My brother-in-law has suggested I instruct a conveyancing solicitor in New Malden. I I would like to check whether they are on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. Can you help?
The first thing to do is contact the lawyer and ask them whether they can act for the bank. Alternatively you can get in touch with Virgin Money who may be able to assist.
I am being told by my lawyer that lack of building regulations insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in New Malden?
The right level of lack of building regulations indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Lloyds TSB Bank and The Mortgage Works. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to borrowers take out such policies.
I am expecting a DIP from Principality this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Principality recommend any New Malden solicitors on the Principality conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint New Malden solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Principality conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Principality through the process.
Intending to buy a house in New Malden. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the New Malden solicitor is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel.
I am buying a new build apartment in New Malden. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.
Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in New Malden
There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision.
I was pointed in your direction by numerous property agents in New Malden to select a conveyancer using your seach tool. What’s the financial advantage for Estate Agents to market your services rather than another?
We refuse to make any commission for sending work in our direction. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission as a client could think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
In my capacity as executor for the estate of my aunt I am disposing of a property in Neath but I am based in New Malden. My solicitor (approximately 200 miles awayrequires that I execute a statutory declaration ahead of the transaction finalising. Could you suggest a conveyancing lawyer in New Malden who can attest and place their company stamp on the document?
Technically speaking you should not be required to have the documents witnessed by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally or notary public or solicitor will suffice regardless of whether they are based in New Malden
