Do the Building Society Association intend to launch a online directory to to identify solicitors on the Darlington Building Society conveyancing panel for example in Hertfordshire?
Lexsure has not been advised of any intention on the part of the BSA to develop such a search facility.
I know that there are debates on Chancel Insurance on online forums. Am I compelled to have this when acquiring a property in Hertfordshire? or Apparently there is historic law that means some homeowners living in a parish church boundary may be liable to pay for repairs to the chancel within the church. Is this applicable for conveyancing in Hertfordshire?
Unless a previous purchase of the property took place after 12 October 2013 you can assume that lawyers delivering conveyancing in Hertfordshire to remain recommending a chancel search and or insurance against a claim.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our property can not be found. The conveyancers who conducted the conveyancing in Hertfordshire 10 years ago are no longer around. What are my options?
In today’s world there are copies made of almost everything, and your lawyer will know exactly where to locate all the suitable documentation so you can buy or dispose of your house without any difficulty. Where copies can’t be located, your solicitor can put in place insurance or indemnities against future claims on the property.
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Hertfordshire I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Hertfordshire in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
In my capacity as executor for the estate of my aunt I am disposing of a property in Monmouth but reside in Hertfordshire. My solicitor (based 300 miles awayhas requested that I execute a statutory declaration before the transaction finalising. Can you recommend a conveyancing solicitor in Hertfordshire who can attest this legal document for me?
Technically speaking you are not likely to need to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily or notary public or qualified solicitor will do regardless of whether they are located in Hertfordshire
