My wife and I buying a victorian detached house in Swavesey. We would like to carry out an extension to the side at the house.Will the conveyancing process include investigations to see if these works are permitted?
Your solicitor will review the registered title as conveyancing in Swavesey will occasionally identify restrictions in the title deeds which restrict categories of changes or necessitated the consent of a 3rd party. Many works need local authority planning permissions and approval in accordance building regulations. Some locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions. You should check these things with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
is it true that all Swavesey conveyancing solicitors on the Skipton conveyancing panel are governed by the SRA?
As solicitors, in order to be on the Skipton approved list of solicitors they would need to be overseen by the SRA. Many mortgage companies do list licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such practice would be regulated by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.
The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Swavesey. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.
Set out below are examples of a few leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Swavesey
Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified.
I was pointed in your direction by a couple of local selling agents in Swavesey to find a solicitor using your seach tool. What’s the financial upside for Estate Agents to offer your lawyers over and above alternative conveyancing organisations?
We don’t make any financial incentive for directing people in our direction. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission because home movers will think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
My husband and I are novice buyers - agreed a price, but the selling agent has warned us that the vendor will only issue a contract if we use the agent's chosen solicitors as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Swavesey
It is unlikely the owners are behind this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious purchaser is not the way to achieve this. Contact the owners directly and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with finances in place © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you are going to appoint your own,trusted Swavesey conveyancing firm - not the ones that will earn their estate agent a commission or hit his conveyancing thresholds set by senior management.
