I am selling my house in Mansfield Woodhouse. Does the conveyancing practitioner have to be on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their conditions fairly frequently at the moment.
I am the only beneficiary of my late grandmother’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Mansfield Woodhouse. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in April. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the property in April. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be affected by that. How sensible a view banks take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this provision chiefly exists to capture subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of property.
I currently have a mortgage with Aldermore for my property in Mansfield Woodhouse. Conveyancing has been completed a year ago. In the event that I decide to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Aldermore?
Aldermore must be informed of your intention prior to renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Aldermore’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Aldermore will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Aldermore directly. You need not do this via a Aldermore conveyancing panel solicitor.
At last I have had an offer on an apartment in Mansfield Woodhouse accepted, but there is a chain. The sellers have offered on on an apartment, however it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other properties in the pipeline. I have instructed a high street conveyancing solicitor in Mansfield Woodhouse. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Santander started?
It is understandable to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Mansfield Woodhouse conveyancing search charges, etc). The first course of action is to ensure that your solicitor is on the Santander approved list. As to the next steps this very much depends on the uniqueness of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market many home buyers would apply for a home loan with Santander and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their property lawyer to proceed with the conveyancing in Mansfield Woodhouse.
How does conveyancing in Mansfield Woodhouse differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Mansfield Woodhouse contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because builders in Mansfield Woodhouse tend to acquire the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Mansfield Woodhouse or who has acted in the same development.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Mansfield Woodhouse is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Mansfield Woodhouse are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Mansfield Woodhouse you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Mansfield Woodhouse may determine 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 property.
