We selected a Abergele based solicitor for my conveyancing in Abergele last week. After carefully reading the official terms of business it is apparent thatI am liable for costs even where the transaction does not complete. Should I ditch them and use a web based lawyer offering no move no charge conveyancing in Abergele?
It is usually a trade off in that if "No Completion No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will generally be more expensive to counteract the transactions that do not proceed. Also remember that these schemes generally do not cover expenditure by way of example Abergele conveyancing search charges.
My husband and I are refinancing our apartment in Abergele with HSBC. We have a son 19 who lives with us. Our solicitor has asked us to disclose any adults other than ourselves who reside at the property. Our lawyer has now e-mailed a document for our son to sign, giving up any rights in the event that the apartment is repossessed. I have a couple of concerns (1) Is this document specific to the HSBC conveyancing panel as he never had to sign this form when we purchased 5 years ago (2) Does our son by signing this extinguish his entitlement to inherit the property?
First, rest assured that your HSBC conveyancing panel solicitor is doing the right thing as it is established procedure for any occupier who is aged 17 or over to sign the necessary Consent Form, which is purely to state that any rights he has in the property are postponed and secondary to HSBC. This is solely used to protect HSBC if the property were re-possessed so that in such circumstances, your son would be legally obliged to leave. It does not impact your son’s right to inherit the apartment. Please note that if your son were to inherit and the mortgage in favour of HSBC had not been discharged, he would be liable to take over the loan or pay it off, but other than that, there is nothing stopping him from keeping the property in accordance with your will or the rules of intestacy.

If all goes to plan we aim to complete our sale of a £225,000 maisonette in Abergele next Friday. The management company has quoted £312 for Landlord’s certificate, insurance certificate and previous years service charge statements. Is the landlord entitled to charge exorbitant fees for a leasehold conveyance in Abergele?
Abergele conveyancing on leasehold flats normally involves the purchaser’s conveyancer submitting questions for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is under no legal obligation to answer these enquiries the majority will be content to do so. They are at liberty to charge a reasonable administration fee for answering enquiries or supplying documentation. There is no upper cap for such fees. The average fee for the paperwork that you are referring to is £350, in some transactions it is above £800. The administration charge demanded by the landlord must be sent together with a summary of entitlements and obligations in relation to administration fees, otherwise the invoice is technically not due. In reality one has little choice but to pay whatever is requested of you if you want to exchange contracts with the buyer.
I inherited a garden flat in Abergele, conveyancing was carried out December 2009. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Comparable properties in Abergele with over 90 years remaining are worth £190,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 levied per year. The lease expires on 21st October 2083
With 62 years left to run the likely cost is going to span between £17,100 and £19,800 as well as professional fees.
The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
