Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Cranbrook

Having been suggested to visit your site we were going to go ahead with a conveyancing solicitor in Cranbrook listed on your site but stumbled across some other fee calculations via the web seem less expensive – why is this?

There are plenty of conveyancing companies marketing at first sight what seems to be cut price. You should think long and hard as to how much you respect your own move to want to be penny wise pound foolish with regard to the quality of the legal work. Some embed fees well inside the terms of engagement. The law firms that we list for conveyancing in Cranbrook will notdo this.

We are a couple about to exchange contracts for a leasehold flat in Cranbrook. We have hit a stumbling block. Our mortgage offer with Accord Mortgages Ltd expires on 22/7/2024 but the sellers are suggesting a completion date of 24/7/2024. Is it possible to extend the loan offer?

The best person to address this concern is your solicitors who will hopefully assess if he or she is should be discussing with the mortgage company, owner’s conveyancers, selling agents or indeed all parties based on the history of your house move as of today.

My solicitor has informed me that absentee landlord insurance is required on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Cranbrook conveyancing?

The right level of absentee landlord indemnity insurance depends on who your lender is. It would differ for example between Barclays and Virgin Money. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to borrowers take out such policies.

I can not work out if my mortgage offer obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called into my local Cranbrook building society branch on various occasions and was told it wasn't a problem and they will lend. My Cranbrook conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- called and was told they would not lend in accordance with their published requirements. I simply don't know who is right.

Provided that the property lawyer is on the lender panel, she or he must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook specifications for the bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the bank 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.

About to purchase house in Cranbrook. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the UBS conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.

They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Cranbrook lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel.

How does conveyancing in Cranbrook differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Cranbrook contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because new home sellers in Cranbrook typically buy the land, 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 Cranbrook or who has acted in the same development.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Cranbrook. Before I set the wheels in motion I would like to find out the number of years remaining on the lease.

If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Cranbrook - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I inherited a 2 bed flat in Cranbrook, conveyancing was carried out September 2010. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Comparable flats in Cranbrook with an extended lease are worth £207,000. The ground rent is £60 invoiced annually. The lease ceases on 21st October 2081

With only 57 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to be between £28,500 and £33,000 as well as costs.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.

Having used your search tool I can't find the lawyer I was hoping to instruct as being on the lender conveyancing panel. My lawyer has said that they are on the mortgage company approved panel. How can I be sure given that they are not listed on your directory?

Not all firms are yet listed on our lender panel search tool which is still relatively new. Law firms are listing on a daily basis and it is probably the case that your lawyer is on the bank conveyancing lawyer and you should probably take them at their word. Please do feel free to suggest that they completing their listing on our site as it would only cost them £1 a month to list themselves as being on the bank solicitor panel.
