My mortgage broker requires my Little Mill lawyer’ panel reference for the Nat West conveyancing panel. What is the best way to find this out. I have called my local Little Mill office but they don't know it.
Have you tried speaking to your Little Mill conveyancer about this?. Most Little Mill conveyancing practices will keep a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each lender.
I own a freehold house in Little Mill but nevertheless invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?
It’s unusual for properties in Little Mill and has limited impact for conveyancing in Little Mill but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.
Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges have existed for many centuries, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the creation of new rentcharges post 1977.
Previous rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 will be dispensed with completely.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one close by in Little Mill I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, however it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Little Mill for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring 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 not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
As co-executor for the estate of my aunt I am disposing of a residence in Neath but live in Little Mill. My lawyer (approximately 235 kilometers from merequires that I execute a stat dec prior to the transaction finalising. Can you recommend a conveyancing practitioner in Little Mill to attest this legal document for me?
Technically speaking you are not likely to need to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily any notary public or solicitor will do regardless of whether they are Little Mill based
My step-father purchased his flat in Little Mill eight years ago. He has got married, widowed and in recent months got married again. He will be marketing the apartment in a couple of months. I suspect that he will simply be requested to supply copies of his marriage certificates to the lawyer but he is concerned it will delay the sale of the property. Should he appoint a lawyer to update the Land Registry documents for the property?
You are not required to bring up to date the title for the property as long as you have the proof needed to show how the name change has come about.
The buyer’s conveyancing practitioner will review the land registry information and request evidence to prove the change of name for instance marriage documentation.
