Our solicitor has discovered a defect with the lease for the property we are purchasing in Towyn. The other side have suggested defective title insurance as a solution. We are happy with insurance and will cover the costs. Our lawyer says that he must check that the bank is happy with this solution. Who is the client here, us or the mortgage company ?
Notwithstanding that you have a mortgage offer from the mortgage company does not mean to say that the property will meet their provisions for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions. You and the mortgage company are the client. The appropriate lender specifications have to be complied with.
At what point can the exchange of contracts take place for sale conveyancing in Towyn and am I required to attend the solicitors office?
Where you are local to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Towyn you are invited in to sign documents. However, the lender approved solicitors we recommend supply a countrywide conveyancing service and give just as comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The executing of the contract is not the critical part. Signing on the dotted line simply enables the firm to exchange contracts when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where a lengthy "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Towyn)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.
We are selling our house in Towyn. Does my lawyer have to be required to be on the Principality conveyancing panel in order to deal with repayment of my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Principality 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.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Towyn is the location of the property. Can you offer any guidance?
Flying freeholds in Towyn are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Towyn you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Towyn may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
