Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Tilbury

Various web forums that I have frequented warn that are a common cause of delay in Tilbury house deals. Is that correct?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the conclusions of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the common causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Local searches are not likely to feature in any holding up conveyancing in Tilbury.

Just acquired a detached house in Tilbury , how long will it take for the Land Registry to record the transfer to my name? My Tilbury conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure the registration formalities are dealt with.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Tilbury registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry have to notify any other parties. Currently roughly three quarters of such applications are fully addressed within 12 days but some can be subject to protracted hold-ups. Registration takes place after the buyer is living at the premises therefore 'speed' is not always an essential issue but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

I am purchasing my first flat in Tilbury with the aid of help to buy. The developers refused to move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The property agent advised me not to tell my conveyancer about the side-deal as it will impact my mortgage with the lender. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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 brother has suggested that I instruct his conveyancers in Tilbury. Should I use them?

Much as we are happy to recommend a Tilbury conveyancing lawyer the ideal way to find a conveyancing practitioner is to get guidance from friends or relatives who have used the conveyancer that you are contemplating using.

We are in the middle of buying a residence in Tilbury. Conveyancing lawyer has told us the title is "Leasehold". Does this impact the marketability of the property?

Tilbury conveyancing does not ordinarily involve leasehold houses. The crucial factor here is the remaining lease term and the ground rent. If it's 999 years with a peppercorn rent, it's essentially freehold, so it shouldn't impact the marketability significantly.

At the other extreme, if it's, say, 50 years it will have a significant effect on the saleability, and probably wouldn't be acceptable to the mortgage company. The length of lease and ground rent will be stated in the lease provided to your conveyancing practitioner.
