The range of Acklam conveyancing searches depends primarily on the premises, the location, the probability of any of these risks, your familiarity of the region and risks, your overall appetite to risk. What is important is that you adequately appreciate what information the searches could supply. You may then make a decision if you consider that you need that search.

Can you help - my lawyer says that flying freehold insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Acklam?

The appropriate level of flying freehold indemnity insurance depends on who your lender is. It would differ for example between Lloyds TSB Bank and Chelsea Building Society. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.

I am buying a property in Acklam. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. HSBC have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

As you are obtaining a mortgage with HSBC your lawyer must comply with the formal requirements outlined in Section two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for HSBC. The CML Handbook sets out minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to HSBC where a lease fails to comply with these conditions. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not isolated to Acklam.

I have paid off my mortgage with Leeds Building Society. I assume I don't need a Acklam property lawyer on the Leeds Building Society panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your Leeds Building Society mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Leeds Building Society mortgage from the register. Leeds Building Society, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Leeds Building Society has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Leeds Building Society has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Leeds Building Society mortgage has been paid off.

We expect to complete the sale of our £450,000 flat in Acklam next week. The landlords agents has quoted £420 for Certificate of Compliance, building insurance schedule and previous years service charge statements. Is the landlord entitled to charge such fees for a flat conveyance in Acklam?

Acklam conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes often involves the buyer’s lawyer submitting enquiries for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is not legally bound to answer these enquiries the majority will be willing to do so. They may invoice a reasonable charge for responding to enquiries or supplying documentation. There is no upper cap for such fees. The average fee for the paperwork that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some transactions it is in excess of £800. The administration charge levied by the landlord must be accompanied by a synopsis of rights and obligations in relation to administration charges, otherwise the invoice is not strictly payable. Reality however dictates that one has little choice but to pay whatever is requested of you if you want to exchange contracts with the buyer.
