Do I need to pop into the offices of the solicitor to execute the mortgage deed? If so, I will appoint a lawyer who conducts conveyancing in Tickhill so that I can attend their offices if required.
Nowadays approved lawyers for banks carry out all of the communications via the post, internet or over phone calls. This means that they can undertake the conveyancing transaction regardless of where you live in the country. However you should check if you can still book an appointment to visit conveyancing lawyer if you prefer.
3 months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Tickhill concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £215,000. 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 residence 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.
How does conveyancing in Tickhill differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Tickhill approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because house builders in Tickhill typically acquire the real estate, 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 property lawyers 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 Tickhill or who has acted in the same development.
I opted to have a survey done on a property in Tickhill prior to appointing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. The surveyor has said that some lenders tend refuse to grant a mortgage on this type of property.
It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different requirements for example to Nationwide. Should you wish to telephone us we can investigate further via the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Tickhill. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
