Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Longford

I am purchasing a house for cash in Longford. I have lived for the previous 20 years in Longford. Conveyancing searches are expensive. Given that I have knowledge of the road and vicinity very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?

If you not getting a mortgage, then the vast majority of the Longford conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your conveyancer will try and steer you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches carried out, but he has a professional duty to do this. One thing to bear in mind; if you are going to dispose of the house at a future date, it will be of importance to your future buyer what the searches determine. On occasion properties with no practical issues can still show up unpredicted search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Longford will be able to give you some constructive advice here.

We are selling our house in Longford. Does the lawyer have to be required to be on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?

Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their requirements fairly frequently in recent years.

About to purchase a new build apartment in Longford. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

Here are examples of a few leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Longford

    The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. 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 provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. Please supply a car parking plan.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on last month in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Longford is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Longford are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Longford you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Longford may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

I was pointed in your direction by two or three local property agents in Longford to choose a property lawyer using your seach tool. What’s the financial advantage for Estate Agents to market your lawyers rather than another?

We don’t make any referral fee for sending work in our direction. We thought it would be too underhand a fee because home movers will think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

My husband and I are first time buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the property agent has warned us that the vendor will only issue a contract if we instruct their chosen lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a high street solicitor used to conveyancing in Longford

We suspect that the owner is unaware of this requirement. If they desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated purchaser is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Contact the vendors directly and explain that (a)you are serious purchasers (b)you are ready to progress, with finances in place © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you are going to appoint your own,trusted Longford conveyancing lawyers - not the ones that will give their negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or hit his conveyancing targets demanded by corporate headquarters.
