Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Allenton

Is it necessary during the course of the conveyancing process to attend the offices of the solicitor to sign the mortgage deed? If so, I will instruct a firm who offer conveyancing in Allenton so that I can attend their offices when needed.

Most approved lawyers for lenders conduct all of the work through Royal Mail, e-mail or over the phone. This enables them to undertake the legal work for your home move no matter where you live in the country. However you can see if you can still book an appointment to visit conveyancing lawyer if just in case this is required.

is it true that all Allenton solicitor practices on the Skipton conveyancing panel are overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?

As solicitors, in order to be on the Skipton conveyancing panel they would need to be governed by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Some banks do list licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such organisation would be governed by the Council of Licensed Conveyancers.

Two weeks ago we had a mortgage agreed in principle with UBS. Allenton conveyancing lawyers have been chosen. How long does it take for UBS to send the offer to the conveyancing practitioner?

There is no definitive answer here. Have UBS conducted the survey? Have you informed UBS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the UBS conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in February 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Santander are being problematic. The Allenton solicitor who is on the Santander conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Santander are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Santander have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Santander have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Santander may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

I am buying my first flat in Allenton with the aid of help to buy. The developers refused to reduce the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent told me not to tell my conveyancer about this deal as it will adversely affect my mortgage with The Royal Bank of Scotland. Is this normal?.

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.

I decided to have a survey done on a property in Allenton in advance of appointing lawyers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. My surveyor has said that some banks tend not grant a mortgage on a flying freehold property.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Bank of Scotland has different instructions for example to Birmingham Midshires. If you contact us we can check with the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Allenton. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

I am using a search engine for the term cheap conveyancing in Allenton it shows results of many property lawyersin the vicinity. How do I determine which is the right solicitor for the sale of my house?

The ideal method of finding the right conveyancer is via personal referral, so ask friends and those you trust who have bought a property in Allenton or a local estate agent or mortgage broker. Costs for conveyancing in Allenton differ, so it's a good idea to obtain at least three fee estimates from varying types of solicitors. Dont forget to clarify that the charges are assured not to escalate.

I own a leasehold flat in Allenton. Conveyancing and The Royal Bank of Scotland mortgage organised. A letter has just been received from someone saying they have taken over the reversionary interest in the property. It included a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1997. The conveyancing practitioner in Allenton who acted for me is not around. Do I pay?

First make enquiries of HMLR to be sure that this person is indeed the new freeholder. It is not necessary to instruct a Allenton conveyancing practitioner to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for £3. Rest assured that in any event, even if this is the rightful freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.

I own a 2 bed flat in Allenton, conveyancing was carried out half a dozen years ago. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Corresponding flats in Allenton with an extended lease are worth £191,000. The ground rent is £55 charged once a year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2075

With 53 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to span between £27,600 and £31,800 as well as costs.

The figure that we have given is 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 a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
