I am buying a house without a mortgage in Bridlington. I have been residing for the previous Seventeen years in Bridlington. Conveyancing searches are exorbitant. As I know the area and road very well must I have all the conveyancing searches?

Your conveyancer will ’encourage you, perhaps strongly, that you should have searches completed, but he has a professional duty to take that path of guidance.

Please help - my lawyer says that defective lease insurance is required on my purchase. What is the typical level of cover needed for conveyancing in Bridlington?

The appropriate level of defective lease indemnity insurance depends on your lender. It would differ for example between Nationwide Building Society and Virgin Money. Conveyancing lawyers as opposed to members of the public take out such insurances.

We had chosen conveyancers with offices in Bridlington on the Yorkshire BS solicitor panel. They have just invoiced me a further charge for the legal aspects of the Yorkshire BS mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Yorkshire BS?

Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your lawyer may levy a fee for this. The fee is not dictated by Yorkshire BS but by your Bridlington conveyancer. Plenty of firms on the Yorkshire BS panel will charge ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.

My offer was accepted on a property in Bridlington on 15/11/2021, valuation was booked five days after, all came back fine. Conveyancer retained, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to Santander and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the Santander conveyancing panel. Are Santander entitled to hold back the Mortgage pending the lawyer being on the approved list?

Mortgage companies tend not to not issue a mortgage until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for Santander to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the Santander conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my 2 bed apartment in Bridlington. Conveyancing has not commenced, but I have recently received a quarterly maintenance charge demand – Do I pay up?

It best that you pay the service charge as you normally would given that all ground rent and maintenance payments will be allotted on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

I bought a split level flat in Bridlington, conveyancing having been completed in 1999. How much will my lease extension cost? Equivalent properties in Bridlington with a long lease are worth £255,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 yearly. The lease finishes on 21st October 2095

With only 73 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to range between £8,600 and £9,800 plus professional fees.

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other concerns that need to be considered and clearly you should 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.

Finally our conveyancing in Bridlington completes next Friday, yet the owners I am purchasing from wishes to vacate 24 hours later at midday. Should I accept such a idea?

Where you need a mortgage then your solicitor will require that the premises arevacant on Friday - the lender will demand it.
