My wife and I are refinancing our flat in Pyle with Skipton. We have a son 19 who lives with us. Our solicitor has asked us to disclose any adults other than ourselves who reside at the property. Our lawyer has now e-mailed a document for our son to sign, giving up any rights in the event that the flat is repossessed. I have a couple of questions (1) Is this document specific to the Skipton conveyancing panel as he did not need to sign this form when we remortgaged 5 years ago (2) In signing this form is our son in any way compromising his right to inherit the property?
On the face of it your lawyer has done nothing wrong as it is established procedure for any occupier who is aged 17 or over to sign the necessary Consent Form, which is purely to state that any rights he has in the property are postponed and secondary to Skipton. This is solely used to protect Skipton if the property were re-possessed so that in such circumstances, your son would be legally obliged to leave. It does not impact your son’s right to inherit the apartment. Please note that if your son were to inherit and the mortgage in favour of Skipton had not been discharged, he would be liable to take over the loan or pay it off, but other than that, there is nothing stopping him from keeping the property in accordance with your will or the rules of intestacy.
It has been three months following my purchase conveyancing in Pyle concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I'm buying my first flat in Pyle with a loan from Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. The builders would not reduce the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The property agent told me not inform my lawyer about the side-deal as it could jeopardize my loan with Norwich and Peterborough Building Society. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
I am looking for a flat up to £235,500 and found one close by in Pyle I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Pyle in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
My partner and I have recently had an offer accepted on our first house in Pyle, and need to get solicitors lined up. We have utilised the numerous comparison based websites and the fee estimates are from all over the country. Is it critical to have a Pyle conveyancing practitioner local to the prospective property? I am willing to do all the communicating over the internet, but I am thinking at some point we may be required to attend the property lawyer's office to sign documents?
On the whole there is no need to attend the office of your property lawyer, they can send any relevant contracts to you, which you can sign and return. Many home movers nevertheless opt to use a locally based solicitor, but it's by no means essential for conveyancing in Pyle.
