Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Newton Abbot

We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The bank mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to use their panel lawyer as I would much rather appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Newton Abbot?

You should check but the chances are that appoint one of their panel conveyancers if you accept the "fee-free" incentive. Speak to the lender and check if they offer you a monetary alternative. In the past a few mortgage companies offered a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case you could put that amount towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor near Newton Abbot.

Me and my brother own a renovated Victorian property in Newton Abbot. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Halifax. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold with the exact same address. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered proprietor of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Newton Abbot and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also enquire as to the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the conveyancing.

I opted to have a survey done on a property in Newton Abbot ahead of appointing solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the property. My surveyor advised that some banks tend refuse to issue a loan on this type of home.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Lloyds has different instructions for example to Halifax. If you contact us we can check with the relevant bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Newton Abbot. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Newton Abbot to see if the conveyancing will be more expensive.

How does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my business property in Newton Abbot and how can you help?

The 1954 Act affords security of tenure to business leaseholders, giving them the dueness to apply to court for a continuation of occupancy when the lease comes to an end. There are certain specified grounds that a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are complicated. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing. Newton Abbot is one of the many areas of the UK in which our lawyers are based

My husband and I have had DIP from Clydesdale who said that they will lend up to £300k. At what point do we need to instruct a practitioner for conveyancing? Newton Abbot is where we plan to move to.

You can appoint a property lawyer now so that the conveyancer can open the file so they can commence the AML checks etc. If and when you wish them to commence work they will seek a payment on account normally about £225. That should normally be once you have the mortgage offer and valuation back, however should you want to speed the process you can get going quicker albeit risking some money.
