Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Calcot

I am looking for value for money property lawyer. Should I go for for an internet conveyancer as opposed to a high street Calcot conveyancing lawyer?

Established third party relationships are another important factor to consider when choosing conveyancing lawyers. Calcot conveyancers often have connections with lenders and agents, local authorities, surveyors and other conveyancing firms meaning you will move in shortest possible time. Possessing a well rounded experience in the local area also helps too.

It is a dozen years since I bought my home in Calcot. Conveyancing lawyers have just been instructed on the sale but I can't find my title documents. Is this a major issue?

Don’t worry too much. First the deeds may be with your mortgage company or they may be archived with the conveyancers who oversaw the purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the property will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers obtaining current official copies of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Calcot relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your property is not registered it is more tricky but is resolvable.

I am planning to move house in May. Does my conveyancing solicitor communicate with the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you put forward a removal company in Calcot. Conveyancing firm was chosen prior to coming across your page.

On the afternoon of completion you will need to collect the keys from your estate agent but this should only happen when the previous owners conveyancers inform the agent that they acknowledge receipt of the completion payment and the keys can be passed over. After that you can inform the removal company that they can start moving you in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a particular removal organisation but can help you choose a residential property solicitor in Calcot or a legal practice with expertise in conveyancing in Calcot.

I am buying a property in Calcot. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Kent Reliance have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?

As you are obtaining a mortgage with Kent Reliance your lawyer must comply with the formal instructions set out in Part 2 of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Kent Reliance. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook stipulates minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancers are required to report to Kent Reliance where a lease does not comply with these provisions. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties in England and Wales and is not isolated to Calcot.

I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in May 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, RBS are being a right pain. The Calcot solicitor who is on the RBS conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but RBS are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do RBS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that RBS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why RBS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

4 months have gone by since my purchase conveyancing in Calcot concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £160,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the premises from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

I need to retain a conveyancing solicitor for remortgage conveyancing in Calcot. I've land on a web site which looks to be the perfect answer If there is a chance to get all the legals completed via web that would be ideal. Should I be wary? What should out be looking out for?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?

I am intending to sublet my leasehold apartment in Calcot. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask her. Do I need to ask my freeholder for their consent?

A lease governs relations between the freeholder and you the flat owner; specifically, it will indicate if subletting is prohibited, or permitted but only subject to certain caveats. The accepted inference is that if the lease contains no expres ban or restriction, subletting is allowed. The majority of leases in Calcot do not prevent an absolute prevention of subletting – such a provision would adversely affect the market value the flat. In most cases there is simply a requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly supplying a copy of the tenancy agreement.

I bought a split level flat in Calcot, conveyancing formalities finalised in 2007. How much will my lease extension cost? Corresponding flats in Calcot with over 90 years remaining are worth £260,000. The ground rent is £45 charged once a year. The lease ends on 21st October 2097

You have 74 years left to run the likely cost is going to be between £8,600 and £9,800 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 in the absence of comprehensive investigations. You should not use the figures 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. Please do not move forward placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
