Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Sturminster Newton

Our Sturminster Newton lawyer has identified a discrepancy between the information in the valuation survey and what is revealed within the conveyancing documents. My lawyer has advised that he is duty bound to ensure that the bank is happy with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my conveyancer’s approach right?

Your solicitor must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook conditions which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for both parties.

How does conveyancing in Sturminster Newton differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Sturminster Newton come to us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because developers in Sturminster Newton tend to acquire the site, 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 Sturminster Newton or who has acted in the same development.

Jane (my partner) and I may need to sub-let our Sturminster Newton 1st floor flat for a while due to a new job. We instructed a Sturminster Newton conveyancing firm in 2002 but they have since shut and we did not think at the time get any guidance as to whether the lease prohibits the subletting of the flat. How do we find out?

Even though your last Sturminster Newton conveyancing solicitor is not around you can review your lease to check if you are permitted to let out the apartment. The rule is that if the deeds are non-specific, subletting is allowed. There may be a precondition that you must seek permission from your landlord or some other party before subletting. This means that you cannot sublet in the absence of first obtaining consent. Such consent is not allowed to be unreasonably withheld. If your lease does not allow you to sublet you will need to ask your landlord for their consent.
