I am acquiring a property without a mortgage in Frinton On Sea. I have lived for the previous dozen years in Frinton On Sea. Conveyancing searches are expensive. Given that I know the area and road very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?
If you not getting a home loan, then all but one or two of the Frinton On Sea conveyancing searches are optional. Your solicitor will 'advise', no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches done, but he has a professional duty to take that path of advice. Do bear in mind; if you are going to dispose of the house in the future, it could be of importance to your future buyer what the searches reveal. Sometimes properties with no practical issues can still show up negative search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Frinton On Sea will be able to give you some constructive advice in this regard.
I am being told by my conveyancer that chancel insurance is necessary on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Frinton On Sea conveyancing?
The appropriate level of chancel indemnity insurance should be dictated by who who your lender is. It would differ for example between Barclays and The Mortgage Works. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.
We have a mortgage agreed in principle with Santander. Frinton On Sea conveyancing practitioners have been chosen. How long does it take for Santander to send the offer to the property lawyer?
There is no definitive answer here. Have Santander conducted the valuation? Have you advised Santander as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Santander conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.
I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Frinton On Sea off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Bank of Ireland. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Bank of Ireland, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel.
I am intent on selling our property in Frinton On Sea and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. A local conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the buyers used a national conveyancing practice as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Frinton On Sea. Having lived in Frinton On Sea for six years we know that this is a non issue. Is it a good idea to get in touch with our local Authority to seek confirmation that the buyers are looking for.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing lawyer currently acting for you. What do they say? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same illness)
It has been three months since my purchase conveyancing in Frinton On Sea concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
