Our mortgage lender is New Life Mortgages - what will we need to know?

A.

Buyers should know that a small number of lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean increased conveyancing costs for property purchasers. Homeward Legal will act for the majority of mortgage lenders.

Q.

The internet has plenty of books about how to do DIY conveyancing e.g. Conveyancing Handbook by Frances Silverman . Do I therefore need to instruct a solicitor in Harrold ?

A.

There are no reasons why a home seller cant adopt a DIY approach and conceivably engage in the legal work without the help of property solicitor in Harrold. The truth is however that a property lawyer takes care

of a huge number of assignments such as approving pre exchange checklists or interpreting the lease most of which need experience. Fundamentally do it yourself conveyancers are not covered by sufficient indemnity cover that firms and their solicitors always get.

Q.

Conveyancing searches are computed from archived information and when you consider climate change such as the fact that last year was second wettest year since records began, are they comfort enough to verify enough about the evolving local Harrold flood risk?

A.

The property lawyer in Harrold will carry out food risk searches if the first searches spots a significant risk of flooding in Harrold

In addition, you could get in touch with a next door neighbour for some more local history.

What can a Harrold property lawyer recommend if the home we are buying is inside a conservation area in Wellingborough and has unauthorised new windows fitted to it?

A.

Wellingborough planning authority search (LLC1 - Requisition for search and Official Certificate of Search) carried out by your Harrold conveyancing solicitor in the process of the conveyancing should confirm whether the property is inside a conservation area proof of Coal Authority consent for alterations will be requested.

Q.

Conveyancing solicitors in Harrold carry out varied searches when instructed to act for a home buyer - which particular searches?

A.

If buying and applying for a mortgage the lender insist that at least specific searches, including - Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search and Environmental, and occasionally area-specific searches, which might include HS50.

Q.

Would ordering a home buyers survey be sensible if we are purchasing property?

A.
