Have purchased a a terraced house in Halesworth , how long should it take for the Land Registry to record my ownership? My Halesworth conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to check the registration is addressed.
As far as conveyancing in Halesworth registration is no faster or slower than the rest of the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry need to notify any interested persons or bodies. As of today roughly three quarters of submission are completed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to longer hold-ups. Historically registration occurs once the buyer is living at the property so an expedited registration is not usually an essential issue but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers should speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
I am buying my first flat in Halesworth with a loan from Clydesdale. The developers refused to reduce the amount so I negotiated 6k of extras instead. The sale representative suggested that I not inform my solicitor about the extras as it could impact my mortgage with Clydesdale. Should I keep quiet?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Halesworth is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Halesworth are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Halesworth you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Halesworth may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
In what way does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my business offices in Halesworth and how can your lawyers assist?
The particular law that you refer to provides security of tenure to commercial tenants, giving them the dueness to apply to court for a new tenancy and continue in occupation at the end of the lease term. There are certain specified grounds that a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are complex. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing.
