Me and my wife are buying a maisonette in Perranporth. My property lawyer is not on the lender solicitor panel. Is it possible for me to appoint my Perranporth conveyancing solicitor notwithstanding that they are not on the bank panel of approved conveyancing solicitors?
You must have a solicitor to deal with the legal work required if you require a mortgage to purchase your home. They will conduct all the relevant investigations on the property, make sure that you will be properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the necessary mortgage documentation is dealt with. One can instruct a Perranporth lawyer of your choice. Nevertheless, if the solicitor selected is not a member of the bank approved list supplemental costs will be levied as separate legal representation will be need by the bank. Lender panel applications may be submitted, so if your lawyer has not in the past applied for membership they should take the opportunity to apply.
I am nearing an exchange on a house in Perranporth and my mum and dad have sent the exchange deposit to my property lawyer. I am now informed that as the deposit has been received from someone other than me my property lawyer needs to disclose this to my bank. I am advised that, in also acting for the bank he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is not just from me. I advised the bank concerning my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really appropriate for this now to delay the deal?
Your conveyancer is obliged to clarify with the bank to make sure that they understand that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own funds. Your solicitor can only report this to your bank if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Perranporth. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.
Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Perranporth
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. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? 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.
I decided to have a survey completed on a house in Perranporth in advance of instructing solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. Our surveyor advised that some banks will not give a mortgage on a flying freehold property.

The primary upside of using a local Perranporth conveyancing firm is that you can visit the firm to sign paperwork, deliver your ID and apply pressure on them if necessary. Having local Perranporth know how is a bonus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If if people you trust instructed your friend and in the main were impressed that should surpass using an unfamiliar Perranporth conveyancing solicitor just because they are based in the area.
