Much to our surprise we have been told by our estate agent that my Wargrave solicitor is not on the mortgage company Conveyancing panel. What can I do to be certain whether this is indeed the case?
The best course of action for you to take is to contact your Wargrave lawyer directly. You lawyer should inform you what has happened. If they are not on the panel they may be able to suggest a Wargrave conveyancing firm that is on the approved list of lawyers for your bank.
My wife and I are only a couple days away from an exchange on a flat in Wargrave and my parents have sent the exchange deposit to my conveyancer. I am now advised that as the deposit has been received from someone other than me my property lawyer needs to make a notification to my bank. I am advised that, in also acting for the lender he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is not just from me. I advised the lender regarding my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really appropriate for this now to hold matters up?
Your solicitor is obliged to check with the bank to make sure that they understand that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own resources. The solicitor can only reveal this to your mortgage company if you permit them to, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.
Is there a reason why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Wargrave costs more?
In summary, leasehold conveyancing in Wargrave and elsewhere usually necessitates more work compared to freehold transactions. This includes lease investigation, liaising with the landlord about serving required notices, securing up-to-date service charge and management information, obtaining the landlord’s consents and reviewing management accounts. The obligations on both the landlord and the tenant in the lease need to be studied by the buyer’s conveyancing team and read from beginning to end – regardless of the fact the lease has passed through many different property solicitors hands since it was first entered into.
I have todaybeen informed that Action Conveyancing have closed. They conducted my conveyancing in Wargrave for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 18 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?
