Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Purley

Our conveyancer has discovered a a problem with the lease for the apartment we are purchasing in Purley. The seller’s lawyers have offered title insurance as a workaround. We are happy with insurance and will pay for it. Our lawyer has advised that he must be satisfied that the mortgage company is content with this solution. Who is the client here, us or the mortgage company ?

Regardless of the fact that you have a mortgage offer from the mortgage company does not mean to say that the property will meet their conditions for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions. You and the lender are the client. These conveyancing instructions must be adhered to.

My fiancee and I are spending time viewing apartments in Purley and I am about to put in an offer. Is it wise to have my conveyancing practitioner on ‘stand by’? I am planning to take a home loan with Santander.

It would be sensible to start your search sooner rather than later. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their details on to the EA. As you are taking out a mortgage with Santander, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Santander conveyancing panel.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with UBS. I assume I don't need a Purley conveyancer on the UBS panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your UBS 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 UBS mortgage from the register. UBS, 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 UBS has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. UBS has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your UBS mortgage has been paid off.

I've digested plenty of mortgage guides, I note that they all recommend that you should get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Purley solicitor - who is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?

Lloyds will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Lloyds will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your solicitor will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Purley postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Lloyds, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Purley.

My friend advised me that where I am purchasing in Purley I should ask my conveyancer to carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

A search of this type is occasionally quoted for as part of the standard Purley conveyancing searches. It is a large document of more than thirty pages, listing and setting out significant information about Purley around the property and the people living there. It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime statistics, Purley Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information concerning Purley.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Purley. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.

Set out below are examples of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Purley

    Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry.

I opted to have a survey done on a property in Purley before appointing solicitors. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. The surveyor has said that some lenders tend not grant a loan on this type of property.

It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different instructions from Birmingham Midshires. If you contact us we can check with the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Purley. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Purley especially if they regularly deal with such properties in Purley.

Whilst your website is a good idea there are many lawyers listed near Purley being on the bank conveyancing panel. It would be a lot more helpful if you could recommend a specific firm on the bank approved panel?

We do not recommend specific Purley firms as the right Purley conveyancing firm for you depends on where your priorities lie. For example you may require a local firm with Purley knowledge or you might be looking for the low cost conveyancing. We recommend that you speak to 3 or 4 lawyers listed before you make your choice..
