Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Lostwithiel

Me and my fiance are intending to buy a 2 bedroom apartment in Lostwithiel with a mortgage. We like our Lostwithiel conveyancer, however the lender says she’s not on their "panel". It appears that we have little option but to appoint one of the bank panel solicitors or retain our Lostwithiel conveyancer and pay for one of their panel lawyers to represent them. We regard this is unjust; can we not demand that the bank use our Lostwithiel lawyer ?

No, not really. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your Lostwithiel conveyancing lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Lostwithiel off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Nationwide. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have 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 Nationwide, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Nationwide conveyancing panel.

I can not fathom if my lender requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Lostwithiel building society branch on a couple of occasions and was reassured it wasn't an issue and they would lend. My Lostwithiel conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend based on their published requirements. I have no idea who is right.

As long as the lawyer is on the lender panel, they must adhere to the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook provisions for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

I was told three 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 Lostwithiel is approved on their conveyancing panel? RBS have asked my solicitor to see a copy of their PI Insurance.

Mortgage companies tend not to 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.

I have todaybeen informed that Wolstenholmes have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Lostwithiel for a purchase of a freehold house 9 months ago. How can I establish that my home is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?

The easiest way to check if the property is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Lostwithiel conveyancing specialists.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Lostwithiel I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Lostwithiel in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?

Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.
