The housing market in Morganstown is heating up. What can I do to speed up matters?
First, If the seller is applying pressure for your conveyancing we would recommend that your solicitor is familiar with the location as they will have local connections and intelligence. It is possible that they may have handled previoushomes in the same street. Therefore consider using a Morganstown conveyancing firm. Second, double check that the conveyancing firm is on the member panel. It is said that nearly one in five of Morganstown conveyancing deals are held up or jeopardised after finding out that a buyer’s conveyancer was not on their mortgage lender’s member panel. In many cases this discovery resulted in the legal transfer of property being held up by an average of three weeks. It is believed that this issue impacts in the region of 100,000 home moves annually. Almost all Morganstown conveyancing practices can not represent certain lenders so do check at the outset.
This question may be naive but I am wet behind the ears as a first time purchaser of a two bedroom flat in Morganstown. Do I collect the keys to the house on the completion date from my conveyancer? If this is the case, I will use a local conveyancing solicitor in Morganstown?
On the day of completion you do not need to go to the conveyancers office in Morganstown. Your solicitors will electronically transfer the purchase money to the owner’s solicitors, and once they have received this, you will be able to pick up the keys from the selling Agents and move into your new home. Usually this happens early afternoon.
We previously instructed solicitors with offices in Morganstown on the Nottingham solicitor panel. They are now charging me an additional fee for handling the Nottingham mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee specified by Nottingham?
Unfortunately, so long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your solicitor is entitled to charge a fee for this. The charge is not set by Nottingham but by your Morganstown property lawyer. Plenty of firms on the Nottingham panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee but many firms include it on their overall fee.
It is unclear whether my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have telephoned my Morganstown bank branch on numerous occasions and was told it wasn't an issue and they will lend. My Morganstown conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I simply don't know who is right.
Provided that the conveyancer is on the lender approved list, she or he must adhere to the CML Handbook specifications for the lender. 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 bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
The deeds to our home can not be found. The lawyers who handled the conveyancing in Morganstown 4 years ago are no longer around. What do I do?
These day there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your conveyancer should be aware exactly where to look for all the suitable paperwork so you may purchase or dispose of your property without any difficulty. Where copies can’t be located, your solicitor can put in place insurance or indemnities protecting you against possible claims on your property.
