I am buying a property mortgage free in Ringwood. I have lived for the previous 20 years in Ringwood. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. As I have knowledge of the area and road very well should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?
In the absence of a home loan, then all but one or two of the Ringwood conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your solicitor will 'advise', no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches completed, but she is duty bound to do this. Do take into account; if you are likely to dispose of the house at a future date, it will be of interest to your prospective purchaser what the searches determine. There are plenty of instances where premises with no practical issues can still reveal adverse search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Ringwood will be able to give you some constructive guidance concerning this.
My bid for a property was accepted at auction in Ringwood. Conveyancing is needed. What are my next steps?
Having for all intents and purposes signed on the dotted line you should choose a conveyancing lawyer as a matter of urgency as you are facing a fast approaching deadline in which to complete the deal. All auction property will have a corresponding legal pack. This will include evidence of title and search results. Where you are dealing with leasehold premises the auction pack should include a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing paperwork specific to leasehold premises. You should give this to your appointed conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible. You also need to ensure that that you have the requisite funding in place to complete on the on the contractual date .
We expect to receive a AIP from Skipton this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Skipton recommend any Ringwood solicitors on the Skipton conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Ringwood solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Skipton conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Skipton through the process.
The mortgage over my property is with Aldermore for my property in Ringwood. Conveyancing has been completed months ago. In the event that I decide to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Aldermore?
You must advise Aldermore in advance of renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Aldermore’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Aldermore directly. You need not do this via a Aldermore conveyancing panel solicitor.
three months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Ringwood completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £215,000. 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 property 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.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in last month in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Ringwood is where the house is located. Can you offer any opinion?
Flying freeholds in Ringwood are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Ringwood you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Ringwood may ascertain 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.
