Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Abridge costs more?

Abridge leasehold properties involve far more paperwork than a freehold purchase, and therefore takes more time to examine and advise upon.Conveyancing will involve the lease having to be checked which is usually a lengthy document, queries raised to ensure that the covenants and conditions have been observed. If it is a flat there will be a management company in existence and the accounts of this will need to be checked and enquiries raised to ensure it is operating efficiently and that all monies due have been paid by the Seller to the company and if not ensuring that money is paid up to date or the appropriate undertakings obtained.

What does a local search reveal about the house my wife and I buying in Abridge?

It has been five months since my purchase conveyancing in Abridge completed. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £160,000. 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 residence 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.

I decided to have a survey completed on a property in Abridge ahead of appointing conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. Our surveyor has said that some mortgage companies will refuse to issue a loan on such a home.

It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different requirements for example to Halifax. Should you wish to call us we can check via the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Abridge. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

As is the case with many service providers, often input from connections can be extremely useful or valuable. But there are numerous parties with a keen interest in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, financial adviser and mortgage companies may recommend solicitors to use. On occasion the conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but sometimes there might be a financial incentive behind the endorsement. You are at liberty to select your own conveyancer. You need to be aware that some banks specify a panel list of conveyancers you are obliged to use for the lender related work in your conveyancing.

I need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor for remortgage conveyancing in Abridge. I have land on a web site which looks to be the ideal solution If there is a chance to get all the legals done via web that would be ideal. Do I need to be wary? What should out be looking out for?
