I happen to be the sole beneficiary of my late mum's estate and I have everything in my name alone, including the my former home in Truro. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in June. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship will be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the house in June. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The CML handbook obliges solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be impacted by that. How practical a view lenders take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this requirement chiefly exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of properties.
I am purchasing a property in Truro. An unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender UBS be concerned?
Given that your lender is UBS your lawyer must follow the conveyancing instructions contained in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for UBS. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook stipulates minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to UBS where a lease fails to meet these specifications. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not isolated to Truro.
Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Truro. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?
Most banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Department at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are sorted out effectively and efficiently. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR with full details of your complaint.
How does conveyancing in Truro differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Truro approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Truro typically acquire the site, 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 conveyancers 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 used to new build conveyancing in Truro or who has acted in the same development.
