Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Andover

Would the conveyancing solicitors that you recommend perform conveyancing in Andover by way of an attended exchange?

There are a few conveyancing specialists who can conduct attended exchanges. Please contact us to obtain a costs illustration and details as to availability.

This question may be naive but I am unexperienced as a first time buyer of a two bedroom flat in Andover. Do I receive the keys to the house on completion from my conveyancer? If so, I will use a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Andover?

On the day of completion you do not need to attend the conveyancers office in Andover. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the purchase money to the vendor’s conveyancers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you should be called to collect the keys from the selling Agents and move into your new home. This tends to happen between 1 and 3pm.

Is there a list of Skipton panel solicitors in Andover on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?

Unfortunately not yet. There is no such directory service on the Council of Mortgage Lenders or Building Society Association sites. Very few mortgage companies make their panel listings available online. If you are seeking to appoint a Andover lawyer on the Skipton please use our tool.

Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Kent Reliance. Andover conveyancing lawyers were selected. How long does it take for Kent Reliance to send the offer to the lawyer?

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

I completed on my house on 6 August and my personal details is yet to be on the land registry website. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Andover advises it will be formalised in a couple of weeks. Are titles in Andover particularly slow to register?

As far as conveyancing in Andover registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry need to notify any other parties. At present approximately three quarters of submission are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Historically registration takes place once the new owner has moved in to the premises so an expedited registration is not typically top priority yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

I am buying a new build apartment in Andover. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.

Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Andover

    Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Please confirm the Lease plans are architect prepared. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Will control of the Management Company (if any) be handed over to purchasers on completion of the last sale or earlier?

Given that I will soon spend over three hundred thousand on a two bedroom apartment in Andover I wish to have a conversation with the conveyancer about mytransaction before instructing the firm. Can this be arranged?

We could not agree more - we would be happy to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you first talking to the conveyancer due to be doing your property ownership legalities in Andover.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is an important person, not a case reference. The law firms that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are quoted for residential conveyancing in Andover should be the figure that you end up paying.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my garden flat in Andover. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, however I have just had a yearly maintenance charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?

It best that you clear the maintenance contribution as you normally would given that all ground rent and maintenance payments should be allotted on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.

I invested in buying a ground floor flat in Andover, conveyancing having been completed in 2011. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Comparable flats in Andover with over 90 years remaining are worth £201,000. The ground rent is £45 charged once a year. The lease runs out on 21st October 2086

With just 64 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £15,200 and £17,600 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
