I have given 2 months notice to my current landlord and must leave my rented flat in Burwash by 4/4/2024. Conveyancing for my house purchase is underway. Is it possible to complete in 4 weeks as don't want to have to find short term accommodation?
Generally one should not give notice for your tenancy unless exchange of contracts has taken place. Assuming that you have not already done so, update to your lawyer and ask them to they cajole the sellers solicitors, try to get a realistic time scale from them that all parties will work towards
Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unseasoned as a 1st time buyer of a ground floor flat in Burwash. Do I receive the keys to the property on the completion date from my conveyancer? If this is the case, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Burwash?
On the day of completion you do not need to go to the conveyancers office in Burwash. Your solicitors will transfer the completion advance to the seller's conveyancers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be invited to receive the keys from the selling Agents and move into your new home. Usually this happens between 1 and 3pm.
I am planning to move property in May. Should my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you recommend a removal company in Burwash. Conveyancing solicitor was found before I stumbled across your page.
On the day of completion you can collect the keys from your property agent but this should only take place after the vendors solicitors confirm to the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be passed over. After that you should advise the removal men that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a specific removal company but can help you choose a residential property solicitor in Burwash or a legal practice with expertise in conveyancing in Burwash.
Santander have agreed my home loan in principle, my offer on a apartment in Burwash has been accepted, now what?
The property agent will want to know who your solicitors are (ensure that the solicitors are on the lender’s panel). Telephone Santander or your broker and complete any appropriate forms. Santander will instruct a valuer who will get in contact with the selling agent or owners to book a time for the valuation to occur. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes approximately a fortnight to receive the mortgage offer. Santander will send the offer to you and your conveyancing practitioners. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Burwash.
It has been 2 months following my purchase conveyancing in Burwash concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I have been pointed in your direction by a few selling agents in Burwash to choose a solicitor using your seach tool. What’s the financial inducement for Estate Agents to market your services rather than alternative conveyancing organisations?
We refuse to give any referral fee for sending work to this site. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as a client could think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
Should one as executor remove a departed person's name from the title register for a property in Burwash?
If a Burwash property is co-owned and one of the owners passes away, their name will not automatically be removed from the Land Registry title. It is not necessary to remove their name as when it comes to a disposal your conveyancer would just be asked to supply proof why the joint proprietor is missing from the contract, ordinarily this takes the form of the probate documents.
With the aim of making things more straight forward for the sale of the property you may apply to have the deceased party removed from the title by submitting an application to HM Land Registry with proof of the death. There is no land registry fee payable.
