Your solicitor should check the registered title as conveyancing in Rye will on occasion reveal restrictions in the title documents which restrict certain works or necessitated the consent of a 3rd party.

You should check these things with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.

How can we know in advance if a Rye conveyancing solicitor on the UBS panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in Rye obtaining recommendations is a good start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always recommend that you speak with the solicitor carrying out your conveyancing.

I can not work out if my bank requires a lease extension. I have called my Rye bank branch on various occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they will lend. My Rye conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- called and was told they refuse to lend in accordance with their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I have no idea who is right.

The lawyer has to comply with the CML Handbook section two requirements for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

I purchased my home on 6 February and the transaction details are still not registered. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Rye expressed confidence that it will be concluded inside ten days. Are properties in Rye particularly slow to register?

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Rye registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust according to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any 3rd parties. At present approximately three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with within two weeks but some can be subject to protracted hold-ups. Historically registration occurs once the buyer is living at the premises so an expedited registration is not typically primary concern yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Rye. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build conveyancing.

    Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. 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.
