This question may be naive but I am unexperienced as FTB of a ground floor flat in Redbridge. Do I collect the keys to the property on completion from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Redbridge?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the completion advance to the seller's lawyers, and once they have received this, you will be invited to collect the keys from the Estate Agents and move into your new home. Usually this occurs between 1 and 3pm.
My conveyancer has informed me that missing deeds insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Redbridge conveyancing?
The right level of missing deeds indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Nationwide Building Society and Bank of Scotland. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.
Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Nationwide. Redbridge conveyancing lawyers are selected. How long does it take for Nationwide to send the offer to the lawyer?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have Nationwide done the survey? Have you informed Nationwide as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Nationwide conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
It has been four months following my purchase conveyancing in Redbridge completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
How does conveyancing in Redbridge differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Redbridge contact us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because house builders in Redbridge typically purchase 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Redbridge or who has acted in the same development.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Redbridge is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Redbridge are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Redbridge you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Redbridge 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 property.
