I am purchasing a house without a mortgage in Tolworth. I have lived for the last 20 years in Tolworth. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. As I have knowledge of the area and road intimately should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?
Provided that you do not need a mortgage, then almost all of the Tolworth conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your lawyer will 'advise', no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches done, but he is duty bound to do this. Do take into account; if you are going to dispose of the house in the future, it will be of importance to your future buyer what the searches contain. There are plenty of instances where houses with no practical issues can still throw up detrimental search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Tolworth should provide you some helpful advice concerning this.
We are buying a end of terrace house in Tolworth. Our aim is to carry out a loft conversion at the house.Will legal investigations on the property involve enquiries to ascertain if these works are permitted?
Your conveyancer should review the registered title as conveyancing in Tolworth will on occasion reveal restrictions in the title documents which prohibit certain alterations or require the consent of a 3rd party. Many works need local authority planning consent and approval in accordance building regulations. Certain areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions. You should check these things with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
I had a mortgage agreed in principle with Barclays. Tolworth conveyancing solicitors were chosen. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Barclays?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have Barclays conducted the valuation? Have you informed Barclays as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Barclays conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
I was told two weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by Nationwide. Is it usual for Nationwide to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Tolworth is approved on their conveyancing panel? Nationwide have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Nationwide to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
