Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Shillington

Our lawyer has uncovered a defect with the lease for the apartment we are purchasing in Shillington. The seller’s lawyers have put forward defective title insurance as a workaround. We are happy with insurance and will pay for it. Our conveyancing practitioner has advised that he must check that the lender is content with this solution. Are we the client or is the mortgage company ?

Even though you have a mortgage offer from the mortgage company does not mean to say that the property will meet their provisions for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. You and the lender are the client. These conveyancing instructions must be adhered to.

We are getting a further advance on our mortgage from Santander as we want to carry out improvements to our home in Shillington. Do we need to appoint a local Shillington solicitor on the Santander conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?

Santander do not ordinarily instruct a member of their conveyancing panel to handle such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Santander list.

My wife and I are spending time viewing flats in Shillington and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it premature to have a solicitor in place? I will be getting a home loan with Nottingham.

It would be prudent to instigate your search sooner rather than later. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their contact information on to the estate agent. Given that you are getting a mortgage with Nottingham, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Nottingham conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.

Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Shillington. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?

Almost all banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office. We understand that complaints to a lender are resolved very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.

My colleague suggested that if I am purchasing in Shillington I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

A search of this type is sometimes quoted for as part of the standard Shillington conveyancing searches. It is not a small document of about 40 pages, listing and setting out important information about Shillington around the property and the people living there. It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Shillington Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime details, Local Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data about Shillington.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified during conveyancing in Shillington?

Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Shillington. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

How does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my business property in Shillington and how can your lawyers assist?

The particular law that you refer to affords protection to commercial tenants, granting the right to make a request to court for a new lease and remain in occupation when the lease comes to an end. There are limited grounds where a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are involved. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing. Shillington is one of our hundreds of locations in which our lawyers have offices

I dont have enough spare cash to pay a 10% deposit on my house purchase in Shillington , but I still want to exchange. What can I do?

You can accept a lower deposit. Most property owners will accept a lesser deposit or even no deposit for a first time buyer or 100% mortgage. Be aware though that if you fail to complete you will still need to hand over a minimum of 10% of the purchase price regardless of how much deposit was agreed.

You can also agree a simultaneous exchange and completion as no deposit is required for this however neither party will be tied in until completion actually takes place and it can be risky if sellers change their mind at the last moment
