Is it the case that all Brundall solicitors on the Aldermore conveyancing panel are governed by the SRA?

As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Aldermore approved list of solicitors they would need to be regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Many mortgage companies do list licenced conveyancers on their panel and in that case the practice would be regulated by the CLC.

It is unclear whether my bank requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Brundall bank branch on a couple of occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they would lend. My Brundall conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called and was told they would not lend in accordance with their published requirements. I have no idea who is right.

The conveyancing practitioner must follow the CML Handbook section two specifications for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the mortgage company to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

My sealed bid on a semi in Brundall has been accepted, but there is a chain. The vendors have offered on on an apartment, but it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other apartments in the pipeline. I have instructed a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Brundall. What should be my next step? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with Lloyds?

It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Brundall conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you should check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the Lloyds approved list. As to the next stages this very much depends on the specifics of your case, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. In a rising market many purchasers will apply for the mortgage with Lloyds and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their solicitor to press on with searches.

How does conveyancing in Brundall differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Brundall contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because house builders in Brundall tend to acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Brundall or who has acted in the same development.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one close by in Brundall I like with open areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Brundall for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.

I would like to let out my leasehold apartment in Brundall. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask her. Do I need to ask my freeholder for their consent?

Notwithstanding that your last Brundall conveyancing lawyer is no longer available you can check your lease to see if it allows you to sublet the property. The rule is that if the lease is non-specific, subletting is allowed. Quite often there is a prerequisite that you must seek permission from your landlord or other appropriate person prior to subletting. The net result is that you cannot sublet without first obtaining consent. The consent should not be unreasonably refused ore delayed. If your lease does not allow you to sublet you will need to ask your landlord if they are willing to waive this restriction.
