Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Stilton

I require conveyancing for an apartment in a fairly new development (6 years built) in Stilton. The vast majority the properties are already disposed of. Is it strictly necessary to order neighbourhood searches as part of conveyancing in Stilton?

Where you are obtaining a mortgage, your lender will need some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Stilton conveyancing searches are for you to decide upon. No doubt your conveyancer, will 'advise', perhaps in the strongest possible terms, that you should not go ahead without searches, but he or she is duty bound in this regard. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. But if you demand that your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or ask you to appoint a different lawyer for your conveyancing in Stilton.

My uncle passed away 10 months ago and as sole heir and executor I was left the property in Stilton. The house had a relatively small loan left on it of around £8000. I want to have the title changed into my name whilst I re-mortgage to Principality, pay off the mortgage. Is this allowed?

Given you plan to refinance then Principality will require that you use a conveyancer on the Principality conveyancing panel. Here is link to the Land Registry online guidance around what to do when a property owner dies. This will help you to understand the registration process behind changing the details re the registered title. in your case it would appear that you are effectively purchasing the property from the estate. Your Principality conveyancing panel solicitor pays the new mortgage money into the estate, the estate pays off the old mortgage, the charge is released and you become the owner and the Principality mortgage is registered as a charge at the Land Registry.

I need some expedited conveyancing in Stilton as I have a deadline to complete within one month. A mortgage is not required. Is it possible to avoid the conveyancing searches to save money and time?

four months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Stilton completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

How does conveyancing in Stilton differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Stilton come to us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because developers in Stilton typically acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Stilton or who has acted in the same development.
