Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Ashby de la Zouch

We are planning to acquire a house and need a conveyancing solicitor in Ashby de la Zouch who is on the RBS conveyancing panel. Could you point me in the right direction as regards a solicitor?

Our service is limited to being a directory service for firms who wish to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for RBS . We don't recommend any particular firms conducting conveyancing in Ashby de la Zouch.

I have an AIP. The bank mentioned the loan came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to instruct their panel lawyer as I would prefer to appoint a Ashby de la Zouch based conveyancing firm?

You should check but the the probability is that give you one of their panel solicitors if you accept the "fee-free" deal. Speak to the lender to explore if they make available a cash alternative. In the past a few mortgage companies offered a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case you could put that amount towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor in Ashby de la Zouch.

A friend pointed out to me me that in purchasing a property in Ashby de la Zouch there may be a number of restrictions preventing external changes to the property. Is this right?

There are a number of properties in Ashby de la Zouch which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to carry out external alterations. Part of the conveyancing in Ashby de la Zouch should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.

Can you help - my lawyer says that lack of building regulations insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Ashby de la Zouch?

The appropriate level of lack of building regulations indemnity insurance depends on your lender. It would differ for example between Accord Mortgages Ltd and The Royal Bank of Scotland. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to borrowers take out such insurances.

I've read lots of mortgage guides, I note that they all recommend that you should get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Ashby de la Zouch solicitor - who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?

Clydesdale will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Clydesdale will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Ashby de la Zouch surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

I have been advised by a number of selling agents in Ashby de la Zouch to find a solicitor on your site. Is there a financial inducement for Estate Agents to market your services ahead of a competitor’s?

We don’t give any referral fee for directing people our way. We thought it would be too underhand to pay a commission as a client could think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

I am using a search engine for the term on line conveyancing in Ashby de la Zouch it brings up numerous property lawyersin the area. With so much choice what is the best way to find the suitable property lawyer for my move?

The best way of seeking the right conveyancer is through a trusted referral, so enquire of friends and family who have acquired a property in Ashby de la Zouch or a respected estate agent or mortgage broker. Costs for conveyancing in Ashby de la Zouch vary, so it's a good idea to obtain at least four quotes from different property lawyers. Make sure that you clarify that the charges are assured not to increase.

What are your top tips when it comes to choosing a Ashby de la Zouch conveyancing practice to carry out our lease extension conveyancing?

When appointing a solicitor for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Ashby de la Zouch conveyancing firm) it is essential that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We recommend that you talk with two or three firms including non Ashby de la Zouch conveyancing practices before you instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then so much the better. The following questions might be useful:

    What are the costs for lease extension conveyancing?

I inherited a split level flat in Ashby de la Zouch, conveyancing having been completed in 2008. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Corresponding flats in Ashby de la Zouch with a long lease are worth £175,000. The ground rent is £65 charged once a year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2079

With just 58 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £23,800 and £27,400 as well as legals.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
