Is it correct that all Shotton CQS (Conveyancing Quality Scheme) solicitors are on the Co-operative conveyancing list of approved solicitors?
It is true that some banks and building societies now use CQS as the kick off point for Panel approval such as HSBC and Santander. CQS accreditation however is no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. That being said,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for solicitor practices wishing to join their approved list of conveyancing solicitors.
I can not fathom if my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Shotton bank branch on a couple of occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they will lend. My Shotton conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I have no idea who is right.
Provided that the property lawyer is on the lender approved list, they must adhere to the CML Handbook conditions for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in June 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Co-operative are being a right pain. The Shotton solicitor who is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Co-operative are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Co-operative have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Co-operative have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Co-operative may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
We are purchasing a property and the conveyancer has mentioned Chancel Repair to which the house may be liable given it’s proximity to the area of such a church. He has suggested insurance. Is this strictly warranted for conveyancing in Shotton
Unless a prior purchase of the property took place after 12 October 2013 you can expect conveyancing practitioners delivering conveyancing in Shotton to continue to recommend a chancel search and or insurance against a claim.
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and identified one close by in Shotton I like with a park and station nearby, however it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Shotton in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
If you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
