Can you help? My Lydiate conveyancer is informing me me that she is duty bound toorder Lydiate conveyancing searches due to the fact thatthe firm are on the HSBCapproved lawyer panel. Is this really necessary?
You have limited options available to you. As you are taking a mortgage with a bank your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the CML Handbook provisions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Lydiate conveyancing searches.
I am planning on selling our home in Lydiate and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed land that was not decontaminated. A local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers instructed a factory type conveyancing firm rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Lydiate. We have lived in Lydiate for six years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification that there is no issue.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You should check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)
I have todaybeen informed that Arc property Solicitors have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Lydiate for a purchase of a leasehold flat 12 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?
The easiest method to see if the premises is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Lydiate conveyancing specialists.
I am buying a new build apartment in Lydiate. Conveyancing is necessary evil 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 legal work.
Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Lydiate
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. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry.
Due to the input of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Lydiate ahead of retaining lawyers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. The surveyor advised that some lenders may refuse to give a loan on this type of home.
It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different instructions from Halifax. If you call us we can check via the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Lydiate. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Lydiate to see if the conveyancing will be more expensive.
I need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor for remortgage conveyancing in Lydiate. I've land on a web site which looks to be the ideal offering If it is possible to get all the legals done via email that would be ideal. Do I need to be wary? What should out be looking out for?
As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
