I am planning to move home in January. Does my conveyancing solicitor liaise with the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you put forward a removal company in Beaconsfield. Conveyancing solicitor was organised prior to coming across your website.

Last month we had a mortgage agreed in principle with Lloyds. Beaconsfield conveyancing lawyers are instructed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Lloyds?

There is no definitive answer here. Have Lloyds done the survey? Have you informed Lloyds as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Lloyds conveyancing panel? Sometimes it can take as long as six weeks for a mortgage offer to be issued.

I am buying a property in Beaconsfield. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender Clydesdale be concerned?

As you are obtaining a mortgage with Clydesdale your lawyer must check the conveyancing requirements set out in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Clydesdale. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook sets out minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to Clydesdale where a lease does not meet these provisions. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties nationwide and is not limited to Beaconsfield.

Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Beaconsfield.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £245,000 and found one near me in Beaconsfield I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Beaconsfield suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?

Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.

Can you provide any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Beaconsfield from the perspective of expediting the sale process?

  • Much of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Beaconsfield can be avoided where you get in touch lawyers the minute you market your property and ask them to put together the leasehold documentation needed by the buyers’ conveyancers.
  • Some Beaconsfield leases require Landlord’s consent to the sale and approval of the buyers. If this is the case, you should place the estate agents on notice to make sure that the purchasers put in hand bank and professional references. Any bank reference should make it clear that the buyer is financially capable of paying the yearly service charge and the actual amount of the service charge should be quoted in the bank’s letter. You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the actual amount of the service charge so that they can pass this information on to the purchasers or their lawyers. Many landlords or managing agents in Beaconsfield charge for supplying management packs for a leasehold premises. You or your lawyers should find out the actual amount of the charges. The management pack can be applied for on or before finding a buyer, thus reducing delays. The typical amount of time it takes to receive management information is three weeks. It is the most common cause of frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Beaconsfield. If you have the benefit of shareholding in the Management Company, you should ensure that you have the original share document. Organising a duplicate share certificate is often a lengthy process and slows down many a Beaconsfield home move. Where a duplicate share is required, do contact the company officers or managing agents (where relevant) for this at the earliest opportunity. In the event that you altered the property did you need the Landlord’s consent? In particular have you installed wooden flooring? Beaconsfield leases often stipulate that internal structural alterations or laying down wooden flooring require a licence issued by the Landlord approving such alterations. If you fail to have the consents in place do not communicate with the landlord without checking with your conveyancer first.

I own a split level flat in Beaconsfield, conveyancing formalities finalised 3 years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Corresponding properties in Beaconsfield with over 90 years remaining are worth £211,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 levied per year. The lease ends on 21st October 2088

With 67 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £10,500 and £12,000 plus legals.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure without more detailed due diligence. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other issues that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information before getting professional advice.

I have checked your search tool I can't find the lawyer I was hoping to instruct as being on the mortgage company conveyancing panel. My lawyer has said that they are on the bank approved panel. How can I be sure given that they are not listed on your directory?

Not all firms are yet listed on our lender panel search tool which is still relatively new. Law firms are listing on a daily basis and it is probably the case that your lawyer is on the lender conveyancing lawyer and you should probably take them at their word. Please do feel free to suggest that they completing their listing on our site as it would only cost them £1 a month to list themselves as being on the lender solicitor panel.
