Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Paignton

My IFA has requested my Paignton law firm’s panel reference for the HSBC conveyancing panel. Can you suggest how I find this out. I have called my local Paignton branch but they have not got back to me yet.

Have you tried speaking to your Paignton conveyancer about this?. Most Paignton law firms will keep a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each lender.

Please help. My Paignton solicitor is advising me that she is duty bound toapply for Paignton conveyancing searches asthe firm are on the Santandersolicitor panel. Is my conveyancer correct?

Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. Given that you are taking out a loan with a lender your lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your lender’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the CML Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Paignton conveyancing searches.

My wife and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Paignton and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built on contaminated land. A high street Paignton lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers instructed an internet conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Paignton. Having lived in Paignton for three years we know of no issue. Do we contact our local Authority to obtain clarification need.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor already. What do they say? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same illness)

Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Paignton. Conveyancing is a frightening process 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 are examples of a few leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Paignton

    Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Paignton is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Paignton are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Paignton you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Paignton may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. 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.

My father-in-law has urged me to appoint his lawyers for conveyancing in Paignton. Should I use them?

Much as we are happy to recommend a Paignton conveyancing lawyer it’s preferable to choose a conveyancing solicitor is to get feedback from friends or family who have actually experience in using the solicitor you're considering.
