Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Yelverton

My partner and I have just bought a property in Yelverton. We have noticed several problems with the property which we consider were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? What searches should? have been ordered for conveyancing in Yelverton?

It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are unique to conveyancing in Yelverton. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated as part of the buying process are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, a seller fills in a questionnaire called a Seller’s Property Information Form. answers proves to be inaccurate, you may have a misrepresentation claim against the vendor for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Yelverton.

We wanted to use a conveyancing solicitor in Yelverton for our house move. Our broker has since notified us that our mortgage company Yorkshire Building Society won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unduly restrictive?

A bank may insist on an approved conveyancer act for it. Borrowers are expected to bear the charges for this. Please make use of our tool to select a solicitor to conduct conveyancing in Yelverton on the Yorkshire Building Society approved list of solicitors.

My solicitor has informed me that flying freehold insurance is required on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Yelverton conveyancing?

The right level of flying freehold indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Lloyds TSB Bank and The Royal Bank of Scotland. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.

Intending to buy a apartment in Yelverton. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Yelverton property lawyer is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel.

I had an offer accepted on a property in Yelverton on 27/9/2023, valuation was booked 4 days later, all came back fine. Property lawyer retained, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Barclays and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Barclays conveyancing panel. Are Barclays entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?

A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Barclays to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Barclays conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up as part of conveyancing in Yelverton?

Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Yelverton. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

I'm purchasing my first flat in Yelverton with a mortgage from Chelsea Building Society. The builders would not budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of additionals instead. The sale representative told me not to tell my solicitor about this extras as it may jeopardize my loan with Chelsea Building Society. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I am downsizing from my home. My previous solicitors closed down. It would be helpful to have a recommendation of a conveyancing firm. Im based in Yelverton if that makes things easier.
