There is lots of information on this site regarding conveyancing in Biddenham but can you isolate your top tip for appointing the right conveyancer in Biddenham

We would encourage you not to base your choice on the cheapest Biddenham conveyancing quote. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you go into the conveyancing with your eyes wide open.

I am assisting my niece sell her house in Biddenham. Will the conveyancing solicitor arrange an energy performance certificate or it is for me to see to?

Following the demise of Home Packs, energy assessments became a compulsory part of selling a property. An energy performance certificate should be commissioned prior to the property being advertised. This is not as aspect of the sale process that law firms normally organise. If you are using a Biddenham conveyancing lawyer they might be able to arrange energy performance certificates given their contacts with reputable Biddenham providers

I was recommended by a number of selling agents in Biddenham to choose a solicitor on your site. Is there a financial incentive for Estate Agents to market your site ahead of another?

We refuse to make any commission for pointing buyers and sellers to this site. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as members of the public would think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

I am using a search engine for the term cheap conveyancing in Biddenham it reveals numerous conveyancerslocally. How do I determine which is the suitable conveyancer for me?

The best way of choosing a suitable conveyancer is via personal testimonial, so seek the opinion of colleagues and those you trust who have acquired a property in Biddenham or the respected estate agent or mortgage broker. Costs for conveyancing in Biddenham differ, so it's sensible to secure at least four quotes from different law firms. Dont forget to clarify that the costs are assured not to escalate.

I've recently bought a leasehold property in Biddenham. Am I liable to pay service charges relating to a period prior to completion of my purchase?

Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

I bought a garden flat in Biddenham, conveyancing having been completed May 2008. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Equivalent flats in Biddenham with a long lease are worth £201,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 invoiced annually. The lease finishes on 21st October 2086

With only 65 years unexpired the likely cost is going to be between £13,300 and £15,400 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information before getting professional advice.
