Where you intend to re-mortgage then Skipton will require that you use a conveyancer on the Skipton conveyancing panel. Here is link to the Land Registry online guidance around what to do when a property owner dies. This will help you to understand the registration process behind changing the details re the registered title. in your case it would appear that you are effectively purchasing the property from the estate.

My wife and I own a terraced Edwardian property in Borrowash. Conveyancing lawyer acted for me and Nationwide Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and I saw a couple of entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the matching property. I'd like to know for sure, how can I find out??

You need to read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Borrowash and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also question the position with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the conveyancing.

Given that I am about to spend 450k on a terraced house in Borrowash I would like to talk to a lawyer regarding theconveyancing ahead of instructing the firm. Can this be arranged?

This is something that we recommend - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the solicitor due to be conducting your conveyancing in Borrowash.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is unique individual, not a file number. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the figure you are calculated and presented to you for residential conveyancing in Borrowash should be the figure that you are charged.

My husband and I are FTB’s - agreed a price, but the property agent told us that the seller will only issue a contract if we instruct the agent's chosen conveyancers as they want an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Borrowash

It is highly unlikely the owners are behind this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated buyer is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Contact the owners directly and make the point that (a)you are motivated purchasers (b)you are ready to progress, with finances in place © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you are going to appoint your preferred Borrowash conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthe ones that will give their estate agent a kickback or hit his conveyancing thresholds pre-set by head office.

I am hoping to put an offer on a small detached house that appears to meet my requirements, at a reasonable figure which is making it all the more appealing. I have subsequently been informed that it's a leasehold rather than freehold. I am assuming that there are particular concerns purchasing a leasehold house in Borrowash. Conveyancing lawyers have are about to be appointed. Will they explain the issues?

Most houses in Borrowash are freehold and not leasehold. This is one of the situations where having a local solicitor used to dealing with such properties who can help the conveyancing process. it is apparent that you are purchasing in Borrowash so you should seriously consider looking for a Borrowash conveyancing solicitor and be sure that they have experience in dealing with leasehold houses. First you will need to check the unexpired lease term. Being a lessee you will not be at liberty to do whatever you want with the house. The lease comes with conditions for example requiring the landlord’sconsent to conduct alterations. You may also be required to pay a maintenance charge towards the maintenance of the estate where the property is located on an estate. Your lawyer will appraise you on the various issues.

I am the registered owner of a split level flat in Borrowash, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Similar flats in Borrowash with over 90 years remaining are worth £196,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 invoiced every year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2086

With just 64 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £15,200 and £17,600 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

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 due diligence. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.
