Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Beddgelert

Is there a reason why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Beddgelert is more expensive?

Beddgelert leasehold conveyancing transactions usually involve additional investigations than freeholds including investigating the Lease, liaising with the Landlord such as serving applicable notices on the Landlord or managing agent, obtaining up-to-date service charge and management information, obtaining Landlord’s consents and reviewing management accounts and formation documents.

Is it the case that all Beddgelert solicitors on the TSB conveyancing panel are regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?

As solicitors, in order to be on the TSB approved list of solicitors they would need to be overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Some lenders do allow licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the firms would be governed by the CLC.

I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in December 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Santander are being a right pain. The Beddgelert solicitor who is on the Santander conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Santander are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Santander have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Santander have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Santander may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

My sealed bid on a semi in Beddgelert has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The vendors have placed an offer on a property, however it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other properties in the pipeline. I have selected a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Beddgelert. What do I do now? When do I get the mortgage application with Clydesdale going?

It is usual to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs too early (home loan application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Beddgelert conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you should check that your lawyer is on the Clydesdale approved list. Regarding the subsequent stages this very much depends on the circumstances of your case, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market the majority of buyers will apply for the mortgage with Clydesdale and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they pay their conveyancing practitioner to press on with searches.

Should our solicitor be making enquiries about flooding during the conveyancing in Beddgelert.

The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for solicitors carrying out conveyancing in Beddgelert. Plenty of people will purchase a property in Beddgelert, completely expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, aside from the physical damage, if a house is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, adequate insurance cover, or sell the property. There are steps that can be taken during the course of a property purchase to forewarn the buyer.

Conveyancers are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, however there are a number of checks that may be undertaken by the buyer or by their solicitors which will figure out the risks in Beddgelert. The conventional set of information supplied to a buyer’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a standard question of the vendor to find out whether the premises has ever been flooded. In the event that the premises has been flooded in past and is not revealed by the owner, then a buyer could commence a compensation claim resulting from an incorrect answer. A buyer’s lawyers should also conduct an enviro search. This should disclose if there is a recorded flood risk. If so, further inquiries should be conducted.

4 months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Beddgelert concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Beddgelert. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.

Here is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Beddgelert

    Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore.

We expect to complete the disposal of our £250,000 garden flat in Beddgelert on Tuesday in a week. The managing agents has quoted £372 for Certificate of Compliance, building insurance schedule and previous years statements of service charge. Is the landlord entitled to charge such fees for a leasehold conveyance in Beddgelert?

For the majority of leasehold sales in Beddgelert conveyancing will involve, queries regarding the management of a building inevitably needing to be answered directly by the freeholder or its agent, this includes :

    Completing pre-exchange questions Where consent is required before sale in Beddgelert Supplying insurance information Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your solicitor will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Beddgelert leasehold property is £350. For Beddgelert conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are required to provide the information.

I purchased a 1 bedroom flat in Beddgelert, conveyancing having been completed February 2010. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Corresponding properties in Beddgelert with an extended lease are worth £202,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 invoiced every year. The lease expires on 21st October 2078

With 56 years unexpired we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £29,500 and £34,000 plus legals.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.
