I am purchasing an apartment in Tring. My Conveyancer is not listed on the bank approved panel. Can I still retain my Tring conveyancing solicitor even though they are excluded from the lender list of approved lawyers?
You must use a solicitor to deal with the legal work required if you require a loan to buy your property. The conveyancer will conduct all the relevant legal checks on the property, ensuring that you’re properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the necessary mortgage documentation is in order. You may select a Tring lawyer of your choice. However, where the conveyancer selected is not a member of the lender conveyancing panel additional charges will be levied as separate legal representation will be required by them. Lender panel applications can be submitted, so if your solicitor has not in the past sought membership they should take the opportunity to apply.
Will our solicitor be raising questions concerning flooding as part of the conveyancing in Tring.
The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for conveyancers dealing with homes in Tring. Some people will buy a property in Tring, fully aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory building insurance, or sell the property. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.
Lawyers are not qualified to give advice on flood risk, but there are a various searches that may be carried out by the purchaser or by their conveyancers which will give them a better appreciation of the risks in Tring. The standard information supplied to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a usual question of the seller to find out whether the premises has ever been flooded. If flooding has previously occurred and is not disclosed by the vendor, then a buyer may issue a claim for damages as a result of such an inaccurate answer. A purchaser’s lawyers should also carry out an enviro search. This should higlight if there is any known flood risk. If so, further investigations will need to be made.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our house are lost. The solicitors who did the conveyancing in Tring 10 years ago no longer exist. What are my options?
Assuming you have a registered title the information relating to your proprietorship will be documented by the Land Registry with a Title Number. It is possible to execute a search at the Land Registry, identify your house and secure up to date copies of the Registered Entries for a small fee. Where the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will usually retain a file duplicate of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be retrieved for twenty pounds.
