Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Ringmer

It is 10 years ago since I acquired my house in Ringmer. Conveyancing solicitors have just been appointed on the sale but I can't find my title documents. Will this jeopardise the sale?

You need not be too concerned. Firstly there is a possibility that the deeds will be kept by your lender or they could be in the possession of the conveyancers who handled your purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors procuring up to date copy of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Ringmer relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.

I am aiming to move house in May. Should my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Ringmer. Conveyancing solicitor was organised prior to coming across this site.

On the day of completion you will need to pick up the keys from the estate agent but this should only happen after the vendors solicitors inform the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be passed over. You can tell the removal men that you are ready to move in. We are not in a position to suggest a specific removal organisation but can help you choose a residential property solicitor in Ringmer or a legal practice that specialises in conveyancing in Ringmer.

How can we know in advance if a Ringmer conveyancing solicitor on the UBS panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in Ringmer getting recommendations is a good starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always recommend that you speak with the lawyer conducting your conveyancing.

I have paid off my mortgage with Santander. I assume I don't need a Ringmer property lawyer on the Santander panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

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

I need some quick conveyancing in Ringmer as I am faced with an ultimatum to sign on the dotted line inside one month. A home loan is not required. Is it possible to decline from having conveyancing searches to save fees and time?

With plenty of history conveyancing in Ringmer the following are examples of issues that can be revealed and adversely impact future saleability: Enforcement Notices, Outstanding Charges, Outstanding Grants, Road Schemes,...

I am buying a new build apartment in Ringmer. 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 legal work.

Set out below are examples of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Ringmer

    Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Please supply a car parking plan. 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. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company?

What does commercial conveyancing in Ringmer cover?

Non domestic conveyancing in Ringmer covers a broad range of services, supplied by qualified solicitors, relating to business premises. By way of example, this area of conveyancing can cover the sale or purchase of freehold business premises or, more commonly, the assignment of existing business tenancies or the drafting of new leasing arrangements. Commercial conveyancing solicitors can also offer advice on the sale of business assets, commercial mortgages and the termination of tenancies.

My partner and I are purchasing a garden flat in Ringmer. At the time of instructing our property lawyer, they assured us that they were on all major UK lender panels. Our mortgage broker contacted us just now to say that they don't seem to be on the Leeds Building Society approved list. Were it to be true, what should we do? Do we just pick a different conveyancing practitioner that is on their panel or do we cover the costs for separate representation, with Leeds Building Society appointing their own preferred solicitor.

When purchasing a property with the benefit of a mortgage it is standard for the buyer’s solicitors to also act for the purchaser's lender. In order to act for a bank or building society a conveyancing practitioner has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the conveyancing practitioner to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict conditions which the property lawyer has to satisfy. Some banks now insist their panel firms to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your solicitor should call Leeds Building Society to discover if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own lawyers to represent them. You are not legally obliged to appoint a law firm on Leeds Building Society's conveyancing panel as you are at liberty to use your preferred Ringmer lawyers, in which case it will likely add costs, and it may delay matters as you have another set of people involved.
