Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Fowey

All was ready to complete my purchase in Fowey next Tuesday. My lawyer now wants me to supply her with evidence of content and building insurance for the property as as she informs me that she is duty bound to validate that it is in order for the lender. What risks does the mortgage company expect the insurance to cover?

Any lawyer on acting for lenders would need to check that the following risks are covered fire; lightning; aircraft; explosion; earthquake; storm; flood; escape of water or oil; riot; malicious damage; theft or attempted theft; falling trees and branches and aerials; subsidence; heave;landslip;collision;accidental damage to underground services;professional fees, demolition and site clearance costs; and public liability to anyone else. There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook instructions. These requirements are not specific to conveyancing in Fowey.

At what point does exchange of contracts occur in sale conveyancing in Fowey and am I required to attend the solicitors office?

If you are in close proximity to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Fowey you are welcome to attend to sign documents. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we work with supply countrywide coverage for conveyancing and provide as equally detailed and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email. The signing of the contract is not the important part. A signed contract is necessary for the solicitor to address the formalities 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 a lengthy "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Fowey)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

I'm the sole recipient of my late father’s will and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Fowey. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in March. I plan to dispose of the house. I understand that there is a CML six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership may be considered the same way as if I'd bought the house in March. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be impacted by that. How practical a view banks take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this requirement is chiefly there to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of properties.

I am expecting a DIP from Lloyds 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 Lloyds recommend any Fowey solicitors on the Lloyds conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Fowey solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Lloyds through the process.

I'm spending time looking at apartments in Fowey and I am about to put in an offer. Is it too early to have a solicitor in place? I intend to finance via a home loan with HSBC.

You should start requesting conveyancing quotes from solicitors ASAP. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their details on to the EA. As you are taking out a mortgage with HSBC, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the HSBC conveyancing panel.

The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build apartment in Fowey. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.

Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Fowey

    Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Please supply a car parking plan. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry.

My husband and I are novice buyers - had an offer accepted, but the agent informed us that the owners will only proceed if we instruct the agent's recommended lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Fowey

We suspect that the seller is unaware of this ultimatum. If they desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a genuine purchaser is counter productive. Contact the sellers directly and make sure they understand (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are ready to go, with finances in place © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you will continue to appoint your preferred Fowey conveyancing firm - rather thanthose that will earn the negotiator at the agency a kickback or hit his conveyancing thresholds set by corporate headquarters.
