My best friend’s step-father is a conveyancer. I suspect that I'll be able to get friends and family fee for conveyancing, However if that does not come materialise, what level of costs would I typically be looking at for conveyancing in Tibshelf?
You should contrast pricing. Make use of our comparison tool on this page. Whilst quotes may contrast greatly but service levels do are distinct between property lawyers as is the case with the vast majority of professional services.
My partner and I changing mortgage lender for our penthouse in Tibshelf with Santander. We have a son 18 who lives with us. Our solicitor has asked us to disclose anyone over the age of 17 other than ourselves who lives in the flat. The solicitor has now sent a form for our son to sign, giving up any rights in the event that the flat is repossessed. I have two concerns (1) Is this document specific to the Santander conveyancing panel as he did not need to sign this form when we remortgaged 4 years ago (2) Does our son by signing this extinguish his rights to inherit the property?
First, rest assured that your Santander conveyancing panel solicitor is doing the right thing as it is established procedure for any occupier who is aged 17 or over to sign the necessary Consent Form, which is purely to state that any rights he has in the property are postponed and secondary to Santander. This is solely used to protect Santander if the property were re-possessed so that in such circumstances, your son would be legally obliged to leave. It does not impact your son’s right to inherit the apartment. Please note that if your son were to inherit and the mortgage in favour of Santander had not been discharged, he would be liable to take over the loan or pay it off, but other than that, there is nothing stopping him from keeping the property in accordance with your will or the rules of intestacy.
I own a freehold premises in Tibshelf yet invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?
It is rare for properties in Tibshelf and has limited impact for conveyancing in Tibshelf but some freehold properties in England (particularly common in North West England) pay an annual sum known as a Chief Rent or a Rentcharge to a third party who has no other legal interest in the land.
Rentcharge payments are usually between £2.00 and £5.00 per year. Rentcharges date back many centuries, but the Rent Charge Act 1977 barred the generation of fresh rentcharges from 1977 onwards.
Old rentcharges can now be redeemed by making a one off payment under the Act. Any rentcharges that are still in existence post 2037 is to be extinguished.
I'm purchasing my first flat in Tibshelf with the aid of help to buy. The developers would not reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The property agent advised me not reveal to my lawyer about the side-deal as it could adversely affect my loan with the lender. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
My parents cant seem to find their Tibshelf property on the HM Land Registry website. They recall that 50 years ago when they purchased the property there were complications concerning the address not being recognised in some systems.
The vast majority of properties in Tibshelf should show up. Have you endevoured to search to just the postcode. Usually it should reveal all the premises within that postcode. Where recorded it will show up with a title number. If they bought back in the 60’s it's conceivable it may be not yet registered. The address may still be revealed but with the title number shown 'na'. In this scenario you will need to find the original title documentation which may be with your parent’s mortgage company.
