Reasons to use our Aldershot conveyancing solicitors

Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Aldershot

All was ready to complete my purchase in Aldershot next Monday. I have now been asked to send a copy of my building insurance schedule by my solicitor as as she informs me that she is duty bound to validate that it is in order for the bank. What risks does the lender expect the insurance to cover?

Any lawyer on acting for banks would need to check that the following risks are covered fire; lightning; aircraft; explosion; earthquake; storm; flood; escape of water or oil; riot; malicious damage; theft or attempted theft; falling trees and branches and aerials; subsidence; heave;landslip;collision;accidental damage to underground services;professional fees, demolition and site clearance costs; and public liability to anyone else. There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s Part 2 instructions. These requirements are not specific to conveyancing in Aldershot.

Will lawyers ask for money up-front when it comes to conveyancing in Aldershot?

Where you are retaining lawyers for conveyancing in Aldershot your solicitor will request that you put them with monies to cover the search fees. Generally this is asked for to cover the fees of the Local Authority Search. If any deposit is payable against the total price then this will be asked for shortly ahead of contracts are exchanged. Any further balance that is needed will be payable a couple of days prior to the completion date.

When it comes to mortgage companies such as Nationwide, do Aldershot property lawyers incur an annual charge to be on the conveyancing panel?

We are unaware of any mortgage company fees to register on their panel, although some do charge an administration fee to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel submission.

Completion of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Aldershot. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?

Most lenders 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 very quickly. 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 who will take matters further.

Coventry BS have agreed my mortgage in principle, my offer on a flat in Aldershot has been agreed to, what happens next?

The estate agent will need to know who your solicitors are (make sure the lawyers are on the lender’s approved list). Call up Coventry BS or the financial adviser and finalise any outstanding documentation. Coventry BS will sellect a valuer who will get in contact with the estate agent or seller to book a slot for the valuation to occur. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes on average a fortnight to receive the mortgage offer. Coventry BS will send the offer to you and your lawyers. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Aldershot.

Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Aldershot ahead of appointing lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. Our surveyor has said that some banks may not give a loan on this type of premises.

It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different requirements for example to Halifax. If you contact us we can look into this further via the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Aldershot. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Aldershot to see if the conveyancing will be more expensive.

Should I appoint a Aldershot conveyancing lawyer who is local to the property I am purchasing? I have an old university friend who can execute the conveyancing however her office is 400kilometers drive away.

The primary upside of using a high street Aldershot conveyancing firm is that you can pop in to execute paperwork, present your ID and pester them if necessary. They will also have local intelligence which is a bonus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If other friends have used your friend and the majority were impressed that must trump using an unfamiliar Aldershot conveyancing lawyer just because they are Aldershot based.

Expecting to complete next month on a studio apartment in Aldershot. Conveyancing lawyers inform me that they will have a report out to me within the next couple of days. Are there areas in the report that I should be focusing on?

The report on title for your leasehold conveyancing in Aldershot should include some of the following:

    What the implications are if you breach a clause of your lease? Whether the landlord has obligations to ensure rights of quiet enjoyment over your property and do you know what it means in practice? Whether your lease provides for a reserve fund? Information concerning the obligations in the lease to pay service charges - in relation to the building, and the more general rights a lessee has Defining your legal entitlements in relation to common areas in the building.For example, does the lease include a right of way over a path or staircase?
For details of the information to be included in your report on your leasehold property in Aldershot please enquire of your solicitor in advance of your conveyancing in Aldershot.

I inherited a split level flat in Aldershot, conveyancing was carried out 4 years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Corresponding flats in Aldershot with a long lease are worth £197,000. The ground rent is £55 yearly. The lease terminates on 21st October 2077

With 55 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £31,400 and £36,200 as well as legals.

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
