Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Daventry costs more?

If you had a top tip for choosing a conveyancing solicitor in Daventry what would it be?

Do not opt for the lowest Daventry conveyancing fees. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in advance.

We had chosen conveyancers with offices in Daventry on the Leeds Building Society solicitor approved list. They have just invoiced me a further amount for dealing with the Leeds Building Society mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Leeds Building Society?

Unfortunately, so long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your conveyancer can levy a fee for this. This charge is not set by Leeds Building Society but by your Daventry lawyer. Numerous firms on the Leeds Building Society panel will levy an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.

It is not clear whether my lender requires a lease extension. I have called my Daventry building society branch on numerous occasions and was told it does not affect the mortgage offer and they will lend. My Daventry conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they will not lend based on their specific requirements. I simply don't know who is right.

Your solicitor must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook section two specifications for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company 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 lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Daventry. Conveyancing is daunting at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.

    Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Daventry is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Daventry are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Daventry you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Daventry may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

As co-executor for the estate of my uncle I am selling a property in Monmouth but reside in Daventry. My conveyancer (approximately 200 kilometers from meneeds me to sign a stat dec before completion. Can you recommend a conveyancing practitioner in Daventry who can attest this legal document for me?

strictly speaking you should not need to have the documents attested by a conveyancing solicitor. Ordinarily or notary public or solicitor will be fine regardless of whether they are Daventry based
