Forgive me if this question is silly but I am new to the process as FTB of a garden flat in Bodmin. Do I receive the keys to the house on completion from my lawyer? If so, I will find a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Bodmin?
On the day of completion you do not need to go to the conveyancers office in Bodmin. Your solicitors will arrange to send the purchase money to the seller's lawyers, and once they have received this, you will be able to receive the keys from the selling Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.
We have agreed to purchase a house in Bodmin. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Clydesdale have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
Given that your lender is Clydesdale your lawyer must comply with the formal instructions contained in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Clydesdale. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook contains minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to Clydesdale where a lease does not comply with these requirements. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not isolated to Bodmin.
I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in March 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Yorkshire BS are being difficult. The Bodmin solicitor who is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Yorkshire BS are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Yorkshire BS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Yorkshire BS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Yorkshire BS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
How does conveyancing in Bodmin differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Bodmin contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Bodmin typically 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 property lawyers 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 Bodmin or who has acted in the same development.

There are only Seventy years remaining on my flat in Bodmin. I now wish to get lease extension but my freeholder is can not be found. What should I do?
On the basis that you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be extended by the magistrate. However, you will be required to prove that you or your lawyers have done all that could be expected to track down the landlord. For most situations a specialist should be helpful to conduct investigations and to produce a report which can be accepted by the court as proof that the freeholder can not be located. It is wise to seek advice from a conveyancer both on proving the landlord’s disappearance and the vesting order request to the County Court covering Bodmin.

The best form of lease structure is if the freehold reversion is in the ownership of the leaseholders. In this arrangement the leaseholders benefit from control and even though a managing agent is often retained if the building is bigger than a house conversion, the managing agent retained by the leaseholders.
