Forgive me if this question is silly but I am new to the home moving as FTB of a garden flat in Penley. Do I collect the keys to the premises on the completion date from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Penley?
On the day of completion you will not be required to attend the conveyancers office in Penley. Your solicitors will electronically transfer the completion advance to the owner’s lawyers, and once they have received this, you should be called to receive the keys from the property Agents and move into your new home. Usually this occurs early afternoon.
After shopping around on the internet I have found a Penley conveyancing practitioner having checked that they are on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Co-operative will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Co-operative will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your lawyer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Penley postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Co-operative, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Penley.
Our offer on a semi in Penley has been accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have placed an offer on somewhere, however it’s not yet tied up, and have viewings of other flats in the pipeline. I have instructed a high street conveyancing solicitor in Penley. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with TSB going?
It is usual to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Penley conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you should ensure that your conveyancing practitioner is on the TSB conveyancing panel. As to the next phase this very much depends on the uniqueness of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market the majority of purchasers would apply for the mortgage with TSB and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their lawyer to press on with searches.
The deeds to our property are lost. The solicitors who did the conveyancing in Penley 4 years ago no longer exist. What are my next steps?
You no longer need to have the physical deeds to prove you own the land or property, as the Land Registry have everything they need in a digital format.
About to purchase a new build flat in Penley. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.
Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Penley
Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier? Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents.
