Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Ringwood

I am nearing an exchange on a property in Ringwood and my mum and dad have transferred the ten percent deposit to my conveyancing practitioner. I am now informed that as the deposit has been sent from someone other than me my conveyancer needs to make a notification to my bank. I am advised that, in also acting for the lender he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I advised the mortgage company about my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for him to raise this?

Your property lawyer is legally required to clarify with mortgage company to ensure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only disclose this to your mortgage company if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

Is there a reason why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Ringwood is more expensive?

Ringwood leasehold properties involve far more paperwork than a freehold purchase, and therefore takes more time to examine and advise upon.Conveyancing will involve the lease having to be checked which is usually a lengthy document, queries raised to ensure that the covenants and conditions have been observed. If it is a flat there will be a management company in existence and the accounts of this will need to be checked and enquiries raised to ensure it is operating efficiently and that all monies due have been paid by the Seller to the company and if not ensuring that money is paid up to date or the appropriate undertakings obtained.

Please explain the implications if my solicitor is expelled from the RBS Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Ringwood?

The first thing to point out is that, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

Various online forums that I have frequented warn that are a common cause of delay in Ringwood house deals. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released findings of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure within the top 10 causes of hindrances in the conveyancing process. Searches are not likely to feature in any delay in conveyancing in Ringwood.

I've found a house that appears to be perfect, at a great figure which is making it all the more appealing. I have subsequently been informed that it's a leasehold rather than freehold. I am assuming that there are particular concerns purchasing a leasehold house in Ringwood. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed. Will my lawyers set out the risks of buying a leasehold house in Ringwood ?

Most houses in Ringwood are freehold rather than leasehold. This is one of the situations where having a local solicitor who is familiar with the area can help the conveyancing process. It is clear that you are purchasing in Ringwood in which case you should be looking for a Ringwood conveyancing solicitor and check that they are used to transacting on leasehold houses. First you will need to check the unexpired lease term. As a leaseholder you will not be entirely free to do whatever you want with the house. The lease comes with conditions for example requiring the landlord’sconsent to carry out alterations. You may also be required to pay a contribution towards the upkeep of the communal areas where the property is located on an estate. Your conveyancer should advise you fully on all the issues.
