I have given 8 weeks notice to my current landlord and must be out of my let out flat in Almondsbury by 9/7/2021. Conveyancing for my house purchase is progressing. Is it possible to complete in 4 weeks as don't want to have to find temporary accommodation?

Generally one should not serve notice for your tenancy until you have exchanged. If you have not previously done so, update to your lawyer and request that they cajole the owners side, try to an agreed time frame that all parties will look to achieve

We are planning to move house in July. Will my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you put forward a removal company in Almondsbury. Conveyancing solicitor was organised prior to coming across this website.

On the day of completion you can pick up the house keys from your estate agent but this can only be done when the sellers lawyers confirm to the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be collected. You should inform the removal men that you are ready to move in. We are not in a position to suggest a particular removal company but can help you locate a conveyancing in Almondsbury or a firm with expertise in conveyancing in Almondsbury.

I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in June 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Nottingham are being problematic. The Almondsbury solicitor who is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Nottingham are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Nottingham have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Nottingham have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Nottingham 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.

My offer was accepted on an apartment in Almondsbury on 18/3/2021, valuation was booked five days after, received a clean bill of health. Conveyancer retained, so all that was missing was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Lloyds and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. Are Lloyds entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Lloyds to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

How does conveyancing in Almondsbury differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Almondsbury come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because house builders in Almondsbury tend to buy the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Almondsbury or who has acted in the same development.

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £305k and found one close by in Almondsbury I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Almondsbury suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Almondsbury. Before I get started I would like to find out the number of years remaining on the lease.

If the lease is registered - and almost all are in Almondsbury - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I invested in buying a 2 bed flat in Almondsbury, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Corresponding properties in Almondsbury with a long lease are worth £185,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £65 invoiced annually. The lease runs out on 21st October 2081

You have 60 years unexpired the likely cost is going to be between £20,000 and £23,000 plus legals.

The figure above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
