I have just started taking steps with the intention of porting my existing standard loan to a BTL Coventry Building Society mortgage. I have been informed by my broker that I need a conveyancer for this. I had a chat my previous Desford conveyancing firm who acted on my behalf when I first acquired the property. The costs estimate sent of £470 is an eye-watering amount to do this as I am not require purchase conveyancing - it’s simply a bog-standard refinance.

The estimate does seem a tad on the high side. If you shop around you may be able to shave off some of the cost by say £125.

About to place an offer on a leasehold flat in Desford. The estate agents say that it is the norm for flats in Desford to have less than 75 years unexpired on the lease. I am getting a mortgage with Chelsea Building Society. Is this going to be acceptable if the lease has 72 years to go.

Most leasehold conveyancing experts should be able to deal with a lease extension. if you are securing a mortgage then your lender may insist that the lease be extended before competition. Chelsea Building Society have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook in relation to minimum unexpired lease terms. As of 16/5/2022 the requirements read as follows :

Will commercial conveyancing searches reveal impending roadworks that may affect a commercial property in Desford?

Its becoming the norm that commercial conveyancing solicitors in Desford will perform a SiteSolutions Highways report as it dramatically cuts the time that conveyancers spend in researching accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Desford. The report provides definitive information on the adoption status of roads, footpaths and verges, as well as the implication of traffic schemes and the rights of way surrounding a commercial development sites in Desford.

For each commercial conveyancing transaction in Desford it is critical to investigate the adoption status of roads surrounding a site. Failure to identify developments where adoption procedures have not been addressed adequately could cause delays to Desford commercial conveyancing deals as well as pose a risk to future plans for the site. These searches are not carried out for domestic conveyancing in Desford.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one close by in Desford I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Desford suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you may request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.

I'm refinancing my existing property to a buy to let loan with HSBC Bank and I will use the ballance of the raised equity towards a second house. The area we are interested in is Desford. Will your solicitors be able to act for both sets of banks and link together the conveyances?

On the basis that they are your lawyer will be able to simultaneously deal with the two conveyancing matters but you should talk with you solicitor and communicate your expectations and requirements.

Been reading online that Desford solicitors are more expensive than Desford conveyancers in Desford when it comes to purchasing a house. So is it better if I use a conveyancer or a solicitor if I am purchasing for my home move in Desford.
