Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Darley Abbey

Am I correct in assuming that the fact that my solicitor in Darley Abbey is not identified on my mortgage company's conveyancing panel that there is a problem with the quality of the firm’s conveyancing?

That is more than likely an incorrect assumption to make. There are all sorts of perfectly reasonable explanations. Just recently a report by the solicitors regulator revealed 76% of law firms surveyed had been removed from at least one lender panel. The most common reasons for removal are: (1) lack of transactions (2) the lawyer is a sole practitioner (3) as part of the HSBC panel reduction (4) regulatory contact by SRA (5) accidental removal. Should you be concerned you should simply call the Darley Abbey conveyancing practice and ask them why they are no longer on the approved list for your mortgage company.

It has been 4 months following my purchase conveyancing in Darley Abbey took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £215,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the property from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

I am purchasing a new build house in Darley Abbey with a loan from Birmingham Midshires. The developers would not reduce the price so I negotiated £7000 of additionals instead. The property agent told me not to tell my conveyancer about the deal as it will adversely affect my mortgage with the bank. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I decided to have a survey carried out on a property in Darley Abbey in advance of retaining lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. Our surveyor advised that some lenders tend refuse to issue a mortgage on a flying freehold house.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Darley Abbey.

If all goes to plan we aim to complete the sale of our £425,000 apartment in Darley Abbey in 10 days. The managing agents has quoted £408 for Landlord’s certificate, building insurance schedule and 3 years service charge statements. Is the landlord entitled to charge exorbitant fees for a leasehold conveyance in Darley Abbey?

For the majority of leasehold sales in Darley Abbey conveyancing will involve, queries regarding the management of a building inevitably needing to be answered directly by the freeholder or its agent, this includes :

    Answering pre-contract enquiries Where consent is required before sale in Darley Abbey Supplying insurance information Deeds of covenant upon sale Registering of the assignment of the change of lessee after a sale
Your conveyancer will have no control over the level of the charges for this information but the average costs for the information for Darley Abbey leasehold premises is £350. For Darley Abbey conveyancing transactions it is customary for the seller to pay for these costs. The landlord or their agents are under no legal obligation to answer such questions most will be willing to do so - albeit often at exorbitant prices where the fees bear little relation to the work involved. Unfortunately there is no law that requires fixed charges for administrative tasks. Neither is there any legal time frame by which they are required to provide the information.

I purchased a 1st floor flat in Darley Abbey, conveyancing having been completed in 2000. 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? Similar properties in Darley Abbey with over 90 years remaining are worth £202,000. The ground rent is £60 charged once a year. The lease ends on 21st October 2081

With 57 years unexpired the likely cost is going to range between £28,500 and £33,000 as well as costs.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to provide the actual costs without more detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
