Are all Linslade Conveyancing Quality Solicitors on the Principality conveyancing panel?
A selection of banks and building societies now make use of the accreditation scheme as the starting point for Panel membership such as HSBC and Santander. CQS accreditation however gives no guarantee to lender panel acceptance. Nevertheless,the Council of Mortgage Lenders have indicated that it is likely to become a pre-requisite for firms wishing to join their approved list of firms.
When it comes to lenders such as Nationwide, do Linslade lawyers incur an annual charge to be on the conveyancing panel?
We are unaware of any bank fees to be on their list of approved firms, although some do levy an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.
I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Linslade off the council. I have a mortgage agreed with Clydesdale. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Clydesdale, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel.
How does conveyancing in Linslade differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Linslade come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because builders in Linslade usually 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 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Linslade or who has acted in the same development.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Linslade I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Linslade for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.
