Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Perranporth

I am buying a property without a mortgage in Perranporth. I have lived for the last 15 years in Perranporth. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. Given that I have knowledge of the road and vicinity very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?

In the absence of a home loan, then almost all of the Perranporth conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your lawyer will try and sway you, perhaps strongly, that you should have searches completed, but she has a professional duty to take that path of guidance. One thing to consider; if you are likely to dispose of the house one day, it could be of interest to your future buyer what the searches disclose. Sometimes properties with functional issues can still show up negative search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Perranporth should be able to give you some sensible guidance here.

we are a couple who intend to purchase a newly converted apartment in Perranporth with a loan from Coventry Building Society.We would like to retain our Perranporth conveyancing solicitor but Coventry Building Society informed us she’s not listed on their "panel". It seems we are left with no choice but to instruct a Coventry Building Society panel solicitor or keep our preferred solicitor and fork out for one of their panel ones to act for them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that Coventry Building Society use our lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The loan issued to you is subject to its various provisions, a common one being that lawyers must be on the Coventry Building Society solicitor panel. Until recently, most banks had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose 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. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Coventry Building Society

When it comes to mortgage companies such as Clydesdale, do Perranporth conveyancers incur a yearly amount to be on the list of approved solicitors?

We are unaware of any bank fees to register on their list of approved firms, although some do charge an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.

is it true that all Perranporth solicitor firms on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel are regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?

As solicitors, in order to be on the Clydesdale approved list of solicitors they would need to be regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. The majority of lenders do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such firms would be overseen by the CLC.

The mortgage over my property is with Nationwide for my property in Perranporth. Conveyancing has been completed months 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 Nationwide?

Nationwide must be informed of your intention before renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Nationwide’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let 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 Nationwide directly. It should not be necessary to do this via a Nationwide conveyancing panel firm.

I need some quick conveyancing in Perranporth as I am faced with an ultimatum to sign on the dotted line in less than one month. A home loan is not required. Can I avoid the conveyancing searches to save money and time?

As you are not taking a mortgage you are at liberty not to do searches although no conveyancer would recommend that you don't. With lots of history conveyancing in Perranporth the following are instances of what can be revealed and adversely affect market value: Refused Planning Applications, Outstanding Fees, Outstanding Grants, Unadopted Roads,...

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £305k and identified one close by in Perranporth I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 51 years on the lease. There is not much else in Perranporth for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?

If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities 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 solicitor regarding this.
