Our Nafferton solicitor has spotted a difference between the surveyor’s assumptions in the valuation report and what is revealed within the legal papers for the property. My lawyer has advised that he must check that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my conveyancer’s stance right?
Your solicitor 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 both parties.
How does conveyancing in Nafferton differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Nafferton approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because developers in Nafferton usually buy the real estate, 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 Nafferton or who has acted in the same development.

Back In 2008, I bought a leasehold flat in Nafferton. Conveyancing and Leeds Building Society mortgage are in place. I have received a letter from someone saying they have taken over the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1996. The conveyancing practitioner in Nafferton who acted for me is not around. What should I do?
The first thing you should do is contact HMLR to make sure that this person is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion. There is no need to incur the fees of a Nafferton conveyancing practitioner to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for a few pound. You should note that in any event, even if this is the legitimate landlord, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.
Nafferton Conveyancing for Leasehold Flats - Sample of Questions you should ask before Purchasing
Is the freehold reversion owned jointly by the leaseholders? Does the lease include onerous restrictions? How much is the ground rent and service charge?
After what feels like an age I have had an offer on an apartment in Nafferton agreed to, the vendor does however have an associated purchase. The owners have offered on a property, however it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other flats booked. I have selected a local conveyancing lawyer in Nafferton. What do I do now? When do I get the mortgage application with Barclays going with Barclays?
It is standard to have apprehensions where there is an associated chain given your reluctance to be too out of pocket too early (home loan application is in the region of £1k, then valuation, Nafferton conveyancing search costs, etc). The first thing to do is check that your conveyancer is on the Barclays approved list. Regarding the next stages this very much dictated by the circumstances of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market some buyers will apply for a home loan with Barclays and arrange for the survey and only if it comes back ok would they request their conveyancing practitioner to move forward with the conveyancing in Nafferton.
