Why do I have to pay up front for conveyancing in Tisbury?
If you are buying a property in Tisbury your solicitor will ask you put them with monies to cover the search fees. Ordinarily this is called for to cover the fees of the Local Authority Search. When the down payment is as part of the total price then this will be asked for shortly before exchange of contracts. The closing balance that is due should be transferred a few days prior to the day of completion.
My apartment in Tisbury is up for sale and I have a buyer. Does my conveyancer need to be required to be on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel in order to deal with repayment of my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel they can still act for you on your sale. It might be that the lender will not release the original deeds (if applicable and increasingly irrelevant) until after the mortgage is paid off. You should speak to your lawyer directly before you start the process though to ensure that there is no problem as lenders are changing their specifications fairly frequently currently.
I am helping my mother sell her house in Tisbury. Does the conveyancer order the EPC or do I organise this?
Following the demise of Home Packs, energy assessments remained a mandatory part of moving house. An energy assessment should be to hand before the property is put on the market. It is not as aspect of the sale process that conveyancers normally organise. Where you are instructing a Tisbury conveyancing practitioner they might help arrange energy performance certificates given their contacts with reputable Tisbury energy assessors
I can not fathom if my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Tisbury bank branch on various occasions and was told it wasn't a problem and they will lend. My Tisbury conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I simply don't know who is right.
The solicitor has to follow the CML Handbook section two specifications for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
I recently had an offer agreed on an apartment in Tisbury. My mortgage broker pressured me to appoint their conveyancer. I paid an advanced payment of £200. A few days later, the property lawyer contacted me to say that they were not on the Principality conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Principality panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
