Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Mablethorpe

I am not in a position to travel far from Mablethorpe. Is there a reason why all Mablethorpe conveyancing practitioners are not on all mortgage company panels?

As inequitable as it may appear for mortgage companies to limit who can represent them, from the public’s or conveyancer’s viewpoint, the other side of the coin is that lenders are increasingly anxious and regard it crucial to protect them against illegal activities. As a result of this concern lenders have consolidated their conveyancing panel to a manageable size.

Do lenders provide you with an approved list of Mablethorpe conveyancing solicitors? How do you know who is on the Skipton conveyancing panel?

I am helping my sister sell her property in Mablethorpe. Does the solicitor commission the EPC or should I organise this?

After the abolition of HIPs, energy performance certificates was maintained a required element of selling a house. An energy assessment must be commissioned prior to the property being placed on the market. It is not a task that law firms normally organise.

I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in October 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Bank of Ireland are being problematic. The Mablethorpe solicitor who is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Bank of Ireland are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Bank of Ireland have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Bank of Ireland have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Bank of Ireland 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.

Principality have agreed my mortgage in principle, my offer on a property in Mablethorpe has been accepted, now what?

Your property agent will need to know who your solicitors are (ensure that the solicitors are on the lender’s panel). Telephone Principality or the broker and finish off any outstanding forms. Principality will appoint a valuer who will get in touch with the selling agent or seller to schedule an appointment. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes approximately a week to get a mortgage offer. Principality will send the offer to you and your solicitors. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Mablethorpe.

I used Arc property Solicitors a few years ago for my conveyancing in Mablethorpe. I now require my papers however the law firm has closed. What do I do?

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Mablethorpe I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Mablethorpe suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan that many years may be problematic. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.

Last June I purchased a leasehold flat in Mablethorpe. Am I liable to pay service charges relating to a period prior to my ownership?

In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

    The best form of lease arrangement is a share of the freehold. In this situation the leaseholders enjoy being in charge if their destiny and even though a managing agent is often retained if the building is bigger than a house conversion, the managing agent is directed by the tenants. Best to be warned if a new roof is being put on or some other major work is pending to be shared amongst the tenants and could well materially impact the level of the service costs or result in a specific payment.
