Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Ambleside

I am considering applying for a Yorkshire BS mortgage for purchase of a new build (under development) in Ambleside with 70% LTV. Is it compulsory to choose a solicitor on the conveyancing panel for Yorkshire BS ?

There is nothing to stop you using your solicitor, but Yorkshire BS will insist on their interests being represented by a firm on their conveyancing panel. There is much more potential for delays and confusion with two solicitors involved, and it will undoubtedly be more expensive too.

Forgive me if this question is silly but I am wet behind the ears as FTB of a two bedroom flat in Ambleside. Do I pick up the keys to the property on completion from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will use a local conveyancing solicitor in Ambleside?

On the day of completion you do not need to attend the conveyancers office in Ambleside. Your solicitors will transfer the completion advance to the seller's conveyancers, and once they have received this, you will be called to collect the keys from the property Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.

All being well we will complete the disposal of our £475,000 maisonette in Ambleside on Wednesday in a week. The freeholder has quoted £312 for Landlord’s certificate, building insurance schedule and 3 years statements of service charge. Is the landlord entitled to charge such fees for a leasehold conveyance in Ambleside?

Ambleside conveyancing on leasehold apartments often requires the buyer’s lawyer sending enquiries for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is not legally bound to address such questions most will be content to do so. They may levy a reasonable administration fee for responding to enquiries or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average costs for the paperwork that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some cases it is in excess of £800. The management information fee levied by the landlord must be accompanied by a synopsis of entitlements and obligations in respect of administration charges, otherwise the invoice is technically not due. Reality however dictates that you have no choice but to pay whatever is requested of you if you want to sell the property.
