Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Billericay

I am searching for value for money property lawyer. Do I opt for a web based conveyancer rather than a family Billericay conveyancing solicitor?

Generally conveyancing lawyers in your location will enjoy strong connections with your local authority, which could assist with the Billericay conveyancing searches that your solicitor will require. It can only be a plus if they have good connections with the Local Land Registry Office your area Billericay, other lawyers in the neighbourhood and Billericay property agents.

My partner and I are acquiring our first house. The lawyer has messagedto ask if we wish to take out additional conveyancing searches. As novices we in the dark as to what's needed for conveyancing in Billericay

The range of Billericay conveyancing searches should be triggered based entirely on the property, the location, the likelihood of any of these risks, your familiarity of the region and risks, your general appetite to risk. What is important is that you adequately understand what information each search could supply. Then you can make a decision if you personally think you need that information. Should you be uncertain, ask the conveyancer to explain.

What does my ID and proof of funds have anything to do with my conveyancing in Billericay? What am I being asked for?

It is indeed that case that the requirement set out by your lawyer has nothing to do with conveyancing in Billericay. However these days you will not be able to proceed with any conveyancing transaction if you have not supplying proof of your identity. Ordinarily this takes the form of a either your passport or driving licence as well as a utility bill. Remember if you are providing your driving licence as proof of identification it needs to be both the paper section and photo card part, one is not sufficient in the absence of the other.

Verification of your origin of monies is required under Money Laundering Regulations. Please do not be offended when you are asked to produce this as your conveyancer must have this information on record. Your Billericay conveyancing lawyer will need to see evidence of proof of funds before they are able to accept any money from you into their client account and they may also ask further queries concerning the source of funds.

Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our home are lost. The lawyers who did the conveyancing in Billericay 10 years ago have long since closed. What do I do?

You no longer need to have the physical original deeds to evidence that you are the registered proprietor of land or premises, given that the Land Registry hold details of all registered land or property electronically.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build apartment in Billericay. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.

Here are examples of a few leasehold new build enquiries that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Billericay

    There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified.

I would like to sublet my leasehold flat in Billericay. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask her. Do I need to ask my freeholder for permission?

Some leases for properties in Billericay do contain a provision to say that subletting is only permitted with prior consent from the landlord. The landlord cannot unreasonably withhold but, in such cases, they would need to see references. Experience suggests that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting permission.

I bought a 1 bedroom flat in Billericay, conveyancing was carried out in 1996. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Comparable flats in Billericay with an extended lease are worth £206,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 invoiced every year. The lease ends on 21st October 2088

With only 65 years left to run the likely cost is going to be between £13,300 and £15,400 as well as costs.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more detailed investigations. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
