Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Porthleven

I am getting closer to an exchange on a house in Porthleven and my parents have transferred the exchange deposit to my conveyancing practitioner. I am now advised that as the deposit has not come from me my conveyancer needs to disclose this to my mortgage company. I am advised that, in also acting for the mortgage company he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I informed the mortgage company regarding my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really appropriate for him to raise this?

The property lawyer is legally required to clarify with the bank to make sure that they know that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only reveal this to your bank if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

My grandfather passed away 10 months ago and as sole heir and executor I was left the property in Porthleven. The house had a relatively small loan remaining of approximately £4500. I want to transfer the title deeds into my name whilst I re-mortgage to RBS, pay off the mortgage. Is this possible?

Where you plan to refinance then RBS will require that you use a conveyancer on the RBS conveyancing panel. Here is link to the Land Registry online guidance around what to do when a property owner dies. This will help you to understand the registration process behind changing the details re the registered title. in your case it would appear that you are effectively purchasing the property from the estate. Your RBS conveyancing panel solicitor pays the new mortgage money into the estate, the estate pays off the old mortgage, the charge is released and you become the owner and the RBS mortgage is registered as a charge at the Land Registry.

We have a mortgage agreed in principle with UBS. Porthleven conveyancing solicitors are instructed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from UBS?

There is no definitive answer here. Have UBS done the valuation? Have you informed UBS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the UBS conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Aldermore. I assume I don't need a Porthleven lawyer on the Aldermore panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

If you have finished paying off your Aldermore mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Aldermore mortgage from the register. Aldermore, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Aldermore has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Aldermore has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Aldermore mortgage has been paid off.

I have todaybeen informed that Wolstenholmes have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Porthleven for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 9 months ago. How can I check that the property is not still registered in the name of the previous owner?

The easiest method to see if the premises is in your name, you can carry out 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 Porthleven conveyancing specialists.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Porthleven is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can give?

Flying freeholds in Porthleven are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Porthleven you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Porthleven 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.
