Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Sheen Park

I am buying a property for cash in Sheen Park. I have resided for the last 20 years in Sheen Park. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. As I have knowledge of the area and road intimately must I have all the conveyancing searches?

If you not getting a mortgage, then all but one or two of the Sheen Park conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your conveyancer will 'advise', no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches completed, but she has a professional duty to do this. One thing to consider; if you are intend to dispose of the house one day, it will likely be be of interest to your future buyer what the searches reveal. On occasion properties with no practical issues can still reveal adverse search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Sheen Park should be able to give you some helpful guidance here.

My conveyancer has informed me that restrictive coveneant insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Sheen Park?

The right level of restrictive coveneant indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Santander and Leeds Building Society. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to borrowers take out such policies.

I'm the sole recipient of my late grandmother’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Sheen Park. The Sheen Park property was put into my name in October. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a CML six month 'rule', meaning my property ownership may be treated the same way as though I had purchased 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 could be impacted by that. How practical a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this obligation primarily exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.

We had appointed conveyancing lawyers with offices in Sheen Park on the Skipton solicitor panel. They are now charging me a further amount for handling the Skipton mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Skipton?

As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your lawyer may levy a fee for this. The fee is not dictated by Skipton but by your Sheen Park solicitor. Some firms on the Skipton panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee but many practices incorporate it on their overall fee.

The search will provide information on, amongst other things, details on planning applications relevant to the premises (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of thirteen topic areas.
