Can you help? My Cambourne conveyancer is informing me me that she is duty bound toorder Cambourne conveyancing searches resulting from the fact thatthe firm are on the HSBCapproved lawyer panel. These Cambourne searches cost a lot of money can this be avoided?
Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are taking a mortgage with a bank your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your property lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the CML Handbook provisions . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Cambourne conveyancing searches.

I have just appointed agents to market my ground floor flat in Cambourne. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have recently had a half-yearly maintenance charge invoice – Do I pay up?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should pay the maintenance contribution as usual because all rents and service charges should be apportioned on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless 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. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
I purchased a split level flat in Cambourne, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Comparable properties in Cambourne with an extended lease are worth £190,000. The ground rent is £45 yearly. The lease finishes on 21st October 2084
You have 62 years unexpired the likely cost is going to be between £17,100 and £19,800 plus legals.
The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to supply the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional issues that need to be considered and clearly you want to 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.
My parents cant seem to find their Cambourne property on the HM Land Registry site. They have a vague recollection back in the 60’s when they acquired the property there were complications concerning the address not being identified on some systems.
Nearly all premises in Cambourne should show up. Have you endevoured to search to simply the postcode. Usually it will identify all the residences within that postcode. Assuming the property is recorded it will show up with a title number. Where they bought 48 years ago it's conceivable it may be unrecorded. The property could still be revealed but with the title number identified as 'na'. In this scenario you will need to track down the original title deeds which might be with your parent’s bank.
