My lawyer has informed me that lack of right of way insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Colyton conveyancing?

I am the single recipient of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Colyton. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in May. I plan to dispose of the property. I understand that there is a CML six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship could be treated the same way as if I'd bought the property in May. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be impacted by that. How practical a view banks take of it, depend on the bank as this provision is principally there to identify subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

When it comes to mortgage companies such as Lloyds, do Colyton solicitors have to pay a yearly amount to be on the conveyancing panel?

Do you have any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Colyton with the intention of saving time on the sale process?

  • A significant proportion of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Colyton can be avoided if you appoint lawyers as soon as your agents start advertising the property and request that they start to put together the leasehold information which will be required by the buyers’ representatives.
  • If you have had conflict with your landlord or managing agents it is very important that these are resolved before the property is marketed. The buyers and their solicitors will be warry about purchasing a flat where a dispute is ongoing. You will have to accept that you will have to discharge any arrears of service charge or resolve the dispute prior to completion of the sale. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled ahead of the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You are still duty bound to disclose particulars of the dispute to the buyers, but it is better to reveal the dispute as over rather than unsettled. Some Colyton leases require Licence to Assign from the landlord. If this is the case, you should place the estate agents on notice to make sure that the purchasers obtain bank and professional references. The bank reference should make it clear that the buyer is able to meet the yearly service charge and the actual amount of the service charge should be quoted in the bank’s letter. You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the service charge figures so that they can pass this information on to the buyers or their lawyers. If you have the benefit of shareholding in the freehold, you should ensure that you have the original share certificate. Organising a replacement share certificate is often a lengthy process and frustrates many a Colyton conveyancing deal. Where a reissued share certificate is required, you should approach the company director and secretary or managing agents (if relevant) for this at the earliest opportunity.
