Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Denham

IfI was to acquire a freehold homein Denham mortgage fee and dispense with a survey and no local authority searches how much would I expect to have to pay for conveyancing in Denham?

Any savings you would make will be isolated to the costs for searches. Your property lawyer is required to do the vast majority of work - money laundering, communicating with the sellers conveyancing practitioner, stamp duty return, register the property etc. You might save a bit for them not having to register a charge but it will not be meaningful.

We see that you have a search directory identifying firms on the Co-operative conveyancing panel. Do companies pay you a referral fee if I retain them for our own conveyancing in Denham?

We are a listing service only for law firms wishing to communicate if they are on the Co-operative conveyancing panel or other lender panels. We do not charge referral fees to any conveyancer that you subsequently appoint for your conveyancing in Denham.

Does a directory service exist listing TSB panel solicitors in Denham on the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook Website?

No. There is no such tool on the CML or Building Society Association websites. A small selection of lenders make their panel listings visible online. If you are in need of a Denham lawyer on the TSB please use our tool.

After shopping around on the internet I have found a Denham solicitor having checked that they are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

Yorkshire BS will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Yorkshire BS 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 Denham 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.

After what seems like an age I have had an offer on an apartment in Denham agreed to, but there is a chain. The owners have offered on a flat, however it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other properties booked. I have selected a nearby conveyancing solicitor in Denham. What do I do now? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with Virgin Money?

It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then valuation, Denham conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you must ensure that your property lawyer is on the Virgin Money approved list. As to the subsequent phase this very much depends on the uniqueness of your case, attraction to this property and on the state of the market. During a hot market many home buyers will apply for a home loan with Virgin Money and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their property lawyer to press on with searches.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Denham I like with a park and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Denham for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.

I've recently bought a leasehold flat in Denham. Do I have any liability for service charges for periods before my ownership?

Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord to extend my lease without any joy. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on such issues? Can you recommend a Denham conveyancing firm to help?

Absolutely. We can put you in touch with a Denham conveyancing firm who can help.

An example of a Lease Extension decision for a Denham property is Flats 8, 11 and 15 Craigmore Court 46 Murray Road in December 2013. The tribunal held that the price payable by the Applicant tenant of Flat 8 to acquire an extended lease shall be £26,438 plus £1 to the intermediate lessee . The tribunal held that the price payable by the Applicant tenants of Flat 11 to acquire an extended lease shall be £26,791 plus £1 to the intermediate lessee. The tribunal held that the price payable by the Applicant tenant of Flat 15 to acquire an extended lease shall be £26,638 plus £1 to the intermediate lessee . This case related to 3 flats. The unexpired term as at the valuation date was 71 years.

Why is it not possible to complete my conveyancing in Denham on Good Friday?

This is due to the fact that on completion the purchase price needs to be transferred electronically between the banks of the purchaser and owner’s conveyancing practitioner and currently this can only happen on a working day. It is not possible to complete on a saturday or sunday either.
