We wanted to use a property lawyer in Redruth for our home move. Our financial adviser has since advised us that our mortgage lenders Yorkshire Building Society won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unduly restrictive?
A lender will insist on a panel solicitor act for it. You would be liable to meet the cost of this. Please make use of our tool to get a quote from a solicitor to carry conveyancing in Redruth on the Yorkshire Building Society conveyancing panel.
This question may be naive but I am wet behind the ears as FTB of a ground floor flat in Redruth. Do I collect the keys to the premises on completion from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will instruct a local conveyancing solicitor in Redruth?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the purchase money to the seller's conveyancers, and once they have received this, you should be called to collect the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this occurs early afternoon.
We previously appointed conveyancers with offices in Redruth on the UBS solicitor approved list. They are now charging me a supplemental charge for dealing with the UBS mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee specified by UBS?
As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your solicitor may levy a fee for this. The charge is not set by UBS but by your Redruth solicitor. Numerous firms on the UBS panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.
I had a mortgage agreed in principle with Leeds Building Society. Redruth conveyancing lawyers are instructed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Leeds Building Society?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have Leeds Building Society conducted the valuation? Have you informed Leeds Building Society as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
Will our solicitor be making enquiries regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Redruth.
Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers conducting conveyancing in Redruth. Some people will buy a property in Redruth, completely expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or dispose of the property. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.
Solicitors are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a numerous checks that may be undertaken by the buyer or by their solicitors which should give them a better appreciation of the risks in Redruth. The standard property information forms supplied to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a standard inquiry of the owner to determine if the premises has historically flooded. In the event that the residence has been flooded in past which is not disclosed by the owner, then a buyer could issue a claim for damages as a result of such an incorrect response. A buyer’s conveyancers should also carry out an enviro report. This will indicate whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further inquiries will need to be conducted.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up during conveyancing in Redruth?
Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Redruth. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Redruth I like with amenity areas and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Redruth suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage that many years may be an issue. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.
