I have paid off my mortgage with Nottingham. I assume I don't need a Ince in Makerfield property lawyer on the Nottingham panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your Nottingham 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 Nottingham mortgage from the register. Nottingham, 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 Nottingham has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Nottingham has instructed the Land Registry to do so
I was told four weeks ago that my mortgage has been agreed to by RBS. Is it usual for RBS to only issue the offer once my solicitor in Ince in Makerfield is approved on their conveyancing panel? RBS have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.
A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for RBS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the RBS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
Will our lawyer be raising enquiries regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Ince in Makerfield.
Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers conducting conveyancing in Ince in Makerfield. Some people will purchase a property in Ince in Makerfield, fully expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, leaving to one side the physical destruction, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, suitable building insurance, or dispose of the property. There are steps that can be taken as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.
Solicitors are not qualified to impart advice on flood risk, however there are a various searches that can be carried out by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which can give them a better appreciation of the risks in Ince in Makerfield.

In the event that the residence has been flooded in past which is not notified by the owner, then a buyer may commence a claim for damages stemming from an inaccurate response. A buyer’s lawyers will also conduct an enviro report. This should reveal if there is any known flood risk. If so, further investigations will need to be initiated.
How does conveyancing in Ince in Makerfield differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Ince in Makerfield approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because developers in Ince in Makerfield typically acquire 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 conveyancers 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 Ince in Makerfield or who has acted in the same development.
I am looking for a flat up to £195,000 and found one near me in Ince in Makerfield I like with a park and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Ince in Makerfield suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan that many years will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
