Now that you are for all intents and purposes signed on the dotted line you now have to hire the services of a conveyancing solicitor as a matter of urgency as you are faced with a tight a fixed date to complete the property. All auction property should have a bespoke legal set of papers. This should include the copy title deeds, local authority and drainage searches. If you have purchased leasehold premises the auction papers may include a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing documentation specific to a leasehold property. You need to give this to the solicitor instructed by you at the earliest opportunity. You also need to ensure that you have funds in order to complete the transaction on the set completion date.

I have a mortgage with Lloyds for my property in Westbury Park. Conveyancing has been completed months ago. Should I wish to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Lloyds?

Lloyds must be informed of your intention in advance of letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Lloyds’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Lloyds will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Lloyds directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Lloyds conveyancing panel solicitor.

How does conveyancing in Westbury Park differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Westbury Park approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because new home sellers in Westbury Park tend to purchase 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Westbury Park or who has acted in the same development.

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Westbury Park ahead of retaining solicitors. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold element to the house. My surveyor advised that some lenders will refuse to give a mortgage on a flying freehold property.

It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different requirements from Halifax. If you e-mail us we can look into this further via the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Westbury Park. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Westbury Park to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.

Am I best advised to instruct a Westbury Park conveyancing solicitor who is local to the property I am purchasing? An old friend can perform the legal work but his firm is located 200kilometers drive away.

The primary upside of using a local Westbury Park conveyancing firm is that you can pop in to execute documents, deliver your identification documents and pester them if necessary. They will also have local intelligence which is a plus. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If if people you trust used your friend and they were happy that should trump using an unknown Westbury Park conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being Westbury Park based.
