Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bebington

We have rather assertive sellers who has suggested a exclusivity agreement with a down payment two thousand pounds. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?

This form of contract isn't frequently used in Bebington, conveyancers will often direct clients away from them as they divert attention from the main conveyancing focus and if you end up losing your deposit then the lawyer at best left with an upset client and at worst a litigious one. Furthermore, there is no assurance that just because the vendor has executed an exclusivity contract they will complete the sale with you. They may be in contravention of the contract if they receive a large enough incentive to do so because an aggrieved purchaser with the benefit of a lockout agreement will still have to show losses as a consequence of the breach and this may not equalise the financial upside that your seller may secure by breaching the agreement, however morally reprehensible that may be.

Can you explain why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Bebington costs more?

The conveyancing fees for a leasehold premises in Bebington is frequently greater than on a freehold residence. This is due to the additional work required in dealing with the freeholder and management company to obtain evidence concerning whether the rent and maintenance charges have been discharged and whether there are any large sums expected to be spent in the foreseeable future on repairs or maintenance of the building.

They are both required to execute Bebington conveyancing to the same quality and guidelines so you can be safe in the knowledge that your conveyancing will be properly administered and that the necessary steps should be correctly adhered to.

I have a mortgage with UBS for my property in Bebington. Conveyancing was finalised 12 months ago. In the event that I decide to rent out my property and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform UBS?

Your original mortgage agreement with UBS will provide that you need their approval before letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of UBS’s mortgage conditions. It may be that UBS will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact UBS directly. You need not do this via a UBS conveyancing panel lawyer.

Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Bebington. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?

Almost all lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Team at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are sorted out effectively and efficiently. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one close by in Bebington I like with open areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Bebington suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

What are your top tips when it comes to finding a Bebington conveyancing firm to deal with our lease extension?

If you are instructing a conveyancer for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Bebington conveyancing practice) it is essential that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of work. We advise that you speak with two or three firms including non Bebington conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then so much the better. The following questions might be helpful:

    How familiar is the practice with lease extension legislation?

I own a 2 bed flat in Bebington, conveyancing formalities finalised 6 years ago. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Comparable properties in Bebington with an extended lease are worth £202,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £60 invoiced annually. The lease expires on 21st October 2081

With only 57 years unexpired the likely cost is going to range between £28,500 and £33,000 plus legals.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. Do not use the figures 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. You should not move forward placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
