Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Perranporth

Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Perranporth. I would like to know the understand why all Perranporth conveyancers aren't included on all lender panels?

As inequitable as it may appear for mortgage companies to limit who can represent them, from the public’s or solicitor’s point of view, the other side of the coin is that lenders are becoming ever more anxious and consider it necessary to defend themselves against mortgage fraud. As a result of this concern mortgage companies are limiting their conveyancing panel to a size that they are happy to control.

Can you clarify what the consequences are if my lawyer’s firm is expelled from the Yorkshire BS Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Perranporth?

First, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

Do I select a Licenced Conveyancer or Solicitor for conveyancing in Perranporth?

There are two types of lawyers who can perform conveyancing in Perranporth namely licenced conveyancers or solicitors. Both professionals handle conveyancing services that you need to complete the disposal or acquisition of property. They are both required to conduct Perranporth conveyancing on similar standards and guidelines so you can be sure that your conveyancing will be professionally carried out and that all necessary steps will be appropriately followed.

It is not clear whether my lender requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Perranporth building society branch on a couple of occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they will lend. My Perranporth conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they would not lend in accordance with their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I have no idea who is right.

The solicitor must follow the CML Handbook section two specifications for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by RBS. Is it usual for RBS to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Perranporth is approved on their conveyancing panel? RBS have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.

A lender would not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for RBS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the RBS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

I have todaydiscovered that Stirling Law have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Perranporth for a purchase of a leasehold flat 12 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?

The easiest way to see if the property is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Perranporth conveyancing specialists.

Due to the input of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Perranporth in advance of retaining solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the property. Our surveyor has said that some banks may not grant a loan on such a house.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Perranporth.

I've found a house that seems to be perfect, at a reasonable figure which is making it more attractive. I have since discovered that the title is leasehold as opposed to freehold. I am assuming that there are issues buying a house with a leasehold title in Perranporth. Conveyancing advisers have are about to be instructed. Will my lawyers set out the implications of buying a leasehold house in Perranporth ?

Most houses in Perranporth are freehold and not leasehold. In this scenario it’s worth having a local conveyancer used to dealing with such properties who can help the conveyancing process. We note that you are buying in Perranporth in which case you should be looking for a Perranporth conveyancing solicitor and be sure that they have experience in dealing with leasehold houses. As a matter of priority you will need to check the unexpired lease term. As a lessee you will not be entirely free to do whatever you want to the property. The lease comes with conditions such as obtaining the freeholder’sconsent to conduct changes to the property. It may be necessary to pay a contribution towards the upkeep of the communal areas where the property is part of an estate. Your solicitor will appraise you on the various issues.

I purchased a 1 bedroom flat in Perranporth, conveyancing formalities finalised in 2001. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Comparable flats in Perranporth with over 90 years remaining are worth £195,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 invoiced every year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2084

With 62 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £17,100 and £19,800 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.
