My partner and I are close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our home in Calcot and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. A local conveyancer would know this is not the case. For the life of me I don't know why the buyers instructed an online conveyancing outfit rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Calcot. Having lived in Calcot for 5 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we contact our local Authority to obtain clarification need.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing solicitor currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You must check with your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out health insurance to cover that same sickness)
It has been five months since my purchase conveyancing in Calcot completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £215,000. 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 premises 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.
How does conveyancing in Calcot differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Calcot approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because builders in Calcot tend to purchase 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Calcot or who has acted in the same development.
Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Calcot in advance of appointing lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. Our surveyor has said that some lenders may refuse to give a loan on this type of house.
It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different instructions from Nationwide. Should you wish to call us we can check with the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Calcot. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Calcot especially if they are familiar with such properties in Calcot.
