Last February we completed a house move in Tilbury. We have noticed several issues with the house which we believe were omitted in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? Can you clarify the type of searches that needed to have been conducted for conveyancing in Tilbury?
It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are relate to conveyancing in Tilbury. Conveyancing searches and due diligence initiated as part of the legal transfer of property are carried out to help avoid problems. As part of the process, the vendor answers a document known as a Seller’s Property Information Form. answers ends up being incorrect, you could possibly take legal action 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 Tilbury.
As someone not used to conveyancing in Tilbury what’s the number one tip you can impart concerning the legal transfer of property in Tilbury
Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Tilbury and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there is lots of opportunity for friction between you and others involved in the home moving process. E.g., the seller, property agent and even potentially a bank. Choosing a law firm for your conveyancing in Tilbury is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY party in the process whose interest is to protect your legal interests and to keep you safe.
We are witnessing a worrying ongoing adversarial element to conveyancing- someone has to be at fault for the process being so protracted. We recommend that you must always trust your conveyancer above the other players when it comes to the legal assignment of property.
I am selling my flat in Tilbury. Will my conveyancer need to be required to be on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel in order to deal with redeeming my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their requirements fairly frequently currently.
My lawyer has informed me that absentee landlord insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Tilbury?
The appropriate level of absentee landlord indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Santander and Skipton Building Society. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.
We have agreed to purchase a house in Tilbury. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Barclays be concerned?
As you are obtaining a mortgage with Barclays your lawyer must check the formal requirements contained in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Barclays. The CML Handbook includes minimum requirements for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to Barclays where a lease does not satisfy these specifications. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not limited to Tilbury.
I was told four weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by RBS. Is it usual for RBS to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Tilbury is approved on their conveyancing panel? RBS have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for RBS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the RBS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
