We have agreed to purchase a house in Aylesbury. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Coventry BS be concerned?
Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Coventry BS your lawyer must check the formal instructions outlined in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Coventry BS. The CML Handbook sets out minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to Coventry BS where a lease does not comply with these conditions. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not restricted to Aylesbury.
Planning on purchasing a maisonette in Aylesbury. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Leeds Building Society 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 Aylesbury conveyancing practitioner is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel.
How does conveyancing in Aylesbury differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Aylesbury contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because house builders in Aylesbury usually buy 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 conveyancers 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 Aylesbury or who has acted in the same development.
I decided to have a survey carried out on a property in Aylesbury prior to retaining conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. Our surveyor has said that some lenders tend refuse to give a mortgage on such a house.
It depends who your proposed lender is. Santander has different requirements for example to Halifax. If you contact us we can investigate further with the appropriate lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Aylesbury. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Aylesbury to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.
