Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Bradford

I am buying residence in Bradford. My Conveyancer is not listed on the bank conveyancing panel. Can I still continue with my Bradford conveyancing solicitor even though they are excluded from the lender approved list?

One must appoint a solicitor to deal with the legal work required when you take out a loan to purchase your property. The lawyer will carry out all the necessary investigations on the property, make sure that you’re properly registered as the owner and ensure that all the necessary mortgage paperwork is dealt with. One may select a Bradford lawyer of your choosing. Nevertheless, where the conveyancing practitioner selected is not on the lender approved list supplemental charges will arise as separate legal representation will be required by them. Lender panel applications can be submitted, so where your solicitor has not previously applied for membership they should take the chance to apply.

Do the conveyancing solicitors listed on your site execute conveyancing in Bradford by way of an attended exchange?

We do have a number of conveyancing experts carrying out attended exchanges. Do contact us to get a costs illustration and details as to availability.

Should commercial conveyancing searches disclose impending roadworks that may impact a commercial property in Bradford?

Many commercial conveyancing solicitors in Bradford will conduct a SiteSolutions Highways report as it dramatically cuts the time that conveyancers invest in researching accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Bradford. The report provides definitive data on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Bradford.

For every commercial conveyancing transaction in Bradford it is critical to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site. The absence of identifying developments where adoption procedures have not been addressed adequately could result in delays to Bradford commercial conveyancing deals as well as pose a risk to future intentions for the site. These searches are not carried out for domestic conveyancing in Bradford.

I purchased my flat on 10 August and the transaction details is not yet registered. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Bradford advises it should be registered inside ten days. Are transfers in Bradford uniquely lengthy to register?

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Bradford registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust according to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry communicate with any third parties. Currently approximately 80% of submission are fully dealt with within two weeks but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Registration occurs once the purchaser is living at the premises so an expedited registration is not always an essential issue but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

Am I better off to use a Bradford conveyancing practitioner based in the vicinity that I am purchasing? We have a good friend who can perform the legal work however they are based over three hundred miles away.

The benefit of a local Bradford conveyancing firm is that you can attend the office to execute paperwork, hand in your identification documents and pester them where appropriate. Having local Bradford know how is a bonus. However nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If you know people who instructed your friend and on the whole were content that must surpass using an unfamiliar Bradford conveyancing lawyer just because they are based in the area.

When it comes to leasehold conveyancing in Bradford what are the most frequent lease defects?

Leasehold conveyancing in Bradford is not unique. All leases are drafted differently and drafting errors can sometimes mean that certain clauses are erroneous. The following missing provisions could result in a defective lease:

    Insurance obligations

You may have difficulties when selling your property if you have a defective lease as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage. Birmingham Midshires, The Royal Bank of Scotland, and Bank of Ireland all have express requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. If a mortgage lender believes that the lease does not cover certain provisions they may refuse to grant the mortgage, obliging the purchaser to withdraw.

I am the registered owner of a 1st floor flat in Bradford, conveyancing having been completed 5 years ago. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Comparable flats in Bradford with over 90 years remaining are worth £165,000. The ground rent is £50 levied per year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2098

With only 77 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £7,600 and £8,800 as well as professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt other issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
