Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Ware

My husband and I are getting closer to an exchange on a property in Ware and my parents have sent the exchange deposit to my solicitor. I am now advised that as the deposit has not come from me my property lawyer needs to make a notification to my lender. Apparently, in also acting for the lender he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I advised the mortgage company regarding my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really necessary for this now to be an issue?

Your property lawyer is obliged to check with lender to ensure that they know that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own resources. The solicitor can only reveal this to your mortgage company if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

It is is a decade since I bought my house in Ware. Conveyancing solicitors have recently been retained on the sale but I am unable to locate the deeds. Is this a major issue?

You need not be too concerned. First there is a chance that the deeds will be retained by your lender or they could be in the possession of the lawyers who handled the purchase. Secondly in all probability the title will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers acquiring current official copies of the land registers. Most conveyancing in Ware relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is not registered it is more tricky but is not insurmountable.

We are getting the release of further monies on our mortgage from Kent Reliance as we intend to conduct improvements to our property in Ware. Do we need to select a bricks and mortar Ware solicitor on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel to deal with the paperwork?

Kent Reliance would not normally instruct firms on their conveyancing panel to handle the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the Kent Reliance panel.

I had a mortgage agreed in principle with Skipton. Ware conveyancing lawyers were instructed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Skipton?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Skipton completed the survey? Have you advised Skipton as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Skipton conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

I have paid off my mortgage with Co-operative. I assume I don't need a Ware lawyer on the Co-operative panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your Co-operative mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Co-operative mortgage from the register. Co-operative, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Co-operative has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Co-operative has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Co-operative mortgage has been paid off.

My husband and I plan to buy our first property in Ware. Conveyancing practitioner already chosen. The broker suggested that a survey is not needed as the property is just 20 yrs old.

At the very least you should have a Home Buyer's Report. Given the residence was built over a decade ago the property will not benefit from a warranty, so you don't want to take a risk. For a property that age with no signs of problems a Home Buyer's report may be sufficient. The report should highlight any apparent problems and suggest further investigation if relevant. If there are any indications of problems seek a full structural survey.
