I am approaching an exchange on a house in Aberbargoed and my parents have sent the 10% deposit to my lawyer. I am now told that as the deposit has not arrived from me my property lawyer needs to make a notification to my mortgage company. Apparently, in also acting for the lender he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I informed the lender concerning my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really necessary for this now to hold matters up?
Your property lawyer is duty bound to check with mortgage company to ensure that they know that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only report this to your bank if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
My wife and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our house in Aberbargoed and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was built land that was not decontaminated. A high street Aberbargoed conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers used a national conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Aberbargoed. Having lived in Aberbargoed for 4 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to seek clarification need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same ailment)
I have todayfound out that Stirling Law have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Aberbargoed for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 10 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is in my name in the name of the previous owner?
The quickest method to see if the premises is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Aberbargoed conveyancing specialists.
