When reviewing online forums for a high-quality solicitor in Saltash, many comment that I must look for a CQS assured solicitor. Can you explain what CQS is?
The Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme is the recognised quality mark for legal experts in the legal transfer of properties, trusted by some of the UK's biggest mortgage companies. Four years ago the Conveyancing Quality Scheme was officially recognised by the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML). CQS is not a scheme offered by the Council of Licensed Conveyancing. Saltash is one of the numerous areas of the UK where there are Accredited solicitors.
I am purchasing a terrace house in Saltash. Our aim is to an extension at the rear at the property.Will legal work on the property include enquiries to determine if these works are permitted?
Your solicitor should review the deeds as conveyancing in Saltash can sometimes identify restrictions in the title deeds which prevent certain alterations or need the consent of another owner. Some works call for local authority planning consent and approval in accordance building regulations. Some areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. You should check these things with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.
I have a mortgage with Principality for my property in Saltash. Conveyancing has been completed a year ago. Should I wish to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Principality?
Your original mortgage agreement with Principality will provide that you need their approval in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Principality’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will allow you to rent 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 Principality directly. You need not do this via a Principality conveyancing panel lawyer.
I was told three weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Virgin Money. Is it usual for Virgin Money to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Saltash is approved on their conveyancing panel? Virgin Money have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their Professional Indemnity Insurance Schedule.
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Virgin Money to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
I am planning on selling our house in Saltash and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Saltash lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers used a factory type conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Saltash. We have lived in Saltash for 4 years we know of no issue. Is it a good idea to contact our local Authority to seek confirmation that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)
I have justbeen informed that Arc property Solicitors have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Saltash for a purchase of a freehold house 9 months ago. How can I establish that my home is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?
The easiest method to check if the property is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Saltash conveyancing specialists.
