Just been in touch with my conveyancing lawyer in Wolviston who conducted the legals two years ago asking for a conveyancing quote based on the same type of house move (a leasehold premises and a freehold property) of almost identical values with a home loan from Birmingham Midshires.

How does conveyancing in Wolviston differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Wolviston come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because house builders in Wolviston tend to acquire the site, 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 Wolviston or who has acted in the same development.

Last October I purchased a leasehold house in Wolviston. Am I liable to pay service charges for periods before my ownership?

Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to be sure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

We are about to exchange on the purchase a house in Wolviston but as a consequence of wreckage from the recent storms I have negotiated recompense from the vendor of £3k in the form of a reduction in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of the conveyancing process but the lender will not permit this. Why were they involved?

Any lawyer being on the bank approved list is duty bound to disclose to the lender of any amendments to the purchase amount. If you did not allow your conveyancing practitioner to report the price change to your lender then they would have no choice but to disinstructing themselves from representing you and the mortgage company.
