I do hope you can help me. My Pevensey Bay solicitor is advising me that she is duty bound toorder Pevensey Bay conveyancing searches becausethe firm are on the Santandersolicitor panel. Is my lawyer right?
You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a mortgage company your lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Pevensey Bay conveyancing searches.
Forgive me if this question is silly but I am wet behind the ears as a first time buyer of a garden flat in Pevensey Bay. Do I pick up the keys to the house on completion from my solicitor? If so, I will instruct a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Pevensey Bay?
On the day of completion you do not need to attend the conveyancers office in Pevensey Bay. Your solicitors will arrange to send the completion advance to the owner’s lawyers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be able to receive the keys from the selling Agents and move into your new home. Usually this happens between 1 and 3pm.
My fiancee and I are at the point of viewing apartments in Pevensey Bay and I am about to put in an offer. Should I already have a conveyancing practitioner appointed at this stage? I am planning to take a home loan with Barclays.
It would be advisable to start 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 selling agent. As you are obtaining a mortgage with Barclays, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Barclays conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.
It is unclear whether my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have telephoned my Pevensey Bay bank branch on various occasions and was told it does not affect the mortgage offer and they would lend. My Pevensey Bay conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they would not lend based on their specific requirements. I simply don't know who is right.
Your lawyer has to follow the CML Handbook Part 2 provisions for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company 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 mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
I opted to have a survey carried out on a house in Pevensey Bay prior to appointing conveyancers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. My surveyor advised that some lenders will refuse to issue a mortgage on this type of home.
