My mortgage broker has requested my Truro law firm’s panel member for the Nat West conveyancing panel. How do I find this out. I have e-mailed my local Truro branch but they cant find it on their system.
The sensible thing to do is ask for this information from your Truro conveyancer . Most Truro law firms will keep a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each lender.
A friend recommended that where I am buying in Truro I should ask my conveyancer to perform a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?
A search of this type is sometimes included in the estimate for your Truro conveyancing searches. It is a large document of about 40 pages, listing and setting out important information about Truro around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime statistics, Local Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information regarding Truro.
Just bought a detached house in Truro , how long should it take for the Land Registry to record my proprietorship? My Truro conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to check that my ownership is registered.
As far as conveyancing in Truro is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timescales can vary subject to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry have to notify any third persons or bodies. As of today approximately three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with within two weeks but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Historically registration occurs once the purchaser has moved in to the premises so post completion formalities is not usually primary concern but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Truro I like with a park and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Truro in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be an issue. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.
In my capacity as executor for the will of my grandfather I am disposing of a residence in Neath but I am based in Truro. My solicitor (approximately 235 miles from mehas requested that I execute a stat dec prior to completion. Can you recommend a conveyancing lawyer in Truro who can attest this legal document for me?
Technically speaking you are not likely to need to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Normally any notary public or solicitor will be fine regardless of whether they are Truro based
