Me and my partner are about to exchange buying a house in Blakelaw but as a result of damage from some water damage at the property I have managed to agree compensation from the owner of £3k in the form of a adjustment in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of a side agreement yet UBS are not allowing this. Why were they informed?
The property lawyer being on the UBS conveyancing panel is obliged to disclose to UBS of any variations to the purchase price. If you were to refuse your property lawyer to notify the price change to UBS then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, UBS and you would have to appoint a new solicitor for your conveyancing in Blakelaw.
We are aiming to move home in March. Should my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Blakelaw. Conveyancing firm was chosen prior to coming across this website.
On the afternoon of completion you can pick up the keys from your selling agent however this can only be done when the previous owners conveyancers advise the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be given over. You will need to tell the removal company that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a specific removal organisation but can help you find a conveyancing in Blakelaw or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Blakelaw.
I have been told by my conveyancer that flying freehold insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Blakelaw conveyancing?
The right level of flying freehold indemnity insurance depends on your lender. It would differ for example between Yorkshire Building Society and Bank of Scotland. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.
Is it the case that all Blakelaw solicitors on the RBS conveyancing panel are governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the RBS conveyancing panel they would need to be overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Some lenders do list licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such practice would be overseen by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
My wife and I own a semi-detached Edwardian property in Blakelaw. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Aldermore. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same property. Is it worth asking Aldermore to clarify?
You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Blakelaw and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also check the situation with your conveyancing solicitor who conducted the conveyancing.
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one close by in Blakelaw I like with open areas and railway links nearby, however it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Blakelaw for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
Your search tool is useful but there are many lawyers listed near Blakelaw being on the lender conveyancing panel. Can you recommend a specific firm on the conveyancing panel for our lender?
We are not in the business of recommending one firm above another as the right Blakelaw conveyancing solicitor for you depends on where your priorities lie. For example you may require a local firm with Blakelaw knowledge or you might be looking for the low cost conveyancing. We recommend that you speak to 3 or 4 lawyers listed before you make your choice..
