I can't travel far from Raynes Park. I would like to know the reason why all Raynes Park solicitors are not on all bank panels?
A decade ago most banks exhibited an approach to risk which differs from the current day. The Financial Services Authority in 2010 carried out a thematic review into property fraud which concluded: know the conveyancers on your panel. Consequently, lenders have since looked to extract more information from law firms concerning their operations and the individuals employed by them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum volume of transactions. Hundreds of firms have been excluded from lender panels even though they had an exemplary track record, no complaints and zero claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Many firms found it impossible meet the criteria of amount of transactions the lenders required.
Can conveyancing in Raynes Park to be done in less than a month?
Where the seller is applying pressure to exchange we would recommend that your lawyer is familiar with the area as they will have local relationships and insight. It is possible that they may have handled previousproperties in the same street. Therefore consider using a Raynes Park conveyancing firm. Second, double check that the lawyer is on the lender panel. It is claimed that just under twenty per cent of Raynes Park conveyancing transactions are frustrated or jeopardised after discovering a buyer’s conveyancer was not on their mortgage lender’s member panel. In many cases this discovery resulted in the conveyancing being delayed by as much as 21 days. It is estimated that this issue impacts approximately 100,000 home sales annually. Almost all Raynes Park conveyancing firms can not represent certain lenders so do check as early as possible.
I am planning on selling our house in Raynes Park and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. A local lawyer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers instructed a national conveyancing firm as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Raynes Park. We have lived in Raynes Park for three years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain clarification need.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer already. What do they say? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)
The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Raynes Park. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.
Set out below is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Raynes Park
Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore.
I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Raynes Park. Before I set the wheels in motion I want to be sure as to the number of years remaining on the lease.
Assuming the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Raynes Park - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord to extend my lease without getting anywhere. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal decide on such issues? Can you recommend a Raynes Park conveyancing firm to assist?
Where there is a missing landlord or where there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to arrive at the sum to be paid.
An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Raynes Park flat is 33 The Maisonettes Alberta Avenue in June 2014. the Tribunal decided that the premium payable for the grant of a new lease be the sum of £20,680 (Twenty Thousand six hundred and eighty pounds). This case was in relation to 1 flat. The unexpired term was 60.43 years.
