I am buying a property mortgage free in Windmill Hill. I have been residing for the previous Seventeen years in Windmill Hill. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. As I know the road and vicinity very well should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?
Provided that you do not need a home loan, then the vast majority of the Windmill Hill conveyancing searches are optional. Your conveyancer will 'advise', no-doubt strongly, that you should have searches carried out, but he is duty bound to do this. Do bear in mind; if you are going to sell the house one day, it may be of relevance to your future purchaser what the searches reveal. On occasion houses with functional issues can still throw up negative search results. A competent conveyancing solicitor in Windmill Hill will be able to give you some helpful advice concerning this.
We're in Windmill Hill, First timers purchasing with a mortgage (lender is Yorkshire BS , and our solicitor is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no conveyancing practitioner should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.
I am expecting a DIP from UBS this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do UBS recommend any Windmill Hill solicitors on the UBS conveyancing panel, or is it better to find our own lawyer?
You will need to appoint Windmill Hill solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the UBS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and UBS through the process.
I can not fathom if my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Windmill Hill bank branch on various occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they would lend. My Windmill Hill conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their specific requirements. Who do I believe?
Provided that the property lawyer is on the bank approved list, she or he must comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook provisions for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
Planning on purchasing a apartment in Windmill Hill. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Windmill Hill conveyancing practitioner is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel.
