When it comes to mortgage companies such as UBS, do Peacehaven lawyers have to pay a yearly amount to be on the conveyancing panel?
We are unaware of any bank fees to be on their panel, although some do levy an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.
We are getting the release of further funds on our mortgage from Clydesdale as we want to carry out alterations to our home in Peacehaven. Do we need to appoint a local Peacehaven solicitor on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel to deal with the paperwork?
Clydesdale would not normally instruct firms on their conveyancing panel to handle the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Clydesdale list.
My offer was accepted on an apartment in Peacehaven on 7/12/2021, valuation was booked 4 days after, received a clean bill of health. Solicitor appointed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Yorkshire BS and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. Are Yorkshire BS entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Yorkshire BS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
Various internet forums that I have visited warn that are the main reason for delay in Peacehaven conveyancing transactions. Is this right?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published conclusions of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature within the most frequent causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Searches are not likely to be the root cause of holding up conveyancing in Peacehaven.
How does conveyancing in Peacehaven differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Peacehaven come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because builders in Peacehaven tend to 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Peacehaven or who has acted in the same development.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Peacehaven is where the house is located. Can you offer any opinion?
Flying freeholds in Peacehaven are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Peacehaven you would need to get your solicitor to go 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 Peacehaven 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 residence.
