My mortgage broker requires my Warkworth law firm’s panel reference for the Nationwide conveyancing panel. Can you suggest how I find this out. I have e-mailed my local Warkworth branch but they have not got back to me yet.
The sensible thing to do is ask for this information from your Warkworth conveyancing practitioner . Most Warkworth conveyancing practices will keep a file or database of lender panel information which would include, if applicable, their conveyancing panel details for each mortgage company.
Having sold my house in Warkworth last March but my buyer keeps whats apping me to moan that his solicitor needs to hear from mine. What should my lawyer have done now that I have sold?
Following your sale your lawyer should forward the transfer documentation and all supplemental paperwork to the buyer’s conveyancer. Where appropriate, your conveyancer must also confirm that the legal charge in favour of the lender has been redeemed to the purchasers solicitors. There is unlikely to be post completion tasks peculiar conveyancing in Warkworth.
We are planning on selling our home in Warkworth and according to the buyers it appears that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any high street Warkworth conveyancer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the buyers used a web based conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Warkworth. We have lived in Warkworth for many years we know that this is a non issue. Do we get in touch with our local Authority to seek clarification that the buyers are looking for.
It sounds as though you may have a conveyancing firm already. What do they say? You must enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £235,500 and found one close by in Warkworth I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, however it's only got 51 years on the lease. There is not much else in Warkworth in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
