Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bedminster

Can the conveyancing solicitors identified via your search tool carry out auction conveyancing in Bedminster?

There are a few niche lawyers we can put you in touch with those who can conduct auction conveyancing. Bedminster is just one of the many areas of where our lawyers have offices.

We see that you have a post code search directory listing firms on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Do firms pay you a commission if I appoint them for our conveyancing in Bedminster?

We are a listing service only for law firms wishing to communicate if they are on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel or other lender panels. We do not charge referral fees to any conveyancer that you subsequently appoint for your conveyancing in Bedminster.

We have agreed to purchase a house in Bedminster. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Co-operative have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Co-operative your lawyer must comply with the formal instructions contained in Section 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Co-operative. The CML Handbook stipulates minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to Co-operative where a lease fails to meet these requirements. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not isolated to Bedminster.

My wife and I are spending time viewing houses in Bedminster and I am now considering a potential offer. Is it premature to have a solicitor in place? I am planning to take a home loan with Bank of Ireland.

It would be sensible to start your search sooner rather than later. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and forward their details on to the estate agent. As you are getting a mortgage with Bank of Ireland, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel.

I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Bedminster off the council. I have a mortgage offer with Nottingham. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Nottingham, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Nottingham conveyancing panel.

I am buying a new build house in Bedminster benefiting from help to buy. The sellers refused to move on the price so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent advised me not disclose to my conveyancer about this deal as it would impact my loan with TSB. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Bedminster prior to appointing conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the property. Our surveyor advised that some banks tend not grant a mortgage on such a premises.

It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different requirements for example to Halifax. Should you wish to telephone us we can investigate further with the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Bedminster. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Bedminster to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Bedminster. Before diving in I would like to find out the remaining lease term.

If the lease is registered - and almost all are in Bedminster - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I invested in buying a garden flat in Bedminster, conveyancing having been completed in 1996. How much will my lease extension cost? Corresponding flats in Bedminster with over 90 years remaining are worth £202,000. The ground rent is £55 invoiced every year. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2080

With just 56 years unexpired the likely cost is going to be between £29,500 and £34,000 as well as legals.

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information without first getting professional advice.
