After shopping around on the internet I have found a Tarporley conveyancer having checked that they are on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Virgin Money will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Virgin Money will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your conveyancer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Tarporley postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Virgin Money, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Tarporley.
Should our conveyancer be raising questions regarding flooding as part of the conveyancing in Tarporley.
Flooding is a growing risk for conveyancers specialising in conveyancing in Tarporley. Some people will buy a property in Tarporley, fully expectant that at some time, it may be flooded. However, aside from the physical damage, where a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable building insurance, or sell the property. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.
Lawyers are not best placed to impart advice on flood risk, but there are a number of searches that can be carried out by the buyer or by their solicitors which will figure out the risks in Tarporley. The conventional set of property information forms supplied to a purchaser’s solicitor (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) includes a usual question of the vendor to determine if the property has suffered from flooding. If the premises has been flooded in past and is not notified by the vendor, then a purchaser may bring a claim for damages stemming from an misleading response. The purchaser’s solicitors may also conduct an environmental report. This will disclose whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations will need to be carried out.
It has been 2 months since my purchase conveyancing in Tarporley completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one close by in Tarporley I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Tarporley in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
