Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Milton Keynes

I am hoping to receive a offer of a home loan from Santander. I hope to use a Licensed Conveyancer in Milton Keynes. Does the Santander Solicitor panel exclude Licensed Conveyancers?

The Santander conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, represented by the CML or Building Society Association, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.

We see that you have a post code search directory listing firms on the Skipton conveyancing panel. Do firms pay you a commission if I instruct them for our conveyancing in Milton Keynes?

We are a listing service only for law firms wishing to communicate if they are on the Skipton conveyancing panel or other lender panels. We do not charge referral fees to any conveyancer that you subsequently appoint for your conveyancing in Milton Keynes.

I am buying a detached bungalow in Milton Keynes. We would like to convert the garage to an office at the property.Will the conveyancing process include enquiries to ascertain if these works were previously refused?

Your property lawyer should review the deeds as conveyancing in Milton Keynes will on occasion reveal restrictions in the title documents which prohibit categories of works or require the consent of another owner. Certain additions require local authority planning permissions and approval in compliance with building regulations. Many locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions. You should check these things with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.

I am the single recipient of my late mum's will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Milton Keynes. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in November. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', meaning my property ownership may be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the house in November. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The CML handbook instructs solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be caught by that. many mortgage companies would take a pragmatic view as this requirement is chiefly there to capture subsales or the quick reselling of property.

We had selected solicitors based in Milton Keynes on the Aldermore solicitor panel. They are now charging me an additional charge for handling the Aldermore mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by Aldermore?

Provided it is contained in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your conveyancer can levy a fee for this. This fee is not set by Aldermore but by your Milton Keynes property lawyer. Numerous firms on the Aldermore panel will quote ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but plenty of practices incorporate it on their overall fee.

I require quick conveyancing in Milton Keynes as I am faced with an ultimatum to complete inside 3 weeks. Luckily I do not need a mortgage. Can I decline from having conveyancing searches to save fees and time?

If.Given you are not getting a home loan you are at liberty not to have searches carried out although no law firm would suggest that you don't. Drawing on our experience of conveyancing in Milton Keynes the following are examples of what can arise and adversely affect the marketability of the property: Enforcement Notices, Outstanding Fees, Outstanding Grants, Unadopted Roads,...

Me and my brother have a 4 bedroom Victorian property in Milton Keynes. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and TSB. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the matching property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Milton Keynes and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also question the position with your conveyancing lawyer who conducted the purchase.

I opted to have a survey completed on a house in Milton Keynes prior to retaining solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the property. The surveyor advised that some mortgage companies tend not give a loan on such a property.

It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different requirements from Birmingham Midshires. If you e-mail us we can investigate further via the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Milton Keynes. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Milton Keynes to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.
