I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Yorkshire BS. I assume I don't need a Hebden Bridge conveyancing practitioner on the Yorkshire BS panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your Yorkshire BS mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Yorkshire BS mortgage from the register. Yorkshire BS, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Yorkshire BS has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Yorkshire BS has instructed the Land Registry to do so
I've read lots of mortgage guides, I note that they all recommend that you should get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Hebden Bridge solicitor - who is on the Principality conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?
Principality will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Principality will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Hebden Bridge surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
Skipton have agreed my mortgage in principle, my offer on a apartment in Hebden Bridge has been agreed to, what happens next?
The estate agent will want to be advised as to your solicitor's details (be sure the conveyancers are on the bank’s approved list). Call up Skipton or the financial adviser and finalise any appropriate forms. Skipton will sellect a valuer who will get in contact with the estate agent or seller to arrange an appointment. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes about ten days for the mortgage offer to be issued. Skipton will issue the offer to you and your property lawyers. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Hebden Bridge.
How does conveyancing in Hebden Bridge differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Hebden Bridge approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because new home sellers in Hebden Bridge tend to buy the land, 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 property lawyers 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 Hebden Bridge or who has acted in the same development.
I opted to have a survey done on a house in Hebden Bridge ahead of appointing solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. My surveyor has said that some lenders will not grant a mortgage on this type of premises.
It varies from the lender to lender. Bank of Scotland has different instructions from Birmingham Midshires. Should you wish to telephone us we can investigate further with the appropriate lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Hebden Bridge.
