I plan on buying an apartment in Broad Haven. My Conveyancer has never been on on the lender approved list. Am I still permitted to use my Broad Haven conveyancing solicitor even though they are not on the bank list of approved lawyers?
One must appoint a lawyer to deal with the formalities if you need a mortgage to buy your home. The conveyancer will conduct all the appropriate legal checks on the property, make sure that you will be properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the required mortgage paperwork is in order. One may select a Broad Haven lawyer of your choosing. Nevertheless, if the lawyer appointed is not on the mortgage company approved list further costs will be levied as separate legal representation will be need by the lender. Bank panel applications may be submitted, so provided your solicitor has not historically applied for membership they should do so.
I am hoping to complete my purchase in Broad Haven next Monday. I have now been asked to send a copy of my building insurance schedule by my solicitor as as she informs me that she is duty bound to validate that it is in order for the mortgage company. What risks does the mortgage company expect the insurance to cover?
Any lawyer on acting for banks would need to check that the following risks are covered fire; lightning; aircraft; explosion; earthquake; storm; flood; escape of water or oil; riot; malicious damage; theft or attempted theft; falling trees and branches and aerials; subsidence; heave;landslip;collision;accidental damage to underground services;professional fees, demolition and site clearance costs; and public liability to anyone else. There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s Part 2 conditions. These obligations are not specific to conveyancing in Broad Haven.
How does conveyancing in Broad Haven differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Broad Haven approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Broad Haven tend to buy the site, 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 Broad Haven or who has acted in the same development.
