My best friend’s uncle is a property lawyer. I suspect that I can be offered preferential pricing for conveyancing, However if that does not come through, what kind of figure would I typically be looking at for conveyancing in Looe?

is it true that all Looe conveyancing solicitors on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel are governed by the SRA?

As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel they would need to be overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Some lenders do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel and in that case the organisation would be governed by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

I have paid off my mortgage with UBS. I assume I don't need a Looe conveyancer on the UBS panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your UBS mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the UBS mortgage from the register. UBS, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where UBS has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. UBS has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your UBS mortgage has been paid off.

TSB have agreed my mortgage in principle, my offer on a apartment in Looe has been accepted, what are the next steps?

Your estate agent will wish to be advised as to your solicitor's details (ensure that the solicitors are on the lender’s approved list). Contact TSB or the broker and complete any appropriate documentation. TSB will appoint a valuer who will get in touch with the estate agent or seller to arrange a time for the valuation to happen. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes approximately a week for the mortgage offer to be issued. TSB will issue the offer to you and your lawyers. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Looe.

How does conveyancing in Looe differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Looe contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because new home sellers in Looe tend to acquire the site, 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 property lawyers 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 Looe or who has acted in the same development.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Looe I like with amenity areas and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Looe for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan that many years will be an issue. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.

I am a sole trader wishing to take over a lease of an office on the high street. Can you recommend solicitors offering no-sale-no charges for commercial conveyancing in Looe for under 2k?

We are happy to recommend firms who host a wealth of experience of commercial conveyancing in Looe, including the sale and purchase of businesses as well as simply property. Whether you are intending to acquire or lease a shop, pub, restaurant, office, retail premises or a complete business we can put you in touch with the right solicitor. Regarding the fees these will vary based on the structure and heads of terms of the proposed transaction. Let us have your details or email so as to enable us to provide you with a detailed commercial conveyancing quote.

Is it best to appoint a Looe conveyancing solicitor in close proximity to the house I am purchasing? We have a good friend who can perform the legal formalities but his firm is located 400kilometers drive away.

The benefit of a high street Looe conveyancing practice is that you can attend the office to sign paperwork, hand in your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. They will also have local intelligence which is a plus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If you know people who instructed your friend and the majority were happy that must surpass using an unfamiliar Looe conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being local.
