I am not in a position to travel far from Beaminster. I would like to know the logic why all Beaminster property lawyers are not on all lender panels?
As unjust as it may seem for lenders to restrict who can act for them, from the public’s or lawyer’s standpoint, the the contrary view is that mortgage companies are increasingly anxious and feel it imperative to protect them against mortgage fraud. As a consequence of this concern lenders are limiting their conveyancing panel to a size that they are happy to control.
We were just about to sign contracts for a garden flat in Beaminster. We have hit a snag. Our mortgage offer with Bank of Ireland runs out on 11/2/2019 but the vendors are suggesting a completion date of 13/2/2019. Can one extend the loan expiry date?
The person best placed to deal with your question is your solicitors who is in a position to assess whether they corresponding with the lender, seller’s conveyancers, estate agents or indeed all three taking into account the circumstances your conveyancing as of today.
I'm in the process of viewing flats in Beaminster and I am about to put in an offer. Should I already have a property lawyer in place at this stage? I am planning to take a home loan with Principality.
You should start requesting conveyancing quotes from solicitors ASAP. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their details on to the selling agent. Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Principality, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Principality conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.
The mortgage over my property is with Principality for my property in Beaminster. Conveyancing was finalised a year ago. Should I wish to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Principality?
Your original mortgage agreement with Principality will provide that you need their approval in advance of renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Principality’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Principality will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Principality directly. You need not do this via a Principality conveyancing panel firm.
I have instructed a Beaminster lawyer having made sure that they are on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Co-operative will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Co-operative will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your conveyancer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Beaminster postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Co-operative, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Beaminster.
