Completed the sale of my flat in Wisbech last February but my buyer keeps e-mailing daily to say their lawyer needs to hear from mine. What are the post completion sale formalities following completion?

If applicable, your conveyancer should also send confirmation that the home loan has been repaid to the purchasers lawyers. There are no post completion tasks unique to conveyancing in Wisbech.

It is unclear whether my bank requires a lease extension. I have called my Wisbech building society branch on numerous occasions and was told it does not impact the mortgage offer and they will lend. My Wisbech conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called to say that they would not lend in accordance with their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?

The conveyancing practitioner must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two specifications for your 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 bank to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

Leeds Building Society will appoint a valuer who will get in touch with the estate agent or owners to book an appointment.

It has been 3 months following my purchase conveyancing in Wisbech concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

How does conveyancing in Wisbech differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Wisbech contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because house builders in Wisbech tend to acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Wisbech or who has acted in the same development.
