Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Alderley Edge

I selected a high street solicitor for my conveyancing in Alderley Edge yesterday. Looking through the Terms it is apparent thatwe are liable for costs even if the dealdoes not go ahead. Should I ditch them and appoint an internet conveyancing brokerage promising no completion no charge conveyancing in Alderley Edge?

Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is available then the conveyancing charges will tend to be be uplifted to cover those transactions that do not go ahead. Please beware that these schemes tend not to protect you from expenses for instance Alderley Edge conveyancing search expenses.

I'm purchasing a new build house in Alderley Edge with a loan from Clydesdale. The developers would not reduce the price so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep advised me not disclose to my conveyancer about this deal as it may impact my loan with the bank. Should I keep quiet?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

In what way does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my commercial offices in Alderley Edge and how can you help?

There are certain specified grounds that a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complicated. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing firms who use the act for protection and handle your commercial conveyancing in Alderley Edge

What are your top tips when it comes to finding a Alderley Edge conveyancing firm to deal with our lease extension?

When appointing a property lawyer for lease extension works (regardless if they are a Alderley Edge conveyancing practice) it is most important that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of work. We advise that you make enquires with two or three firms including non Alderley Edge conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions might be helpful:

    How experienced is the practice with lease extension legislation? If the firm is not ALEP accredited then why not?

I own a 2 bed flat in Alderley Edge, conveyancing having been completed in 2008. 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? Corresponding properties in Alderley Edge with an extended lease are worth £190,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 per annum. The lease ends on 21st October 2085

With only 62 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £17,100 and £19,800 plus legals.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other concerns that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.

We have an offer in principle from Leeds Building Society who have advised we could borrow up to £218k. When do I need to instruct a practitioner for conveyancing? Alderley Edge is where we are buying.

You can instruct a lawyer now requesting that they create a file on your behalf. This will enable: 1) the estate agent to send out the Sales Memo to all parties 2) the seller’s property lawyer to submit the draft paperwork. That being said, do not ask your conveyancer to start searches until you have your valuation report from Leeds Building Society and you are content to proceed.
