Me and my partner are about to exchange buying a property in Werrington but as a consequence of damage from a small fire at the property I have was able negotiate compensation from the seller in the sum of £3k by way of a adjustment in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of a side agreement but Coventry BS are not allowing this. Why were they notified?
The solicitor being on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel is duty bound to advise Coventry BS of any changes to the sale price. If you prohibit your lawyer to notify the reduction to Coventry BS then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Coventry BS and you would have to appoint a new lawyer for your conveyancing in Werrington.
Can you clarify what the consequences are if my solicitor is suspended from the Skipton Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Werrington?
First, this is a very rare occurrence. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.
How does conveyancing in Werrington differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Werrington contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because developers in Werrington typically acquire the real estate, 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 Werrington or who has acted in the same development.
I have just appointed agents to market my 2 bed flat in Werrington. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, however I have just had a yearly maintenance charge demand – Do I pay up?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should pay the invoice as normal as all ground rent and maintenance payments will be apportioned on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
