My bid for a property was accepted at auction in Carmel. Conveyancing is necessary. What are my next steps?

Having exchanged you now have to instruct a conveyancing solicitor soon as you are faced with a tight deadline in which to complete the conveyancing. Every auction property will have a bespoke auction pack. This should include most,if not all of the paperwork that your solicitor will need. Where you are dealing with leasehold property the legal papers may include a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing paperwork pertinent to a leasehold property. You should pass this on to your appointed conveyancing solicitor at the earliest opportunity. Do make sure that you have funds in place to complete the transaction on the set completion date.

I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in December 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Clydesdale are being a right pain. The Carmel solicitor who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Clydesdale are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Clydesdale have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Clydesdale have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Clydesdale may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

Planning on purchasing a house in Carmel. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Carmel lawyer is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel.

Should our lawyer be raising enquiries concerning flooding during the conveyancing in Carmel.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for lawyers dealing with homes in Carmel. There are those who purchase a property in Carmel, fully expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or sell the property. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.

Lawyers are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a number of searches that can be initiated by the buyer or by their solicitors which can figure out the risks in Carmel. The standard information given to a purchaser’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a standard question of the seller to determine whether the property has suffered from flooding. In the event that flooding has previously occurred and is not disclosed by the owner, then a buyer could bring a compensation claim resulting from an inaccurate reply. A purchaser’s lawyers should also commission an enviro search. This will higlight if there is any known flood risk. If so, additional inquiries should be carried out.

How does conveyancing in Carmel differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Carmel approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because new home sellers in Carmel tend to purchase 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Carmel or who has acted in the same development.
