Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Penryn

Are the BSA planning on creating a searchable register to to identify firms on the Loughborough BS conveyancing panel for instance in Penryn?

We have not been informed any intention on the part of the BSA to promote such a register.

Have completed on a a detached house in Penryn , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register the transfer to my name? My Penryn conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be sure the registration formalities are dealt with.

As far as conveyancing in Penryn is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than the rest of England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can differ depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry have to notify any interested persons or bodies. As of today roughly 80% of such applications are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Historically registration occurs once the new owner is living at the premises therefore post completion formalities is not always an essential issue yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

How does conveyancing in Penryn differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Penryn come to us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because new home sellers in Penryn typically acquire the real estate, 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 conveyancers 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 Penryn or who has acted in the same development.

I opted to have a survey done on a property in Penryn in advance of instructing lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. The surveyor has said that some lenders tend not grant a loan on a flying freehold property.

I work for a long established estate agent office in Penryn where we have experienced a few flat sales jeopardised due to leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have received conflicting advice from local Penryn conveyancing firms. Can you shed some light as to whether the vendor of a flat can commence the lease extension process for the buyer?

Provided that the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the buyer need not have to wait 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed before, or at the same time as completion of the disposal of the property.

Alternatively, it may be possible to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.
