I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Aldermore. I assume I don't need a Datchet and Langley conveyancer on the Aldermore panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your Aldermore mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Aldermore mortgage from the register. Aldermore, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Aldermore has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Aldermore has instructed the Land Registry to do so
Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Datchet and Langley. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?
Most lenders have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Team at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR with full details of your complaint.
My offer was accepted on an apartment in Datchet and Langley on 22/5/2019, valuation was booked 2 days after, all came back fine. Conveyancer appointed, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Leeds Building Society and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. Are Leeds Building Society entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?
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 Leeds Building Society to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
Have completed on a a detached house in Datchet and Langley , how long should it take for the Land Registry to register my proprietorship? My Datchet and Langley conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to check that my ownership is registered.
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Datchet and Langley registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust subject to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry communicate with any interested persons or bodies. Currently approximately three quarters of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to protracted delays. Historically registration is effected once the new owner is living at the premises thus an expedited registration is not usually an essential issue but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
How does conveyancing in Datchet and Langley differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Datchet and Langley approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because builders in Datchet and Langley typically acquire the real estate, 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 Datchet and Langley or who has acted in the same development.
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one close by in Datchet and Langley I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Datchet and Langley suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.
