My Towyn conveyancer has uncovered an inconsistency between the assumptions in the valuation report and what is revealed within the conveyancing documents. My solicitor has advised that he is obliged to ensure that the lender is happy with this discrepancy and is still content to lend. Is my lawyer’s stance correct?
Your property lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for both parties.
Is there a reason why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Towyn is more expensive?
In short, leasehold conveyancing in Towyn and elsewhere usually necessitates more hours of investigation compared to freehold conveyancing. This includes analysing the lease terms, liaising with the landlord concerning the service of applicable notices, obtaining current service charge and management information, securing the landlord’s consents and reviewing management accounts. The obligations on both the landlord and the tenant in the lease need to be studied by the buyer’s conveyancing team and read from beginning to end – no matter how many different leaseholders have owned the lease since it was first granted.
We are selling our apartment in Towyn. Does the conveyancing practitioner need to be on the Principality conveyancing panel in order to deal with the discharge of my mortgage?
Ordinarily, even if your lawyer is not on the Principality 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 requirements fairly frequently at the moment.

I am purchasing a detached bungalow in Towyn. The intention is to an extension at the rear at the property.Will legal investigations on the property involve investigations to determine if these works are prohibited?
Your property lawyer will review the registered title as conveyancing in Towyn will on occasion reveal restrictions in the title deeds which prevent certain alterations or require the permission of another owner. Many works call for local authority planning permissions and approval in compliance with building regulations. Some locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions. It would be sensible to check these issues with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.
I can not fathom if my lender requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Towyn bank branch on a couple of occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they would lend. My Towyn conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- called to say that they would not lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. I have no idea who is right.
Provided that the lawyer is on the bank approved list, they must follow the CML Handbook requirements for the lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company 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 bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.
