Reasons to use our Adlington conveyancing solicitors

  • 1 Using a local Solicitor generally means that you will receive a more personalised service. Sometimes when dealing with a large conveyancing firm, you tend to be looked after by a team of people who who progress matters by determining whether the ‘computers says no’.

  • 3 There is a strong possibility the the conveyancers for the other party are located in Adlington - if so sets of solicitors are likely to be familiar
  • 4 No matter what any other solicitors may claim it just might be important to pop into your conveyancer to execute legal papers. There are enough parties engaged in a house sale without needing to include the postman into the mix.
  • 5 Solicitor conveyancing firms have excellent personal connections with Adlington estate agents and work very closely with them and local surveyors so as to ensure transactions proceed expeditiously.

I can see plenty of information on this site concerning conveyancing in Adlington but what is your top tip for appointing the right conveyancer in Adlington

We would encourage you not to go for the cheapest Adlington conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in advance.

I have paid off my mortgage with UBS. I assume I don't need a Adlington solicitor on the UBS panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your UBS 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 UBS mortgage from the register. UBS, 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 UBS has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. UBS has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your UBS mortgage has been paid off.

Completion of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Adlington. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I would like to complain about the lender. How do I make a complaint?

All banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office. We understand that complaints to a lender are sorted out effectively and efficiently. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR with full details of your complaint.

My wife and I own a renovated Edwardian house in Adlington. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Accord Mortgages Ltd. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same address. Is it worth asking Accord Mortgages Ltd to clarify?

You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Adlington and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they remortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also check the position with the conveyancing practitioner who conducted the conveyancing.

I have just appointed agents to market my garden flat in Adlington. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, but I have just had a half-yearly service charge invoice – what should I do?

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should discharge the maintenance contribution as usual because all ground rent and service payments should be allotted on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.

I purchased a split level flat in Adlington, conveyancing formalities finalised 3 years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Comparable properties in Adlington with a long lease are worth £216,000. The ground rent is £50 invoiced every year. The lease ends on 21st October 2090

With 69 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £9,500 and £11,000 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.
