After scouring online forums for a recommended lawyer in Dereham, many comment that I must look for a CQS kitemarked lawyer. What is CQS?

The Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme is the recognised kitemark for legal experts in the legal transfer of properties, trusted by some of the UK's biggest mortgage companies. In 2011-12 the Conveyancing Quality Scheme was officially recognised by the Legal Ombudsman. CQS is not a scheme offered by the Society for Licensed Conveyancers. Dereham is one of the many areas in England and Wales where there are CQS lawyers.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up as part of conveyancing in Dereham?

Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Dereham. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

How does conveyancing in Dereham differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Dereham approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because builders in Dereham typically purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Dereham or who has acted in the same development.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £305k and identified one close by in Dereham I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, however it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Dereham for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

I have been advised by numerous selling agents in Dereham to select a property lawyer using your seach tool. What’s the financial inducement for Estate Agents to promote your lawyers rather than another?

We refuse to give any commission for directing people in our direction. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as home movers will think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ So we decided to step away from that.
