I just acquired a flat at auction in Ilfracombe. Conveyancing is needed. What is next?

Now that you are legally bound yourself to purchase you must choose a conveyancing practitioner as a matter of priority as you are facing a tight deadline in which to complete the deal. Every auction property will have a bespoke legal set of papers. This will likely include most,if not all of the documents that your conveyancer will need. In the case of leasehold property the legal pack may include a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing paperwork pertinent to leasehold premises. You need to hand this to the solicitor working for you at the earliest opportunity. Do make sure that that you have the requisite funding organised to complete the transaction on the set completion date.

We have a mortgage agreed in principle with UBS. Ilfracombe conveyancing lawyers are appointed. How long does it take for UBS to forward the offer to the solicitor?

There is no definitive answer here. Have UBS completed the survey? Have you informed UBS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the UBS conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

I am buying a property in Ilfracombe. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Nottingham have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

As you are obtaining a mortgage with Nottingham your lawyer must follow the formal instructions set out in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Nottingham. The CML Handbook stipulates minimum provisions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to Nottingham where a lease does not meet these provisions. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not limited to Ilfracombe.

How does conveyancing in Ilfracombe differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Ilfracombe approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because house builders in Ilfracombe usually 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 used to new build conveyancing in Ilfracombe or who has acted in the same development.

We have AIP from The Royal Bank of Scotland who suggested we could borrow up to £350k. When do we need to appoint a practitioner for conveyancing? Ilfracombe is where we plan to move to.

You can instruct a solicitor now requesting that they create a file for you. This will facilitate: 1) the selling agent to issue a Sales Memo to the relevant parties 2) the seller’s conveyancer to send out the draft agreement. However, do not instruct your conveyancer to start searches until you have your valuation report via The Royal Bank of Scotland and you are content to move forward.
