Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Navenby

The Navenby conveyancing firm handling our Navenby conveyancing has discovered a difference when comparing the assumptions in the valuation survey and what is in the conveyancing documents. My lawyer says that he is duty bound to check that the bank is happy with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my conveyancer’s stance legitimate?

Your solicitor must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for both parties.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as FTB of a ground floor flat in Navenby. Do I collect the keys to the house on the completion date from my lawyer? If so, I will find a local conveyancing solicitor in Navenby?

On the day of completion you do not need to attend the conveyancers office in Navenby. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the completion advance to the owner’s solicitors, and once they have received this, you will be able to collect the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property.

When it comes to mortgage companies such as Bank of Ireland, do Navenby solicitors face an annual charge to be on the conveyancing panel?

We are not aware of any lender fees to be on their list of approved firms, although some do levy an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.

After weeks of negotiation I have agreed a price on a house in Navenby. My financial adviser suggested a lawyer. I paid an upfront payment of £175. A few days later, the lawyer contacted me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Bank of Ireland 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 Bank of Ireland 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.

How does conveyancing in Navenby differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Navenby come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because builders in Navenby typically acquire the land, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Navenby or who has acted in the same development.

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one close by in Navenby I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Navenby suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

At what stage do I cover the costs of the Stamp Duty Land Tax payable for my Navenby house purchase?

Your conveyancing practitioner will complete a Land Transaction Return Form for you as part of your Navenby purchase transaction for signature. After completion your property lawyer will submit the STL application to the Tax Authorities and - as long as they have the funds - discharge any land tax payable for you.
