Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Upton

I am obtaining a mortgage offer from Santander. I intend to enlist the help of a Licensed Conveyancer in Upton. Does the Santander Solicitor panel include conveyancers regulated by the CLC?

The Santander conveyancing panel is, like many other lenders, represented by the CML or BSA, open to Licensed Conveyancers regulated by the CLC.

It is a dozen years since I purchased my house in Upton. Conveyancing solicitors have now been retained on the sale but I can't find the title deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?

You need not be too concerned. Firstly there is a chance that the deeds will be with your mortgage company or they may be in the possession of the lawyers who handled the purchase. Secondly in all probability the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers procuring up to date copy of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Upton relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your property is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is resolvable.

I just acquired a property at auction in Upton. Conveyancing is necessary. What happens now?

Now that you are exchanged you must choose a conveyancing lawyer soon as you are facing a fast approaching a fixed date to complete the deal. An auction property will ordinarily have an associated auction pack. This will include evidence of title and search results. If you have purchased leasehold property the legal pack may include a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing paperwork specific to leasehold premises. You need to pass this on to your appointed conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible. Do make sure that you have funds organised to complete on the date specified in the contract.

We had selected conveyancers locally in Upton on the Nationwide solicitor approved list. They have just invoiced me a further sum for the legal aspects of the Nationwide mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Nationwide?

Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms and Conditions or Quote then yes your lawyer is entitled to levy a fee for this. This fee is not set by Nationwide but by your Upton solicitor. Some firms on the Nationwide panel will quote ’dealing with mortgage’ fee but plenty of firms incorporate it on their overall fee.

I am expecting a AIP from Lloyds this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Lloyds recommend any Upton solicitors on the Lloyds conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?

You will need to appoint Upton solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Lloyds through the process.

Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Upton ahead of retaining lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. Our surveyor has said that some banks will refuse to grant a mortgage on this type of property.

It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different instructions for example to Nationwide. If you call us we can look into this further via the appropriate bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Upton. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

I need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor for freehold conveyancing in Upton. I happened to discover a site which seems to have the perfect offering If there is a chance to get all formalities done via email that would be ideal. Should I be concerned? What are the potential pitfalls?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?

We have reached the end of our tether in trying to purchase the freehold in Upton. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on premiums?

You certainly can. We can put you in touch with a Upton conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Upton premises is Various @ Colombus Square in January 2012. the Tribunal calculated the premiums to be paid for new leases for each of the flats in Mariners Walk to be £3822 and the premium to be paid for the new lease of 2 Knights Court to be £4439. This case related to 13 flats. The unexpired residue of the current lease was 76 years.

When it comes to leasehold conveyancing in Upton what are the most common lease problems?

Leasehold conveyancing in Upton is not unique. All leases are drafted differently and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain provisions are wrong. The following missing provisions could result in a defective lease:

    A duty to insure the building

You could encounter difficulties when selling your property if you have a defective lease as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage. Accord Mortgages Ltd, Skipton Building Society, and Bank of Ireland all have express conveyancing instructions when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is defective they may refuse to grant the mortgage, forcing the purchaser to pull out.
