Just bought a terraced house in Wolsingham , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register my title? My Wolsingham conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to check that my name is recorded.
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Wolsingham registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can vary subject to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any interested persons or bodies. As of today in the region of three quarters of such applications are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Historically registration is effected once the purchaser has moved in to the premises therefore an expedited registration is not usually top priority yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
How does conveyancing in Wolsingham differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Wolsingham approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because developers in Wolsingham tend to purchase the site, 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Wolsingham or who has acted in the same development.
I am looking for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one close by in Wolsingham I like with a park and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Wolsingham in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
If you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
Do I stop my mortgage payments with Co-operative as soon as a completion date for my home sale in Wolsingham has been agreed?
No, you must maintain meeting any mortgage payments to Co-operative until the mortgage is repaid from the proceeds of sale as part of your Wolsingham conveyancing.
