Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Atherton

All was ready to complete my purchase in Atherton next Monday. My lawyer now wants me to supply her with evidence of content and building insurance for the property as he says that he has to check this in his capacity as lawyer for the lender. What does the insurance need to cover?

Any lawyer on acting for banks would need to check that the following risks are covered fire; lightning; aircraft; explosion; earthquake; storm; flood; escape of water or oil; riot; malicious damage; theft or attempted theft; falling trees and branches and aerials; subsidence; heave;landslip;collision;accidental damage to underground services;professional fees, demolition and site clearance costs; and public liability to anyone else. There are some other issues such as the level of excess that are set out in a lender’s Part 2 requirements. These requirements are not specific to conveyancing in Atherton.

The Atherton conveyancing lawyers that just started acting on my purchase in Atherton have suddenly shut down. I chose them because I needed a firm on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel and my family Atherton lawyer was not. I wrote them a cheque for £250 in advance. What do I do now?

Assuming that you have an Estate Agent in the equation then let them know immediately so that they advise the vendors that there may be a slight delay due to reasons beyond your control. Hopefully they will be sympathetic and urge their lawyer to send a new set of papers to your new solicitors. You should appoint new lawyers that are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel and notify the lender. If you have paid over any money, it will hopefully be held by the SRA as money in an intervened firm's bank accounts is transferred to the SRA. Then, the SRA or the intervention agent looks at the intervened firm's accounts to work out who the money belongs to. To claim your money you will need to contact the SRA. If the SRA cannot return money you are owed from the firm's bank accounts, or if they can only return part of the money, you can apply to the Compensation Fund for a grant. Your new lawyers should be in a position to help.

In relation to leasehold conveyancing in Atherton what are the most frequent lease problems?

There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Atherton. Most leases are drafted differently and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain clauses are erroneous. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:

    Insurance obligations

You will have a problem when selling your property if you have a defective lease primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Santander, Bank of Scotland, and TSB all have very detailed conveyancing instructions when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is problematic they may refuse to provide security, obliging the purchaser to withdraw.

Atherton Conveyancing for Leasehold Flats - Examples of Questions you should consider Prior to Purchasing

    How many years remain on the lease? Where a Atherton lease has fewer than eighty years it will impact the value of the apartment. It is worth checking with your mortgage company that they are happy with the length of the lease. Leases with less than 80 years remaining means that you will almost definitely need a lease extension at some point and you need to have some idea of how much this would cost. Remember, in most cases you will need to own the residence for a couple of years before you are eligible to extend the lease. Are there any major works on the horizon that will likely add a premium to the service costs?
