Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Belmont

A mortgage agreement from Santander for the refinancing of my 4 room apartment is coming by the end of next week. Are you able to put forward a low cost conveyancing law firm in Belmont?

You have come to the wrong site to search for cut-price fees for conveyancing in Belmont. Our intention is to offer excellent value conveyancing but we do not advertise as being the cheapest. Avoid the trap of appointing companies offering the bait of ninety nine pound conveyancing in Belmont. At best, in choosing a lawyer for cheap conveyancing, you will get your money’s worth and at worst it will result in you being stung for additional fees and still not get the service you were looking for.

Our son is buying a house that has just been built in Belmont with a home loan from Nottingham. His conveyancer has said that there is a delay in completing the ‘Disclosure of Incentive Form’. What is this document - I have never come across this before?

The document is intended to provide information to the main parties involved in the transaction. Therefore, it will be provided to your son’s lawyer who should be on the Nottingham conveyancing panel as a standard part of the process, and to the valuer when asked. The developer will be required to start the process by downloading the form and completing it. The form will therefore need to be available for the valuer at the time of his or her site visit. The form should be sent to the Nottingham conveyancing panel solicitor as early as possible, in order to avoid any last minute delays, and no later than at exchange of contracts.

My wife and I buying a 3 bedroom semi in Belmont. We would like to an extension at the rear at the property.Will the conveyancing process include checks to ascertain if these alterations are permitted?

Your conveyancer should check the deeds as conveyancing in Belmont will occasionally reveal restrictions in the title deeds which restrict categories of changes or need the consent of a 3rd party. Some works need local authority planning permissions and approval in compliance with building regulations. Certain locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or impact extensions. It would be sensible to check these issues with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.

Can you help - my lawyer advises that missing deeds insurance is needed on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Belmont?

The right level of missing deeds indemnity insurance depends on who your lender is. It would differ for example between HSBC Bank and Chelsea Building Society. Conveyancing solicitors as opposed to members of the public take out such insurances.

My offer was accepted on a house in Belmont on 28/5/2020, valuation was booked 4 days later, received a clean bill of health. Conveyancer retained, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to RBS and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the RBS conveyancing panel. Are RBS entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?

A lender would not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for RBS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the RBS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

How can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my business property in Belmont and how can you help?

The particular law that you refer to provides a safeguard to commercial tenants, granting the a statutory right to apply to court for a new lease and remain in occupation at the end of an expired lease. There are limited grounds where a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are complex. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing. Belmont is one of the numerous areas of the UK in which the firms we work with are located

I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord to extend my lease without success. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on such matters? Can you recommend a Belmont conveyancing firm to represent me?

Most definitely. We can put you in touch with a Belmont conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Freehold Enfranchisement matter before the tribunal for a Belmont premises is Buchanan Court 39 Vernon Road in April 2010. the Tribunal assessed that the premium payable for the freehold of the block should be £44,000. This case related to 2 flats. The unexpired term as at the valuation date was 66.67 years.

What makes a Belmont lease defective?

There is nothing unique about leasehold conveyancing in Belmont. Most leases are individual and drafting errors can sometimes mean that certain clauses are not included. For example, if your lease is missing any of the following, it could be defective:

    A provision for the recovery of money spent for the benefit of another party. Service charge per centages that don't add up correctly leaving a shortfall

You may encounter a problem when selling your property if you have a defective lease as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage. Accord Mortgages Ltd, The Mortgage Works, and Clydesdale all have very detailed requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is defective they may refuse to grant the mortgage, obliging the purchaser to withdraw.
