Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Strawberry Hill

Last May we completed a house move in Strawberry Hill. We have noticed several problems with the property which we believe were missed in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? What searches should? have been carried out as part of conveyancing in Strawberry Hill?

The query is not clear as what problems have arisen and if they are relate to conveyancing in Strawberry Hill. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken during the legal transfer of property are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a property owner answers a form called a Seller’s Property Information Form. answers turns out to be inaccurate, then you may have a claim against the vendor for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Strawberry Hill.

I have 7378 less than 75 years unexpired on my lease and need a lease extension for my apartment in Strawberry Hill. Conveyancing solicitors on the Bank of Ireland panel can deal with such extensions correct?

Most leasehold conveyancing experts should be able to deal with a lease extension. if you are getting a mortgage then your lender may insist that the lease be extended before competition. Bank of Ireland have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook in relation to minimum unexpired lease terms. As of 27/7/2021 the requirements read as follows :

Yes, subject to a minimum lease term of 85 years. The unexpired lease term must be at least the mortgage term plus 45 years. See also 5.14.9

How does conveyancing in Strawberry Hill differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Strawberry Hill approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because developers in Strawberry Hill usually buy the site, 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Strawberry Hill or who has acted in the same development.

I was advised by two or three local property agents in Strawberry Hill to locate a solicitor using your seach tool. What’s the financial inducement for Estate Agents to promote your site over and above another?

We don’t make any referral fee for pointing buyers and sellers our way. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as members of the public would think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.

My step-father has recommend that I instruct his conveyancers in Strawberry Hill. Should I choose my own property lawyer?

Much as we are happy to recommend a Strawberry Hill conveyancing lawyer the best way to select a conveyancing practitioner is to get referrals from friends or relatives who have actually experience in using the firm that you are are thinking of instructing.

What is the reason for new build conveyancing in Strawberry Hill being more expensive?

Buying a brand new property is completely distinct from the normal house purchase conveyancing in Strawberry Hill. For a start sellers normally require contracts to exchange very quickly, so there is a lot of pressure on your solicitor to make sure everything is in order. Furthermore new build premises frequently involve the checking of adoption of highways, drains, planning considerations, building warranties or architects certificates. Lenders obligations are also more detailed. Due to the complex nature of the process for these types of properties, the conveyancing new build fees are higher than normal.
