I am the sole beneficiary of my late grandmother’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Dosthill. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in March. I want to move. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', meaning my property ownership may be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the property in March. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?
The CML handbook requires conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be affected by that. many mortgage companies would take a pragmatic view as this provision chiefly exists to pick up on subsales or the quick reselling of properties.
We were going to get a DIP from Aldermore this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Aldermore recommend any Dosthill solicitors on the Aldermore conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Dosthill solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Aldermore conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Aldermore through the process.
After shopping around on the internet I have found a Dosthill solicitor having checked that they are on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Coventry BS will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Coventry BS 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. You may wish to consider appointing your own Dosthill surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
I bought my apartment on 3 January and my personal details are still not registered. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Dosthill said it would be dealt with in a couple of weeks. Are titles in Dosthill particularly slow to register?
As far as conveyancing in Dosthill registration is no faster or slower than the rest of the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry have to notify any other persons or bodies. As of today roughly three quarters of submission are fully addressed within two weeks but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Registration occurs after the buyer has moved in to the property so post completion formalities is not usually an essential issue but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor can speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
We're FTB’s - had an offer accepted, but the estate agent advised that the vendor will only proceed if we appoint their preferred lawyers as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Dosthill
It is improbable the owners are driving this. If they want ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated purchaser is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Contact the vendors directly and make sure they understand (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you intend to use your preferred Dosthill conveyancing firm - as opposed tothose that will give the negotiator at the agency a commission or hit his conveyancing figures set by head office.
My wife and I purchased a leasehold flat in Dosthill. Conveyancing and Aldermore mortgage are in place. I have received a letter from someone claiming to own the freehold. It included a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1992. The conveyancing practitioner in Dosthill who acted for me is not around. What should I do?
The first thing you should do is contact the Land Registry to be sure that this person is indeed the new freeholder. There is no need to instruct a Dosthill conveyancing solicitor to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for £3. You should note that in any event, even if this is the legitimate landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.
