Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Kingstanding

I am not well enough to travel far from Kingstanding. Is there a reason why all Kingstanding property lawyers aren't automatically on all lender panels?

As unjust as it may seem for mortgage companies to limit who can represent them, from the public’s or conveyancer’s viewpoint, the flip side is that lenders are increasingly anxious and consider it crucial to protect them from illegal activities. As a consequence of this concern mortgage companies have reduced their conveyancing panel to a size that they are happy to control.

Can I be sure that the Kingstanding conveyancing solicitor on the Aldermore panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in Kingstanding seeking recommendations is a good starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always recommend that you speak with the solicitor handling your conveyancing.

We have agreed to purchase a house in Kingstanding. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Lloyds have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

As your lender is Lloyds your lawyer must check the conveyancing instructions contained in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Lloyds. The CML Handbook includes minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and solicitors are required to report to Lloyds where a lease does not meet these requirements. The requirements relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not restricted to Kingstanding.

We expect to receive a AIP from Barclays this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we only have online calculators to go by (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Barclays recommend any Kingstanding solicitors on the Barclays conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?

You will need to appoint Kingstanding solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Barclays conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Barclays through the process.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified during conveyancing in Kingstanding?

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Kingstanding. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Kingstanding. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.

    Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared.

Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified.

Due to the input of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Kingstanding in advance of appointing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. The surveyor has said that some banks tend refuse to issue a mortgage on this type of home.

It varies from the lender to lender. Bank of Scotland has different instructions from Birmingham Midshires. Should you wish to call 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 Kingstanding. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
