Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bellingham

Why would I appoint a Bellingham conveyancing solicitors firm when national alternatives are cheap by comparison?

By all means make sure that you get 2 or 3 like-for-like quotes for conveyancing costs in Bellingham and you should seek an affordable quote but don’t expend your energy scouring the internet for the cheapest Bellingham conveyancer. Finding the right conveyancer can be the difference between a smooth and a distressing home move. It is important that you ensure that you have expert advice from a specialist conveyancer. An e-mail can never be as helpful as a telephone call and can never replicate a face to face meeting. The firms that we work with will appoint you a qualified and trusted conveyancing solicitor who can handle your conveyancing from beginning to end, giving the sort of personalised service that you are unlikely to received from an internet conveyancer. He or She will inform you on progress and keep you informed. If you ever need to contact the firm you will be sure who to ask for and they will ensure you are in the know.

As a first time buyer what is the most important piece of guidance you can give me regarding purchase conveyancing in Bellingham?

Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in Bellingham and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is plenty of room for conflict between you and other parties involved in the legal transfer of property. For instance, the vendor, property agent and even potentially the lender. Choosing a solicitor for your conveyancing in Bellingham is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONE party in the transaction whose responsibility is to look after your best interests and to keep you safe.

There is a distinct emergence of a "blame" culture- someone must be blamed for the process being so protracted. You should always trust your conveyancer ahead of the other players when it comes to the legal assignment of property.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up as part of conveyancing in Bellingham?

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Bellingham. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £305k and found one near me in Bellingham I like with a park and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Bellingham in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.

I need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor for some conveyancing in Bellingham. I've chance upon a web site which seems to have the perfect answer If there is a chance to get all the legals completed via phone that would be ideal. Do I need to be concerned? What are the potential pitfalls?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Bellingham. Before diving in I require certainty as to the remaining lease term.

Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Bellingham - 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 have had difficulty in trying to purchase the freehold in Bellingham. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on premiums?

in cases where there is a absentee landlord or where there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the relevant legislation it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to determine the sum to be paid.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement matter before the tribunal for a Bellingham premises is 75 Woolstone Road in February 2012. the decision of the Tribunal was that the appropriate amount to be paid to purchase the freehold was the sum of £17,711 . This case affected 2 flats. The unexpired term was 68.28 and 158.
