The first thing to do is e-mail the solicitor and enquire whether they are on the lender panel. Otherwise please call HSBC Bank who may be able to help.
How does conveyancing in Market Rasen differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Market Rasen contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because new home sellers in Market Rasen usually acquire the site, 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 conveyancers 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 used to new build conveyancing in Market Rasen or who has acted in the same development.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one close by in Market Rasen I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Market Rasen in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?
If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
Should I be concerned by brokers that I am dealing with are encouraging me to use a national conveyancing firm as opposed to a local Market Rasen conveyancing practice?
As with lots of service providers, often input from family and friends can be most helpful. But there are many parties with a vested interest in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, financial adviser and mortgage companies might all put forward solicitors to choose. Sometimes these conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but sometimes there may be a financial incentive behind the endorsement. You are free to appoint your preferred conveyancer. Don't forget that some mortgage providers specify a panel list of solicitors you are obliged to use for the lender aspect of your transaction.
