I am the single recipient of my late mum's will and I have everything in my name now, including the house in Pentyrch. The Pentyrch property was put into my name in March. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship may be considered the same way as though I had purchased the property in March. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The CML handbook mandates conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you could be caught by that. Most mortgage companies would take a sensible view as this clause is principally there to capture subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.
I have a mortgage with Nottingham for my property in Pentyrch. Conveyancing was finalised some time ago. In the event that I decide to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a buy-to-let mortgage or inform Nottingham?
Nottingham must be informed of your intention before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Nottingham’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Nottingham will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Nottingham directly. You need not do this via a Nottingham conveyancing panel lawyer.
I can not work out if my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Pentyrch building society branch on various occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they would lend. My Pentyrch conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their published requirements. Who do I believe?
As long as the conveyancer is on the mortgage company panel, they must adhere to the CML Handbook specifications for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
We're novice buyers - agreed a price, but the property agent has warned us that the seller will only proceed if we instruct the agent's chosen lawyers as they want a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a local solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Pentyrch
We suspect that the owner is unaware of this demand. If they want ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious buyer is counter productive. Try to communicate with the sellers directly and make the point that (a)you are serious purchasers (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you are going to appoint your preferred Pentyrch conveyancing lawyers - rather thanthose that will earn the estate agent a kickback or meet his conveyancing targets demanded by head office.
I purchased a property in Pentyrch last 16/2/2018 and to date it is still not recorded with HM Land Registry. It was part of a new estate and my lawyer told me that it can take twelve months to complete the registration formalities. I have spoken with the Land Registry directly and they have informed me the initial application was cancelled due to questions not being addressed in time. Do I need to be concerned?
