Will my conveyancing lawyers need to check that the building insurance when buying a house in Winchcombe. My lender is Nationwide Building Society

Nationwide Building Society have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook. As of 4/1/2021, the requirements read as follows :

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am new to the home moving as a 1st time buyer of a two bedroom flat in Winchcombe. Do I collect the keys to the premises on the completion date from my conveyancer? If this is the case, I will use a local conveyancing solicitor in Winchcombe?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Your solicitors will electronically transfer the purchase money to the vendor’s lawyers, and once they have received this, you should be called to pick up the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this happens early afternoon.

Is there a list of Co-operative panel solicitors in Winchcombe on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?

No. There is no such tool on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association websites. A small selection of lenders make their panel listings visible on the web. Where you are seeking to appoint a Winchcombe lawyer on the Co-operative please use our facility.

It is not clear whether my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Winchcombe building society branch on numerous occasions and was advised it wasn't an issue and they will lend. My Winchcombe conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- called and was told they would not lend based on their specific requirements. Who do I believe?

The lawyer has to follow the CML Handbook Part 2 specifications for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

Should commercial conveyancing searches reveal proposed roadworks that may affect a commercial premises in Winchcombe?

Its becoming the norm that commercial conveyancing solicitors in Winchcombe will conduct a SiteSolutions Highways report as it dramatically cuts the time that conveyancers expend in researching accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Winchcombe. The report sets out definitive data on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Winchcombe.

For every commercial conveyancing transaction in Winchcombe it is critical to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site. The absence of identifying developments where adoption procedures have not been dealt with adequately could cause delays to Winchcombe commercial conveyancing deals as well as present a risk to future intentions for the site. These searches are not carried out for residential conveyancing in Winchcombe.

I own a terraced Georgian house in Winchcombe. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Accord Mortgages Ltd. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same address. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?

You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Winchcombe and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also question the position with your conveyancing lawyer who conducted the work.

Am I best advised to instruct a Winchcombe conveyancing solicitor in close proximity to the house I am buying? An old friend can conduct the conveyancing but his firm is located 400kilometers drive away.

The benefit of a local Winchcombe conveyancing practice is that you can attend the office to sign paperwork, present your identification documents and apply pressure on them where appropriate. Having local Winchcombe know how is a benefit. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who instructed your friend and in the main were content that should outweigh using an unfamiliar Winchcombe conveyancing lawyer just because they are local.
