Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Queenborough

Due to move into my new home in Queenborough next Friday. My solicitor now wants me to supply her with evidence of content and building insurance for the property as as she informs me that she is duty bound to validate that it is in order for the bank. What does the insurance need to cover?

Any lawyer on acting for lenders would need to check that the following risks are covered fire; lightning; aircraft; explosion; earthquake; storm; flood; escape of water or oil; riot; malicious damage; theft or attempted theft; falling trees and branches and aerials; subsidence; heave;landslip;collision;accidental damage to underground services;professional fees, demolition and site clearance costs; and public liability to anyone else. There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. These obligations are not limited to conveyancing in Queenborough.

I am being told by my lawyer that defective lease insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Queenborough?

The appropriate level of defective lease indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Accord Mortgages Ltd and Barnsley Building Society. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Queenborough. I have a mortgage offer with Aldermore. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Aldermore, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Aldermore conveyancing panel.

The formalities of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Queenborough. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How do I make a complaint?

Almost all banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office. We understand that complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.

How does conveyancing in Queenborough differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Queenborough approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Queenborough tend to buy 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 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 used to new build conveyancing in Queenborough or who has acted in the same development.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Queenborough is where the house is located. Can you offer any advice?

Flying freeholds in Queenborough are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Queenborough you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Queenborough may determine 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.

Given that I am about to spend 450k on a terraced house in Queenborough I would like to talk to a lawyer regarding thetransaction prior to giving the go ahead to the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

This is something that we encourage - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you speaking to the solicitor who will be carrying out your property ownership legalities in Queenborough.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is an important individual, not a file number. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are provided with for residential conveyancing in Queenborough should be the amount on the final invoice that you end up paying.

My father-in-law has encouraged me to instruct his conveyancers in Queenborough. Should I use them?

No doubt it’s preferable to choose a conveyancing lawyer is to get feedback from friends or relatives who have used the conveyancer you're considering.
