Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unexperienced as a first time purchaser of a two bedroom flat in Oakwood. Do I pick up the keys to the premises on the completion date from my conveyancer? If so, I will appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Oakwood?
On the day of completion you will not be required to attend the conveyancers office in Oakwood. Your solicitors will arrange to send the completion advance to the vendor’s lawyers, and once they have received this, you should be invited to pick up the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property. This tends to happen early afternoon.
My fiancee and I are at the point of viewing apartments in Oakwood and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it best to have a solicitor on ‘stand by’? I am planning to take a home loan with Principality.
It would be wise to instigate your search sooner rather than later. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their details on to the estate agent. Given that you are seeking a mortgage with Principality, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Principality conveyancing panel.
I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Oakwood off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Principality. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?
It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Principality, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Principality conveyancing panel.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up during conveyancing in Oakwood?
Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the process of conveyancing in Oakwood. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one near me in Oakwood I like with open areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Oakwood suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
If you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
