Last November we completed a house move in Newton Longville. We have noticed several issues with the house which we believe were overlooked in the conveyancing searches. Do we have any recourse? What searches should? have been carried out as part of conveyancing in Newton Longville?
It is not clear from the question as to the nature of the problems and if they are unique to conveyancing in Newton Longville. Conveyancing searches and investigations initiated during the buying process are designed to help avoid problems. As part of the process, the vendor answers a questionnaire known as a Seller’s Property Information Form. If the information proves to be incorrect, 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 Newton Longville.
We decided to purchase a newbuild flat in Newton Longville with a residential mortgage from The Royal Bank of Scotland.We use our Newton Longville conveyancing lawyer but The Royal Bank of Scotland informed us she’s not listed on their "panel". We have to appoint a The Royal Bank of Scotland panel lawyer or retain our preferred solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?
Unfortunately,no. The loan issued to you contains various provisions, one of which will be that lawyers will be on the The Royal Bank of Scotland conveyancing panel. in the past, most banks had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for The Royal Bank of Scotland

I am being told by my solicitor that defective lease insurance is required on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Newton Longville conveyancing?
The appropriate level of defective lease indemnity insurance depends on who your lender is. It would differ for example between HSBC Bank and The Royal Bank of Scotland. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to members of the public take out such policies.

I am looking for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one round the corner in Newton Longville I like with open areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 49 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Newton Longville suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may 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 owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
Back In 2001, I bought a leasehold house in Newton Longville. Conveyancing and Barclays mortgage went though with no issue. I have received a letter from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. It included a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1995. The conveyancing solicitor in Newton Longville who previously acted has long since retired. What should I do?
First contact HMLR to be sure that the individual purporting to own the freehold is indeed the new freeholder. You do not need to instruct a Newton Longville conveyancing firm to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for a few pound. You should note that regardless, even if this is the rightful freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.
