We are buying a flat in Walkington. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a conveyancer? On the day of competition we have to put money into their account. What protection do we have from them run away with our money?
Be assured that all money in a Solicitors client account is 100% safe, and even if your Solicitor ran off with it, the Law Society would reimburse you fully.
I'm the sole beneficiary of my late father’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Walkington. The Walkington property was put into my name in June. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership may be treated the same way as though I had purchased the property in June. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?
The CML handbook mandates solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be caught by that. How sensible a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the bank as this requirement is chiefly there to identify subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of property.
My offer on a detached house in Walkington has been accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have offered on somewhere, but it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other properties in the pipeline. I have selected a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Walkington. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with Yorkshire BS going?
It is understandable to have concerns where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (mortgage application is approx £1k, then valuation, Walkington conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you must check that your property lawyer is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. As to the subsequent stages this very much depends on the specifics of your case, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market many home buyers would apply for the mortgage with Yorkshire BS and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they request their lawyer to proceed with the conveyancing in Walkington.
I require fast conveyancing in Walkington as I have an ultimatum to sign on the dotted line within 4 weeks. Fortunately I do not require a mortgage. Is it possible to escape the need for conveyancing searches to save money and time?
If.Given you are are a mortgage free purchaser you are at liberty not to have searches carried out although no conveyancer would suggest that you don't. With plenty of history conveyancing in Walkington the following are examples of what can be revealed and therefore impact market value: Refused Planning Applications, Outstanding Charges, Overdue Grants, Railway Schemes,...
I am looking for a flat up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Walkington I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Walkington suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
