In the event thatI were to acquire a straightforward housein Somersham mortgage fee and dispense with a survey and no local authority searches how much should I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Somersham?
The only reduction in fees you would achieve is the Somersham conveyancing searches. A conveyancer still be obliged to do everything else - money laundering, liaising with your vendors lawyer, SDLT return, register the property etc. You might save a bit for them not needing to register a mortgage but it won't be a lot.
We are purchasing a apartment in Somersham. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a solicitor? On the day of competition we will need to send money into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our deposit?
Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.
Forgive me if this question is silly but I am new to the home buying as a 1st time buyer of a ground floor flat in Somersham. Do I receive the keys to the premises on completion from my conveyancer? If this is the case, I will appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Somersham?
On the day of completion you do not need to go to the conveyancers office in Somersham. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the completion advance to the seller's solicitors, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be able to pick up the keys from the selling Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen early afternoon.
Our offer on a house in Somersham has been accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have offered on a flat, but it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other apartments booked. I have instructed a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Somersham. What do I do now? When do I get the mortgage application with Virgin Money going?
It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses prematurely (home loan application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Somersham conveyancing search fees, etc). The first thing to do is check that your lawyer is on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. As to the subsequent steps this very much dictated by the specifics of your transaction, motivation for the property and on the state of the market. In a rising market many purchasers will apply for a home loan with Virgin Money and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their solicitor to move forward with searches.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified during conveyancing in Somersham?
Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Somersham. 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…’
The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build apartment in Somersham. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one round the corner in Somersham I like with a park and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Somersham suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?
Should you need a home loan that many years will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
