I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Camborne. I have a mortgage agreed with Yorkshire BS. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Yorkshire BS, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel.
I have instructed a Camborne lawyer having checked that they are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Yorkshire BS will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Yorkshire BS will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Camborne surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
How does conveyancing in Camborne differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Camborne come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because developers in Camborne usually acquire the land, 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 used to new build conveyancing in Camborne or who has acted in the same development.

Our sealed bid on house in Camborne has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The current proprietors have offered on a flat, however it’s not been accepted yet, and has viewings of other apartments in the pipeline. I have chosen a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Camborne. What do I do now? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with HSBC?
It is understandable to have apprehensions where there is an associated chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Camborne conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you should check that your solicitor is on the HSBC conveyancing panel. As to the next steps this very much dictated by the circumstances of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market some buyers would apply for the mortgage with HSBC and pay for the survey and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their solicitor to move forward with searches.
