Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Longford

Me and my partner are due to complete buying a house in Longford but as a result of wreckage from the recent storms I have managed to agree reparation from the vendor in the sum of £3k taking the form of a deduction in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of amending the contract however Nationwide are not allowing this. Should they have been involved?

Any conveyancing practitioner that is on a Nationwide conveyancing panel is obliged to disclose to Nationwide of any variations to the sale price. If you prohibit your conveyancer to notify the price change to Nationwide then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Nationwide and you would have to appoint a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Longford.

A friend recommended that where I am purchasing in Longford I should ask my conveyancer to carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

This is a search is sometimes quoted for as part of the standard Longford conveyancing searches. It is not a small report of about 40 pages, listing and setting out important information about Longford around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime statistics, Longford Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data concerning Longford.

five months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Longford concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

How does conveyancing in Longford differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Longford contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because builders in Longford usually purchase the land, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 used to new build conveyancing in Longford or who has acted in the same development.

Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Longford ahead of appointing lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. The surveyor advised that some banks may refuse to give a mortgage on this type of property.

It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different instructions for example to Halifax. Should you wish to telephone us we can investigate further via the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Longford. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

In what way can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my business premises in Longford and how can your lawyers assist?

The 1954 Act gives a safeguard to commercial tenants, granting the legal entitlement to apply to court for a new lease and remain in occupation at the end of the lease term. There are limited grounds where a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complicated. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing.
