Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Wareham

Recently contacted my conveyancing solicitor in Wareham who acted for me 18 months ago requesting a conveyancing quote based on the same type of house sale & purchase (a leasehold property and a freehold premises) of almost identical values with a loan from Virgin Money. I am now being quoted twice the amount. Stick with what I know or do I seek out a cheaper internet firm of conveyancing solicitor?

The estimate does seem a little on the high side. If you you were to look around you might get the conveyancing a bit cheaper by say £100 plus VAT. That being said, if you were pleased with the legal work the firm gave you mightcome to rue opting for an an unknown lawyer. If is important to be sure the firm can represent Virgin Money. You can use our search tool to select a Wareham conveyancing firm on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel, which can often include conveyancing solicitors in Wareham.

All was ready to move into my new home in Wareham next Friday. My lawyer now wants me to supply her with proof of content and building insurance for the property as he says that he has to check this in his capacity as lawyer for the lender. What risks does the mortgage company expect the insurance to cover?

Any lawyer on acting for lenders would need to check that the following risks are covered fire; lightning; aircraft; explosion; earthquake; storm; flood; escape of water or oil; riot; malicious damage; theft or attempted theft; falling trees and branches and aerials; subsidence; heave;landslip;collision;accidental damage to underground services;professional fees, demolition and site clearance costs; and public liability to anyone else. There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook instructions. These obligations are not unique to conveyancing in Wareham.

It is is a decade since I purchased my house in Wareham. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been appointed on the sale but I can't track down the title deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?

Don’t worry too much. First the deeds may be retained by your lender or they could be archived with the lawyers who handled the purchase. Secondly in all probability the property will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers obtaining current official copies of the land registers. The vast majority of conveyancing in Wareham relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your home is not registered it is more of a problem but is not insurmountable.

The deeds to our home can not be found. The solicitors who did the conveyancing in Wareham 5 years ago no longer exist. What are my next steps?

Assuming you have a registered title the details of your proprietorship will be recorded by the Land Registry with a Title Number. It is easy to carry out a search at the Land Registry, identify your house and secure current copies of the property title for a small fee. Where the property is Leasehold then the Land Registry will in most cases retain a certified copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be ordered for twenty pounds.

I'm purchasing my first flat in Wareham with the aid of help to buy. The developers would not budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The house builders rep told me not disclose to my lawyer about this deal as it will put at risk my loan with the lender. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.
