Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Silverton

I am remortgaging my home in Silverton, does my lawyer have to be on the Barclays Conveyancing panel?

In theory, you could use a solicitor that is not on the Barclays conveyancing panel, but Barclays would require one of their panel solicitors to be instructed to act in their interests, and you'd have to pay for this - so most people instruct a panel solicitor. It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up as part of conveyancing in Silverton?

Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Silverton. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

How does conveyancing in Silverton differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Silverton contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because builders in Silverton typically purchase 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 conveyancers 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 Silverton or who has acted in the same development.

Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Silverton you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy.

If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
