Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Mevagissey

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 lawyer as I would prefer to appoint a high street conveyancing solicitor in Mevagissey?

You should check but the the likelihood is that allocate you one of their panel solicitors where you take up the "fee-free" incentive. Speak to the lender to check if they make available a monetary alternative. Some mortgage companies have previously offered a £250 cashback as a further option in which case that money can go towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor in Mevagissey.

Is it the case that all Mevagissey solicitor firms on the Principality conveyancing panel are governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?

As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Principality conveyancing panel they would need to be governed by the SRA. Many lenders do list licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the firms would be overseen by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

We expect to receive a DIP from TSB this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do TSB recommend any Mevagissey solicitors on the TSB conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Mevagissey solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the TSB conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and TSB through the process.

It is unclear whether my bank requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Mevagissey building society branch on numerous occasions and was advised it wasn't an issue and they would lend. My Mevagissey conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- called and was told they refuse to lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?

As long as the conveyancer is on the mortgage company approved list, she or he must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook conditions for the 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 bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

Will my conveyancer be asking questions about flooding as part of the conveyancing in Mevagissey.

Flooding is a growing risk for solicitors dealing with homes in Mevagissey. Some people will purchase a property in Mevagissey, completely expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical destruction, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or dispose of the premises. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Solicitors are not qualified to impart advice on flood risk, but there are a numerous searches that may be undertaken by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which will give them a better understanding of the risks in Mevagissey. The conventional set of information given to a buyer’s conveyancer (where the solicitors are adopting what is known as the Conveyancing Protocol) incorporates a standard question of the vendor to find out if the premises has ever been flooded. If flooding has previously occurred which is not disclosed by the seller, then a buyer could commence a claim for damages resulting from an inaccurate answer. A buyer’s conveyancers may also conduct an environmental report. This will disclose if there is any known flood risk. If so, additional investigations will need to be conducted.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Mevagissey is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Mevagissey are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Mevagissey you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy.

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.

I have just started marketing my basement flat in Mevagissey. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have just received a quarterly maintenance charge invoice – what should I do?

The sensible thing to do is clear the invoice as usual because all rents and service charges will be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.

I bought a 1 bedroom flat in Mevagissey, conveyancing was carried out in 1998. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Similar properties in Mevagissey with a long lease are worth £216,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 per annum. The lease ends on 21st October 2093

With 69 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £9,500 and £11,000 as well as professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
