I am soon to complete buying a property in Rutland but as a consequence of damage from a small fire at the property I have was able negotiate reparation from the seller in the sum of £3k taking the form of a reduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of the conveyancing process however Kent Reliance are not allowing this. Why were they approached?
The solicitor that is on a Kent Reliance conveyancing panel is duty bound to advise Kent Reliance of any changes to the purchase price. If you prohibit your solicitor to report the price change to Kent Reliance then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Kent Reliance and you would have to appoint a new solicitor for your conveyancing in Rutland.
Finally the sale completed on my house in Rutland last March yet the purchaser is telephoning every few hours complaining that her conveyancer needs to hear from mysolicitor. What should my lawyer have done now that I have sold?
After completion of your sale your lawyer is obliged to send the transfer documentation and all supplemental paperwork to the purchaser's conveyancer. Depending on the transaction, your conveyancer must also evidence that the home loan has been repaid to the buyers lawyers. There is unlikely to be post completion procedures just for conveyancing in Rutland.
My uncle advised me that in purchasing a property in Rutland there may be a number of restrictions limiting what one can do in terms of external alterations to a property. Is this right?
We are aware of anumerous of properties in Rutland which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to perform external variations. Part of the conveyancing in Rutland should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.
My wife and I are in the throws of viewing apartments in Rutland and I am about to put in an offer. Is it premature to have a solicitor in place? I am planning to take a mortgage with Principality.
It would be sensible to start your search sooner rather than later. After you have chosen your lawyer and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their details on to the estate agent. As you are taking out a mortgage with Principality, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Principality conveyancing panel.
Planning on purchasing a flat in Rutland. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Rutland lawyer is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel.
Just acquired a detached house in Rutland , how long will it take for the Land Registry to record my ownership? My Rutland conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to check the post completion formalities are addressed.
As far as conveyancing in Rutland registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can vary depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry communicate with any third persons or bodies. As of today in the region of three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with within two weeks but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Historically registration is effected after the new owner is living at the premises therefore 'speed' is not usually an essential issue but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
We have just had a bid accepted on our 1st house in Rutland, and are now looking to get solicitors instructed. We have utilised the different comparison tools and the fee estimates are from all over the England and Wales. Is it important to have a Rutland lawyer local to our prospective house? I am fine to do all the communicating electronically, but I guess at some point we will need to attend the solicitor's office to sign documents?
The solicitor does not need to be in Rutland, but choosing local means that you have the option to go in if needed, for instance, if a signature is immediately necessary. Also, a Rutland solicitor is likely to be familiar with local agents and (if the vendor has chosen a local conveyancing practitioner) with them, which will help keep things moving faster.
