Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Dalton in Furness

My husband and I are refinancing our apartment in Dalton in Furness with Leeds Building Society. We have a son 19 who lives at home. Our solicitor has asked us to disclose any adults other than ourselves who lives in the flat. The solicitor has now sent a form for our son to sign, waiving any legal rights in the event that the flat is forfeited by the lender. I have two concerns (1) Is this document specific to the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel as he never had to sign this form when we remortgaged 5 years ago (2) In signing this form is our son in any way compromising his right to inherit the property?

First, rest assured that your Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel solicitor is doing the right thing as it is established procedure for any occupier who is aged 17 or over to sign the necessary Consent Form, which is purely to state that any rights he has in the property are postponed and secondary to Leeds Building Society. This is solely used to protect Leeds Building Society if the property were re-possessed so that in such circumstances, your son would be legally obliged to leave. It does not impact your son’s right to inherit the apartment. Please note that if your son were to inherit and the mortgage in favour of Leeds Building Society had not been discharged, he would be liable to take over the loan or pay it off, but other than that, there is nothing stopping him from keeping the property in accordance with your will or the rules of intestacy.

We are selling our house in Dalton in Furness and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. Any local lawyer would know that there is no such problem. For the life of me I don't know why the purchasers used a nationwide conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Dalton in Furness. Having lived in Dalton in Furness for six years we know of no issue. Do we contact our local Authority to obtain clarification that there is no issue.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing lawyer already. Are they able to advise? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same illness)

I have todaydiscovered that Stirling Law have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Dalton in Furness for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 18 months ago. How can I establish that the property is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?

The easiest method to check if the premises is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Dalton in Furness conveyancing specialists.

How does conveyancing in Dalton in Furness differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Dalton in Furness come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Dalton in Furness typically 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 property lawyers 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 Dalton in Furness or who has acted in the same development.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one near me in Dalton in Furness I like with open areas and transport links nearby, however it's only got 49 years on the lease. There is not much else in Dalton in Furness for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If you require a home loan that many years may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
