The Llangefni conveyancing firm handling our Llangefni conveyancing has uncovered a difference when comparing the surveyor’s assumptions in the home valuation report and what is revealed within the conveyancing documents. My lawyer says that he needs to check that the lender is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my lawyer’s stance right?
Your lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for you.
Do banks and building societies provide you with an approved list of Llangefni conveyancing solicitors? How do you know who is on the Principality conveyancing panel?
Llangefni conveyancing firms themselves provide us confirmation that they are on the Principality conveyancing panel as opposed to being supplied with a list from Principality directly.
Should our solicitor be asking questions regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Llangefni.
Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers carrying out conveyancing in Llangefni. Some people will buy a property in Llangefni, completely aware that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical destruction, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, adequate building insurance, or sell the premises. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.
Conveyancers are not best placed to give advice on flood risk, but there are a various searches that may be carried out by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which will figure out the risks in Llangefni. The conventional set of completed inquiry forms sent to a buyer’s lawyer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a standard question of the seller to find out if the premises has historically flooded. If the residence has been flooded in past and is not notified by the seller, then a buyer could issue a legal claim for losses as a result of such an inaccurate response. A buyer’s solicitors should also conduct an environmental report. This should higlight whether there is any known flood risk. If so, further investigations should be initiated.
My wife and I own a terraced Victorian house in Llangefni. Conveyancing practitioner represented me and Birmingham Midshires. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the exact same property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?
You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Llangefni and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also check the situation with your conveyancing solicitor who conducted the work.
