Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Trimdon

I am purchasing a house mortgage free in Trimdon. I have resided for the last twelve years in Trimdon. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. As I have knowledge of the area and road very well should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?

In the absence of a mortgage, then almost all of the Trimdon conveyancing searches are at your discretion. Your conveyancer will 'advise', no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches completed, but he is duty bound to take that path of advice. Do bear in mind; if you are going to sell the house at a future date, it will be of interest to your future purchaser what the searches reveal. Sometimes houses with functional issues can still show up unpredicted search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Trimdon should be able to give you some constructive guidance concerning this.

I am the registered owner of a freehold residence in Trimdon but still invoiced for rent, why is this and what is this?

It is rare for properties in Trimdon and has limited impact for conveyancing in Trimdon 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 establishment of new rentcharges post 1977.

I am currently in the process of buying my council flat in Trimdon. I have a mortgage agreed with Nottingham. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Nottingham, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Nottingham conveyancing panel.

It is not clear whether my bank obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Trimdon bank branch on a couple of occasions and was told it wasn't a problem and they would lend. My Trimdon conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called to say that they will not lend based on their specific requirements. Who do I believe?

Your property lawyer has to follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two provisions 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 left on the lease.

Our sealed bid on a property in Trimdon has been accepted, but there is a chain. The owners have put an offer on a property, however it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other apartments booked. I have chosen a local conveyancing solicitor in Trimdon. What do I do now? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with Co-operative?

It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (home loan application is approx £1k, then valuation, Trimdon conveyancing search charges, etc). The first thing to do is check that your property lawyer is on the Co-operative approved list. Regarding the subsequent phase this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. During a hot market the majority of purchasers would apply for a home loan with Co-operative and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their conveyancing practitioner to proceed with the conveyancing in Trimdon.

We have had DIP from Coventry Building Society who said we could borrow up to £400k. When do I need to instruct a solicitor for conveyancing? Trimdon is where we plan to move to.

It would be wise to instruct a conveyancing practitioner now so that the conveyancer can open the ledger so they can conduct the ID checks etc. As and when you wish them to start work you will be asked for a payment on account normally about £175. That should generally be once you have the mortgage offer and survey results, nevertheless if you want to expedite matters you can get going sooner even though you may be risking some money.
