report may suffice. They will highlight any apparent issues and suggest additional investigation if relevant. Where there are any indications of problems obtain a full Building Survey from the beginning.
