Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Danbury

Can I be sure that the Danbury conveyancing solicitor on the Yorkshire BS panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in Danbury seeking recommendations is a sensible start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always recommend that you speak with the solicitor conducting your conveyancing.

I am buying a property in Danbury. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender UBS be concerned?

Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with UBS your lawyer must check the formal requirements set out in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for UBS. The CML Handbook sets out minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and property lawyers are required to report to UBS where a lease does not meet these specifications. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not restricted to Danbury.

Having digested plenty of mortgage guides, I note that they all recommend that you should get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Danbury solicitor - who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?

Clydesdale will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Clydesdale will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your conveyancer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Danbury postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Clydesdale, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Danbury.

Can you provide any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Danbury from the point of view of speeding up the sale process?

  • Much of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Danbury can be reduced if you get in touch lawyers as soon as you market your property and ask them to put together the leasehold documentation which will be required by the buyers’ conveyancers.
  • If you have carried out any alterations to the residence would they have required Landlord’s approval? In particular have you laid down wooden flooring? Most leases in Danbury state that internal structural alterations or addition of wooden flooring require a licence issued by the Landlord approving such works. If you dont have the consents in place you should not contact the landlord without checking with your solicitor first. If there is a history of conflict with your landlord or managing agents it is very important that these are settled before the property is put on the market. The purchasers and their solicitors will be concerned about purchasing a property where there is a current dispute. You may have to bite the bullet and 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 will still have to reveal particulars of the dispute to the buyers, but it is better to reveal the dispute as over as opposed to unresolved. If you are supposed to have a share in the freehold, you should make sure that you hold the original share document. Organising a replacement share certificate can be a time consuming formality and slows down many a Danbury home move. If a new share is needed, you should approach the company director and secretary or managing agents (where applicable) for this as soon as possible.
