Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Trimdon

I am six weeks into the sale of my home in Trimdon and the EA has just text me to warn that the purchasers are appointing a new law firm. The excuse is that the mortgage company will only engage with solicitors on their approved list. On what basis would a big named mortgage company only work with certain law firms rather the firm that they want to choose for their conveyancing in Trimdon ?

Lenders have always had an approved set of law firms that can act for them, but in the past few years big names such as Lloyds Banking Group, have considered and reduced their conveyancing panel– in some cases removing conveyancing firms who have worked with them for many years.

Lenders point to the increase in fraud as the reason for the cull – criteria have been stiffened as a smaller panel is easier to monitor. Banks tend not to reveal how many solicitors have been dropped, claiming the information is commercially sensitive, but the Law Society says it is hearing daily from firms that have been removed from panels. Some are unaware that they have been dropped until contacted by a borrower who has instructed them as might be the situation in your buyers' case. Your purchasers are not going to have any impact on this.

How does conveyancing in Trimdon differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Trimdon contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because builders in Trimdon usually purchase the site, 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 used to new build conveyancing in Trimdon or who has acted in the same development.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Trimdon I like with open areas and station nearby, however it's only got 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Trimdon for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.

I want to rent out my leasehold apartment in Trimdon. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask him. Do I need to ask my freeholder for permission?

A small minority of properties in Trimdon do contain a provision to say that subletting is only permitted with prior consent from the landlord. The landlord cannot unreasonably withhold but, in such cases, they would need to see references. Experience dictates that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting consent.
