I can see plenty of information on this site concerning conveyancing in Ulverston but what is your top tip for finding the right conveyancer in Ulverston

We would encourage you not to base your choice on the lowest Ulverston conveyancing fees. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of the deal.

After shopping around on the internet I have found a Ulverston lawyer having made sure that they are on the TSB conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

TSB will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually TSB will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Ulverston surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

My offer on a semi in Ulverston has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The sellers have put an offer on somewhere, however it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other apartments booked. I have chosen a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Ulverston. What do I do now? When do I get the mortgage application with Aldermore started?

It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Ulverston conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you should ensure that your solicitor is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. As to the next stages this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. During a rising market some home buyers would apply for the mortgage with Aldermore and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their conveyancing practitioner to press on with the conveyancing in Ulverston.

I am buying my first flat in Ulverston with a mortgage from Chelsea Building Society. The builders would not budge the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of additionals instead. The house builders rep suggested that I not to tell my solicitor about the side-deal as it may affect my loan with the bank. Is this normal?.

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.

Last December I purchased a leasehold house in Ulverston. Do I have any liability for service charges for periods before completion of my purchase?

In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

Ulverston Leasehold Conveyancing - Examples of Queries before Purchasing

    Is there a share of the freehold? You should want to discover as much as you can regarding the managing agents as they can either make your living at the property much easier or problematic. As the owner of a leasehold property you are often at the mercy of the managing agents both financially and when it comes to day to day issues like the upkeep of the common parts. Enquire of prospective neighbours what they think of them. On a final note, investigate as to the dates that the maintenance fees are due to the managing agents and precisely what it includes. What is the length of the lease?
