What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Lynmouth? Is this really warranted?
Anti-terror and anti-money-laundering regulations require solicitors and licensed conveyancers to check the identity of the potential client they are dealing with before they can accept their conveyancing instruction. The Client Care letter that you need to sign will no doubt stipulate this. Your lawyer also has obligations to obtain certain documents in accordance with the CML Lenders Handbook requirements last updated on 1st December 2014. If you refuse to provide ID verification documents, your solicitor can not take you on as a client.
There are numerous conveyancing solicitors in Lynmouth but how do I know who's good?
Do not opt for the lowest Lynmouth conveyancing quote. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of the deal.
I am expecting a AIP from Nottingham this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Nottingham recommend any Lynmouth solicitors on the Nottingham conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Lynmouth solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Nottingham through the process.
Aldermore have agreed my home loan in principle, my bid on a house in Lynmouth has been accepted, what happens next?
Your property agent will wish to know who your solicitors are (ensure that the conveyancing practitioners are on the bank’s approved list). Contact Aldermore or the broker and finish off any appropriate documentation. Aldermore will appoint a valuer who will get in contact with the selling agent or owners to arrange a time for the valuation to happen. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes approximately a week for the mortgage offer to be issued. Aldermore will issue the offer to you and your conveyancers. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Lynmouth.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Lynmouth is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Lynmouth are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Lynmouth you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Lynmouth may ascertain 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 premises.

What makes a Lynmouth lease unacceptable for security purposes?
Leasehold conveyancing in Lynmouth is not unique. Most leases are drafted differently and drafting errors can sometimes mean that certain clauses are not included. The following missing provisions could result in a defective lease:
Clauses dealing with recovering service charges for expenditure on the building or common parts.
A defective lease will likely cause issues when trying to sell a property as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage. Santander, Chelsea Building Society, and Godiva Mortgages Ltd all have express requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. If a mortgage lender believes that the lease is problematic they may refuse to provide security, forcing the purchaser to withdraw.
