My father advised me that in buying a property in Pangbourne there may be various restrictions affecting the ability to carry out external alterations to the property. Is this right?
We are aware of a number of properties in Pangbourne which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to perform external changes. Part of the conveyancing in Pangbourne should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.
I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Pangbourne off the council. I have a mortgage agreed with Leeds Building Society. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Leeds Building Society, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel.
Clydesdale have agreed my home loan in principle, my bid on a apartment in Pangbourne has been agreed to, what are the next steps?
The estate agent will need to be informed of your solicitor's details (ensure that the conveyancing practitioners are on the lender’s panel). Call up Clydesdale or your broker and finish off any outstanding forms. Clydesdale will instruct a valuer who will get in contact with the selling agent or vendor to schedule an appointment. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes on average a week to receive the mortgage offer. Clydesdale will issue the offer to you and your conveyancing practitioners. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Pangbourne.
Just acquired a semi-detached house in Pangbourne , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register my ownership? My Pangbourne conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to be certain the post completion formalities are addressed.
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Pangbourne registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry have to notify any other persons or bodies. As of today roughly three quarters of submission are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to longer delays. Historically registration is effected after the purchaser is living at the premises thus an expedited registration is not always top priority but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Pangbourne is the location of the property. Can you offer any advice?
Flying freeholds in Pangbourne are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Pangbourne you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Pangbourne may ascertain 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 residence.
Should I go with a Pangbourne conveyancing solicitor in close proximity to the house I am hoping to buy? An old friend can execute the legal work however his firm is located 400miles away.
The primary upside of using a local Pangbourne conveyancing firm is that you can drop in to sign documents, deliver your ID and pester them if necessary. They will also have local knowledge which is a benefit. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If you know people who instructed your friend and the majority were happy that should outweigh using an unknown Pangbourne conveyancing solicitor just because they are local.
I've recently bought a leasehold house in Pangbourne. Do I have any liability for service charges for periods before my ownership?
Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
