Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Selsdon

I am buying a property without a mortgage in Selsdon. I have resided for the previous twelve years in Selsdon. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. As I know the road and vicinity very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?

Provided that you do not need a mortgage, then all but one or two of the Selsdon conveyancing searches are optional. Your lawyer will try and sway you, perhaps strongly, that you should have searches carried out, but she has a professional duty to do this. One thing to take into account; if you are intend to dispose of the house at a future date, it will likely be be of relevance to your prospective purchaser what the searches disclose. On occasion premises with apparent issues can still show up unfavourable search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Selsdon will be able to give you some sensible guidance here.

We're in Selsdon, FTBs purchasing with a mortgage (lender is Santander , and our solicitor is on the Santander conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?

The fact that your lawyer is on the Santander conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no conveyancer should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.

I am assisting my sister sell her property in Selsdon. Does the conveyancing solicitor commission the EPC or it is for the seller to see to?

Following the demise of Home Packs, energy performance certificates was maintained a mandatory element of selling a house. An energy assessment needs to be to hand before the property is placed on the market. It is not as aspect of the sale process that lawyers ordinarily organise. Where you are using a Selsdon conveyancing solicitor they may be able to arrange energy performance certificates due to their relationships with reputable local accredited person

I am buying a detached bungalow in Selsdon. We would like to carry out a loft conversion at the property.Will legal investigations on the property involve checks to see if these alterations are allowed?

Your conveyancer will check the registered title as conveyancing in Selsdon can occasionally reveal restrictions in the title deeds which prevent certain alterations or need the consent of a 3rd party. Many works call for local authority planning permissions and approval under the building regulations. Some areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or impact extensions. You should check these things with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.

My conveyancer has informed me that lack of right of way insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Selsdon?

The right level of lack of right of way indemnity insurance depends on your lender. It would differ for example between Accord Mortgages Ltd and Leeds Building Society. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.

Have purchased a a semi-detached house in Selsdon , how long will it take for the Land Registry to register my ownership? My Selsdon conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure that my purchase is recorded.

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Selsdon registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry need to notify any 3rd persons or bodies. As of today roughly three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with within two weeks but occasionally there can be protracted delays. Registration takes place after the new owner is living at the premises so an expedited registration is not typically an essential issue but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

I decided to have a survey carried out on a property in Selsdon prior to instructing conveyancers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the property. The surveyor advised that some banks will refuse to give a loan on such a property.

It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different instructions from Halifax. Should you wish to call us we can check via the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Selsdon. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Selsdon especially if they regularly deal with such properties in Selsdon.

What is the difference between surveying and conveyancing in Selsdon?

Conveyancing - in Selsdon or anywhere in England and Wales - is the process of legally transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It therefore includes the investigation of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you are intending to buy and will help you discover the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you leverage for negotiating the purchase price down or asking the seller to fix the problems before you move in.
