I have a decision in principle. The lender mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to appoint their panel solicitor as I would much rather use a specialised conveyancing solicitor in Radford?
You should check but the the likelihood is that give you one of their panel conveyancers where you take up the "fee-free" offer. Speak to the lender to determine if they make available a cash alternative. Some mortgage companies have previously offered a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case you could put that amount towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor in Radford.
I have justdiscovered that Action Conveyancing have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Radford for a purchase of a leasehold flat 9 months ago. How can I establish that my home is not still registered in the name of the previous owner?
The easiest method to check if the premises is registered to you, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Radford conveyancing specialists.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one close by in Radford I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Radford for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
If you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass 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 regarding this matter.
I acquired a house in Radford last 30/4/2019 and to date it is still not registered with the Land Registry. It is part of a new estate and my conveyancer told me that it may take twelve months to register. I have contacted the Land Registry directly and they say that the initial application was cancelled due to failure to reply to requisitions. Do I need to be concerned?
It is your solicitor that you should get in touch with in order to satisfy any concerns which have arisen as part of the registration process for your Radford property. Normal Radford conveyancing practice includes an undertaking on the part of the vendor’s conveyancer that they will help resolve any requisition raised by HMLR so it may be a case of seeking to enforce that undertaking if necessary.
