Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Aldermore. Ryhall conveyancing solicitors have been instructed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Aldermore?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have Aldermore completed the survey? Have you advised Aldermore as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Aldermore conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
We expect to receive a OIP from RBS this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do RBS recommend any Ryhall solicitors on the RBS conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Ryhall solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the RBS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and RBS through the process.
After months of negotiation I have agreed a price on a house in Ryhall. My financial adviser pressured me to appoint their conveyancer. I paid an upfront payment of £150. A couple of days later, the lawyer contacted me embarrassingly acknowledging that they were not on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Yorkshire BS panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
How does conveyancing in Ryhall differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Ryhall contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because developers in Ryhall usually acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Ryhall or who has acted in the same development.
I decided to have a survey done on a house in Ryhall ahead of retaining lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the property. My surveyor has said that some mortgage companies may not grant a loan on such a home.
It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different requirements for example to Birmingham Midshires. If you e-mail us we can investigate further via the appropriate bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Ryhall. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
