Can you help? My West Thurrock lawyer is assuring me that she is duty bound toconduct West Thurrock conveyancing searches resulting from the fact thatthe firm are on the Nat Westapproved lawyer panel. These West Thurrock searches cost a lot of money can this be avoided?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are taking a mortgage with a bank your property lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your solicitor would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to follow the CML Handbook requirements . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out West Thurrock conveyancing searches.
I have been told that property searches are the number one cause of obstruction in West Thurrock house deals. Is that correct?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) published findings of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not feature amongst the common causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Local searches are not likely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in West Thurrock.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly identified as part of conveyancing in West Thurrock?
Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in West Thurrock. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
I opted to have a survey completed on a property in West Thurrock before appointing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. Our surveyor advised that some banks may not give a loan on a flying freehold house.
