When does exchange of contracts happen for purchase conveyancing in Earley and am I required to attend the solicitors office?
Where you are round the corner to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Earley you are invited in to sign contracts. That being said, the firms we recommend supply countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give as equally detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email. The signing of the property agreement is not the critical part. A signed contract simply enables the solicitor to officially exchange when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Earley)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
When it comes to mortgage companies such as Principality, do Earley solicitors have to pay an annual charge to be on the list of approved solicitors?
We are not aware of any lender fees to register on their list of approved firms, although some do levy an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.
I have a mortgage with Barclays for my property in Earley. Conveyancing has been completed 12 months ago. In the event that I decide to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Barclays?
Barclays must be informed of your intention before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Barclays’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Barclays will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Barclays directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Barclays conveyancing panel lawyer.
Planning on purchasing a apartment in Earley. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Earley property lawyer is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel.
I have justbecome aware that Arc property Solicitors have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Earley for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 10 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is registered correctly in the name of the former proprietor?
The quickest way to check if the property 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 Earley conveyancing specialists.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Earley is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Earley are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Earley you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Earley may determine 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.
