Will my conveyancing lawyers need to check that the building insurance for my purchase of a house in Sandy. My lender is Nationwide Building Society
Nationwide Building Society have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook. As of 24/11/2023, the requirements read as follows :
This question may be naive but I am unseasoned as FTB of a garden flat in Sandy. Do I pick up the keys to the property on completion from my conveyancer? If so, I will instruct a local conveyancing solicitor in Sandy?
On the day of completion you will not be required to attend the conveyancers office in Sandy. Your solicitors will electronically transfer the purchase money to the owner’s conveyancers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be able to collect the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.
I happen to be the single beneficiary of my late mum's will and I have everything in my name alone, including the house in Sandy. The Sandy property was put into my name in October. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship will be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the house in October. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The CML handbook mandates solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be caught by that. How practical a view lenders take of it, depend on the lender as this obligation principally exists to pick up on subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.
How can we know in advance if a Sandy conveyancing solicitor on the Lloyds panel is any good?

Assuming you have a registered title the information relating to your proprietorship will be recorded by HMLR under a Title Number. It is easy to perform a search at the Land Registry, find your house and obtain up to date copies of the Registered Entries for less than a fiver. If the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will usually hold a file copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be ordered for a small fee.
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Sandy I like with a park and station nearby, however it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Sandy suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
If you require a home loan that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.
