I am hoping to receive a mortgage with Lloyds. I hope to enlist the help of a Licensed Conveyancer in Tibshelf. Does the Lloyds Conveyancing panel include Licensed Conveyancers?
The Lloyds approved solicitor list is, like many other lenders, associated to the CML or BSA, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.
A friend advised me that if I am purchasing in Tibshelf I should ask my conveyancer to execute a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?
This is a search is sometimes quoted for as part of the standard Tibshelf conveyancing searches. It is not a small document of about 40 pages, listing and setting out significant information about Tibshelf around the property and the people living there. It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Tibshelf Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime details, Local Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data about Tibshelf.
My wife and I own a 4 bedroom Edwardian property in Tibshelf. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Nationwide Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the exact same property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??
You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Tibshelf and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also enquire as to the position with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the work.
How does conveyancing in Tibshelf differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Tibshelf contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because new home sellers in Tibshelf usually purchase 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 property lawyers 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 Tibshelf or who has acted in the same development.
I'm converting the mortgage on my existing house to a BTL loan with Nottingham Building Society and intend to use the remaining equity as a deposit on another property. The location we are interested in is Tibshelf. Will your solicitors be able to act for the two banks and link together the two deals?
Do use our search tool on this page to ensure that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panels. Having checked that they are the solicitor will be able to simultaneously deal with the two deals but you should have a chat with you conveyancer and make clear your desired outcome and requirements.
