Forgive me if this question is silly but I am wet behind the ears as a 1st time buyer of a two bedroom flat in Seascale and Sellafield. Do I pick up the keys to the house on the completion date from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will appoint a local conveyancing solicitor in Seascale and Sellafield?
There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will electronically transfer the purchase money to the vendor’s conveyancers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be able to pick up the keys from the property Agents and start moving into the property. Usually this occurs early afternoon.
My fiancee and I are in the process of looking at flats in Seascale and Sellafield and I am now considering a potential offer. Should I already have a conveyancer appointed at this point? I am planning to take a mortgage with Leeds Building Society.
It would be wise to start your search sooner rather than later. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their details on to the selling agent. As you are getting a mortgage with Leeds Building Society, ask your prospective lawyers if they are on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel otherwise they can't do the mortgage legal work.
I can not work out if my lender requires a lease extension. I have called my Seascale and Sellafield building society branch on various occasions and was told it does not affect the mortgage offer and they would lend. My Seascale and Sellafield conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called and was told they refuse to lend in accordance with their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?
The lawyer must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two specifications for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender 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 remaining.
