Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Shenley

I happen to be the sole recipient of my late grandmother’s will and I have everything in my name alone, including the my former home in Shenley. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in September. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship may be treated the same way as though I had purchased the property in September. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?

The CML handbook requires conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be affected by that. How sensible a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this provision is principally there to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of property.

Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Kent Reliance. Shenley conveyancing lawyers have been appointed. How long does it take for Kent Reliance to forward the offer to the lawyer?

There is no definitive answer here. Have Kent Reliance conducted the survey? Have you informed Kent Reliance as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.

At last I have had an offer on an apartment in Shenley agreed to, the owners do nevertheless have a tied purchase. The vendors have offered on a flat, however it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other properties booked. I have instructed a high street conveyancing solicitor in Shenley. What should be my next step? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Clydesdale?

It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (mortgage application is approx £1k, then valuation, Shenley conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you must check that your solicitor is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. As to the subsequent phase this very much dictated by the circumstances of your transaction, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market some home buyers will apply for a home loan with Clydesdale and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their lawyer to proceed with the conveyancing in Shenley.

Me and my brother have a terraced Edwardian house in Shenley. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Bank of Ireland. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same property. Is it worth asking Bank of Ireland to clarify?

You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Shenley and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also enquire as to the situation with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the work.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Shenley I like with open areas and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Shenley suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
