Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Derby

I went with a Derby based firm for our conveyancing in Derby yesterday. Upon checking the Terms and Conditions it is apparent thatI am on the hook for charges even where the transaction does not complete. Should I ditch them and instruct an on-line lawyer promising no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Derby?

Generally there is a concession along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will generally be uplifted to neutralise those conveyances that do not proceed. You should be mindful that such promotions generally do not cover expenses such your Derby conveyancing search costs.

We wanted to use a conveyancing solicitor in Derby for our house purchase. Our financial adviser informed us that our bank Skipton Building Society won't deal with them. Surely this is unduly restrictive?

A bank can require an approved conveyancer act for it. You would be expected to meet the cost of this. Try using our search facility to select a solicitor to carry conveyancing in Derby on the Skipton Building Society member panel.

It has been 2 months since my purchase conveyancing in Derby completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £150,000 when infact I paid £160,000. 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 residence 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'm remortgaging my existing home to a BTL loan with Britannia and I will use the ballance of the raised equity as a deposit on a second property. The location we are interested in is Derby. Will your conveyancers be able to act for both sets of mortgage companies and link together the transactions?

Make use of our comparison tool on this page to ensure that the solicitors are approved by both banks. Assuming that they are your conveyancer will be able to tie up the two conveyancing matters but you should have a chat with you solicitor and specify your desired outcome and needs.

I am a negotiator for a busy estate agency in Derby where we have experienced a few flat sales derailed as a result of leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have received conflicting advice from local Derby conveyancing solicitors. Could you shed some light as to whether the seller of a flat can initiate the lease extension formalities for the purchaser on completion of the sale?

Provided that the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the buyer can avoid having to wait 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed before, or at the same time as completion of the disposal of the property.

An alternative approach is to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.

I am the registered owner of a 2 bed flat in Derby, conveyancing formalities finalised 5 years ago. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Comparable properties in Derby with over 90 years remaining are worth £195,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 levied per year. The lease finishes on 21st October 2087

You have 63 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £16,200 and £18,600 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive investigations. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other concerns that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.

I’m about to sell my ground floor apartment in Derby.Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon but I have recently had a half-yearly service charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?

The sensible thing to do is discharge the invoice as normal because all rents and service charges should be allottedon completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process
