Does a directory service exist listing Leeds Building Society panel solicitors in Bedmond on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?

Lloyds have agreed my home loan in principle, my bid on a house in Bedmond has been agreed to, now what?

The property agent will want to be advised as to your conveyancer's details (ensure that the conveyancing practitioners are on the bank’s panel). Telephone Lloyds or the financial adviser and finish off any appropriate forms. Lloyds will appoint a valuer who will get in contact with the selling agent or seller to book a time for the valuation to happen. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes about ten days to get a mortgage offer. Lloyds will send the offer to you and your property lawyers. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Bedmond.

I have finally had an offer on a flat in Bedmond accepted, but there is a chain. The owners have placed an offer on a property, but it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other flats in the pipeline. I have selected a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Bedmond. What do I do now? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with Clydesdale?

It is understandable to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses too early (home loan application is in the region of £1k, then valuation, Bedmond conveyancing search costs, etc). The first course of action is to ensure that your property lawyer is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. Concerning the subsequent phase this very much depends on the uniqueness of your transaction, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market many buyers will apply for the mortgage with Clydesdale and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their conveyancer to move forward with searches.

A relative advised me that if I am buying in Bedmond I should ask my conveyancer to perform a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?

A search of this type is occasionally quoted for as part of the standard Bedmond conveyancing searches. It is not a small report of about 40 pages, listing and setting out significant information about Bedmond around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Bedmond Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime details, Local Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data regarding Bedmond.

I have todaybecome aware that Action Conveyancing have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Bedmond for a purchase of a freehold house 12 months ago. How can I establish that the property is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?

The easiest way to check if the property is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Bedmond conveyancing specialists.

Do I need to be suspicious about 3rd parties that I am dealing with are suggesting a web based conveyancing firm rather than a local Bedmond conveyancing firm?

As with lots of professional services, often suggestions from relatives can be extremely useful or valuable. Yet there are many players in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, financial adviser and mortgage companies might all recommend solicitors to choose. Sometimes the conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but occasionally there may be a commercial relationship behind the endorsement. You are free to select your own lawyer. You need to be aware that many mortgage providers specify a panel list of solicitors you have to use for the lender related work in your transaction.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my 2 bed flat in Bedmond. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have just received a yearly maintenance charge demand – what should I do?

The sensible thing to do is discharge the service charge as you normally would because all ground rent and maintenance charges should be allotted on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

I invested in buying a basement flat in Bedmond, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Comparable properties in Bedmond with an extended lease are worth £260,000. The ground rent is £45 levied per year. The lease expires on 21st October 2096

With 74 years remaining on your lease we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as professional fees.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information before getting professional advice.
