Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Mablethorpe

Me and my partner are due to exchange on the purchase of a property in Mablethorpe but as a consequence of wreckage from the recent storms I have managed to agree compensation from the current proprietors of three thousand pounds taking the form of a adjustment in the price. This was going to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process however RBS will not agree to this. Why were they notified?

Your conveyancing practitioner being on a RBS conveyancing panel is duty bound to inform RBS of any changes to the sale price. If you were to refuse your property lawyer to disclose the reduction to RBS then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, RBS and you would have to appoint a new property lawyer for your conveyancing in Mablethorpe.

We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The bank mentioned the home loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to appoint their panel solicitor as I would prefer to use a Mablethorpe based conveyancing firm?

Do check but the chances are that appoint one of their panel conveyancers should you take up the "fee-free" offer. Speak to the mortgage company to explore if they allow a monetary alternative. In the past a few mortgage companies offered a £250 cashback as a further option in which case that money can go towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor in Mablethorpe.

There is lots of here regarding conveyancing in Mablethorpe but can you isolate your top tip for appointing the right conveyancer in Mablethorpe

We would encourage you not to base your choice on the cheapest Mablethorpe conveyancing fees. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. 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 go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

The formalities of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Mablethorpe. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?

All lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.

I can not fathom if my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Mablethorpe bank branch on numerous occasions and was reassured it wasn't a problem and they would lend. My Mablethorpe conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- called and was told they will not lend based on their specific requirements. I have no idea who is right.

Your lawyer has to comply with the CML Handbook Part 2 conditions for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

I require expedited conveyancing in Mablethorpe as I am under a deadline to exchange contracts inside one month. A home loan is not required. Is it possible to escape the need for conveyancing searches to save money and time?

As you are are a mortgage free buyer you are at free not to have searches carried out although no law firm would suggest that you don't. Drawing on our experience of conveyancing in Mablethorpe the following are examples of what can arise and therefore impact future saleability: Refused Planning Applications, Overdue Fees, Overdue Grants, Railway Schemes,...

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Mablethorpe I like with open areas and railway links nearby, however it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Mablethorpe for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months 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 and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.

My step-father has suggested that I use his lawyers for conveyancing in Mablethorpe. Should I use them?

No doubt the ideal way to find a conveyancing lawyer is to get recommendations from friends or family who have actually previously instructed the firm that you are considering.
