Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Coleford

My wife and I are hoping to buy a 1 bedroom flat in Coleford with a mortgage. We have a Coleford lawyer, however the bank advise he's not on their "panel". We have to appoint one of the bank panel solicitors or continue with our Coleford lawyer and pay for one of their panel firms to represent them. This feels very unfair; are we not able to insist that the mortgage company use our Coleford lawyer ?

Unfortunately,no. The mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank’s conveyancing panel. Until recently, most lenders had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your Coleford conveyancing solicitor to apply to be on the conveyancing panel.

At what point does exchange of contracts take place for residential conveyancing in Coleford and do I need to attend the lawyers office?

Where you are near to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Coleford you are invited in to sign the paperwork. That being said, the law practices we work with supply a nationwide conveyancing service and provide as equally diligent and professional a job for you when dealing with you electronically. The executing of the purchase agreement is not the important part. Signing on the dotted line simply enables the conveyancer to officially exchange when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where an extended "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Coleford)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

I moved into my flat on 12 July and the transaction details is not yet on the land registry website. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Coleford said it would be recorded in less than a month. Are properties in Coleford particularly slow to register?

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Coleford registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust according to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any third persons or bodies. At present in the region of 80% of submission are completed within 12 days but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Registration takes place once the new owner is living at the property so 'speed' is not typically primary concern but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers can contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

Hoping to buy a property located in Coleford and I am already nervous. I couldn't find anything specific about Coleford. Conveyancing will be needed in due course but do you know about the Coleford area? or perhaps some other tips you can share?

Rather than looking online forget looking online you should go and have a look at Coleford. In the meantime here are some basic statistics that we found

I am looking at a two flats in Coleford which have approximately forty five years remaining on the leases. Do I need to be concerned?

There are no two ways about it. A leasehold apartment in Coleford is a deteriorating asset as a result of the shortening lease. The nearer the lease gets to its expiry date, the more it adversely affects the value of the property. For most buyers and mortgage companies, leases with less than 75 years become less and less attractive. On a more positive note, leaseholders can extend their leases by serving a Section 42 Notice. One stipulation is that they must have owned the premises for two years (unlike a Section 13 notice for purchasing the freehold, when leaseholders can participate from day one of ownership). When successful, they will have the right to an extension of 90 years to the current term and ground rent is effectively reduced to zero. Before moving forward with a purchase of a residence with a short lease term remaining you should talk to a solicitor specialising in lease extensions and leasehold enfranchisement. We are are happy to put you in touch with Coleford conveyancing experts who will explain the options available to you during an initial telephone conversation free of charge. A more straightforward and quicker method of extending would be to contact your landlord directly and sound him out on the prospect of extending the lease. You may find he or she is happy to negotiate informally and willing to consider your offer straight off, without having to involve anyone else. This will save you time and money and it could help you reach a lower price on the lease. You need to ensure that the agreed terms represent good long-term value compared with the standard benefits of the Section 42 Notice and that onerous clauses are not inserted into any redrafting of the lease.

Coleford Leasehold Conveyancing - Examples of Questions you should consider Prior to Purchasing

    Most Coleford leasehold flats will be liable to pay a service bill for the upkeep of the building invoiced on behalf of the freeholder. Where you purchase the apartment you will have to pay this contribution, usually periodically during the year. This could differ from two or three hundred pounds to thousands of pounds for large purpose-built blocks. There will also be a ground rent to be met yearly, this is usually not a exorbitant sum, say around £50-£100 but you need to enquire as sometimes it can be many hundreds of pounds. This information is useful as a) areas can result in problems in the block as the communal areas may start to deteriorate if repairs remain unpaid b) if the leaseholders have a dispute with the managing agents you will need to have full disclosure How much is the ground rent and service charge?
