Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Sudbury

Do the conveyancing lawyers Indexed on your site execute auction conveyancing in Sudbury?

We know of a few auction solicitors we can put you in touch with those conducting auction conveyancing. Sudbury is one of hundreds of areas of in which our lawyers have offices.

I am refinancing my house in Sudbury, does my lawyer need to be on the Kent Reliance Solicitor panel?

There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Kent Reliance will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is much more potential for delays and confusion with an additional lawyer added to the mix, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.

I'm the single beneficiary of my late mum's estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Sudbury. The Sudbury property was put into my name in June. I plan to dispose of the house. I understand that there is a CML six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship may be treated the same way as though I had purchased the house in June. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The CML handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be caught by that. How sensible a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the lender as this clause chiefly exists to pick up on subsales or the flipping of property.

We have agreed to purchase a house in Sudbury. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Nationwide have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

Given that your lender is Nationwide your lawyer must comply with the conveyancing requirements set out in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Nationwide. The CML Handbook sets out minimum requirements for solar panel roof-space leases, and property lawyers are required to report to Nationwide where a lease does not satisfy these specifications. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not limited to Sudbury.

I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in October 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Co-operative are being pedantic. The Sudbury solicitor who is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution 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.

My partner and I are planning on selling our property in Sudbury and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being built land that was not decontaminated. A high street Sudbury conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers instructed a factory type conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Sudbury. Having lived in Sudbury for three years we know that this is a non issue. Do we contact our local Authority to seek clarification that there is no issue.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm already. What do they say? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same ailment)

I am buying a new build apartment in Sudbury. Conveyancing is a frightening process 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 legal work.

Here are examples of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Sudbury

    The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?

We're new to the buying process - had an offer accepted, yet the agent advised that the vendor will only go ahead if we use the agent's recommended lawyers as they want an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a high street solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Sudbury

It is improbable the vendors are driving this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Speak to the owners direct and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to instruct your own,trusted Sudbury conveyancing solicitors - as opposed tothe ones that will give the negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or achieve conveyancing thresholds pre-set by corporate headquarters.
