It is a dozen years since I acquired my house in Flint Mountain. Conveyancing solicitors have just been retained on the sale but I am unable to locate the title deeds. Is this a problem?
Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a chance that the deeds will be with your mortgage company or they may stored with the conveyancers who handled the purchase. Secondly in all probability the land will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers obtaining up to date copy of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Flint Mountain relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is not registered it is more tricky but is resolvable.
I am selling my flat in Flint Mountain. Does the property lawyer need to be on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel in order to deal with repayment of my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their conditions fairly frequently at the moment.
What will a local search inform me about the house my wife and I purchasing in Flint Mountain?
Flint Mountain conveyancing often commences with the submitting local authority searches directly from your local Authority or through a personal search company such as Searchflow The local search is essential in every Flint Mountain conveyancing purchase; that is if you don’t want any nasty once you have moved into your new home. The search will reveal data on, amongst other things, details on planning applications relevant to the property (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of 13 subject sections.
How does conveyancing in Flint Mountain differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Flint Mountain come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Flint Mountain tend to buy 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 conveyancers 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Flint Mountain or who has acted in the same development.
