Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Camelford

My grandmother passed away six months ago and as sole heir and executor I was left the house in Camelford. The house had a relatively small loan left on it of around £5k. I want to transfer the title deeds into my name whilst I re-mortgage to TSB, pay off the mortgage. Is this allowed?

Where you intend to refinance then TSB will require that you use a conveyancer on the TSB conveyancing panel. Here is link to the Land Registry online guidance around what to do when a property owner dies. This will help you to understand the registration process behind changing the details re the registered title. in your case it would appear that you are effectively purchasing the property from the estate. Your TSB conveyancing panel solicitor pays the new mortgage money into the estate, the estate pays off the old mortgage, the charge is released and you become the owner and the TSB mortgage is registered as a charge at the Land Registry.

Local searches are not likely to be the root cause of delay in conveyancing in Camelford.

How does conveyancing in Camelford differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Camelford contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because builders in Camelford typically acquire 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 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 Camelford or who has acted in the same development.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Camelford I like with open areas and station nearby, however it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Camelford in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.

The conveyancing solicitors conducting our conveyancing in Camelford has sent papers to review that indicate that the land is unregistered with epitome documents. Is it not the case that all property in Camelford should be registered?

Over ninety percent of property in Camelford is registered. An 'epitome' is basically a dossier of photocopies of documents affecting an unregistered title. Plenty of Camelford conveyancing solicitors should be familiar with such matters but if any uncertainty exists the prevailing advice nowadays seems to be for the seller to register it first and then deal with the dispose of the property to the purchaser - this can though naturally cause a significant delay.
