Do the conveyancing lawyers that are recommend conduct auction conveyancing in Brampton?

We know of a few niche practitioners we can put you in touch with those who can conduct auction conveyancing. Brampton is just one of the many areas of where our lawyers are based.

I had intended to instruct a property lawyer in Brampton for our house purchase. Our financial adviser informed us that our mortgage lenders Norwich and Peterborough Building Society won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unduly restrictive?

Lenders in the main imposes restrictions either the category or the number of conveyancing firms on their panel. Typical examples of such restriction(s) being that a firm must not be a sole practitioner. In addition to restricting the type of firm, a few lenders have limited the amount of firms they allow to act for them. Be aware that Norwich and Peterborough Building Society have no responsibility for the quality of advice provided by any member of Norwich and Peterborough Building Society Conveyancer Panel. Mortgage fraud was a key driver in the rationalisation of conveyancing panels a few years ago even though there are mixed opinions about the level of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Figures from the Land Registry indicate that thousands of law firms, including some in or near Brampton only execute one or two conveyances per annum.

I happen to be the single recipient of my late grandmother’s will and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in Brampton. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in May. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship will be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the property in May. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The CML handbook instructs solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be affected by that. Most mortgage companies would take a practical view as this clause chiefly exists to pick up on subsales or the flipping of properties.

is it true that all Brampton solicitor firms on the Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel are regulated by the SRA?

As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Bank of Ireland approved list of solicitors they would need to be overseen by the SRA. Many banks do list licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such practice would be overseen by the CLC.

My fiancee and I are in the process of looking at flats in Brampton and I am about to put in an offer. Should I already have a conveyancer in place at this point? I will be getting a home loan with Lloyds.

You should start obtaining conveyancing estimates from solicitors ASAP. Once you decide who you want to use and once your offer is accepted you can instruct them to work for you and pass their details on to the selling agent. Given that you are getting a mortgage with Lloyds, make sure you remember to check that your lawyer is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel.

A colleague suggested that if I am purchasing in Brampton I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?

My husband and I are four weeks into a freehold purchase having been recommend to conveyancers by the local agent to perform conveyancing in Brampton. I am am starting to be dissatisfied with the level of service. Could you you assist me in finding new solicitors?

They would need to be really bad in order to consider replacing them. Has your mortgage offer been issued? In the event that it has you need to inform them of the new contact details and ensure the loan are re-issued. The solicitor ideally should be on the banks approved list to avoid added costs and frustration. So that should be your first question of the new conveyancers.

I am employed by a busy estate agent office in Brampton where we have witnessed a number of flat sales derailed due to short leases. I have been given inconsistent advice from local Brampton conveyancing firms. Can you shed some light as to whether the vendor of a flat can commence the lease extension formalities for the buyer?

Provided that the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the proposed purchaser need not have to sit tight for 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done before, or simultaneously with completion of the disposal of the property.

An alternative approach is to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.

I purchased a garden flat in Brampton, conveyancing was carried out half a dozen years ago. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Similar flats in Brampton with over 90 years remaining are worth £186,000. The ground rent is £55 invoiced annually. The lease terminates on 21st October 2075

With only 53 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to be between £27,600 and £31,800 plus 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 are not able to supply the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive investigations. Do not use this information in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
