I can't travel far from Rochdale. Can you please explain the reason why all Rochdale solicitors are not on all mortgage company panels?
Pre- 2008 most banks exhibited an attitude to risk which is different than today. The financial regulator in 2010 carried out a thematic review into fraud which concluded: know the conveyancers on your panel. Accordingly, banks have since looked to extract more data from law firms about their processes and the staff who work for them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum volume of transactions. Thousands of law practices have found themselves excluded from lender panels even though they had an exemplary disciplinary record, no complaints and zero claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Such firms found it impossible meet the criteria of volume of transactions the mortgage companies required.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our house are lost. The lawyers who conducted the conveyancing in Rochdale 10 years ago no longer exist. What are my options?
Gone are the days when you need to have the physical deeds to prove you own the land or property, given that the Land Registry hold details of all registered land or property electronically.
I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one close by in Rochdale I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Rochdale in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.
Taking into account that I will soon spend £400,000 on a house in Rochdale I wish to have a conversation with the conveyancer concerning theconveyancing before giving the go ahead to the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?
