We are only a couple days away from an exchange on a property in Fairwater and my parents have transferred the ten percent deposit to my property lawyer. I am now advised that as the deposit has not arrived from me my property lawyer needs to disclose this to my bank. I am advised that, in also acting for the lender he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is not just from me. I advised the lender concerning my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really necessary for him to raise this?
Your conveyancer is obliged to clarify with the bank to make sure that they are aware that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only reveal this to your mortgage company if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
Why do I have to pay up front for my conveyancing in Fairwater?
Where you are retaining lawyers for conveyancing in Fairwater your lawyer will ask you put them with funds to cover the the cost of the conveyancing searches. Normally this is asked for to cover the fees of the Local Authority Search. If any down payment is as part of the purchase price then this should be required immediately prior to contracts are exchanged. The closing balance that is needed will be payable a couple of days ahead of the day of completion.
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Fairwater I like with amenity areas and station nearby, however it only has 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Fairwater for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
