Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Calstock

My conveyancer has uncovered a a problem with the lease for the apartment we are buying in Calstock. The seller’s lawyers have offered title insurance as a solution. We are happy with insurance and will pay for it. Our conveyancing practitioner has advised that he must be satisfied that the bank is willing to move forward with this solution. Are we the client or is the mortgage company ?

Notwithstanding that you have a mortgage offer from the bank does not mean to say that the property will meet their provisions for the purposes of a mortgage. Your lawyer has to ensure that the lease has to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions. You and the lender are the client. These conveyancing instructions must be adhered to.

What is the first thing I need to know concerning purchase conveyancing in Calstock?

Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Calstock or throughout Devon is an adversarial process. Put another way, when it comes to conveyancing there is plenty of opportunity for conflict between you and other parties involved in the ownership transfer. For instance, the vendor, estate agent and sometimes your mortgage company. Appointing a solicitor for your conveyancing in Calstock is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY person in the legal process whose interest is to protect your best interests and to keep you safe.

Sometimes a third party with a vested interest may try and persuade you that you should follow their advice. For instance, the selling agent may claim to be assisting by claiming that your lawyer is slow. Or your mortgage broker may advise you to do take action that is contrary to your lawyers advice. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties when it comes to the legal transfer of property.

We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The bank mentioned the mortgage came with free conveyancing. Is the implication that I have to use their panel lawyer as I would prefer to use a local conveyancing solicitor in Calstock?

Do check but the the likelihood is that appoint one of their panel lawyers where you accept the "fee-free" deal. Speak to the bank to see if they offer you a monetary alternative. In the past a few lenders offered a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case that money can go towards the cost for your conveyancing solicitor near Calstock.

I am buying a new build flat in Calstock. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build legal work.

Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Calstock

    Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose? Please supply a car parking plan. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Calstock is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Calstock are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Calstock you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Calstock may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

Can you offer any advice when it comes to appointing a Calstock conveyancing practice to deal with our lease extension?

If you are instructing a solicitor for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Calstock conveyancing firm) it is essential that they be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We recommend that you speak with several firms including non Calstock conveyancing practices before you instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions might be useful:

    What are the legal fees for lease extension conveyancing? How many lease extensions have they conducted in Calstock in the last 12 months?

I invested in buying a studio flat in Calstock, conveyancing formalities finalised February 2007. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Corresponding properties in Calstock with over 90 years remaining are worth £216,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 charged once a year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2091

With 69 years unexpired the likely cost is going to span between £9,500 and £11,000 plus legals.

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 due diligence. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be 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 before seeking the advice of a professional.
