We have a mortgage agreed in principle with Kent Reliance. Cornwall conveyancing solicitors were instructed. How long does it take for Kent Reliance to send the offer to the solicitor?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Kent Reliance done the valuation? Have you advised Kent Reliance as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
I had an offer accepted on an apartment in Cornwall on 23/2/2018, valuation was booked 2 days later, all came back fine. Solicitor retained, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Aldermore and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Aldermore to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
Have completed on a a semi-detached house in Cornwall , how long will it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my ownership? My Cornwall conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to check the land registry aspects are concluded.
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Cornwall registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ subject to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any 3rd parties. As of today approximately 80% of such applications are fully dealt with within 12 days but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Historically registration takes place after the buyer is living at the premises therefore registration formalities is not typically primary concern but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers must speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Cornwall is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Cornwall are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Cornwall you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Cornwall may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
