Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Moss Nook

My partner and I have lately bought a house in Moss Nook. We have noticed several problems with the property which we suspect were missed in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? Can you clarify the type of searches that needed to have been ordered for conveyancing in Moss Nook?

It is not clear from the question as what problems have arisen and if they are relate to conveyancing in Moss Nook. Conveyancing searches and investigations undertaken as part of the buying process are supposed to help avoid problems. As part of the legal transfer of property, a seller fills in a document called a SPIF. answers turns out to be inaccurate, you could possibly take legal action against the seller for any losses that you have suffered. The survey should have identified any problems with the structure of the property. Assuming a detailed survey was carried out and the issues were not identified, you may have a claim against the surveyor. However, if you did not have a full survey, you may be responsible for fixing any defects that have now been noted. We would always encourage buyers to take every possible step to ensure they are completely aware of the condition of a property before purchase regardless of whether they are buying in Moss Nook.

We are getting a further advance on our mortgage from TSB as we intend to conduct renovations to our property in Moss Nook. Are we obliged to choose a nearby Moss Nook solicitor on the TSB conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?

TSB would not normally instruct firms on their conveyancing panel to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the TSB panel.

I had a mortgage agreed in principle with Co-operative. Moss Nook conveyancing solicitors were selected. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Co-operative?

There is no definitive answer here. Have Co-operative done the survey? Have you informed Co-operative as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Co-operative conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.

Planning on purchasing a house in Moss Nook. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Barclays conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Moss Nook property lawyer is on the Barclays conveyancing panel.

I have recentlyfound out that Stirling Law have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Moss Nook for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 12 months ago. How can I check that the property is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?

The easiest method to check if the premises 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 Moss Nook conveyancing specialists.

For most leasehold sales in Moss Nook conveyancing will involve, questions about the management of a building inevitably needing to be answered directly by the freeholder or its agent, this includes :

Your solicitor will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Moss Nook leasehold property is £350. For Moss Nook conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved.

There are no doubt additional issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information without first getting professional advice.
