I have todaybecome aware that Arc property Solicitors have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in St Mawes for a purchase of a freehold house 10 months ago. How can I check that my home is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?
The quickest way to check if the premises is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of St Mawes conveyancing specialists.
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in St Mawes I like with a park and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in St Mawes suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
Should you need a home loan that many years will likely be problematic. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

I have finally had an offer on an flat in St Mawes accepted, the vendor does however have a tied purchase. The vendors have offered on on an apartment, but it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other flats in the pipeline. I have instructed a nearby conveyancing solicitor in St Mawes. What should be my next step? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Nottingham?
It is usual to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (mortgage application is approx £1k, then valuation, St Mawes conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you should ensure that your conveyancer is on the Nottingham approved list. As to the subsequent steps this very much dictated by the circumstances of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market many home buyers will apply for the mortgage with Nottingham and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their conveyancer to press on with the conveyancing in St Mawes.
