Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Croston

At what point does exchange of contracts happen for purchase conveyancing in Croston and am I required to be at the solicitors office?

Where you are in close proximity to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Croston you are invited in to sign contracts. However, the lender approved solicitors we work with supply a national conveyancing service and give just as diligent and professional a job for you when dealing with you by post or email. The executing of the property agreement is not the important part. Signing on the dotted line simply enables the firm to address the formalities when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The exchange process is is usually a five minute process, although where a lengthy "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Croston)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

I have been referred to a conveyancing solicitor in Croston. I I am struggling to find out if they are on the Alliance & Leicester approved list of lawyers. Could you advise?

You should call your lawyer and enquire if they are on the lender panel. Otherwise you should get in touch with Alliance & Leicester who may be able to assist.

We have a mortgage agreed in principle with Santander. Croston conveyancing lawyers were selected. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from Santander?

Some lenders take longer than others. Have Santander conducted the valuation? Have you informed Santander as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the Santander conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.

I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Croston off the council. I have a mortgage agreed with TSB. Conveyancing is not something I have any knowledge of. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should use one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with TSB, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the TSB conveyancing panel.

I've read lots of mortgage guides, I note that they all recommend that you should get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Croston solicitor - who is on the Barclays conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. is that correct?

Barclays will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Barclays will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Croston surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one round the corner in Croston I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Croston for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?

If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be an issue. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

Due to exchange soon on a garden flat in Croston. Conveyancing solicitors assured me that they report fully tomorrow. What should I be looking out for?

Your report on title for your leasehold conveyancing in Croston should include some of the following:

    What you can do if another leaseholder in the building breaches a clause of their lease? You would want to be sent a copy of the lease Setting out your rights in relation to the communal areas in the building.For example, does the lease contain a right of way over an accessway or staircase? Where does the liability rest for maintaining the window frames Changes to the property
For a comprehensive list of information to be contained in your report on your leasehold property in Croston please enquire of your solicitor in advance of your conveyancing in Croston.

I invested in buying a 1st floor flat in Croston, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Corresponding flats in Croston with a long lease are worth £227,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 levied per year. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2093

With only 71 years unexpired we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £9,500 and £11,000 plus 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 detailed 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 getting professional advice.
