Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Topsham

I require conveyancing for an apartment in a relatively new development (seven years old) in Topsham. Almost all the properties are already occupied. Do I need carry out the conveyancing searches for my conveyancing in Topsham?

Where you are obtaining a loan, your lender will require some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Topsham conveyancing searches are for you to decide upon. Your solicitor, will ’encourage’, perhaps in the strongest possible terms, that you should not go ahead without searches, but he or she has a professional duty to do this. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. But if you demand that your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or ask you to appoint a different lawyer for your conveyancing in Topsham.

Please explain the implications if my solicitor is suspended from the UBS Conveyancing panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Topsham?

The first thing to point out is that, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit at a cost.

I'm buying a new build house in Topsham with a mortgage from TSB. The developers refused to budge the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative told me not to tell my solicitor about this side-deal as it will affect my loan with TSB. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £245,000 and found one close by in Topsham I like with a park and transport links nearby, however it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Topsham in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
