I had intended to instruct a property lawyer in Carlton for our house move. Our broker informed us that our mortgage company Santander won't deal with them. Surely this is unfair competition?
A decade ago most banks had a different appetite for risk. Almost all Carlton conveyancing firms would have been on most mortgage company panels. The Financial Services Authority in 2010 completed a thematic review into mortgage fraud which come to the conclusion: mortgage lenders should know the conveyancing solicitors dealt with. Consequently, mortgage companies are increasingly seeing more information from law firms relating to their operations and the individuals who work for them as well as set certain criteria such a completing on a minimum number of transactions. Many Carlton conveyancing firms that have been excluded from lender panels have a 100% healthy track record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Carlton is amongst the many areas where the lawyers showing on our search results are on the panel for Santander.
I completed on my home on 14 January and my personal details are still not registered. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Carlton advises it should be concluded inside ten days. Are properties in Carlton uniquely lengthy to register?
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Carlton registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry need to notify any interested persons or bodies. At present in the region of 80% of submission are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive delays. Historically registration takes place once the purchaser has moved in to the property therefore 'speed' is not typically an essential issue yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Carlton I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Carlton in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
Should you need a mortgage that many years may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
I have checked your search tool I can't find the lawyer I was hoping to instruct as being on the lender conveyancing panel. My lawyer has said that they are on the lender approved panel. How can I be sure given that they are not listed on your directory?
Not all firms are yet listed on our lender panel search tool which is still relatively new. Law firms are listing on a daily basis and it is probably the case that your lawyer is on the lender conveyancing lawyer and you should probably take them at their word. Please do feel free to suggest that they completing their listing on our site as it would only cost them £1 a month to list themselves as being on the bank solicitor panel.
