Planning on purchasing a maisonette in Frogmore. 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 Coventry BS 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 Frogmore conveyancing practitioner is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel.
Yorkshire BS have agreed my mortgage in principle, my bid on a flat in Frogmore has been accepted, what happens next?
Your estate agent will need to be advised as to your property lawyer's details (be sure the conveyancers are on the lender’s approved list). Call up Yorkshire BS or your broker and complete any appropriate forms. Yorkshire BS will sellect a valuer who will get in contact with the selling agent or seller to book an appointment. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes approximately ten days for the mortgage offer to be issued. Yorkshire BS will send the offer to you and your solicitors. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Frogmore.
My offer on a detached house in Frogmore has been accepted, the owners do nevertheless have an associated purchase. The owners have placed an offer on a flat, however it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other flats in the pipeline. I have instructed a high street conveyancing solicitor in Frogmore. What should be my next step? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with Lloyds?
It is understandable to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, Frogmore conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you must check that your solicitor is on the Lloyds approved list. As to the subsequent steps this very much dictated by the specifics of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market some purchasers would apply for the mortgage with Lloyds and pay for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their solicitor to press on with the conveyancing in Frogmore.
How does conveyancing in Frogmore differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Frogmore come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because new home sellers in Frogmore 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Frogmore or who has acted in the same development.
Due to the input of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Frogmore in advance of appointing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. The surveyor advised that some banks will refuse to grant a mortgage on a flying freehold premises.
It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different instructions from Halifax. If you contact us we can check via the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Frogmore. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Frogmore to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.
