Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Motspur Park

My partner and I have just acquired a house in Motspur Park. We have noticed several issues with the property which we consider were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? What searches should? have been ordered for conveyancing in Motspur Park?

The question is vague as to the nature of the problems and if they are specific to conveyancing in Motspur Park. Conveyancing searches and due diligence undertaken as part of the buying process are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a seller completes a questionnaire referred to as a SPIF. If the information provided is incorrect, then you may have a claim against the vendor for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Motspur Park.

My partner and I are in the throws of viewing houses in Motspur Park and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it premature to have a solicitor in place? I am planning to take a mortgage with Coventry BS.

You should start obtaining conveyancing estimates from solicitors ASAP. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their contact information on to the estate agent. As you are seeking a mortgage with Coventry BS, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.

I recently had an offer agreed on a house in Motspur Park. My mortgage broker pressured me to appoint their conveyancing practitioner. I paid an upfront payment of £225. A few days later, the conveyancer called me to say that they were not on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?

You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Clydesdale panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.

I've digested plenty of mortgage guides, I note that they all recommend that you should get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Motspur Park solicitor - who is on the Principality conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?

Principality will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Principality will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your conveyancer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Motspur Park postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Principality, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Motspur Park.

My wife and I own a semi-detached Edwardian property in Motspur Park. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Santander. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the matching address. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You need to 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 Motspur Park and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also check the position with the conveyancing practitioner who conducted the purchase.

I opted to have a survey carried out on a property in Motspur Park in advance of appointing conveyancers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the property. My surveyor has said that some banks may refuse to give a loan on such a property.

It depends who your proposed lender is. HSBC has different instructions from Birmingham Midshires. If you e-mail us we can investigate further with the appropriate bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Motspur Park.

My solicitors in Motspur Park have advised me that they can not locate my conveyancing file. To assist with my purchase I took out a mortgage with the mortgage company. Is it case that being on the bank conveyancing panel they need to have retained the file for a number of years?

Different lenders have different requirements but many of the Terms and Conditions of Conveyancing Panel Appointment require the file to be held for a period of 6 years. That being said we have not seen a copy of the mortgage company Conveyancing Panel Terms. It might be worth you contacting the bank directly.
