I've digested plenty of mortgage guides, I note that it is considered advisable to get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Blaby solicitor - who is on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?
Bank of Ireland will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Bank of Ireland will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your conveyancer will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Blaby postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Bank of Ireland, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Blaby.

The property agent will want to be advised as to your conveyancer's details (be sure the property lawyers are on the lender’s approved list). Telephone Virgin Money or your financial adviser and finalise any outstanding forms. Virgin Money will instruct a valuer who will get in touch with the estate agent or seller to schedule an appointment. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes approximately ten days for the mortgage offer to be issued. Virgin Money will issue 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 Blaby.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Blaby is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can give?
Flying freeholds in Blaby are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Blaby you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Blaby may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

I am attracted to a couple of apartments in Blaby both have about fifty years unexpired on the lease term. Will this present a problem?
There are plenty of short leases in Blaby. The lease is a legal document that entitles you to use the property for a prescribed time frame. As a lease shortens the saleability of the lease reduces and results in it becoming more expensive to acquire a lease extension. This is why it is often a good idea to increase the term of the lease. It is often difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease because mortgage lenders less inclined to grant a loan on properties of this type. Lease extension can be a difficult process. We recommend you seek professional assistance from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this field.
I inherited a 2 bed flat in Blaby, conveyancing having been completed half a dozen years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Corresponding properties in Blaby with an extended lease are worth £190,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 yearly. The lease terminates on 21st October 2085
With only 62 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £17,100 and £19,800 plus professional fees.
The figure 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 investigations. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
My step-father purchased his flat in Blaby 9 years ago. He has since got wed, widowed and is now married again. He will be marketing the property in a few weeks. I think he will simply be need to provide a copy of the marriage certificates to the conveyancer however he is worried it will frustrate the sale of the flat. Is it worth updating the land title information for the property?
The is no need to bring up to date the title for the property on the basis that you have the proof needed to demonstrate how the name change has come about.
Any purchaser’s conveyancer will review the land registry entries and ask for evidence to establish the change of name for instance marriage documentation.
