I am considering applying for a HSBC mortgage for purchase of a new build (under development) in Rawdon with 70% loan to value. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for HSBC ?
In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the HSBC conveyancing panel, but HSBC would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.
The deeds to my property are lost. The conveyancers who conducted the conveyancing in Rawdon 10 years ago no longer exist. What are my options?
Assuming the title is registered the information relating to your proprietorship will be held by the Land Registry with a Title Number. It is easy to conduct a search at the Land Registry, locate your house and secure current copies of the property title for a small fee. Where the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will also normally retain a file copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be ordered for a small fee.
I am buying a new build flat in Rawdon. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.
Set out below are examples of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Rawdon
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. Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?
