I am purchasing a house for cash in Rednal. I have lived for the last 15 years in Rednal. Conveyancing searches are expensive. As I know the area and road very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?
In the absence of a home loan, then almost all of the Rednal conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your solicitor will 'advise', no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches done, but he is duty bound to take that path of guidance. Do consider; if you are intend to dispose of the house at a future date, it will be of interest to your prospective purchaser what the searches determine. On occasion properties with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. A good conveyancing solicitor in Rednal should provide you some constructive advice concerning this.
Completed the sale of my flat in Rednal last August but our buyer keeps calling daily to moan that their conveyancer needs to hear from mysolicitor. What are the post completion sale legalities now that I have sold?
Following your sale your lawyer should send the transfer documentation and all additional paperwork to the buyer’s solicitors. If applicable, your conveyancer should also confirm that the home loan has been redeemed to the buyers solicitors. There is unlikely to be post completion requirements just for conveyancing in Rednal.
I am buying my first flat in Rednal benefiting from help to buy. The sellers would not budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep advised me not inform my conveyancer about this extras as it could put at risk my mortgage with the lender. 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 leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one close by in Rednal I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Rednal for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?
If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be problematic. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.
