Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Lostwithiel

I am acquiring a property mortgage free in Lostwithiel. I have been living for the last Seventeen years in Lostwithiel. Conveyancing searches are expensive. As I have knowledge of the road and vicinity very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?

If you not getting a mortgage, then almost all of the Lostwithiel conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your conveyancer will ’encourage you, no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches completed, but he is duty bound to do this. Do take into account; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it could be of relevance to your future buyer what the searches reveal. There are plenty of instances where houses with no practical issues can still reveal unpredicted search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Lostwithiel will provide you some sensible advice here.

Can I use your services to recommend a Conveyancing solicitor in Lostwithiel even where I’m not buying or selling a house, for example where I want to buy an office in Lostwithiel with a loan from Bank of Ireland?

The service is primarily utilised to help choose residential conveyancing solicitors in Lostwithiel but we have set out towards the end of this page a few Lostwithiel commercial conveyancing firms. You will need to speak with the solicitors directly to establish if they are also authorised to represent Bank of Ireland

We have agreed to purchase a house in Lostwithiel. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Skipton 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 you are obtaining a mortgage with Skipton your lawyer must check the formal instructions outlined in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Skipton. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook stipulates minimum requirements for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to Skipton where a lease fails to satisfy these conditions. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not isolated to Lostwithiel.

I have paid off my mortgage with UBS. I assume I don't need a Lostwithiel 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.

I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in July 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Aldermore are being a right pain. The Lostwithiel solicitor who is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Aldermore are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Aldermore have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Aldermore have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Aldermore may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

Have completed on a a semi-detached house in Lostwithiel , how long will it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my ownership? My Lostwithiel conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be certain that my ownership is registered.

As far as conveyancing in Lostwithiel is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any interested parties. As of today roughly three quarters of submission are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Historically registration occurs after the buyer is living at the property so 'speed' is not usually top priority yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers could speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I am buying a new build house in Lostwithiel with a loan from Barclays . The builders refused to move on the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not reveal to my conveyancer about this side-deal as it could impact my loan with Barclays . Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

There are a lot of properties in Lostwithiel on unadopted lanes. My wife and I are purchasing such a property. Are there any advantages to purchasing a house on a private road?

Lostwithiel conveyancing lawyers will be well versed in dealing houseson unadopted roads. The property lawyer will investigate title to find any rights or responsibilities. It is possible that there is a management company (wholly owned by residents) that owners make annual contributions for the upkeep of the road. Where there is one, the road should be maintained and appear better than publicly maintained.
