Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Royton

I was informed today by my broker that my Royton lawyer is not on the mortgage company Solicitor panel. What can I do to be sure if this is correct?

Your first step should be to contact your Royton lawyer directly. It is reasonable to expect your lawyer to advise you of the situation. If they are not on the panel they may be able to suggest a Royton conveyancing firm that is on the approved list of lawyers for your bank.

Last September we completed a house move in Royton. We have since encountered a number of problems with the property which we suspect were omitted in the conveyancing searches. Is there anything we can do? What searches should? have been ordered as part of conveyancing in Royton?

The question is not clear as to the nature of the problems and if they are relate to conveyancing in Royton. Conveyancing searches and due diligence undertaken during the legal transfer of property are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a property owner completes a form called a SPIF. If the information turns out to be inaccurate, then you may have a claim against the seller for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Royton.

My husband and I wish to acquire a newbuild flat in Royton with a residential mortgage from The Mortgage Works.We use our Royton conveyancing lawyer but The Mortgage Works advised that she’s not listed on their approved list of firms. It seems we have no choice but to instruct a The Mortgage Works panel firm or retain our local solicitor and pay for a The Mortgage Works panel lawyer to represent them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that The Mortgage Works use our lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The home loan offered to you is subject to its various provisions, a common one being that conveyancers needs to be on the The Mortgage Works conveyancing panel. Until recently, most banks had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for The Mortgage Works

How does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my commercial property in Royton and how can your lawyers assist?

The particular law that you refer to affords a safeguard to commercial lessees, granting the legal entitlement to make a request to court for a continuation of occupancy when the lease comes to an end. There are limited grounds where a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are complicated. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Royton. Before I set the wheels in motion I would like to find out the remaining lease term.

Assuming the lease is registered - and almost all are in Royton - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

Royton Conveyancing for Leasehold Flats - A selection of Questions you should consider Prior to Purchasing

    In the main the cost for major works are not included within service charges, although there some managing agents in Royton ask leasehold owners to contribute towards a reserve fund and this is used to offset against major works. Does the lease have onerous restrictions? Where a Royton lease has less than eighty years it will have adverse implications on the marketability of the property. Check with your mortgage company that they are content with residual term of the lease. A short lease means that you will almost definitely have to extend the lease at some point and you need to have some idea of what this would cost. For most Roytonlease extensions you will be required to have been the owner of the property for a couple of years before you are legally able to extend the lease.

My mum and dad are having difficulties in finding their Royton land registry title on the online search facility. They have a vague recollection back in the 70’s when they bought the house there were complications concerning Royton not being identified on some systems.

The vast majority of residences in Royton should be revealed. Have you limited your search to just the postcode. Ordinarily it should disclose all the residences within that postcode. Where registered it will be there with a title number. Where they bought 48 years ago it's conceivable it may be unrecorded. The property may still be revealed but with the title number shown 'na'. In this scenario you will need to locate the original title deeds which may be with your parent’s mortgage company.
