We instructed a Battlesbridge based solicitor for my conveyancing in Battlesbridge yesterday. Upon checking the fine print I seewe are responsible for costs even if the dealfalls through. Would I be best advised to use a web based conveyancing company who offer no move no charge conveyancing in Battlesbridge?

Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Completion No Fee" is available then the fee levels will generally be uplifted to cover those cases that fail to complete. You should be mindful that these arrangements rarely cover disbursements by way of example Battlesbridge conveyancing search charges.

My Battlesbridge solicitor has identified an inconsistency when comparing the information in the home valuation report and what is revealed within the title deeds. My solicitor says that he needs to ensure that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my solicitor’s course or action correct?

Your property lawyer must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for both parties.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Can you provide any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Battlesbridge from the perspective of expediting the sale process?

  • A significant proportion of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Battlesbridge can be avoided where you instruct lawyers the minute you market your property and request that they start to put together the leasehold documentation which will be required by the buyers’ conveyancers.
  • You believe that you know the number of years remaining on your lease but you should double-check via your solicitors. A purchaser's conveyancer will not be happy to advise their client to to exchange contracts if the lease term is less than 75 years. It is therefore important at an as soon as possible that you identify whether the lease for your property needs extending. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your home on the market for sale. In the event that you altered the property did you need the Landlord’s consent? In particular have you laid down wooden flooring? Most leases in Battlesbridge state that internal structural changes or addition of wooden flooring calls for a licence from the Landlord consenting to such works. If you dont have the approvals in place you should not contact the landlord without checking with your solicitor in the first instance. If you have the benefit of shareholding in the freehold, you should ensure that you have the original share certificate. Obtaining a duplicate share certificate is often a time consuming process and delays many a Battlesbridge home move. Where a duplicate share certificate is necessary, you should approach the company director and secretary or managing agents (where relevant) for this sooner rather than later.

I bought a 1 bedroom flat in Battlesbridge, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Corresponding properties in Battlesbridge with a long lease are worth £201,000. The ground rent is £45 charged once a year. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2086

With just 65 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £13,300 and £15,400 as well as professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more comprehensive investigations. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information without first getting professional advice.

We are first time buyers just having agreed a price on a property in Battlesbridge, and are now looking to get solicitors lined up. We have used the various rating based websites and the quotes are from all over the the UK. Is it necessary to have a Battlesbridge conveyancing practitioner local to your potential house? I am happy to do everything over the internet, but I assume at some point we will need to visit the conveyancing practitioner's office to sign documents?

Generally there is no requirement to attend the office of your property lawyer, they can post any relevant contracts to you, which you can sign and return. Many buyers and sellers choose to use a locally based solicitor, but it is not a prerequisite for conveyancing in Battlesbridge.
