Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bollington

we are a couple who decided to purchase a 2 bedroom flat in Bollington with a loan from Lloyds TSB Bank.We like our Bollington conveyancing practitioner but Lloyds TSB Bank advised that her practice is not on their "panel". We have to appoint a Lloyds TSB Bank panel solicitor or retain our local solicitor and pay for a Lloyds TSB Bank panel lawyer to act for them. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that Lloyds TSB Bank use our lawyer?

Unfortunately,no. The loan issued to you contains terms and conditions, one of which will be that solicitors will be on the Lloyds TSB Bank conveyancing panel. in the past, most banks had large numbers of solicitors on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Lloyds TSB Bank

Does a directory service exist listing Clydesdale panel solicitors in Bollington on the Council of Mortgage Lender’s Website?

No. There is no such tool on the CML or Building Society Association websites. A small selection of lending institutions make their panel listings visible on the web. Where you are looking for a Bollington conveyancing practitioner on the Clydesdale please use our facility.

How can we know in advance if a Bollington conveyancing solicitor on the RBS panel is any good?

When it comes to conveyancing in Bollington seeking recommendations is a good starting point. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one advertising the lowest fees. We would always suggest that you speak with the solicitor handling your conveyancing.

I am due to exchange contracts on my house. I had a double glazing fitted in February 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Clydesdale are being a right pain. The Bollington solicitor who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Clydesdale are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Clydesdale have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Clydesdale have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Clydesdale may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

Flying freeholds in Bollington are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses.

Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Bollington may decide 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 residence.

The management company has quoted £336 for Landlord’s certificate, building insurance schedule and previous years service charge statements. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge such fees for a leasehold conveyance in Bollington?

For the majority of leasehold sales in Bollington conveyancing will involve, queries regarding the management of a building inevitably needing to be answered directly by the freeholder or its agent, this includes :

    Answering pre-exchange questions Where consent is required before sale in Bollington Copies of the building insurance and schedule Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your lawyer will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Bollington leasehold property is £350. For Bollington conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are obliged to supply answers.

I bought a studio flat in Bollington, conveyancing having been completed 9 years ago. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Similar properties in Bollington with a long lease are worth £192,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 invoiced annually. The lease expires on 21st October 2078

You have 54 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £32,300 and £37,400 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive investigations. You should not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
